Re: Good 'ol Temperature Gauge : Yes or No?

Is there any reliable after market gauge which can be installed on my Swift? OBD based maybe?

Voted for Yes !

This is how it is in the 5th gen City. I do miss the old school analogue style, but I guess this is how new cars are. This one gets a warning for both low (cold) as well as high(hot). The descriptions on the right are for troubleshooting.

So the tragedy did strike my car and I would blame the missing temperature gauge. I don't know how much the manufacturers save by deleting this gauge but my sincere request to them - please prioritize this gauge and find something insignificant to delete!

A ruptured radiator pipe led to coolant leakage which eventually led to a blown gasket. My uncle had borrowed the car for the past few months and his driver was driving it. If the high temperature gauge popped up or not, no one knows. But I give the benefit of doubt to the driver who might have missed it and finally causing the engine to overheat.
