Stylish though. But one quick question. How come no HSRP plates on the car in the era of Mandatory HSRPs?

Few additional observations of the car after a recent 700Kms run. The car now has done 5300 Kms.
1. The engine has become responsive and smooth. The pickup has improved. This is could be because I became adapted with the car.
2. The power steering fails to return to the centre sometimes when the car is turned lock to lock to the left. This seems to resolve itself when I drive for a few Kms and may return after a cold start. ( Will take it the service centre to get it checked).
3. With A/C on 50% cooling, the car returned a max avg of 17 Kms at the close of the journey it was 16 Kms
4. Noise from the left door, seems like a loose panel screw or something need to check.
5. Headlights need to be brighter as during night driving and in rain, you need to reduce speeds on dark highways.
6. Extremely comfortable seating. Reminds me of my TATA quadrajet seats or the old 2009 honda seats.

I drove the car on highways and ghats in my trip recently. About 2000km in all. Bangalore - Cochin - Bangalore - Mudigere - Mangalore - Karkala - Agumbe - Kundadri hill - Agumbe - Shimoga - Hiriyur - Bangalore.

All type of road conditions were tested. We were reasonably loaded, possible about 350kgs+ in total but almost 100% in terms of volume.

At Mudigere, the homestay was on a coffee estate and roads were non existant for about 1 km of continuous uphill drive. The car handled it well in terms of GC and I was in gear 1, climbing up the gradient at about 2k RPM. It was easy. Same while going downhill, gear 1 without accelerator kept the speeds at 10kmph and it was quite controlled.

Most of Charmadi hairpins were done in gear 3 or sometimes in gear 2. There wasn't much traffic and it was easy as well.

The Kundadri hill was done in gear 1, at most hairpins because the gradient was the steepest of our drive and there was no margin on the road, which was really narrow but tarred. Due to oncoming traffic, I had to come to a full stop mid turn a few times, but I dint have any trouble moving the car. I dint feel I was burning the clutch while doing this. However, while coming down, gear 1 was too slow and gear 2, put the car to 40kmph and obviously was too fast. I had to use the brakes a lot

On hiriyur-Blr highway it clearly showed that we cant stretch its legs as much as I would love to but that said, it wasn't like we were overtaken by many people. we were still faster than 99.99% of the cars out there. Or in other words, this much power is more than adequate for 99.99% of people. It can do highway duties without any issues.

The tyres though are narrow and squeal in corners and under hard braking. I was very wary of pushing the car in corners.

One other bright spot is that when I got into my Tjet after the drive, it felt like I am driving a monster.

Came across this YouTube video where the person activates the rear cam in the RXT variant after doing a hard reset. My question is that will doing this void the warranty. And should we do it.

I seem to agree with the vlog describing what we're seeing in this accident video. Instead of bashing Renault for making an inferior build quality car, we should be analytical about what we were seeing in the above video.

To sum up, all it means is there isn't enough material (yet!) to discredit it's build quality. There are no certain details about the accident itself. But, somehow I find him oddly just to eager to convince us.

Side note: I loved his diction, made me feel like I'm some hindi pandit.

Mod Note: Our Triber Report has been taken live at this link (Renault Triber : Official Review). Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!

Took my Triber to the hills!

The whole trip was a 535kms long one. Out of which, 300kms in highways, 100kms in state roads(roads with no dividers and frequent villages and speedbreakers), 60kms in the hills and the remaining in B2B traffic.

The overall mileage was a good 18.3kmpl according to the MID. The AC in all the rows was on throughout the trip even in the hills. The tank to tank mileage came close to 17.5kmpl and it was impressive! A 600+ kms range for a petrol car is good!

Coming to the engine, we were 4 in the car with a dog and our luggage. I was pretty impressed by the way it pulled us on the hills. On the highways, we are able to maintain speeds from 80 to 90kmph and the engine didn't feel stressed! The engine has become more responsive and peppy from what I had 3months back. Not a single issue cropped up with respect to the power train. While returning, we had her running for 8 hours (except for lunch and snacks) and the engine looked good(no stress, no overheating, no power loss).

Talking about the ride quality, I can call it the best in the price segment. At least 70kms of the highways were patched and the Triber sailed on it. Let it be anything, potholes, bad roads, and patches but the ride was amazing and not tiring at all.

Also, I spotted plenty of Tribers during this journey! Nice to see people accepting this!

Overall I feel that the car is becoming better as time goes!
