      Dev11 - I think anonymous would like to know if you have blacklisted the manufacturer(s) of the cars that you currently own .i.e. would you consider the brand(s) or not?

      I would consider all including the same manufacturer, but the deal should be tempting.
      By the way, both of our (wife's and mine) cars are hyundai.

      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.
      Which I interpreted as, "while going for a new car what causes me to ignore the brand that I am presently having, even though there are no dissatisfaction as such. May be something going in the back of mind or human psychology may be the reason!"

      Well, "exploring new things" is what the mind always want to do, by default, naturally!

      For me its Honda first! ALWAYS!!

      Whenever we are on hunt for a car we start by Honda's Cars available and if they match our requirements then we are good to go!
      We are happy Honda customers from '04

      I have voted for Yes.

      Happy Car (All New Honda City) has been a reliable car all these four plus years I have been owning and driving it. I have been happy with the purchase, and post purchase and service experience offered by HONDA Cars India. I would certainly consider HONDA whenever I buy my next car.

      Having said that, my current vehicle might remain with me for next 2 years, I would start the search for the replacement hopefully by end of year 2014. I will certainly driven by the following factors for making the decision

      * Individual and Family needs for commuting
      * Availability of Second Vehicle (4 wheeler) in the household
      * Overall budget for the vehicle on total cost of ownership basis
      * Brand Reputation, Service Reputation
      * Product Safety, Reliability, Performance, Features, Value for Money, Maintenance costs
      * Fuel Economy
      * Overall design, looks and feel
      * Overall Company status, outlook, past performance
      * Eagerness of the Dealer to sell me the car
      * Dealership Experience, Ease of purchase
      * Opinion of the family members viz. wife, daughter and brother about the vehicle, company, dealerships
      * Opinion of the friends, colleagues, fellow gearheads about the vehicle, company, dealerships

      I own a global Fiesta which is 2 years old and a 2 month old Honda Brio , If I am replacing my Fiesta after next 4 years, I am looking for the Ford Focus if it is launched in India, may be by 2017. I had a Hyundai i20 crdi Asta (2009) which was replaced by Ford exactly after 2 years due to the frequent niggles and company was also not responsive to the complaints I raised to them directly so when I start looking for a new car, I just blacklisted Hyundai.

      When I started looking for a small hatch for my wife, I even didnt check i10 Auto which was roughly 1.7 lac cheaper to Honda Brio AT due to the best experience I had owning a Hyundai. I am not a Hyundai basher, they make good cars but I learned a lot from Hyundai.

      I am very happy with Ford for the last 2 years and looking forward to use the car for the next 4 years more, company is very responsive, service costs are cheaper and in acceptable levels. In-fact Ford has learned a lot from their previous models, improved their attitude towards customers, brought up customer friendly service centers and they make solid and long lasting cars, which is also cheaper to maintain now a days.

      Some may say it has bad resale value, but for me, it is the ownership experience and comfort that matters and not a futuristic value when I sell my car.

      Even I will prefer the same manufacturer because the ASS will be known to me and always it gives a comfort zone to talk to the knows persons, Specially if I know who is what!!

      The conditions will be is the same manufacturer will be able to serve my requirement by the product range they have or not.. Yes choice and tastes matter here
      Thanks for reading my Post....
