An update after a long long time.
Crossed 70K in 4 Years and 3 months. Still on stock bridgestone tyres with spare wheel being unused.
Apart from the regular maintenance have done the following recently
-Got a new battery-Exide 6 months back (63K KM).
-Last November, water pump stopped working. So pump was replaced along with timing belt. Pump was replaced in warranty whereas I had to bear the timing belt cost.
-Front brake pads were replaced at 60K.
-Rear brake pads were replaced at 45K when they still had some life left as we were driving to Ladakh last year.
I am averaging 13.13 KMPL since the time I bought Aria.
Recently did a road trip to Garhwal region of Uttarakhand covering Rishikesh-Syalsaur-Rampur-Kedarnath-Ukhimath-Joshimath-Badrinath-Auli-Khirsu-Lansdowne over 2 weeks.
At GMVN Syalsaur
Past year was especially memorable with wildlife spotting from Aria. We have spotted Tiger cubs, Leopard, Bear, Wild Elephants, Indian Gaur and many more while being in Aria
Leopard sighting at Nagzira.
We were very lucky to follow the leopard for close to an hour. With no other car/tourist we had a fantastic sighting.

Overall Aria is taking us places
