https://www.outlookindia.com/website/st ... ued/328601

8 seats with around 800 kg OEW, who can beat that? And it's not even high tech. The engine is cast iron, not cast aluminum.

It has a leaf spring behind. That means the car starts shaking at 70 km/ h. But with 40 km/ h over a potholed road it's good fun. I love this car. My wife gets dizzy in cars with spring suspension all round. But she is o.k. in this car.

Normally cars are supposed to have two break circuits. Front left and rear right is one, front right and rear left is the other. This car has only one circuit. For this and some other safety reasons it was discontinued recently. Laws are improving.

I paid new 4300 Euro or so. Some buttons and stuff spoil from time to time. They cost below 1 $, but require attention. I guess in rich countries it's preferred to pay five times the price for triple the life. Who wants to attend to something like this?
But this car was for bakers, taxi drivers and others that want utility at low price. Obviously today's taxis are different.

It has good lights and good disc breaks in front. It had to be discontinued as there are more and more fast cars.

I removed one bench and have good loading area.


Isn't there an age limit on private cars in India, 10 years and then scrapped?

It's just quite rare for cars to still be in production, virtually unchanged, for that long. Usually only cars with specific niches will stay around this long. For instance the Land Rover Defender, the Mercedes G class or the UAZ Bukhanka.

Usually, the basic car design is retired after around 10 to 15 years. And during that time the car will often get one or two mayor and several minor facelifts to hide the age to the consumer.

Your car looks pretty much unchanged from its original 1970s design. Nothing wrong with that, it's quite characterful actually, just a bit surprising.

It's a forward control deathtrap, I haven't seen anything like that for a very long time. Almost all the vans sold nowadays have front mounted engines.

Got a few going as always, a kia Rio for not costing anything, Mini Cooper for wifey to drive, Mitsubishi L200 to actually get stuff done (a pickup without mud on it and shiny wheels is as much a posers car as a Porsche boxster) and the pride of place goes to the Zetor 7340, it might only top out at 25MPH but I guarantee it will beat anything mentioned so far in a drag race...

That's indeed the problem. And that's why it was discontinued. In curves I go from the gas to slow down, just in case an idiot overtakes without visibility. I also always have my light on.

There is one more van which is safer. But it is also seven cm broader. When cows are sitting on the road or somebody parks his car (or even bike) in an unfortunate place, these seven cm often matter. I can't understand how one likes to buy a broad car in India.

Even more important: that other van has spring suspension all round, not good for my wife.
That other van is really an eight seater. If I remove the rear bench there is a step in the loading area. I need the van for the loading area, not for the seats.

On the other side one settles naturally at 60-70 km/ h. It simply feels shaky above that speed because of the rear suspension.
I observed with scooter that 60 km/ h is a quite save speed. Already at 70 km/ h the dangerous situations increase extreme in frequency. That phenomenon isn't that extreme with cars, but it does exist.
This car therefore has comparatively few accidents.
I know a guy with the same car who drives maximum 50 km/ h.
But I also knew one taxi driver who died in that car.

2019 Ford Escape Titanium. Spec'ed by me and leased. Every option except a sunroof. Even ordered it with a factory-installed engine block heater and Class II receiver hitch. The 2.0 liter turbocharged engine goes like hell.

2015 VW Jetta 2L with a 5 speed stick. Looking to replace it with something that has a better power to weight, perhaps a GTI or Civic SI, comes down to what I can find and what color they will sell it in.

Isn't the Civic a little light? I would think the GTI would be beefier.

I'd prefer the lower weight in fact, essp given the Civics are at 205 hp vs the GTI at 228 and the 200-300lbs weight difference does well to offset that. Color for the GTI does seem to also be an issue as they keep moving what trim gets any shade of Blue. Not to mention it can be hard to find one with three pedals. I do wish they would just sell a Jetta GLI in blue, because aside from the lack of power and slightly floaty ride of my Jetta, I love everything else about it.

The Alfa is beautiful but out of my range- company car driver. Years ago had a 156 GTA with a few extras. That was a great car.

I have a 2016 Golf GTD with DSG in Oryx white. Looks great and is a lot of car for the money. Never going back to a stick. Only done 39K miles as it spent a lot of time at airport car park and for last year mostly sits on the drive.

For tax purposes I’ve finally chosen a BMW PHEV due April - it’s less than half the monthly tax of the golf despite having the 2.0L petrol engine and RRP over £18K more.

