Completed 62.5k km

Changing the rear shocks proved a lot of difference. Managed to escape from all speed humps without under belly scratching (5 on board with no space left out in boot)[clap] Only negative point is ride became more stiffer as the gap between bump stopper and shocks is reduced.

For the first time I have taken the car in hills. Made a 3 day trip to Ooty and back to home town on new year night. It was delight driving her uphills. It has more than sufficient torque, managed to drive in 3rd/4th gears except for the hair pin bends where I shifted to 2nd gear.

And finally I was like [:D] seeing this. 16.4 kmpl for the trip Tirupur - Ooty - Coimbatore - Tirupur

That is a cool average. How much does it return in normal city runs and highways ?

Car sold [cry] (with a heavy heart)

Reason for the decision: Wanted a car with better rear seat comfort (Linea is not bad when it comes to rear seat comfort, but little cramped when compared with competitors)

Booked Nissan Sunny XVD.
Vehicle is ready for delivery. I had a pre-approved loan from SBI but to my bad luck, after selling the Linea I was informed that all the car loans are put on hold and it requires approval from Zonal office (earlier Branch approval is sufficient)
So I have to wait for another week.
