Yeah, they did say about the problems in the A/C. They said that when the blower is kept at max speed in temperatures like 18,19,20, the air will not be cool as the blower speed would dominate the cooling. But when it is kept at lower speeds, the A/C works like a dream, the A/C that we are used to.


Yeah, the dealers are irresponsible and they don't care about the existing customers, rather they brainwash new customers and make them believe that the ASS is just too good. But once we spend a year or so with them, they don't even look back at us. I hope everything gets sorted. I have given a feedback to them regarding the same. Hope they understand the seriousness of the issue.

Achyuth

The taillamp broke into several pieces and the bumper had a large bulge. Had to replace both the parts.


Hi,

Do you recollect how much did it cost you to replace the rear bumper? A honda city crashed into my Sunny this morning and there are major dents on the rear bumper and the boot. So much that the boot lock has also got damaged. Looks like I have to replace both of these. Thankfully none of the lights appear to be damaged.

Taking the car to the dealer tomorrow, hopefully it should not take too long for the repairs !

Hi Aroonanand,

I do hope they complete the work quite soon, and they have been working well since I gave a feedback to them.

In my car the headlights were the ones which were damaged, so I don't know what would be the exact rate. For me the ratio of damage was 2:1. The bumpers were dented and the headlights were broken. Approximately the cost would be somewhere about 7500-8000. And if they ask some more don't hesitate to bargain with them. I hope your caaar has a speedy recovery.

Thanks,
Achyuth

Experts please help me out. I want to change the tyres in my Sunny as the tyres are producing a lot of noise and I think the tyres aren't the most grippy as well. Contemplating on Michelin XM2 and Primacy LC. Other tyres are not too great. Which one would be better? The XM2 or the Primacy LC? In Michelin India's website they have said that both the tyres reduce fuel costs. But there is one thing I have to decide on. The LC is available only in R15 sizes and higher so will have to think about changing the steel rims to Alloy.
Advise on tyre quality would be highly appreciated.

Cheers ,
Achyuth

If you are about to upgrade the rims, go for LC, else stick with XM2. There isn't much difference among these.

PS: Feedback based on my long term experience with LC + short drive on XM2 & my friend's feedback who switched from LC to XM2.

Yeah thanks, looking to buy Primacy because the steel rims look awkward and it (the tyres) reduces road noise as well.


Short note on the dealership experience so far:


Guys have become much better after giving a feedback to them, they have returned my stolen possessions as well. And the old SA (whom I said is very professional in handling things) has come back. Huge relief for me, he supervises services very well and takes care of everything, so I think I don't need to go and stay in the service center for long intervals. But I am still not so sure about the workers there, they are still unchanged and I hope the SA takes care of things. Making sure that each time I go for servicing the car, I leave my possessions back in home.

BTW the A/C problem got rectified. The gas (probably CFC) was low in my car and they filled my car with the gas. After this, the A/C has been working well, the one that I am used to.

Update : Car is gonna cross 30k km so quite satisfied with the usage. And I was worrying about the A/C problem. It looked like there was some problem with the mechanics of the car. So quite happy with that. I am gonna go to Chennai so will update you guys about fuel costs, FE, etc.

Cheers,

Achyuth

Hi guys,

Sorry for being inactive for so long, the car has successfully completed 35000 km, the car is in top shape and efficiency is also excellent, the AC is wonderful now and there are no niggles to report. Will return with the pics in the next post, am very busy and my camera is lost. Will get my new DSLR only on June, till then only low quality pics.

Thanks,

Achyuth
