      Do you consider same manufacturer while searching for another car for you?

      Few days ago I received a PM from fellow Gearhead (Sorry buddy, don't remember your name and can't find your PM in my inbox) when this thought struck to my mind.

      I have been a happy owner of Tata Indica for close to 8 years. I am overall happy with the car and Tata's after sales service. I have clocked close to 190000 KM and its still running fine without any major issue.
      Having said that, when I started searching for new car, Tata was not there in my list. I didn't do it deliberately and really do not know why none of the Tata car was on my list.

      When I booked Honda Amaze and started my thread to share my booking experience, I received a PM from, person had asked, why no Tata Manza?
      I stared at this PM for few seconds and thought, Manza is really a nice car, wait, Vista is another option, I could have considered. Why the hell, didn't I consider any car from Tata early.

      I still do not know the answer. May be, I wanted to try another brand this time but really do not know.

      So I thought of creating this thread to see your response.

      I bash and thrash Maruti but I always seem to circle back to it after reading/hearing horror stories about other manufacturers.

      Well i can guess an answer that why you didn't consider something else..maybe cz you had already set amaze as your next car (in your mind).
      Something similar happened with me as well couple of years back. I already own a honda city and had to replace my santro xing. i had already set my eyes on the i20 which narrowed me down to exploring just 2-3 options.
      Now i realize that i did not even consider honda jazz. I love my i20 but hey, jazz is not bad either.

      This has been kind of trend with Maruti owners I think (Reminds me of a movie "Mere dad ki Maruti") My friend who currently owns Maruti Alto, was searching for new car. When I told him about Amaze and that I had booked one for me, he also went to Honda showroom, took a small test drive and booked the base model. Its been a month now since he had booked and now he seems to be changing his mind and thinking about Dezire lol

      I most of the time, took an item only after getting full satisfaction on that product by taking suggestions from the known ones, by reading product reviews.

      Well, for me, I would be buying a car and not the company.

      I would be looking for a car with features and characteristics of my liking and further a car which satisfies the purpose of buying. Obviously Manufacturer's DNA and Dealer's bio-data will play role if no other option is available fulfilling the above criteria!

      All this, of course, that will fit into my budget.
