Well, the dead pedal does trouble you a little earlier but I did get used to it pretty soon. I have to say this, I don't feel any potholes when I drive over it. I have just driven the car for around 110 kms, but with this distance, I have loved the drive.
On sunday, when a friend was with me, we were just wondering if the car was actually on when we had stopped it at a signal. It was so silent. But yea, the clatter when outside is quite evident.
Somehow, all the reviews that I have read has spoken about the initial pick-up. What I felt was in the 3rd gear. It feels like its taking eternity to take off but it does. I guess, I need to get used to the gear ratios to work this.
Good to know that you settled so quickly.
Regarding, 3rd gear pick-up, you will feel only if you gear-up from 2 to 3, in low RPM. If your RPM > 1.5K, you will not feel any lag.
Just wait for sometime and let it cross 1500KM, you can see major change in engine noice and performance.
1. Boy wants car, boy sees 2 cars, boy likes 1 car, boy buys that same car is not a true story at all. This is Bollywood fantasy. This should more be like (as explained above) - Boy wants car, boy searches for car, boy has to decide amongst 8 new cars, boy has immense pressure from well-wishers for particular car, boy overshoots his budget by a mere 350% to get car, boy has immense pressure again on features of the car and so on and so forth..
2. On a serious note, I overshot my budget thanks to the point that I had the bank balance to support it for various reasons mentioned in the previous posts. Beware: Never ever do this, not good for your health, this is..
My booking, dealer, bank/loan experience in my next post (Sorry guys, have to get work done!!)
Boy wants car, boy searches for car, boy has to decide amongst 8 new cars, boy has immense pressure from well-wishers for particular car, boy overshoots his budget by a mere 350% to get car, boy has immense pressure again on features of the car and selects a variant but his gf is not happy, selects a higher variant, gf still not happy.
Goes even higher, at last satisfied
