i got delivery of my baby on 16/3/11 at 11.30 am. i reached the show room at 9.30 am with my family although i had been asked to come by 10 am.
EXPERIENCE AT THE SHOW ROOM
The experience at the show room was plain mediocre . i had gone there with great expectations ( the same as i had at the maruti show room when i bought my wagon r ) i had the print out of the pdi of tai
the car had dirt on the floor , seats & on the exterior - i had to have it cleaned again.
all the accessories that i had ordered were not fitted - reason outof stock.
the key was handed over to my dad at 11.30. 1.5 hours late.photos were taken by them & also by me.( sorry mates iam unable to up load them still )
the handing over ceremony was attended by all the sales staff. there was no token gift given along with the keys. ( the guy who was handed the keys just before me was given a basket with sweets & flowers) reason gift out of stock
my wife had brought sweets along & my kids gave to all.gave a small gift to the sales guy.
the fuel tank was 1/4 full.
the odo read 11kms only.
ACCESSORIES FITTED - Seat cover, reverse parking sensor, sun control films. that were not fitted - mud flap, rubber strip on the door sill.
THE CAR -
Drove the car from calicut to the Muthappan temple at parassinikadavu, kannur. had the keys handed to the priest for the lords blessings.then reached home at 7.30 pm.
had the tank filled to the brim at mahe ( the cost of diesel is rs 2/ lesser than at kannur.)
altogether drove 208 kms till today.
some problems that i have noticed- the horn is not loud enough, though better than maruti.
the knee keeps scraping the central console. ( iam only 163 cms tall , wonder what longfellows would do.
the rear view mirror in the inside obscures your vision causing a blind spot on the left side.
gurus i need some advice - should i keep at low speeds initialy if so for how long ? next will the extra mile diesel have any benifit during the breaking in period on the engine ?
