    One query to J.Ravi Sir, I have heard from my friend who has done leh trip on bike that after completing leh trip on car, you will face lot of niggles and rattling issues. Since you have done this trip for more than one time, so just want honest feedback from you.

    The only issue I faced in my Linea after visiting Leh and Khardungla was rattling noise at idling due to bent engine guard plate, thanks to countless underbody hits. This was got set right at Fairdeal Motors, Srinagar, and I continued my homeward journey afterwards via Chandigarh. Similarly, after driving on Kinnaur-Spiti-Lahaul circuit in Himachal Pradesh, my Linea got her bent engine plate straightened at Goyal Motors, Patiala, and continued driving via Jaisalmer to Bangalore.

    Thanks Ravi...this gives me more confidence. Obviously if we treat our cars like our wife then nothing will happen to it :p
