We had been on a trip to Saputara on November last weekend (total 550Kms) and last week to Goa via pune-kolhapur-Nipani (Total 1500Kms). I had a good time to spend with my LUV.
Mumbai / Goa Trip:
We started from Mumbai to Goa via Pune-Kolhapur - Nipani - Ajara - Sawantwadi - Goa Route. The roads are good through out with plenty of tolls.
Total Toll from Mumbai to Goa is Rs. 732/- (Including Rs.250/- for Entry in Goa)
Return Journey toll Rs. 482/-
Good Restaurants on the Route:
Breakfast at Shriwal in 'Shriram Vada Center'
Lunch at 'Garva' on Ajara - Amboli Road.
Person on Board: 4 with Luggage.
preferred not to pull down the 3rd row for luggage as that will slightly reduce the leg space in 2nd row. hence placed some bags on the 3rd row seat and balance in the boot.
- 20.83 Km/Ltr for 616Kms (Mumbai to Goa)
- 19.49 Km/Ltr for 171Kms in Goa
- About 20 Km/Ltrs from Goa to Mumbai
Even after driving for almost 1500 Kms in 3 days it was not tiring at all. My father drove LUV for the first time and he too enjoyed. he would have enjoyed more if the driving seat could be in more higher position. (My LUV been VDI drivers seat height adjustment not present.)
On return journey we had 6 people on board from Pune to Mumbai and at some time found lack of power in initial 1st/2nd gear until the turbo kicks in. Planning to fix the wind noise from quater glass in next servicing.
overall very happy to have LUV.
