    Forgot to mention i have completed around 4000 KM run still the avg coming as 10-11 KMPL in diesel, Steering vibration/Noise, Dealer waiting parts from GM wow, Engine Milege they say its normal, Cabin noise they say it will come for diesel what a service, Wecare@gm does not bother to response....poor service, very dissapointed with this car, thinking of selling in loss of around 2 lacs in just 4months.

    I Bought a SAIL SEDAN LT DIESEL and within a month problem started , the car emits a heavy black smoke and very poor mileage of 8 or 9. after servicing it for 3 to 4 times in the authorized service center nothing got improved , and when contacted the show room , they said contact Service people. i sent mail to GM and SIAM and got call from Local service center to bring the car once again for service. in the Websites and from other sources heard that they will completely replace the faulty engine but this news was denied by service center people as they dont have official message from GM. GM is not recalling or replying the customer's who trusted it and bought the vehicle in faith . this is a kind of betrayal shown by GM to its customers.

    might be you are lucky to get a crap car in good shape..... i can bet this car is having architectural issues and poor quality material, thats why GM had stopped diesel model and so far no news to start selling again which itself shows there is definetly problem becasue of poort build and quality.

    dear friends i almost taken more than 3 times of this SAIL Sedan LT ABS (D) variant i could not gathered any cabin noise,and the steering vibration here both variants are same suspension +same steering+same body i am not heard any noise. A very good suspension,very good steering control,good Road grip,and also a MASS Rear Room cabin for 5 persons without difficulties will site in this sedan. very good riding comfort My conclusion is don't look Zimkies Zimikies and shining paints-SAIL is a very good performance+ comfort+Safety Raider with your loveable family members without any Risks. A VERY GOOD PERFORMANCE CAR . I here suggest to take this Both Sedans for your SAFEST DRIVE and also Maintenance cost wise cheap and best fully sedans. thank you

    It was initially a difficult task when I decided to upgrade my 8 years old Alto to a entry level sedan. There is tough competition in this segment and obviously a deficult taks to pick the best one in line to our choice (since we neglect others whil choosing one). My prime chioses where Dzire, Amaze, Etios, Classic and Veritto. I went all the showrooms of these cars and done the test drive. Finally I ended up by giving my cheque to Chevvy to buy Sail 1.3 LS ABS. I have driven 2000 kms so far and feels happy for the buy.Based on my test drive experience I can list up some key points which made me to move towards Chevvy's Sail.Sail beats Dzire in the following aspects: a complete sedan, boot space, suspension, interior space, riding comfort, excellent braking system and awesome exterior design and looks.Sail beats Classic in the following aspects: riding comfort, suspension andsteering response while in city drive and uneven roads with full ac on.Veritto is really a good car, but I didn't choose it because of very outdated interior and once you entered inside you will feel like you are in Jeep not an luxuriouis car that you tended to spend your money for. While starting it jumps like jeep.Etios, I didn't fall to this car because, I was not much impressed by its interior and also the quality of the material in addition to a lot of negative critics I heared from the users.Exterior Excellent. You will fall in love at the first sight.Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Features : GoodSpace and Comfort: ExcellentEngine Performance, Fuel Economy and GearboxSince Chevvy uses Fiat 1.3 L Turbojet Engine, the Engine Performance is not commentable here. The performance is pretty good with decent mileage aroung 19-20km/l in Highways and 17-18 km/l in city drive.  The most lovable thing in this car over Amazr is you can't feel any vibrations even when you ignit the Engine and also the noise is well insulated in to the cabin. I feel suspension of the Sail is best among its rivals. It doesn't care the small path holes in the road and offers extermely better riding experience for both city and highways.  The power steering is pretty responsive and excellent for city drive.Ride Quality & Handling Extermely good.
