The car is doing good and nothing much to report. Dad is using the car even on highways now. He drove twice to Bangalore and would send me pics of 23-24 kmpl on MID .

Also the car feels totally different to drive now. Thanks to ECU update during official recall (Well, some guys at Renault told me that I was responsible for this recall ).

I wanted to swap my S-Cross with SX4 and had driven to Kasaragod. I was almost ready to drive back to Mysore in SX4. Dad changed all the plans and made sure that I would be driving in Kwid .

The car was very dirty and I gave her a quick wash.

Kasaragod to Mysore : "225 KM Kwidding"

I drove alone from Kasaragod to Mysore today. I did not go above 100 kmph and still took only 4 hour 15 mins to cover 225 KM . The handling was pretty decent on ghats but the power was lacking. I had to be in 2nd gear most of the times to overtake slow moving trucks. I got 17.7 kmpl.

The car has run around 6500 KM and I have noticed this issue since few days. There is vibration and rough sound at idling. But the sound disappears if I depress the clutch and it comes back when released. What could be the culprit? I am suspecting Input shaft bearing. I am not finding any time to visit service centre

I drove 250 KM yesterday. There was heavy rain during the entire drive. Single wiper blade did perform well. Handling on wet roads was very decent even with stock tyres. MID showed 19.2 kmpl but I got 20 kmpl on tankful method .

Regarding the noise & vibration at idling.. Dad says it's not because of input shaft bearing and it is related to clutch cable.

Conversation with Dad and see what happened to Kwid

Me : Why do you want so many cars and how much do you drive?

Dad : My drive is only 10 KM per day and Maruti 800 takes care of my needs.

Me : Exactly!! S-Cross, Baleno, SX4, Grand i10, Ambassador are not even used. I am driving the Kwid as per your order.

Dad : Kwid is perfect car for you.

Me : WTH!! Why??

Dad : It's a slow car and you can't mod / remap it

Me : Kwid is very good car and I guess you should be more comfy with Kwid than 800. Use it for couple of days.

Dad : Ya, I agree.. But...

Me : Bye dad!! I disappeared within 10 mins in S-Cross and ended up in Mysore after 4 hours haha.

So What's the status of Kwid??

Dad has locked it in godown and still using 800
