just returned from a test drive.
OHC vtech - mfg date Jan 2003, registration date May-2003
ODO reading - 67825 kms
Battery with warranty
waxoyl undercoat with warranty
nap gold color on rc book as well as car.
exterior and interior - excellent condition
engine compartment - no leaks, no steering noise, no ac compressor noise.
Drive- something is missing. the punch, the throttle response, the eagerness to fly, all was missing.
1st and 2nd gear - the rpm needle climbed quickly upto 4000 rpm
3rd and 4th gear - pick up sluggish, rpm needle slowly climbed to 3000
the speeds was 80 on 2500 rpm and 100 on around 2900 rpm.
is this normal? is the car missing something? its a excellent condition car, still the throttle response was not quick.
one thing i must say after driving 4-5 ohcs. the handling is worst. at speeds on 100 you feel like flying. my alto is way ahead in terms of confidence and handling even at speeds of 140. OHC doesnt grip the road firmly.
Price quoted - 3.2 lacs non negotiable.
