Quality of painting work is not good.

Rest everything works fine and there is no niggling issues so far.
Keep up the good work FIL and TASS.

They have done a good job on bulges.
Now the bonnet looks very neat like previous.
As they said,The bulges happened because of improper way of closing the bonnet.
They checked the locksand other parts in the bonnet .
Nothing found irregular to make bulges in the bonnet.
Just Pray Almighty for not intrude the same again.

karthik, How do you close the bonnet?

As per the manual, right way is to drop it from a height of 10cm or something. If bonnet doesn't close properly, DONOT press on the bonnet with hand. Just repeat the above dropping sequence again.

Hope you followed this way.

Whenever i open the bonnet i do the same as you said.
But the Bulge happened when i sent my car for servicing.
So those people in VST motors had done some thing to produce bulges.

Default Shell Diesel

Hi All,

This is the first time i have filled Shell Deisel in my car.
Previously i used to have only IOC Diesels.
Now the car is super smooth,Engine Noise reduced and pick up is somewhat increased.
I don't know,Whether my perception is right or not.
But i am feeling a huge difference in driving.
I'll update FE after some mile munch.

most properly they left some tool in the engine bay and closed the bonnet. happened once to me after i had given my swift for service. when i opened the bonnet 10 days later found a spanner, a oil filter removing tool and a screw driver in the cowl!

Eureka Forbes

I have this one at home and it works wonders on cars too. I use it every sunday to clean the carpet of the car and vacumming the mats and also for blowing the dust out of the car.

Default 100kms drive using Shell Diesel

I have driven the car for more than 100 kms with Shell Diesel for the first time.
Earlier the car feel very responsive.
But by yesterday itself,the car has been lugging in 1st and 2nd gear.
once the speed is increased it disappeared and crawl silently.
without giving acceleration the car can move forward in 10-20kms speed in any gear.i too experienced before.
But now the car is not moving easily and engine knocking is evident.
I don't know whether it's because of Shell Diesel.
But i am facing this issue for the first time only after changing to Shell Diesel.

Linea MJD Owners,Please let me know,if you too have the same problem on using Shell Diesel.

From yesterday evening the car behaves as earlier.
It crawls without giving acceleration.
Back to Normal.
But i don't know,what the hell had happenned last 2 days after fillling Shell Diesel.might be some impurites chocked the injectors.
As of now,The car is smooth and drivable.

Reg.Seat Height Adjustment.

I have changed my seat setting before 2 days and stll it is not coming down to normal.
it's in the same position as i adjusted.
So my seat Height adjustment has no issues.
Any how i'll observe for some more days and let you know.

Guys

what about the boot of Linea. I have Epak Linea and I found that Boot of Linea is a little hard to close. We have to push it a little hard unlike other cars. Are you also facing such problem or is it just a setting that I might need to get done during 1st Service.

yes you need to give little more thrust.
Every car Boot lid has the same tendency.
Any how check with TASS while 1st service.
