  1. zig-zag at 120 kmph? looks like wheel balancing issue. Can you post the alignment report in the forum?

    @Italia-Linea, you said it right. I have used the diesel tuning express box and what I have found and have been wondering for quite some time is why my fuel pump is leaking. May not happen in all cases but possible in some for sure. I have stopped using the tuning box now and am quite used to the normal power.

    @jishnu I changed my suspension recently and got the wheel alignment done at Madhus, the alignment was perfect but steering wasn't centered.

    Went back to them today and now the car is perfect and the steering is back to normal.

    I would still suggest you to try getting the wheel alignment at Madhus once, explain them about the problem and check if that resolves the issue. It would cost you just 300 bucks and a little bit of time, that's it !!!

    P.S Most of the folks including me don't rely on wheel alignment job done at service centers !!! :thumbup:

    Update:

    Completed 47500 Kms..

    Had been to Goa from Dharwar where we are currently put up. The car seriously coped up well with the serpentine roads. The car is just a breeze to drive around the ghats, what a brilliantly handler it is. I wonder how even with four adults on board, and a boot full of luggage, the car pulled cleanly on the steep climbs in 3rd gear.. It was quiet a surprise to all of us. The average mileage i got was 18.2 Kmpl according to the MID.

    Sorry part: I managed to dash a rock at parking speed. Did not notice the rock was in front of the car and Bang! Got down and checked. Found that the Fog lamp housing had come out (Though i put it back easily), and a lot of scratches on the Bumper. Sorry Linea! :(

    Overall, the car was pulling well even with 4 people on-board.

    Thanks & Regards

    Great to hear that Jishnu...Linea with old suspension setup is indeed a good handler man.

    How is the left pulling issue you had in your car ? Is it fixed ?

    My car is also pulling towrads left, during service few days back I again did the aloignment and its OK.
    FASS told me that , there is a bent in the rear left alloy, and I myself saw it has little wobling, is it causing the pulling ?
    Even though The pulling is not too much but I have to be always firm on my steering, sometimes it causes irritation and strain while driving long distance.
