Hi Friends, I have been considering getting my first car since last 1 year (already 1.5yrs into marriage) and getting confused day by day. First up I do not know driving yet so most of my perception has been gathered looking at forms like this, carwale, teambhp etc. I am around 6'1 in height and our family has evolved from Girraffes . My parents do come up to our place for few months so Front and Rear leg room is important It should be diesel - Want to take many long drives Should be value for money ABS must. Airbag optional. During our recent trip to Goa I have seen even Innova skidding Budget between 6.5 - 7.5l OTR Most Important - Must bring out a smile while driving I have given my heart to Punto since the day I saw it on road for the first time and BNW the color, but after seeing so many niggling issues in various forums, some minor and some major, I am feeling too very nervous even too consider it. Also paying most of my savings and getting into trouble from day 1(as in some case) is very disheartening. Fellow members can help me out here. Also any pointers about ASS in Bangalore will be helpful. Finally if there are people here who are planning to buy Punto can come togehter for Group purchase and try to negotiate with dealers.
