    Hi Experts,

    Two days back i completed my first free service in RDC ekkaduthaankal service centre. I complained about the poor AC flow from right driver side vent.SA accelerated the car to 3k RPM and informed me that your engine was not set yet. He suggested me to go for a long drive with a speed of 120kmph.

    What would be the reason for this?-Any suggestions?

    Also, some good amount of smoke is coming from the exhaust when my car is moved with some initial acceleration.SA said this is common for all 90 hp.Is this acceptable?

    One mistake could have distracted the driver's attention,few of them listed below:-
    1.if the mobile have slipped from the hands.
    2.by mistakenly if the photographers hands kissed the stalk.
    3. While drive listening to the soft music, unknowingly if the hands have come in contact with the next button on HU and track might have loud music.

    If any please list here.

    I agree with Ganges. Thats quite risky. I have learnt this with experience that cars in India are meant for this speed but the fellow people, padestrians, drivers and roads aren't.

    The SA should not "suggest" a customer to have a highway drive at 120kmph. Because this implies a compulsory remedy/action to drive at such speed to set the engine. What if the driver is relatively inexperienced for high speed highway drives or the conditions are not good for such drive?
