Hi Friends This is Rohit Mahajan from Phagwara ( Punjab ), Marketing Guy by profession and Driver by Passion. Working for A textile company ( JCT LTD). Enjoyed K10 for over 2 years Alto K10 VXI 2010 November Purchase Price : 2.7 lac ( used purchased in 19[SUP]th[/SUP] April 2011 with 4300 km on ODO) ADDED BY ME : Reverse Cam, Bluetooth, Pioneer ICE, Cotton Super comfort seat Covers, Teflon coating etc Sold on : 21.12.13 Sold Price : Rs 2.25 Lacs Was fully enjoying with my lovely K10 but following was concerns 1. Increasing petrol prices , My monthly run is close to 1500 kms ( 1000 on highway and 500 local) 2. Safety – Car was stable at high speed but being 4 person on boar, it was bit shaky on highway when some heavy vehicles passes by. Breaking was pathetic with skinny tyres 3. Well I said driver by passion – Basic grunt, Raw power was missing. The search started in mid 2013, as a common Indian it started with “ kitna deti hai “ and “ Resale Kaisa hai”. Evaluated following cars 1. Swift VDI – Liked the shape and grunt, but didn’t wanted to be a part of Herd. And it is simply overpriced. 2. RITZ – A driver’s car but , Somehow shape was not acceptable to family. 3. MICRA – immediately dropped when my son said “ Its Ladies car Papa” 4. VISTA – Believe me its sheer value for money, BUT taxi image questioned its qualification. 5. BEAT – Underpowered, and basically a city car. 6. FIGO – Very low ground clearance, It touched almost every speed breaker During TD, and less pick up in first two gears. 7. PULSE – GREAT CAR , but again service network and shape was concerned. October 2013 was almost over and the search was still ON. My Boss have linea EMOTION and I liked it very much but it was out of budget. Somewhere in end November Punto popped in my mind. Went to showroom and have seen the CAR thoroughly and found it interesting. On 20[SUP]th[/SUP] december went to Fiat Showroom Jalandhar along with family for TD, During TD I crossed the speed breaker at 60kmph which we used to cross in 1[SUP]st[/SUP] or second gear in my K10, and all were surprised with ground clearance and comfort. On same day we booked the car for 30/12 delivery.
