    Drove my Linea to Mandya last weekend (100+ KMS from Bangalore), following is my experience

     It was a very comfortable drive – though we had traffic during Saturday near Mysore road, I was able to maneuver thru them easily.
     Was driving around 80kms so I do not pressurize the engine during the run-in period. But felt very relaxing drive!
     Breaking was very effective
     My family was very comfortable throughout the journey (we were 4 of us)

    Nothing much I can say now as the drive was just 200+ in total. I am planning for a long trip in August, may be then I can share more experience

    Few issues in my car….

     Engine noise is unusual – I was comparing the noise with another MJD, but mine is sounding bit high.
     Bit of vibration on the front doors while playing music while the volume is little high (if the volume cross 10)
     Mild rattling in front door
     Rattling sound near the steering. This sound is not constant – not sure how to go about this.
     Sun curtain doesn’t retracts back in the normal way, it takes it own time to retract completely

    I hope all these problems will get fixed during my first services – but I am planning to visit the showroom sometimes early to get this fixed. I just wanted to wait for 1000kms to complete and see if anything else might come up.

    No, Kedarbendre - I guess that is not ture ;) One of my friend suggested me that - but, I posted that in the forum and got response from Jishnu as not to do that... so i just dropped it and don't want to do any experiment with my beauty :)
