After reading numerous forums and learning about tires, the benefits of upgrade, benefits of Alloys vs Steel wheel I finally decided to short list the two upgrade options.
      Hi , your car looks stunning with the upgrade.

      so far hows your feedback about Sail UVA..? i do have below requirement for my new car can SAIL hatchback full fill that..?

      1: Saftey [ ABS and driver airbag must]
      2: Ride comfort , especially rear seat users should feel comfortable in the journey [ should be able to manage indian road conditions with out much jerk] . with minimal bodyroll.

      thanks in advance

      Not the whole warranty. If there are going to be suspension issues, GM has the right to protest/deny to honor warranty. However as far as I know this happens in cases where your Tyre upsize exceeds 3% threshold.

      I cannot tell you what to purchase, this much I know that I would never buy another Chevrolet vehicle again. The Sail U-VA is good and all, the after sale service is terrible. The technical guys are incompetent, car wash folks will actually dirty your car more. The maintenance cost however is much more affordable if you compare Fiat, Hyundai and Toyota. I do not have any document to prove this theory at the moment. The guys screwed up the wheel alignment of my car and when I went to fix the issue, they made it worse. They don't have any special equipment to check alignment. Everything is jugaad! I spent 800 rupees outside and with laser precision fixed the allignment. The car drives in a straight line now without any pull to the side.

      I maintain my car, because I love "cars" in general. I'd trade this car for a better one any day!

      I have not seen much body roll in the Sail - UVA. Nothing special to mention about your ABS airbag requirement. Why dont you check out the VW Polo TSI GT?? If I could sell this car, I'd go for that hands down!

      Am planning for petrol as my running will be less than 500km per month.

      And my max budget will be 7L on road , and polo will be exceeding that.
