Re: 5 Years Ownership Update

With my Dadís Indica which has done 1,44,000 Kms too

Great thread @arun_josie. But more than your compass, I'm impressed with your Dad and his Indica. That car must be a real sentiment to him.

Yes, he is attached to this car and doesn't want to replace it as well.

An impromptu lunch drive to Anchetty and ODO @ 1,50,000 Kms

An impromptu lunch drive to Anchetty and ODO @ 1,50,000 Kms:

Its long time since I had been on any leisure drives. So, when bhpian speedsatya asked me for a drive to Anchetty, I didn't think twice. Anchetty is famous amongst cycling group as it is one of the toughest route but a scenic one. speedsatya was on his bike and another friend was my co-passenger.
We started around 12:15 PM and the weather was cloudy.

The route was via Bannerghatta Road, Thattekere, Maralwadi, Dodduru, Therubeedi, Hunasanahalli, Anchetty. And the return route via Denkanikottai, Thalli, Ankekal.

When we were around Thattekere it was very cloudy but by the time we reached Maralwadi it started drizzling followed by some heavy rains. The forest route was fun to drive. The roads are all newly tarred. so we didn't come across any bad stretches.

Just before Anchetty we stopped for some pics and reached Anchetty later by 3:00 PM. Since we didn't have the lunch yet, after checking with few locals we stopped at Hotel Sri Murugan for lunch. They had only Non-Veg but made a plate of Veg fried rice for my friend.

The Non-Veg food was good. We had chicken biryani and parotta-chicken.

Here are the pics,

ODO @ 1,50,000 Km:

During my recent drive to Chennai, the ODO crossed the 1,50,000 Km milestone. Its now closer to 10K Kms since the last service and all good so far. I am thinking of getting the service done every 10K Kms from now on. The wheel alignment/balancing is pending too.

Rear Wiper replaced:

The rear wiper was never replaced till date and recently it started putting lines. So, I decided to get this replaced. As mentioned by few already, the wipers are very expensive, the rear wiper costs around 4K.

Thanks to the below post by ramnaresh_2000, I got this ordered via amazon for 400/-.

As mentioned in the above post, it is a quick job to replace this wiper. I followed the same steps and replaced it. For now, its working fine.

Always a delight to read your ownership thread.

Now that you have done 1.5 lakh km, you would have started to think about the compass replacement(going by the Linea 2 lakh km replacement trend). Have you thought about it?

To be frank, I have not thought about any replacement yet. And I doubt that I will replace Scarlett as I really don't see a proper upgrade at a sensible price.

It has been a while since I have been here on the forum. Super congrats on your milestone arun_josie, your adventures are an inspiration. And yeah and happy to share that past my initial niggles, the Jeep has been a delight to own and the new options on the block just don't seem to matchup.
