Back from sailing, and feel glad to be able to be back on Manza's driver seat. My brother had told me that LH side tail lamp cluster has a crack (hit by someone at traffic signal
). Though minor, I hated it and got the lamp cluster changed. 17000 kms on ODO. still 3000 more to go for 4th free servicing. But since I would be goinf for a long drive of about 5000 kms, I thought it would be wise to go for an early servicing. I called up Aadya motors, and they obliged promptly.
The car has been doing well since 3rd free service. Unlike earlier this time, my defect list is quite small.
- Clutch travel not smooth.
- AC blower making peculiar noise.
I went at morning and job was started immediately. Decided to stay there, overlooking the jobs being done. When the car was lifted up they found a dent in engine sump and plastic guard broken. I was surprised, as I dont remember bumping into somewhere! SA said I can get away without replacement. But I went for a replacement. And because of this, the job cant be completed before 6 pm. The gasket sealant needs to dry up before oil is poured in. So I head back home and come back afternoon. Sealant seems to have dried up. Engine oil poured in. Alignment done. AC blower filter was removed, and found 70% choked. Filter renewed and sound gone.
Clutch was adjusted, but I feel the problem has not gone completely. Washing and cleaning postponed to a later date as it was too late. Total expenses Rs 3043.
Engine feels smoother after oil change.
Overall, I find myself amongst the satisfied Manza owners. Had never let me down.
