Hello guys, once again i have reached same incline and this time as well there were three adults including me. I have tried once more with 2nd gear and zero accelerator input to just make sure what i did last time was real. As usual my Grand started to climb it exactly like last time.
So now it was time to check it using 3rd gear. Hence taken U turn, again came back at the base of incline, shifted to 3rd and left the foot from accelerator, whats then!!
BINGO... the Grand pulled up this time as well without any slack again maintaining "constant" 1000 RPM.
Note : Though the RPM were low as compared to gear but there was no bogging type of effect and i was more surprise to see that even Gear Shift Indicator also did not indicated to downshift at 2nd.
Can anybody try it down on 3rd and let me know because i want to conclude that Grand can be picked up in 2nd and 3rd gear with zero accelerator input on incline.
Now don't want to check it on 4th
