    3 litres coolant isn't required as coolant can be substituted by water in worst case scenario. Carry more oil instead.

    @mchanna please share your experience of driving Tjet in Ladakh regions. I am sure that will help @MakeTheMove

    Kedar, TJet was amazing on the Ladhak terrain, I am sure @MakeTheMove will enjoy even more on the HP region.

    Couple of not very serious issues, which can be dealt if driven carefully.

    1. 165 GC makes us nervous in some places
    2. Protruding Nose got scrapped in couple of places
    3. Exhaust system has taken some hit due to flying stones.
    4. Alloys got bent due to high speed impact (when we ran over a sudden hump near Chittorgarh)


    I would take linea again anyday !
