Yes. It's really pathetic!

Only saving grace is that there is ac vents underneath the front seats. So we can manage by adjusting the air flow direction through that which helps in better rear cooling.

Yes, the rear ac is quite week but does the job adequately. The cup holder near the handbrake lever chills whatever is placed inside. Not sure if this was an intended feature or just as a result of the ac ducts running close by.

Thank you. Not a big fan of SUVs in general, and definitely not a fan of small SUVs.

Few questions: It comes with heat rejecting green glass on windows and rear windscreen. Did you go for sun control films?
Second Q: 5th and 4th gear have same gear ratio. How do you use those? Do you go 4-5-6 or you jump 4-6? 6th is the negative ratio gear and cruising gear. So 4 and 5 are a bit confusing. Can you give your experience?
I didn't go for sun control films. The heat insulating glass is adequate for Bangalore weather. But it does get pretty cooked if you let the car stand in bright sunlight for a while. Which I don't think even sun control films will help.
Second Q: Are you sure that they are the same ratio? I have not really noticed it. I normally shift 4-5-6 unless I am already in a higher rpm, when overtaking for example. but 5 does have a good pull even for overtaking.

Not sure if it's an intended feature. But Won't VW have the sense to insulate the ducts going to the rear vents? In any case I will be checking them up in a month during my 7.5k km check up.

Thanks and will see how cool it is and decide on sun control. With regard to gear ratios different websites give different ratios and I have decided to wait and see the manual and then discuss.
How did you manage change of gear position for R gear?

For R you press down on the lever and shift extreme left and up.



Also I was the victim of deliberate vandalism.
My car is parked outside on the road during the night, and I wake up to see this.
What is this because of? A stone? A key being pressed into the metal? Either way the lunatic who did this, may he rot in hell.

Pressing key cannot make such dent. May be a quick punch with a key or something similar. Or may be a flying stone hit. Is there vehicles at good speed on the road?

From the look of it, seems more like a stone. It is really difficult to make such a dent with key unless he used a hammer over it. Try one of those suction devices or else the whole fender needs to be painted again. Hope you rectify it soon.

No it's a single lane residential road where the cars are parked on one side.
Looks to be a stone only. There were some kids playing yesterday late evening.

I have to go for the 7.5k checkup in a month's time. I'll get it fixed then.

I have the same type of dent but its in the roof right in the middle, I really could not understand how it happened, But probably a stone fallen from above? I decided to overlook it (The first time i ever decided such a thing) Since it cannot be seen while even standing next to the car, I spotted it from a building, Went down, Crawled up the car and saw it, Decided it to keep it that way.

It should be an easy fix though.

I remembered only after you mentioned it. It's completely gone now. The clutch is smooth, but the gear shift, not so much coming from an i20. But it's better after some running in.

I have a small question. When I press the horn pad each time a distinct metal switch clicking sound comes and it is irritating. Did you have this issue?

Must be the horn relay clicking?

The sound comes from right below the pad. I had Camry with similar pad but, it was like feather touch and no such click-click.

On observing carefully, it is coming from the relay. The more I concentrate on it the more it is irritating. May be one way to discourage frequent honking! My 'to-get-used-to' list is getting long.
