Never tried fitting 5 people in the back seat. If you mean 5 in total, it feels totally fine when me, my sister, my parents and my grandmother use this car.

Although I have heard some people complain about the middle arm rest but I haven't personally faced that problem when we all go out.

Tried this but only one adult was healthy..remaing were slim (thin) with average height. Total 5 adults in back seat (All lady teachers with school where my wife is teaching). We have to keep driver's/co-passenger's seat little ahead, means backrest of front seats were not going beyond middle colomn. It was 1 ahead - 1 back kind of arrangement. barged in my car Same thing with 3 adults and 2 kids will be expected on back seat on this coming week end

Default Low End Vibration and Low pickup

At this time my car is with Dealer workshop for last 3 days for 10K KM service. During this time I sat with the mechanic and my doubts are confirmed.
Low end vibrations are due to weak Engine mounts and less pickup is due to change in front drive shaft assembly. Both are redesigned and altered by MUL and circular is out with Dealers.

Exact part numbers and changes, differences after change I can tell after I get my car on Monday evening.

Now moving to Mobil1 SuperSyn.

Default Vibration Fix

MUL fixed the noise and vibration after a lot of fighting and yelling.

They changed the mounting and the axle. No noise vibration was still there untill they re-timed the car. Now its ok..

Hi Anik,
Can you please give us more info on the Berklin radio transmitter? I mean in terms of price, where it is connected, etc?
I''m thinking of going for one for my Fiesta.

This is good news. cheers: Last time (3 month back) I made this complaint to the Sai service guys, they told me that its a common problem in all SX4s and Maruti was yet to find a solution. which service station did you get this problem fixed and did they charge you for it?

This low gear shudder was probably the only major complaint I have in an otherwise brilliant car.

I think this is problem with some of older batch cars only. I driven new SX4. Actually ?someone? taken delivery and wanted to get it reversed in small place after dealer person finished his lecture and handed over keys. Got to use my experience, there I felt that what my car was lacking and now the difference is nullified.
