and regarding FE, should i go to the dealer and get the car checked, coz my wife drives at an average speed of about 45-50 kmph, still i am getting such a low Economy out of it.

Hey congrats on your purchase!

Firstly, which city do you live in? Personally, 12-13 with AC in city limits is not bad at all. But that depends on the traffic conditions. Here in Mumbai, I would be ecstatic by that figure..And don't believe everything the dealers tell you. You would be surprised at their level of awareness/knowledge. No offence meant, but its the truth.

hi all!

its been one month since i bought my car, here is a small review of my experience which includes one long highway trip:

well to start of, the car is very good and satisfies all my and my wife's requirements.

In city:

in city the car has mainly been driven by my wife and she feels the car gives her effortless pleasure of driving. the car has been driven with 100% A.c. on so i guess that is the main reason why we are getting a bit lesser mielage (arnd 13kmpl) probably another reason could be that it hasn't been through its first due service.

driving comfort- again since car has been driven (95 percent) mainly by wife in city so i'm writing this review on her behalf. the car is great as far as manouverability is concerned. one thing i personally liked about the engine is its low end torque, it really helps the car to puch even in the higher gear, so it makes the job of changing gears in traffic easier. The AC is really good and cools the cabin pretty fast, even at the second fan speed, the rear passengers don't feel the heat.

Highway:

The car really performed well on the highways, though the car was new i made her run at 120 kmpl with 3 people and boot filled upto capacity, but still it was moving smooothly. the mielage i got was 14.5 kmpl, but considering 3 people in the car and boot full of luggage, i think the figures are qute respectable, but i keep this question for you guys to answer.

cons:

overall i found the car to be very good but it lacks one thing that is the dead paddle alongside accelerator. on my highway stretch i found it uncomfortable to keep my right foot on the paddle. my 800 has an even better foot position.

verdict:

the car is really awesome, something i really liked. apart from the foot position, i think the car is a complete package and a great VFM.

my ratting-9.5/10

hi all!

i just wanted to ask, that how can i know the month of manufacturing of my car?

the year of manufacturing is 2009, of which i was really apprehensive about as it is mentioned in the insurance papers, but nothing has been mentioned about the month of manufacturing.

thank you!

Can anyone tell me how can there be a dead pedal alongside Accelerator?

Or is he mistaken to Dead Pedal alongside Clutch Pedal?

well sudeep the dead pedal is actually a pedal that is "dead" which does not control any operation that it does not perform acceleration or braking,etc in other words you can say that the dead pedal is simply a raised area on the floor (or side of the floor) sometimes covered with a rubber slip mat where you can rest your feet, it usually is helpfull in long drives when you are going at a constant speed and you rest you right feet on dead paddle at the same time keeping your car moving at the desired speed.

Also I have seen it in pics of Santro. As Far As I Know, The Dead Pedal is provided for LEFT Foot Only.smiley1.gif

But I am hearing this for First Time that Even Right Foot can have a Dead Pedal.smiley3.gif