330e MSport Pro XDrive in Oxide Grey with the black wheels and a Comfort Plus pack. Rather excited about this. Have screwed up by not ordering the advanced cruise control- that’s fabulous on the Golf. Comes to a complete stop following traffic and just takes a touch of the accelerator to start off again.

Also have 2006 Honda Fireblade that’s only done about 800 miles in last 7 years. Keeping it more for the nostalgia than any interest in riding.

Edited to add:

Was trying to secure an e-Mustang. Would only go for the extended range (standard listed as 270 miles) to make it a reasonable prospect but it was 10k more than the standard. That’s an insane amount of money for a basically identical car with another 100 miles range. And it pushed it over monthly budget. It’s quite a good looking car and the tax is zero this year and ten quid a month next year.

I'm assuming the 2.Slow and not the 2.0 TSI?

Iron Blue Metallic really suits the GTI, hoping they bring it back for the Mk8s. Lots of 3 pedals to choose from still in Canada, including the Iron Blue and Cornfield Blue. Only one trim level available for the remaining Mk7s though. With the 240hp available with the new Gen 4 EA888, might be worth the wait, if you can deal without having anymore physical knobs/buttons.

Yep the 2.slow lol. I think I like the Cornflower blue but sadly state side looks to only be on the SE trim which really jumps that msrp right up there, it also seems like the dealers around here only get 3 pedals on the boring colors. However it seems like our Honda dealers have 3 pedal Civic Sports and SIs in blue often and at very good prices too. I'm very torn as my last car was a 08 Civic EX which i kinda miss as it had better power and less bulk than the jetta but being 7 years older didn't have the same equipment.

Very nice. I have the extremely poor man's version of this, an 06 Saab 9-3 manual sedan with the 4 cyl. It will hustle okay, but nothing like your car.

Also have a 99 Range Rover that is pretty clean and nice. Almost got an 81 Porsche 928 off craigslist. I am CHEAP.

Had a Civic with manual transmission.
I, like you, thought it was THE indestructible, everlasting car.
One of my current cars is a Hyundai Ioniq EV.

At least the same build quality but 1/100 the moving parts.
I’m sure it can last for 100years if I replace the 12V battery every few years.

It's an excellent car, sadly I think it will be my last conventionally powered vehicle, I'm going to drive her for a long time, or until someone can sell me a BEV with a genuine 1000km winter range.


I had a 3.0L TDI Quattro avant version in France a few years ago - same model year, Munich registered. It was such a solid car. Built like a bank vault. No touch screen however was infuriating. One of our group was told to enter his hotel address in the satnav, then started tapping the circular array of letters on the screen and wondered why nothing happened...

No, at that time in the Audi world, touch screen hadn’t been discovered yet!) Very funny. :)

The car was superb and took masses of stuff with ease. It was always quite hard driven and heavily loaded as is usual for a support car but it did everything without complaint.

Amazing car isn't it? We got one last year to replace our first gen Zoe, and the difference is just mind boggling. Build quality to match BMW (Tesla, go have a look xD), nice looks, very comfy and most important of all: It's so damn efficient! While a lot bigger than Zoe it actually consumes less, I regularly manage to drive it below 10kWh/100km when it's not too cold.

My long range ride for the Autobahn is still my beloved 2008 BMW 7 Series long version with a "few" enhancements :hyper:

Image

- Brand new BMW M67D44 4.4 litre V8 twin turbo diesel engine fitted in 2018
- AGR reduction to 10VOL%
- Turbocharger pressure adaption to 450HP, 1000Nm torque
- New ZF 6HP32Z gearbox with software matching the engine output
- Ceramic brakes all round
- Adaptive drive pneumatic suspension

Drives 1000km at 200km/h and still has fuel in the tank after doing so. Top speed is at 305km/h hitting the rev limiter at 4000rpm, it could rev to 4500rpm but there's just no need.
I'm keeping it in mint condition, it will never be sold.

Knock on wood/Thank God, my 2020 Toyota Corolla SX (6 speed stick) is living up to Toyota quality and fun to drive. Personally, I'm not a fan or follower of the SUV/Crossover fad in the States. Back many years I had an 86 Toyota (Front Drive) Celica GT Coupe 5 Speed. Its a shame they dropped the Celica. Though Front Drive, was a fun to drive car. So is my 2020 Corolla. I'm one of the few, the proud stick shift drivers in the USA! Though a sedan, if Toyota made a front drive Celica ST, this would be the closest in driveability.

My wife, who is in no way, shape or form a car person is losing her mind over the Ioniq 5, there is something about the exterior that is calling to me as well, it's reminding me of a car from my youth, but I can't put a finger on it.
