I had 2 accidents involving my rear lights, and to my surprise, both are still intact, though the body took damages. think i am lucky.

Smile Updated FE!

Checked the FE in City driving which is another improvement in the department, almost kissing the 10 mark i.e 9.95/ltr purely City driving in 100%AC
Not the biggest achievement thou but saved from the 7-8 mark figure!

Havent yet calculated Highway figures!

Seems my driving and System G working at its best!

I'm still happy to see heads turn everywhere I go in my city as said previous..i'm still the one Stile 1.6 in my city!

Cheers~

I hope the brakes dont let me down someday! After 2nd service i can conclude the braking experience overall and if it has grown on me!

Hey guys,
Try pumping the brakes a couple of times when you have to apply. It works best in my Palio. I dont understand the logic behind it but is very effective. Also prevents unnecessary screeching of tyres on gravel etc. You may have to get used to it.

This is called as Double pumping. Used to be a very common exercise when we owned a Maruti Omni Van some years back.
Also, when the brakes get weaker, double pumping is the way to use them until the brake pads are replaced. A very safe and useful idea to keep in mind.

Its going great. The sudden stalling of engine happened again when I started the car parked in my building. This was a month back. Called up the previous dealer and he suggested I keep the car "UNDER OBSERVATION for 3 DAYS". no way. Called up another dealer who very promptly diagnosed the issed over the call and sent a breakdown vehicle.

RPM Sensor was replaced and the car starts in half a crank.

i am finding a new fault in my 1.6 stile. the acceleration raises on its own when the gear is in neutral. once i engage it to gear then the acceleration behaves normal. twice or thrice i noticed it. what should be the reason?

The PUG usually suggests a cleaning of the throttle body or the Idle control stepper motor.

How much has it run?
