That’s truly unbelievable. Why do I suspect that you people are secretly running a used car dealership too? [;)]

Wish we could do that Vibhor. We have got the interest to do that and knowledge to some extent which can be improved to the level that is required to survive in the market.

But then, too bad that my mom wants me to be in a safer monthly paid job than being in a risky business!

So, I keep a low profile still doing what I like putting in less amount of money, making sure I do not incur any loss [sleep]

I envy Ilango in that sense, he does the job he likes the most![evil]

Update

had a trip driving this accent to kodaikanal.

Worst tyre condition , it skids for my driving in corners.


We went in a van+ accent combination.

the van reached me after some good 30 min. [evil]

Returned a FE of 18.5kmpl. good one eh?

after some 360 kms of driving , the car got filled by 20L , where as the van got filled by 30L .
Both the vehicles with ac!

I feel the van in more efficient!! 13 of them on 30L
and 4 of them on 20L.

Some quick updates ,

After the kodai trip , the other drive shaft gave away - bell replaced - on a nagapattinam trip . it gave away just a street before the home. People reached home safely.

After just in about some 25 days , the timing belt snapped .

Head - lather worked , new valve etc.
another timing belt..etc.

Was waiting for the timing belt and head - the THANAE cyclone hit and some thing fall on the windshield and is cracked - not yet replaced.

Doing its duty in my uncle's home , with giving them a constant fear of belt snapping again!!

Due to this our member holy satan did change his good/running belt since it was same belt from same manufacturer 0 this time another shop and rs900/- more than previous belt and have hmc printed in belt itself!
