Key chain is nice mate. But I usually avoid key chain as those keep on banging to your steering column and make annoying noice. Just my personal opinion.

Neat key chain, wonderful job but isn't that too long to hold it in your pocket ? is it comfortable?

Thanks visran.

The metal part is shorter than the key fob and it is very thin compared to it,
so its not a problem.

Though i am late but COngratulations for your Optimus. It is one hell of a car.

And i am very impressed to see the FE that you are getting, can't ask more than that from a vehicle of that size.

Just out of curiousity - Did you reset your FE after taking the delivery?

Maximum FE that i have received from my XUV(DRACO) is 14.1.

Hi, The FE is good in my case.
and I normally reset the FE whenever there is a change in the route pattern. like when I am running only in city and I have to go for a trip I reset it at the beginning of the trip.
like in the recent pune-dadar-borivali-dadar-borivali-Pune trip via expressway I got an average FE of around 16+ (as on the MID). this trip included AC, Non AC, bumper to bumper traffic of Mumbai, Expressway, light traffic, ghats etc.

Any link for your ownership thread?

Hi All,

Sometimes I feel that the first gear while downshifting is a bit hard. Is this normal for SUVs especially XUV or do I need to get it checked?

I guess all the mechanical's has to settle down first, give it some time post first service you will be able to notice the difference.

+100, yes kunshik, your car is in run-in period and it takes bit of time to settle everything, yes after 1st service you will feel everything smooth
