Default 10 Days Review

Today I completed first 10 days with the car and have driven it over 500 KM (exactly 551, but 48 was the Odometer when I got it).

Overall Impression: Its all buttery smooth just like cream, starting from ignition to idle engine sound, acceleration, gear shifting (mine is automatic, so from Parking to Reverse to Drive etc.) breaking.

I am writing again and again post tyre upgrade to Primacy LC 195/60R15 ride has become very comfortable, There is a significant difference between stock tyres and these ones.

Automatic Transmission: I am already enjoying automatic transmission and I thank myself and my wife (For reminding me for Auto at the very last moment of deal). In Indian condition we must need Automatic Transmission.

Now during any traffic jam what I really do is just enjoy chatting with co-passenger and enjoy my music, thanks to iPod support I have got my entire music collection (15GB+) with me and during these traffic jam I get all the time to surf it and listen to my favorite songs which I have not listened for years.

The 'D' V/S 'S' Mode: I was very confused between them and was worried a lot till the time I bought it and started using it, Its rather very easy and convenient. I am mostly running it in 'D' mode and in that too its hints me when I need to use the paddle shifts. The moment I use paddle shift it responds immediately.

I have really enjoyed the 'S' mode and then moving to semi-auto mode i.e. upshifting is manual while it downshifts automatically, really fun and as Honda says it is 'Sequential Mode', but we are better calling is 'Sports Mode', there is a all together different feeling.

First Ripping: By any standard that was not ripping, but I enjoyed a very short experience of same, I was in Noida city and I have found its roads very smooth. The car was in 'D' mode only and I started pressing accelerator, it started responding immediately. Within no time it was at 2.8 - 3K RPM and 100+KM speed. Wow what feeling. But my wife was with me and I had to return to my gentle way of driving.

Next in line is doing same using 'S' Mode on some long smooth stretch.

Some 'S' Mode experience: Was on canal road joining Faridabad to Noida (kalindi kunj) and its a single road. Road is in very bad shape, so for overtaking and completing this stretch one has to be very quick, speed is not the key but quickness is the key for overtaking. Slotted the beauty in 'S' mode and switched to semi auto, Never felt the need of clutch for overtaking, it was just so great for any quick and urgent need to torque.

Does 'D' Mode sucks: Hum..., kind of, the moment you start it, it immediately shifts to 2nd gear (you can feel it) around 1500-1700 RPM and then it remains in 3rd gear for quite some time, If you want it to shift gearing the way you want, you need to keep an eye on RPM meter and for higher gear you need to maintain good RPM. I feel around 1200-1300 RPM it shifts to lower gear.

My feeling is it remains for longer time in 2-3 gear and goes in 5th gear very rarely and might be this will give less average.

I guess the best average can be achieved by running in 'S' mode with switching to Semi-Auto.

I am also enjoying the driver height seat adjustment, its so easy to adjust to more height in bumper to bumper traffic and then on cruising adjust it to lower position.

Music System: Clearly the best music system in this segment, The options and settings are very easy and a very decent sound.

Bad thing is the display is single line and kind of dot matrix and characters are very large due to this only few characters can be seen. I feel like I have gone in only '8 character long' time.

Also I have got more 150+ albums and surfing them is one big job, Well for that I am already creating different play-lists.

Will keep updating more...

A very nice writeup and some good collections of pictures !!! I read all in 1 shot.

BTW, does this model have ACC? I assume the stock rim is of alloy. Am I correct?
