      Cars that captured your heart at first sight! Share your story here.

      I wanted to ask this question for almost an year.

      Has any car made a dent in your heart at first sight so much so that you started spotting only that car among many other cars on road and it made you smile every time?

      Reason for asking this question
      Ford Figo was launched when I did not have any plans to buy my first car. But the moment I saw the Figo on road it made a mark in my heart. I wanted this car. I always had that wide grin whenever a Figo passed me. That had never ever happened before. Around 1.5 years after figos launch I finally decided to buy a hatchback. Figo was one of the cars shortlisted by family. Though everyone was pushing towards i10 I was not able to take my mind off Figo. That car simply made me smile every time I took a corner hard. Call me foolish but I used to see figos everywhere on road before the waiting period was over and I got the car.

      Mods, Did not know where to put this, please feel free to move.

      +100 to that ! I have always felt that the punch line for figo owners should be "See a corner and you'll smile"

      I was also wondering why people are congratulating you

      Edit: I'm not sure what exactly are you posting. Are you asking others which cars captured their hearts at first sight and then giving your example? Or, are you simply posting your experience of seeing Figo for first time?

      I was trying to recollect where I saw your handle. It felt familiar. Now got it.
      Your post look like a new buyer. Hence confused.

      For some odd reason, I seem to have completely missed your ownership report! So the congrats still holds good

      Then you should change the title to "Which car captured your heart at first sight?" otherwise be prepared for more congratulations to pour in for your "new" Figo
