VISITOR Hi, good afternoon
VISITOR I need a few suggestions for buying a new car
AGENT what would these be
VISITOR Actually I am looking for a Car with space, safety feature, and good engine with a decent mileage. Looking for petrol only. New Platinum Etios is in my mind and i kind of like Toyota. Getting confused with some negative reviews like shock handling, noise, vibration, and bad paint quality.
AGENT I am honestly surprised, the car has just been launched, how one understands pain quality in 15 days. Plus have you test driven the car?
VISITOR No the reviews were for the old models
VISITOR and I guess only minimal changes are there in new one
AGENT I think Toyota cars are good, they are known for long lasting engines and reliability
AGENT Please test drive the car, ask for a longish drive and tick every item yourself, and to do that, follow these steps
AGENT For shock-ups - you sit in the rear seat and ask the salesman to drive it over bumps and rough road at diff speeds, with windows rolled up and stereo switched off - hear the noise and also feel harshness on road bumps
AGENT Space - its easy - get 5 people to sit along with you in the car at the showroom, you sit in the middle in the rear seat and experience how you feel. Check the headroom by just feeling the distance from top of your head to the roof
AGENT Safety - you need at least front two airbags and ABS, then it should be alright for city drive
AGENT Features - dependent on the model you buy
AGENT Mileage - subtract ARAI by 30% to get a good estimate of real life mileage
AGENT Hope this helps
VISITOR Thanks a lot,
