Default My new Power Beast(Verna CRDI SX ABS)

Got my PASSION RED VERNA CRDI SX ABS few days back(17th april).Sorry for the delay in posting.

Changes Done
Alloy wheels-->14inch
Tyres--Michelin XM+--195/60/14

Its run almost 800kms.200kms city driving and 600 kms of highway driving.Till now no issues.

Highway ride was from Cochin to Bangalore.
Cochin--chavakkad--Perumbilaavu-Nilambur--Gudallur--Gundalpett--Mysore--Bangalore.

We started off at 10 am from cochin and reached bangalore by 10 pm.There were 5 people in the car with full lugauge.Road is pretty good.Only 10km stretch was bad(after the Gudallur forest till gundalpett).But the vehicle managed it pretty well.
Got FE of 15kmpl over all with 100%AC.

I don't know if anyone has pointed out this in the earlier ownership review.When you adjust the steering wheel to downward position,i am not able to see the trip meter or the total km reading(not a serious problem though).with the default position its perfectly fine.

This is my first ownership review.I know its short but everything i have to say is the same as other owners have already said.So not boring you guys with the same stuff.

If its stable at 110 kmph , then its good.. I dont recommend to go beyond that either. Safety First

I've seen this in some other cars too. Atleast in my Accent. Might be something that the manufacturers overlook. But nothing serious I believe.

Hey binoyb22,

Congrats on your car buddy. Thank god Hyundai dealers in cochin are good compared to bangalore and you had a smooth deal compared to mine. Please do keep me updated on the handling, famous verna effect and the FE. Please dont forget to upload pics of your new baby.

Sajan
