    Dear all,

    I have completed a trip to Tirupathi on my new Linea MJD ....Hyderabad....Vijayawada...Machilipatnam(near)....Vijayawada...Tirupati...Tirumala(uphill tirupati) ..Vijayawada...Hyderabad.A Total of 1850 KM in 5 days..

    Initial Findings:(Won't repeat all the Goodies of Linea.)
    =================================

    1)Overall mileage : 17.4 /1850 KM :(Highway+City + Village roads + Tirumala Ghat(just 50 KM) ..with 4 adults+2 children..Full A/c on..current ODO 2010 KM.

    2)Frequently felt the infamous Left pulling issue.

    3)Second gear is a pain in city traffic and on steep uphills.(Most frustrating of entire package.)

    4) Very interesting observation even the First gear wont pull smoothly if you are downshifting gear from say ...4..3..2..1...but better when 4..3..Neutral...1/2 seconds gap /...1 st

    Request your comments and suggestions.. especially on 3 & 4th points..

    Regards,
    Jagadish

    Hi. cheers to you and yours for the superb Linea mjd.

    About (3) and (4): have you adjusted yourself fully to the revving pattern needed in traffic and on inclines, in order to 'stay in the powerband', as they say? Since you're coming from a petrol car, i feel that might have something to do with your observations here. Play around, match revs with gear differently, and then settle on a better, more satisfying and apt driving/gearshifting@right rpm pattern?

    cheers
