Thanks for the clarification Karthik !
Hate to see these Pics removed, after all the trouble you took to capture them- they are simply beautiful. Anyway, one can see me at the wheel as also in the rear view mirror !

! went on a 100km night drive to test the new 100/90 Lamps. They are much better than the original. Must put in a coupla fog-lamps some time next week.

I googled and found that EECO has front tyre wearing problem. Is that true?

^^ yes ; I have experienced this with the earlier avtaar,Versa,which I used for close to 7 years.

The problem,in my opinion, is due to the wide band given for toe adjustment during alignment.

+-2.5mm is a wide range and I believe a good alignment with +-0.5mm should improve matters

Thank you Vigsom. Should I get my vehicle aligned and get the tyres rotated very often (say every 2500 kms) to minimize this problem? Are there any other issues because of this wearing problem?

How often (i.e. after how many kms) did you have to change your tyres?

I'm surprised we don't have more Eecos on the forum considering that it is a value-for-money when compared to the Ertiga. Sure, we don't have the diesel option and the upmarket feel, but it makes a great second car for people who take the whole family out once a month for a picnic and find the boot space in a sedan too small.

I got the tyres changed at approx 48000kms and there was still decent life left in three tyres - two showed uneven wear.

If driving is predominantly in the city(especially in narrow lanes or slow moving traffic like in Chennai) , this is the best car to own. It can just squeeze into gaps like no other car because of its flat sides and the driver's view of the road can be matched only by the Force Motors Traveller.
