If boot is not the concern then surely you should go for Honda Brio.Or If you can stretch your budget then you can go for Amaze automatic. I10 is also there but I won’t recommend that to you for two reasons firstly is the less FE and secondly it’s a 4 gear automatic.
Yes, considering your journey, today is a good day for filling up Nitrogen but trust me, in general it is a sheer waste of money. Tire related accident / breakdown is not just limited to Nitrogen v/s normal air but also depends upon other factors like side walls, tread depth / tire age, sudden puncture due to sharp objects, etc. Although I am from…[Read more]
I’ve not really been much of a “nitrogen” fan as anyway normal air is 78% nitrogen! But in extreme heat (and considering the 44 degree heat we’ve been having in Delhi) nitrogen tends to expand less than normal air and stays cooler – hence pressure would stay stable. If you want, go ahead and fill it. No harm.
Hi, the Yamuna Eway is a 165 kms stretch with a 100kmph limit. If you adhere to the limit, there should really not be a problem. Also note that nitrogen is more of hype than use in our cars and conditions. Drive Safe. Regards.
Nitrogen is of very little benefit in our normal usage conditions. Even if you’re doing a high speed run on the E-way.
I would recommend against going in for a change right before a journey. If you wanted to switch to nitrogen, you ideally should’ve done it a few days before the drive and driven around in town with it. The rule I prefer to follow…[Read more]
Nitrogen does tend to run cooler than normal air (as I have seen on my Rajasthan trip), but that’s just about it. If you have inflated to the *CORRECT* air pressure (*correct* is a little difficult considering most petrol pumps have malfunctioning gauges) and the tyres are in good condition, I don’t think you will have much trouble if you remain…[Read more]
Thnxxxx to all for their time and valuable replies……I decided not to opt nitrogen and now I am about to leave to lko…Hope it will be a nice journey:):)
Ideally upgrading the bulbs by a knowledgeable technician shouldn’t cause any problem in your car resulting in the negating of warranty, but if you go by the book then the company has the right to refuse a warranty claim if the system has been worked on outside the ASC network.
Some companies/ dealers are known to be flexible when it comes to…[Read more]
These systems are plug and play. What they usually do is take a direct connection from the battery for the circuit, and then plug one of the old bulb holders to a new wiring harness for input. The rest is all separate from the car’s wiring. No wires are cut, nothing is spliced. So technically, the car’s OEM wiring, holders etc are intact. But as…[Read more]
It is brio which has 5-speed auto transmission while others has 4-speed transmission & here Brio will be d best pick anyday… c mileage of automatic transmission is lower dan of manual ie. abt 2-3 kmpl lower dan of manual… here, i guss A-star wud giv u better mileage cz d claimed mileage of a-star automatic is 17 KMPL…. regards
Brio is the only hatchback that has a 5speed gearbox. It will be most fuel efficient as well. If you can wait for a few months, the Micra will be launched with the Sunny’s CVT, which is a high rated AT gearbox.
You should go for brio as I am also having brio automatic and getting 12kmpl in the city and approx 16 on the highway.You will love the car so go for it.I won’t suggest you fir A star as it looks cramped from inside.
14 in city and 17 in highways if you make sure..the eco lamp is glowing
should be 12-14 and 16-18 in city and highway respectively
I am having automatic honda brio and it is giving me 12 in city and 16 on the highway….I guess manual will give approx 1-2 kmpl more.
Good feedback @Munish Babbar, that is indeed good mileage from your Brio automatic. And true, the manual should give about a km more.
Nitrogen gas is cold which kips d temperature inside d tyre cool.. ie. it wont make d tyre hotter lyk air even if after running miles n miles at high speed thus reduce the chance of bursting… nitrogen does not evaporate easily lyk air increases tyre mileage. since der is no water content in nitrogen, it reduces d chance of rusting on stock…[Read more]
Normal air is 75% nitrogen. But it also contains moisture, which is not good for tires and rims. The difference upon using N2 is practically negligible, but it still is a best practice to do so. Expect no wonders, but it does help in maintaining consistent tire pressure in a variety of situations. Read that as just a little bit more(we don’t drive…[Read more]
Pros:The gas escapes slower so u can run some more in an event of puncture.nitrogen doesnot get heated up fast as air,so the tyre temperatures are kept lower than air on highways and can prevent tyre blowouts and give more tyre life,In theory it can give better mileage, Regarding refill You need to chk pressure level once a month only.Cons:…[Read more]
I got nitrogen today in all 4 tyres costin me 25 inr per tyre.Tomorrow going to chandigarh then will assume is there any change or no.
Keep us posted on your views.
use a thinner and soft cloth, apply the thinner and rub with cloth, then re-wax your car…. this works good if your car is already waxed
Thinner is a bit too harsh and you may risk removing your car’s own paint also. Rubbing compound is a little less harsh, but will also remove paint – so be careful. Try that and then immediately wax polish the car.
Wht sort of rubbing compound should I buy
Yes Mr.Munish, using floor lamination is effective & it will make ur cleaning easy. it wud cost u around Rs 1500 – Rs.3000 for installation & u can get it frm accessory shops….d demerit of lamination is dat its surface is slippery which wud make d floor mat slip… Also Mr.Munish, u can think of using 3D mats which wud give attractive looks n …[Read more]
the only problem with lamination is, incase the water seeps in through the seat holder brackets the original carpet gets damped. Due to the lamination it wont dry out easily.
So can I go for 3d mats instead of lamination.How much will it cost??????
I got lamination done for 3k on my fortuner, dont know about 3d mats.
3D mats r available frm around Rs.4K for superior quality ones…
I just spoke with d owner of a car accessory shop and he is saying he got good 4D mats for brio costing 1500 bucks which is 100% waterproof and dust won’t go to the OEM mats……I am going to his shop to look out that.But I still prefer 3D mats.
saw the 3d car mats online. The lamination is a better option according to me but with its drawbacks.
Couldnt find 4d mats.
Munish, they are going to replace your original carpet with a washable one, thats about it. you may find some of the interior trim falling loose afterwards if its not done properly and in some cases a noticeable increase in cabin noise. By the way the manufacturer will sell you a replacement for the original carpet at a reasonable cost after this…[Read more]
In Lamination the cleaning is very easy, as its plastic. Just wiping it off with a cloth cleans it. I use plastic matting over it. I hate fabric matting as it doesnt dry fast when washed.
Just get a set of good floor mats instead. I wouldn’t go with the lamination because of the problems listed above – slipperiness and water not evaporating if it seeps in.
Finally got the full size floor mats of high quality and I am fully satisfied with it.It has covered the OEM mat fully so now dust won’t go inside.It costs me 1000 bucks.
Carry jumper cables and ask any passing vehicle for help. On “How to jump start” – http://www.cartoq.com/jump-starting-a-car-how-to-video/
@Munish: What you have mentioned is one of the biggest negatives of buying an automatic car. You cannot push start it. Hence, a pair of jump cables and a compact battery pack in the boot are a great help.
Unfortunately with automatics, the only way to start it is to jump start the car (see video that Amit’s linked to above).
