    No. We don't get rain sensing wipers at 6lacs. These things belong to Chevrolet Cruze, Corolla Altis etc.

    Auto door lock at 20kmph(Punto/Linea) vs 7kmph(Figo) vs 40kmph(i20 after G-Scan tool unlocking)

    I remember when I was once reading Punto and Linea reviews on team-bhp, there was a member who complained about auto door lock at 20kmph instead of lower speed like 7kmph that comes in Figo.
    He quoted an example where a young girl had pressed the boot open button the center console just when they started driving and hadn't reached 20kmph.

    Well, episodes like these do not occur to us daily but instead there is a major advantage of auto lock speed set at 20.
    When we take out our car from our home and others are still to enter the vehicle, the car gets locked as 7kmph is crossed very easily(even at parking speeds). Whereas 20kmph is achieved when we are all set and driving.

    i20 has a hidden auto lock feature that only a few know about can can be activated at service center. But it locks at 40kmph.

    20kmph is the ideal as per my views.

    They could have provided an option to set the speed at which auto lock function gets enabled. Something similar to programmable speed limit buzzer.

    @keshav : During my school days my English teacher used to say "Be brief , it helps to reduce errors", simliarly
    "lesser software helps reduce bugs", being a developer myself who have seen a Ford focus end up on top of a footpath (while testing the reverse parking assist) because of a simple Boolean which I carelessly forgot to reset its better to live with lesser s/w if possible.

    Edit- This is a follow up post to the issue I posted earlier while discussing the rear windshiled nozzle location. RoyJ had the same issue earlier in his car.

    Thanks RoyJ. Bingo! I got my dad to check for water dripping down near the left front tyre as I tried to wash the rear windshield. And yes there was water dripping down.
    Also, my washer fluid reservoir had gone empty last week on it's own. This explains why the reservoir was empty when I checked it one week after bringing her home.
    Will visit the service center soon or get it fixed at the time of first service.
    It is impossible to reach there and fix it otherwise could have tried myself.

    Also, how was yours fixed since you had the same issue? Do they need to lift the car on that hydraulic platform to do this? ::V

    The first time it was fixed at Kulathunkal motors when I went there for a free checkup camp. I told them the issue, and one service technician just reached under and fixed it. But it fell off again two days later.
    Next time I took it for second service, I told them the issue and they fixed it. Probably they fixed it while it was on the lift as it has not fallen of since then.

    Does anybody know what's the color code for Bossa Nova White. I was thinking of ordering paint to touch up the bumper paint which has chipped due to stones etc.

    open your door (driver side i guess ) the colour code is written just below the locking arrangement on the side

    Could not find it on all four doors locking system. I gues would have to go to TASS to find color code.
