For last 4 weeks I tried with 30psi on all wheels, no improvement in the FE figure. I still struggle to touch 10 kmpl. Maybe it is just my car or the full city driving with aircon on always.

The placard says 29/26 and I am getting 10+ kpl in the lousy Kanpur city traffic with 100% AC in my Brio AT. If you regularly carry two people in the rear then going to 30/28 or even 30/30 should be Ok.

Fixing wiper & washer assembly on a glass panel is very much possible. The unit won't put much load on the mounting area so it can be fitted by making 2-3 drilled holes and screwing it.

The one end of the gas strut is currently mounted in this way only.

@MaxTorque; Drilling into toughened glass - Impossible, Laminated Glass - very tricky and not advisable.

Hello,

Got a SMT (Urban Titanium) which is exactly 1 month and 6 days old, with MRF. Just wanted to update you guys on the FE I'm recording and the sort of ride quality on Chennai's roads.

With 800km on the odo and with AC continuously ON and Chennai's start-stop traffic, 11.5 seems to be the maximum (I use Honda's 29FR 26RE TP). Average would be about 10.5 I guess, though I never bother with the ECO light. On a highway trip, I saw 19.2km/l on the on-board display, so doing OK I guess.

I do have a question. When I get my low fuel light, how many liters of fuel would I approximately have still?

Tyre noise is evident but I love the ride quality and overall braking of the MRF's. The brilliant ride quality is what is keeping me from upsizing to bigger and fatter one's with alloy rims. Pleasantly surprised actually given that many forum members have reported a bad experience with MRF.

If the brio and amaze have the same 35 litre tank then low fuel light comes on with 6.2 liters. At least that's what it says in my amaze manual .

But what I said is, rear wiper and washer assembly mounting on glass pane is possible. I was not talking about a after market job.

Mine is tad over 3000 kms now and mileage has steadily climbed up to 14.3km/l in Pune city (not so B2b traffic) )with 100% AC. I maintain 30psi all round. Agreed, MRFs are noisy, but, road grip is OK.

I have done 5000km on VMT. Maintain aroun 28 psi (cold tyre) all around. I strive to get maximum mileage. Getting around 14.9 to 15.2 kms in Bangalore, <50% AC. Displayed mileage is about 1 kmpl higher than what I actually get. Worst I've got so far is 14kmpl in extremely bad traffic conditions.

Experience lot of lag in pick up while shifting to second gear at speed breakers. After second service, that seems to have improved drastically.

My Brio just completed 5.5K Kms and about to complete 1 year. I have finished third service. From now what maintenance schedule I should adhere to keep the warranty (extended) intact. Going by past experience, my travelling is around 500 KMs per month.

My Brio got some scratches in front bumper and a small dent in rear right door. As i don't want to claim insurance can any of you suggest a good place in Bangalore which specializes in Honda vehicle to get the painting and tinkering done?

Guys what is your experience with Brio's A/c?

I read on various reviews that the a/c cooling is not very efficient. Any views?

I noticed same, did you get it resolved? Let me know if you have found rootcause/fix.
