@Mods - move or delete the thread if you think it's not relevant or been posted in the wrong section. Did any of you read the current Overdrive whrere they have compared the diesel hatches. Wow, people who have read it know what I am takling about. I couldn't scan the pages of Overdrive where they have written the comparison of the hatches, however here's a mail written by Mr. ******* directly to the great man who has written some awesome reviews. The purpose of this post is to create some awareness how magazines drive people's mind towards some cars by giving false info and whoever's interested can write to Overdrive guys directly. The reviews were very disturbing. Imagine Punto and body roll. There are lot of other interesting stuffs too. From: *********@hotmail.com To: email@example.com CC: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: March 2011 Issue Date: Tue, 1 Mar 2011 Dear Sirish, I was a regular overdrive reader for many years now and I have also filled my 3 yr subscription. On this month's cover you have compared the " premium Diesel Hatches". I just cannot believe my eyes as to how biased and conterdict are you tests. It has been seen from Palio's times that you have always have just 1or 2 good things to say but always make the readers belive " hey don't but a Fiat" For your Info Fiat with collebration made the CRDI engine, without which I am sorry we would still have those Direct or In Direct Ind Engines and never would have a clear Euro-3 emissions. You have been saying earlier is Punto has the best bled of handling and ride, and beggs for more power, and now Punto has immence Body Roll ??? Also does Polo High Line cost less than 90 ps Punto ? If you are not sure please be kind enough to go and re check your prices, because in Bangalore a friend of mine purchased a 90 ps 2010 model for 7.50lk ON ROAD price ( mainly discounts because of the 2010 model) and for your Info a person paid over 8lk for a VW Polo and also a FYI if you did not know Polo Highline comes with only 4 15inch alloys spare gets a 14 inch steel, which you can never expect from Fiat's. I am sure Sirish you don't even know half the features of what Punto has becasue if you do you will know as a matter of fact you did not even bother to say that almost a decade back Palio and Sienea petrol 1.2 and 1.6 L engines had 32 bit micro processor and none of the cars even had those. You always have shown Hyundai and Suzuki as the best along side with VW, which not just tells me but even my friends say that you are not a indipendent writer. No Magizine would come up so high without having support of few car companies so that they can advertise there cars and you not just know how to fool public. These cars when they come to India they loose out many features which is available outside but still does does not matter your reviews. I chellange you display this email on the front " Mailbox" page but you will not I know nor I would also receive any reply to this as well. You were one of the most biggest factors for Car companies like Fiat to go down with it's Sales with no less fault of it's own, because if you drive a Punto or a Linea trust me no other Flimsy built cars can even come close, they have some issue but they address it with full attention and not treat us like Hyundai. Just to end this Sirish I have not just lost trust but also like how I stopped myself and few of my friends to buy Autocar India almost a year back and pay 125/ now to buy overdrive thinking you guys are not like the Autocar Guys, hightly Manuplative, but this month's review shows how can you not just lie but convencie people to get fooled to buy a VW Polo or a Swift or Ritz or a I10 or a I20, even if you want to, you can also make Santro still the best small Hatch Back in the Country. This would be my last ever Overdrive purchase, I would better off not buy a Overdrive magzine and waste Rs 125/ on a editor and his crew Bullshitting about VW,Huyndai or Maruti Suzuki cars. Thank you for taking some time in reading my " Stinker " to you and I hope you change your ways from acting like a media to only few companies which pays to a media who is Indipendent in his reviews and knows what he his doing. PS: Worst Magzine along side Auto Car India for showing such Cheap and Paid Reviews from your Favourite Car Makers.
