I hate the rattling in my safari. only issue is to increase the sound system volume. someday there is no rattle and someday it rattles like anything.

braking is very medicore given the power and weight of the car. I have gone to after market brake pads and it's satisfying but get's worn out quickly.

Some of my personal observations for my interest from my nano 2012
1. missing 3 point seat belt in rear(still not available why?)
2. back pain while driving(don't know less under thigh support-"new to that", or skinny seats )
3. no boot opening(flipping rear seat do the job but still a miss)
4. its sound inside and outside(not much but after seeing twist "yes")
5. Hazard light switch on the steering column(broken switch cap not comes spare, any idea available in outer market?)
6. no glove box(do not like the additional fit on dash board, if they want can easily done on same dashboard.)
7. useless headrest
8. Wiper sound(changed wiper blade sound again came after 1 days.)
9. Parcel tray attached with the rear seat by flimsy 2 plastic joints(broken because of JBL 6X9 weight, twist has fixed tray on rear "good")
10. no provision for speakers in door(twist's dash board speaker cover is ok).

Honda Brio:

1. Long Clutch, and it can not be adjusted by service center [frustration]
2. Low sitting position
3. No automatic door lock after attending certain speed (Humble Alto 800 has this feature).
4. Spare tire position in the Trunk i.e. tire valve is downside, you need to remove tire to fill air.
5. Gap between window glass and door panel, this leads to rattling of glass if door is closed with partially rolled window.

Beat D:


  • Poorly tuned gear ratios. 1st gear is tractor short (Slip the clutch or spin the wheels, your choice), 2nd is short, 3rd is long, 4th and 5th don't have much difference
  • Rattles on bad roads
  • More Rattles on bad roads
  • Too many rattles on bad roads
  • Yet some more rattles on bad roads
  • Some niggles apart from the common ones
  • Thing aged too quickly
  • Mileage has taken a dip in recent times
  • It's old now
  • The resale value
  • Some ridiculous rough edges. Like, the power window switches are not backlit. I mean, seriously?

Nissan Sunny:
- Not so inspiring interiors
- Feather light build
- Brake
- Engine noise

Esteem: Low Seating
My lancer petrol.
1. Low sitting.
This is something I love in these cars (both my favorite) I agree it isn't practical, but it is of my liking (not a choice when I have to travel with my parents)
Wagon r 2003 model
1.Engine underpowered
2.Unstable after-110 kmph,Its a city cruiser.
In 2003 it was one of the best performing car in that segment. As time passed our need for higher power increased gradually / drastically.
Speaking about 110kmph stability in Wagon-R, that is made in that manner (blame the tall boy design)
What I feel truly in my car [Hyundai i20 Asta- Year 2011]
- high ground clearance
- big 16" tyre
- ESP+TCS
These were your requirements, bit OT from the thread.

Skoda Rapid- Lack of features and safety features
ASS
4 seater- Make five people sit and the person sitting in the middle will be your enemy of life. ( I can bet on it)
Mileage
Toyota Etios- Feather like build quality
Looks- It looks absolutely pathetic! You like the design from the front then when you move to the side your first reach is - WHAT THE HELL! It looks like half SUV and half sedan
and when you reach the rear of the 2012 model. Thats a deal breaker! But we bought it because of the space it offered.
Interior quality is really bad
The silver on the steering wheel starts to fade off after a year or so.
