    Interesting, isn't it? We normally ignore this overhead costs.
    So roughly you are visiting ~20 times a year :shocked, hope this time you have to visit less.

    Nice, missed to see your car in factory visit.

    Hey Karan, nice meeting you too.

    About 9-10 TASC visits a year, Ravi.

    After replacement of Steering Rack, the steering feedback is much much more pronounced. Every small unevenness of the road is felt accurately and more pronouncedly. Loving it. :)

    So what your eco drive says, accelerating more?

    There are 4 items that ecoDrive shows:

    1. Acceleration
    2. Deceleration
    3. Gear Changes
    4. Speed - Only generic recommended speed range is shown.

    The limitation is, the above items are shown only for a single journey which could be one of the last 3 days (when ecoDrive was ON thro' Car ecoDrive settings).

    Following is the snapshot - I don't know why it gave only 1.5 star in acceleration though acceleration was fine in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Gears except 5th gear in which acceleration was aggressive.

    Isn't required RPM's shown by ecoDrive to change to 3rd, 4th & 5th Gear lower (Green lines in the above pics)?

    Nopes Amit. The RPM shown is perfect for the ecodrive design. Maintaining these I have achieved max index of 73.

    i agree. in fact changing at such low rpms on 4th n 5th would cause the engine to lag. keeping in mind the low torque figures 1.4 has. 2k is still ok.
