It appears we are less passionate of our cars unlike the Vento Owners. Vento guys have so many threads . As a owner, I am guilty too of this neglect but may be I will start a thread after I have crossed atleast 5K clicks

Thanks for your inputs. With respect to the clutch, the new Verna clutch is better than older Verna/Accent CRDi cars. It is matter of getting used to especially if you are new to diesels.

I'll second that - both during the showroom visit and consequently the TD i never got the feeling of being claustrophobic , i liked the fact that it appeared to make the car more cost.

Plus if that translates into less sun coming in , im all for it!

If I am not mistaken you had mentioned in the other thread that you would be taking a good long TD , what was your experience ?

Friend's got a Petrol Fluidic which came with stock Bridgestones, B250 to be precise.

He too finds the suspension setup a little too soft and he does frequent highway runs etc.

He's clocked 5k so far. Can a change of tires help here??

If yes, which ones, or is there an alternative fix to the suspension? (doubt though)

So when you mean to say that the suspension is soft, you mean to say you want to improve handling by means of stiffer suspension?

Guys, please get it right, the coil spring adjusters is a solution for "sagging suspension" & reduce the scraping of under body on speed breakers. I highly doubt this will improve the handling of a car ! So if the motive is purely improving handling, suspension upgrade is the way to go.

Congratulations incinerator on getting home your much awaited Fluidic. Some pictures . 4 months of waiting would have been quite demanding, but looking back at your car, you would feel that it was worth the wait, won't you? Please start your ownership thread asap & share the link here.

Wishing you countless happy (s)miles & a wonderful ownership experience with your new Fluidic.

Congrats incinerator welcome to the Fluidic tribe. I was so tempted to buy the Auto but it wasn't in my budget. I really enjoyed the auto when I TD the car.
Look forward for your thread.

Drive safe

Cheers

Thanks guys. Pics and detailed report soon. Plan to do an old vs new comparison between the old girl Accent and the kid Verna. Still waiting for the number plates and the floor mats. Sleek Silver is a common colour, but stunning nonetheless.

The Verna looks good in almost all of the colours , look forward to reading your review and viewing the images.

clarification , which floor mats are you waiting for? the Hyundai ones or have you ordered something else?
