Good engine. experienced the use of abs. thanks to abs...Great go.Safe go.
agreed - after salem the bypass to coimbatore was too open and hence I was tempted to push figo to its limits - and was saved by ABS at one occasion where I noticed a guy in a two wheeler suddenly come into the middle of the road by driving across the median to cross the road.. for a second I thought that guy is dead today - but the moment I pressed the brakes I then realized the car can pullover to another side as the steering was still free for me so I had the chance to pull to the left lane and missed him by few feet.
The shock for me was this guy who came into the right lane by crossing the median.. did not drive to the left lane and instead he just stopped right there in the middle of right lane. I stopped and shouted at this guy and he just said.. sorry sir I didn't notice you coming - I said please do not do this infront of a car try it infront of a truck you will be more lucky..
But yes this guy was really saved by the ABS. Another lesson is my wife initially did not want to go for the high end model of Figo and said why waste money on something that won't be of any use but now she realized the importance. So another reason for me to buy a fully loaded model of a car next time :)
