    DRIVING:
    Few hundred kilometers
    1. Buying experience: I would definitely give 5 star for the pre sales service. Raghavendra from Mahavir Skoda made the process buttery smooth. Right from bringing the car for test drive till I purchased everything was handled well. 2. One of the best things about this car is the steering experience and accuracy. It will never make you feel like car is going against your control. It simply makes you feel like you have full control. over the vehicle and cornering is something which deserves a special mention. I purchased automatic which made my life more easy. Driving in traffic was never this fun. Once the car surpasses 2000 rpm the actual fun starts with the vehicle. It will make you feel buttery smooth at higher speeds. This car definitely made me feel like drive drive and drive. 3. Looks vise it is age old design which still manages you to fell in love with it. Performance is the best part about this vehicle. It simply makes you fall in love with the performance. It is just 999 cc engine but very well fine tuned and it never feel like a smaller engine. Cabin noise is really less when compared to other vehicles. This car is highly performance seeking vehicle which never disappoints any driving enthusiast. 4. Servicing is something which I will comment later as it's been only 10 days since I purchased this vehicle and my first official service is scheduled for next year Feb. 5. Pros: 1. Build quality 2. Premium look and design which ages really well 3. Safety 4. Driving and steering accuracy 5. Performance and braking and confidence it gives while driving 6. Very well fine tuned engine Cons: 1. Definitely interior should have been better. It is 10 year old design and there is no change since its launch. 2. Only major con I felt in these 10 days is when you try to stop the vehicle from higher speed near a traffic signal and when you want to accelerate car doesn't offer any power. You need to press the throttle real hard and get the car going. 3. After spending 11.4 lakhs I expect some more features as competition is offering almost 10 times the features this car has. 4. Instrument calibrated is a big let down it doesn't even show you average mileage and round trip which are even found in4 lakh car. Overall except these minor cons car is definitely worth the buy it definitely puts a smile on face every time you drive.
