This time again the debate of going to either this place or that place started turning a little acrimonious but I again intervened and handled the situation. It wasn’t the case before we purchased Liva but now as we all 5 can comfortably travel in Liva, this scene has become more a common sight at home. Even my wife just refuses to bend on her demands and continue to support her choice of place against my children. This is tough problem for me but it reflects the love Liva is getting from my family.

Before Liva we used to hardly go outside together because of the space problem. Either my wife used to be at home or one of my son because it was simply impossible to take 5 in a car. Going of whole family together was a rare event and if we had to go somewhere collectively we used to hire a cab.

But now things have literally changed and Liva has made our bondages stronger than before. Even with 5 persons inside the car,  Liva has many spare spaces like the glove box which has the AC provision and the pockets which are large. Liva though have the ABS and EBD but why they haven’t provided the airbags as standard one is out of my understanding. I feel these safety are essential in a vehicle and manufacturers must provide these things as the standard. 

Also the dickey of my car is fairly large and I think no other car has the same amount of large volume. If anybody is looking for 5 persons car which can sit comfortable his/her whole family, I recommend them the Liva from my own experience.

One of my major grouse is cabin quality. Being a Toyota car I thought that it would be good and sober but now it seems that my estimate was wrong about Liva. I am not very happy with the red colour on seats and for me it would be better if they hadn’t provided this at all. I would be more comfortable without this glaring red colour and even totally grey seats would be OK with me.

I am not impressed by the quality of my car as it feels a bit crude and down market. Plastics are not good and nobody thinks it is a good cabin. My son often talks about his friend’s car which has the phone connecting facility and I miss that in my Liva. Though I ask him back, what whether that car has the cooling in the front glove box but still I think cooling is useful only in the summer but phone connecting is useful forever and I want that to be in a Toyota car, irrespective of the price we pay.

Also sometimes I feel engine is bit slow to react in punch and after driving Swift of my colleague, this feeling has become more painful. I really don’t want to compare but driving his 3 years old Swift left me completely numb. I was totally mesmerized by performance of his Swift and then when I again got behind my car I really felt sad because the performance of Liva is nowhere close to his Swift. Although I have now accepted this reality but I have no hesitation in saying that I want my car to envy Swift's performance.
