Now that the JDM versus PKDM war seems to have ended here, let me share some of the issues in Wagon R faced by me, that may help the prospective buyers in taking a well-informed buying decision.
Alhumdulillaah, bought the VXL version 8 months ago, and have driven it for 3,200 KMs so far.
Issues faced by me (from most important to least important)
1. The car wobbles wildly in windy conditions. I have observed it moving here and there unexpectedly especially on highways, bridges built over rivers, and roads which are open from both sides. At that time, it seems a real nerve racking experience driving the car in such situations, especially over taking any vehicle on a single road with traffic from both sides.
2. The car's interior cabin is silent but the fuel pump, which makes a mild noise when its full.
3. The car's front seats are quite spacious, but the back seats are not too spacious for long journeys.
For me, point No. 2 and 3 ante are not that much of a concern but point No. 1. Last week, I took my family to a river and as soon as I drove the car on a bridge built over the river, it began swagging here and there wildly. So, if you travel frequently in breezy areas, then this car is certainly not meant for you.
P.S: I repeat, this post is meant for prospective buyers only. Cheers
