I think that is a survey site and they have not launched it yet. Like the SRV Diesel site.

ok update time

Second service was done at 5k kms and my fusion feels much better to drive now. The service engineer said they topped all fluids and tightened all the body bolts/nuts. That surely must be it because I can definitely feel the smoothness now. Mileage remains the same, no changes. Overall, I'm very happy with the car.

Finally got my seat covers done from GSport. Could not get the door pads done as they wanted an extra day, so will definitely do that when I find the time. Here's a couple of pics. Let me know what you guys think.:






mods i think its time to move this thread to the 'long term..' section ? please do the needful and delete these lines. thanks.

The seat covers look good, but I'm not sure I care for the red stitching in the head-rests. I wonder why the rear seats even need headrests; the backrest looks pretty big. They can only hinder visibility.
Nice car you've got there. The interiors have an upmarket feel, and the dials are awesome! One of the most under-rated vehicles here.

Ur Ride looks lovely. Congratulations.

How does the engine feel as compared to the Swift and Getz diesel? Is it the lack of power and torque noticeable?

I simply love this vehicle. Just wish it had more torque..

the red stitching thingy is an add-on neck rest i have. you can notice the OE headrest in black behind these. thanks for the compliments. here's some better pics:

thanks puff. dont know about comparing it to getz and swift, but the vehicle feels terrific for everyday use. its quite zippy and feels terrific on the highways as well. and of course, i love the exclusivity i also use it to do quite a bit of long drives and bad roads, especially coorg. so the clearance helps a lot.

NIP, the interiors look really good, with the new seat covers. I would however get rid of those neckrests, though. They spoil the show.
