What is the exact problem? Take it back to Shanbagh. I got my air-con fixed from him the last time and it's working flawlessly.

That's quite a drastic drop. However, instead of range, measure your exact FE in the tankful-to-tankful method. Check exact kmpl.

If there is indeed a drop, it could be due to a variety of reasons; hopefully, something as simple as a bad air filter or low tyre pressure.

My poor Sunny had gone swimming in the Mumbai floods. Sharing the 1st estimate (still have to check & bargain) so one gets an idea of the kind of work to be done after a car is parked in a flood.

I can see a Bolt (petrol?) parked ahead of the Sunny. I believe it also belongs to someone known to you. If possible can you share the kind of damage that car suffered and the expenses for the same? It could give us some idea of a sedan vs. hatchback or diesel vs. petrol or, some other insights.

Hi @GTO sir,
Thankfully the Sunny didn't suffer from any major damage due to the flood. The bill seems okay to me and I can foresee there's some scope of negotiation in the estimate. Keep us updated on this front.

If I remember correctly, the Bolt belongs to the brother of @GTO. @GTO sir please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, belongs to my best friend. Bolt needed nothing more than a good cleanup. Because it was parked all the way inside, it suffered the least.

I'd like to say that the Sunny is the same after the floods, but it simply isn't. Has been to Shanbagh twice since.

The steering is a bit harder than before, some warning lights keep coming and going, from time to time some noises keep coming up....it's going to take a lot of visits to bring her back to how she was.

Flood water is like cancer for a car.

What DUMB ads - is this what Nissan has come down to? Who is heading their marketing department? A 10th-grader?

Remember "The city makes way for the Ciaz" ad?
My guess is that they are trying to imitate that (and doing a poor job of it, no doubt!)

I think they couldn't find any similar ad slogans for Verna, Vento and Ciaz. Funny.

Hi guys need help

Have lost the Nissan Sunny remote key... M dropped out of the pocket. While I do have the spare manual key, it does not enable central locking

Ritu Nissan quoting 15k for a replacement key

Any suggestions?

So far I face nil issues in my Sunny (ran 50k plus) and never faced the air con issue as well till now. Called up the service center for a normal service and the idiots says it can go beyond 10k!! So took it to my FNG instead and got it for half of that price since the warranty is over. What idiots!

Quite annoying behavior with most of the A.S.S
Until warranty period what ever the complaint is raised by customer they have a standard reply "that's normal saar, let's check again during next service saar" & the statement will get repeated during every other service. When the vehicle is out of warranty they try ripping the customer "Saar, 'this', 'that', 'those' needs immediate replacement, else the vehicle may leave you stranded"

Once the vehicle is out of warranty and we get a trusted source outside, there is no point in visiting A.S.S for regular service and body work. My car will be out of warranty in couple of months and the next service will be done at FNG only.

Anyways....have a very dependable A/C mechanic I know for a long time. He did all the work on my other cars and at a substantial price difference compared to service center. So any issues with A/C and I go straight to him.

Hey GTO. What was the cost of the cooling oil? Afraid I have the same issue.

Remember last year in March, I got the evaporator replaced under extended warranty? As if on cue, in March this year, the cooling dropped drastically. Well, the cooling coil has failed.

Now that the car is out of warranty, thank goodness I no longer have to deal with Nissan stealerships. Doesn't help that Nissan doesn't have any dealerships in South or Central Mumbai anymore. Sent the Sunny over to trustworthy Mr. Sunil Shanbagh. Should be back in the evening.

Besides the failed air-con, the car is performing flawlessly. Tight engine, no rattles, no creaks. The single part showing 4 years of wear is the steering whose cladding has started to wear off. The suspension doesn't feel worn out either. As it's the beater car and doesn't see the highway, I'm going to push this suspension a little more.
