Is it perceivable to the eye? I think mine is not working then.
Also, do the wipers judder when there is not enough water for a clean swipe but not completely dry either?
I think I need to list down all the things to be checked during first service, lest I forget.
Speed Of your wiper wont change in intermittent mode.
Only the interval between the wipes changes. At lowest around 3 seconds difference between wipes. At highest its 22 seconds difference between wipes.
My First Service checklist includes.
1.Vanity Mirrors Light Auto off
2.Cooled Glove Box
3.Ambient Temperature sensors.
4.Driver side Windows, Makes a screeching sound after it fixes to the top, and just before coming down.
Mileage at present 16.5kmpl.
Quantity filled/Distance traveled Method.(Not accurate)
Total 800 kms
400 Highway @ Average speed ~60Kmph
400 City @ Average speed ~15-20Kmph
Per Km cost Rs.3.93
In my bike Per Km cost Rs.2.5
After a long time sat in i10 and drove last night.
All this while I thought that was the smoothest car. What a difference!!!
Felt car is much smaller.(Felt like using iPhone after using Samsung Large screen phones.(Not meant to offend anyone at all))
And Cabin noise, which I had not heard all this while, was there suddenly. Thanks to Ecosport which made me forget that car makes noise while driving.
Small potholes and humps were larger suddenly! Steering feedback is not there direct feedback to spinal cord.
For those who still have their old small cars, take a drive.
You will know you made the right decision.
