Default Mitsubishi Cedia - A 6000KM report

You guys must be thinking, not another Cedia - long term report! There are atleast five great reports in here on the ownership of the cedia and each one is an interesting read however heres my two cents.

After two long trips to Cochin, two shorter trips to Tirupati, Mysore and the daily insane run through Bengalooru's warzones (also known as public roads) I must say I have become addicted to driving. Everything about this car has been totally awesome so far. Its been about 5 months now (and touch wood) I have not had a single problem. Mileage varies from 10-11 in the city to about 12-14 on the highways on regular petrol. I have not changed anything so far but with the 10K - 6Month service approaching I am consider fitting an ipod adapter to the stock blau unit and also a steering mounted remote - rc10H.

Negatives
Just about the only negative thing in my opinion is that the squab portion of the rear seats could have been a bit broader.This leads to a pretty unergonomic seating position on long drives. This is especially so with taller people.

Postives
Great handling and steering feel.
Smooth refined engine.
Good mileage (in its segment)
Great front seats and driving position.

There thats one of the shortest long term reports ever. Will close it by uploading some pics of my favorite car of the moment.

I love this car. Thanks in no small measure to T-bhp owners.

Yup. T-bhp was instrumental in my buying this car as well. It was not marketed well enough for the general public to know how good it is...I took the test drive after reading roc's report and I was floored (even before I completely floored the accelerator)

Default Cedia

My car has completed 15,700 kms (over 2 yrs old) and I do not have any complaints to report so far. Warranty expired too.
Didn't extend as it would not help anyways with HM's poor marketing attitude.

However, I'm simply in love with this car, as always..

How I wished HM could offer a better after sales and service back-up to make this super vehicle stand out in the crowd.

Default Great Car

Wow, its really a great car and it grows on anyone who will start using. Reliability is excellent and the fuel effeciency for 2.0 is also great.
But do I dare to know how you get 14 in Highway?! Our Baleno gives 16 with AC at 110 ( indicated ) on NE-1 ( National Expressway -1 , between Vadodara and Ahmedabad ).

Surprising and enjoy this addictive car.

Nice concise report parichay. I can tell you're very much in love with your Cedia
There's something about Mitsubishis...!

All the best with your ride for the future... have fun and drive safe!

With this car I somehow cannot seem to restrain myself. So at the first sight of an empty stretch I tend to drive with a heavier than normal foot on the pedal which I guess is the reason for the above mentioned figure which incidentally is pretty good for its segment.

Thanks Rahulkool. I felt that there were way too many reports on the cedia both short term and long term hence I made mine concise however once I am done with my 10000-6k service in may I will update this post with more details.

The Cedia fan club is growing inspite of Hindustan Morons. I am getting my Cedia sports pretty soon and will post the details.
@parichay - did you get the third year warranty? Is is useful?

The extended warranty only covers mechanicals. I doubt anything will happen to the drivetrain in 3 years time.
