Problem?[confused] I didn't get you mate?



Actually New Dzire looks grows on you after some time and most would start liking it. I got this comments from many New Dzire owners. But in my opinion old Dzire looked much better and also had a large boot compared to new one. I went for Dzire Tour LDi only because of this reason. 460L of boot space for placing couple of subwoofers and still lots of space left for luggage usage.

I think Amaze has much more powerful engine than Dzire and also is very quick compared to Dzire. But Amaze has terrible interiors not worthy of 9L price tag and Honda's unknown service costs for their first diesel car in India are the negatives. (Parts availability will be another issue)

i just don't like the turbo lag region[evil] that's it


and well with the availability of parts, as per the showroom guys, they said it won't be taking too much of delay. and yes amaze's interior would've been better [cry]

Availability of parts can be judged only after car gets 1-2 years old in Indian market. Showroom guys have rarely been honest na?[;)]

but they promised to give my broken ORVM a guaranteed replacement part within 7 days, and that's why i said so [roll][angel]
A friend of mine had a different experience sourcing parts for his Jazz. His car had met with a minor accident and it was in service center in Trivandrum for more than 2 months due to unavailability of certain parts. Situation might have changed now. Don't know as i have never been to their showroom so can't comment about it myself.

DIY on Broken ORVM Indicator

Had Once Posted about my ORVM indicator being broken by a stupid truck Driver on his carelessness and was trying for a permanent way out of it without actually getting the ORVM replaced by shelling some K's of money and finally it ended up in another DIY :cool:

As i was Doubhtful about the warranty norms , first i went to svc to make it clear that nothing will happen to my warranty and later asked themselves for removing the ORVM cap
