    @rohitsharma This you will learn by trial and error. Only remember , that in any car , as soon as the car roles , it should be in the second gear.
    For Avvy , I have noticed that around 15kmph it can be in 3rd gear , 35 kmph - 4th gear; 50 kmph - 5th gear. Others may differ with this.
    It depends on the driving style.

    @rohitsharma, which car you use to drive before driving this one?

    Posting some pics of the floor lamination of footwells of front & rear seats.

    Loading Bay after tumbling the rear seats fully. rps20151206_184826.jpg 20151206_185808.jpg 20151206_185825.jpg
    Ideally, he should have fold & wrapped the rexine around the flap over the jack & spanner assembly in the boot just like we do it while we do it while wrapping the books, but he has cut it crudely at the flap's borders.

    Anyways, atleast now the risk of the original flooring getting soiled is reduced substantially.

    Usually she gets bath of plain water available from Krishna river . Today, Avventura received a soap bath. 20151206_140203.jpg 20151206_140213.jpg rps20151206_143631.jpg rps20151206_143546.jpg rps20151206_143450.jpg rps20151206_142618.jpg

    There are some tar marks on the alloys, how to remove them without spoiling the beauty of the alloys? rps20151206_142723.jpg

    Posting some pics of the underbody antitrust treatment taken today. Is it done properly? rps20151206_142421.jpg rps20151206_142355.jpg rps20151206_142313.jpg

    Floor lamination under the seat.

    It always takes some time to get used to know the engine & driving dynamics of a car which is not driven by you in the past , after few days your car would not stall, don't worry.

    For time being check the tyre's air pressure everyday in the morning. If it is decreasing then, it means that the air is leaking, which might be due to a puncture in the tyre or the tyre valve.

    Got the 30 k km servicing done @krishna FASS Satara. Car was given to them at 11 AM, it was handed over back at 3 pm (Total 4 hrs), satisfied with the SA Gurav. Jay Vijay FASS use to take 9 to 5, full 8 hours for similar service.

    Total bill Rs 6600.
    They also changed a washer or bush of the right front suspension under warranty. This suspension was making some 'gud gud' noise whenever it use to pass over rough patch on the tarmac. Now the noise has gone


    Now a days Jay Vijay is crowded due to Pandit 's FASS closure hence anticipated more time there & took a decision to get the servicing done at Satara. It is 100 km away from PUNE, but you all know Fiats are always worthy of such long drives on highway for any damn reason.
