Crappy issues !!

About 1-2 months ago the ABN AMRO website was updated, now it does not work on Firefox and on every page/click there is an IE error. Now being a software testing engineer myself i cant tell you how irritated i am when i see such shitty websites. You cant do this for any website that deals with americans.

MY safaris irritating issue with the accelerator pedal is now resolved. Apparently the break sensor had to be adjusted slightly to resolve the problem. The cars now have complicated electronic management systems and everything is apparently a connected. These sensors and management software is made by Lucas an international giant. Still when you connect the latop to your safari it just shows---engine pedal stuck (as if this was not known) and nothing else. There was no hint as to what was the root cause of the problem. Another example of crappy software and engineering.

Safaris bottle which holds windshield wiper water has now started leaking, the bottle has punctured big time on its own, but the workshop guy was hard to convince to replace that under warranty(they also did not have it in the store also). Anyways now the pic has been taken and sent to head office. Another of my battle has started.

Which reminds of another issue with Airtel Delhi, when i asked them to combine my 3 numbers, they also joined in it 4 more numbers from another person in my company. Tried explaining many a times to customer care and emailed several times to all the email id's. Classic example of pathetic treatment that consumers now a days have to go through. Consumer courts are a big pain in INdia and thereore the consumers will be continued to be treated pathetically..

I don't know man, maybe you should shun the nationalism and shift to multinationals. You've had problems with Pulsar and now with Safari.

I've owned Karizma and Accent so far without any problems. Let me say that again "0" problems so far.
The only time I go to service station is for a service or if bang it in a truck :)

@sachendra it got nothing to do with nationalism. Its just that i go for value for money, and that sometimes involves a higher head ache, which i do factor in when considering the value for money. Pulsar had been quite fine after initial issues, and i dont think u drove karizma around 30k km which my pulsar has done. I think safari wud become much more dependable after doing more 7-8k...so all part of the game :)

Karizma has done about 25K, Accent about 40K. Yes, they're a bit costlier than TATA/Bajaj vehicles but let me repeat one more time "0" problems till date. No headache, no heartache... total and complete piece of mind :)
