Congratulations on your new acquisition.

Are you sure about the manual?

My manual reads "for the first 1500 - 1800 KM, do not exceed 110 Kmph in 5th gear etc...". This comes to around 2500 rpm.

Just giving you a hint so that you can stretch your speed limits a bit more :)

JK,i think you cant add lumbar support.It comes standard on the high end variants,else you have to change the seats.

Rather scary watching this from behind. :D

Weight and height needs time to get used to, is my humble thought. Enjoy the drive and congratulations on your purchase again.

I dont zig zag like I did with the Xing, actually cant! What I meant was it is manuverable that I thought.

#$% Need to check this! Max I did was 80kmph till now in 5th.:Frustrati
Touched 100kmph for 1-2sec once, thats all.

I've been waiting to know this - Do you feel a lack of power in the 1st/2nd gear at all? I drove a Scorpio 2.6 the other day, and it lunged forward like a hungry beast on ALL gears whenever I pushed the accelerator even a slight bit.

@JK

Photos are stunning.

Where is this road in your 3rd photo ? narrow road and lush green trees with the safari makes the photo real good.

Will revert after I cover 1800. Though will be easy with engine till then.

Or did you mean, is first and second gear short? First is. Yet to check the second one to its full potential.

The location is perfect to reclaim your life... reminds me of the trip to Wayanad I did a couple of yrs back... the twisties between mudumalai and Sultan Bhattery thru the tea estates..

harjeev 24th March 2008 18:38

dadu 24th March 2008 19:45

And, if I am not mistaken, you have the new 2.2. Sssoooo, it does mean that the pick up is not good, at least nowhere good ('killing' is the word) as the new Scorpio.

Take the road map of Kerala. Put you finger on any one of the state highways or secondary roads. This could be ANYWHERE there.:D

jkdas 24th March 2008 23:00

Thanks Guys:)

Nice one Dadu.

Mission_Safari; as Steer said, its just another road to one's house.

benbsb29 25th March 2008 11:14

JK, nice pics. The Safari really looks at home there.

I see you got a fancy number. Paid extra for that?
