Manmachine,
Its better to get one gear timings instead of 0-100 timings as readings will vary because you might have not done a wrong shift or a late shift or early shift

Its better to slot car in 3rd and do a 40-80 and then slot in 4th and get 80-120 timings like this. No chance of error and you will get exact timings.

Btw, good timings, underpowered? what is that?

Unhappy

I forgot to mention the funny thing happened when i went to collect the RC Book.

Me : Why didn't you call me that RC paper has come ?

Sales guy : Sir ! i informed your office. You can call and ask them.

Me : Fine.

Sales guy : Here is the RC Book. Smiling.

Me: Smiling for sometime, and then i see the Name Of Car : FIAT SIENNA

Sales guy : at least for you FIAT SIENNA Sir, But last Week for INDIGO they put TVS SUZUKI Sir. Small Improvement.

Me : Shut up and do the needful, i am least bothered about others.Please do it as soon as possible.

Sales guy : One month time sir! ples!

Me : I need a fresh RC.

Sales guy : No sir only one for each vehicle. These RTO are fit for nothing sir. They do it all the time. We cant help it sir.

Me : Call your manager i need to talk to him.

Then i talked to the manager and blasted him and i told him already resale value is very good for FIAT,and now if the resale value goes down further i will claim from you. Thanks for everything. bye.

The issue with RC book is not a big thing and it can be corrected.

The RTO guys have put 2001 in book for my 2002 model car

I think resale value of the car depends on Manufacturing date rather than Registration date. Intelligent buyer check the manufacturing date by decoding the VIN (Vehicle Identification No.) of the car. In India short form of VIN is also the Chasis no.
However, in India, this practice is not yet being used extensively. Hence one can get away with Registration Date often.

Highway Mileage Milestone Report

Today i did a small mileage test for a short distance of around 35 kms and i came to know about the whopping mileage i got. Guess what ? i was really amazed when i saw the mileage on my trip computer. Check out the pictures below for the milestone achieved and the road on which i got that mileage. WHAT MORE DO U WANT IN THIS BIG CAR ??? and remember this is not instantanious consumption, its AVERAGE consumption.

P.S - Sorry for the quality of pictures, i took it on my mobile phone.

Yes manMachine,

I too got more than 28 kmpl (28.7) for some stretch on the way to my native 2 months before.
If you are a sedate driver,you will surely get a very god mileage.
Enjoy the Beauty

Cool

Some day i think we can even make 30 Kms/l . I am starting to enjoy my beauty more now (near to 6000 Kms) than before. After 5000 kms the motor has become so smooth. Awesome is the only word. I knew i can have HONDA FUN IN FIAT and i definitely knew i did not go wrong

Linea started to grow more than before on me now

Thumbs down Running Board Hit Pictures

I talked to Tata tafe. They said it will cost around Rs.21,000/- Insurance can be claimed for about Rs.16,000/-. But the MAIN PROBLEM is that the part is not available, i am waiting for more than 4 weeks. And still no calls from the dealer. FIAT WILL NEVER LEARN.
