My, My, thats news. So no Logans running as taxis in Delhi area? We have loads of them down south. Especially in Hyderabad and Bangalore.

Having used Logans as taxi's, I am impressed, good space, ride, reasonably quiet, big boot, durable if not plush.

Would make a great no nonsense family car while I use the Porsche!

Mobike,

Delhi taxis are majorly biased towards Tata (for dealer fitted CNG/company warranty) and Maruti (for obvious reasons) for want of CNG. Logan somehow hasnt addressed that market - else the 1.5 diesel is a fantastic vehicle even if spartan and sorta cheap plasticky.

Phamilyman, The Logan 1.4 would be a good Taxi if run on CNG. Apparently Mahindra's have not got the Logan approved for CNG use. The 1.5 Diesel prices itself out of the segment.In Delhi you have Indigo's ( CNG) doing service as taxis.

i have a logan and have given it today for first service. i took it on a highway trip to malshej ghat (150kms from Mumbai) got 18.5 with 60% a/c on. Expecting more are the miles get crunched. As far as the build is concerned, its not only the logan but most european makes are sturdy & can withstand long term diesel wear & tear.

I'm a Logan DLX 1.5 owner, I've done almost 2000 km in less than a month, first service is due, I'll post a detailed review shortly but just to add to this discussion; till now I've got a mileage of around 24.7 kmpl! I know it's hard to believe, but this is probably because, my driving conditions are good, not too much use of brakes or clutch. Pretty smooth driving, I've also gone on Delhi-Agra highway once. I use normal BP Diesel, no premium stuff.

Hi Logan owners..

I have always been wondering about one thing : almost 90% of the Logans I have seen (of different colours) have this white sticker on the bar just below the driver door. Why is it there and why not on all cars?!

I have been terribly curious about this and have not found an answer for this anywhere.

Hope someone can shed some light!

MODS : Could not find it anywhere on the forum so posted it here. Hope its the right place.

That white sticker is just to protect the paint finish from the factory while various people at the factory/dealer work on the car's interiors. Its sort of like how service centers place paper on the footmats of a car after its interiors have just been cleaned. Its meant to be removed but most owners leave it in place.

The paint in this area tends to fade off after some years of usage (in all cars) since the driver door is used a lot. So its not too surprising that people - especially ones with drivers - leave this sticker in place.

If so was the case, how is it that only Mahindra-Renault figured it out and introduced a measure to counter it. Why haven't other manufacturers figured it out?

The sticker itself is quite an eye-sore.
