    That's great. As a customer we should clearly know what's covered in warranty and what's not. Else its gonna be a day loot at the Service Centre. :(

    Hello folks !
    Time for update

    Did run no. #31 ( if m not wrong )
    Again Mumbai rajkot Mumbai
    Odo stands on 34k kms..

    Issues are raising their heads, have uneven tyre wear n tear in 3 out of four Tyres, on digging much details, the WA guy suggested to change lower arm bushing due to which left pulling persist and resulted into uneven tyre wear out .

    moreover Tyres need replacement now, planing for 195/70 or 195/65 on r14 stock rims,

    Also trip to punjab, the most awaited one, is on cards , that would add around 4k kms round trip...

    Also next will do the service diy, will change the oil n filter frequency to 10k kms rather than 15k,
    But didn't find any video or diy steps for changing coolant, transmission oil, brake oil as they are still pending to be changed for the first time

    Need to check brake pads, but didn't heard any noise while applying brakes & majority of kms came from highways, so I guess I can strech it a bit,

    Also there are small scratches on front and rear number due to some mumbaikars,

    Last trip summary
    Overall FE, 15 days city usage included, didn't reset the odo

    Well its time for update, something good something bad,
    Good first, changed the tyre to falken sincera 185/70/r14, at tyre x, Mulund,
    Got the good deal of 14k;) for the set of 4,
    & will continue the spare one to the stock 165/80/r14,

    Now the bad one, Punjab trip is postponed/canceled for now, the reason for which I upgraded the tyre ealiar, the previous Jk has still 2-3k kms left, has done 34k kms but they have uneven wear too.

    Also, today, 31dec, 2 years back I booked my car,
    At around at 8pm in eve, the whole staff of pride fiat rajkot was at my home, for a td, and simply booked without paying any peny,:)

    Heartiest congratulations @vtlreja2 on completing 2 yrs with the car. In 2 yrs you have run about 3k kms more than what I have run in 2.5 yrs. Keep the mile crunching and drive safely.

    @Sand@ril Congratulations in advance. Hoping to see an ownership thread very soon on the forum

    Hello @Sand@ril ,
    So sorry mate, I have moved to Maharashtra now, so can't come even if I wish to do so,:)
    But I would say do a proper pdi, they will try to resist, but should do it by yourself ,
    Also check each n every thing while getting the delivery and if anything missed out, do let them know.
