    Hi all,
    Finally the poetic, gorgeous, exquisitely curvy and the ever obedient LINEA was at home last week (sorry for the delay in posting, was out of state for 3 days). Clocked 1200 Km in about 5 days of travelling and the experience is just great to say the least.

    Few niggling problems though at the time of delivery. Delivery was late, waited for almost 3 hours to get the delivery but it was worth the wait after seeing the vehicle AC vent on the driver's side had a missing piece (replaced by the dealer later). The driver's side door was not opening from outside after unlocking the doors. So had to make another trip of 100 Km (both ways) to get it rectified. Some connection had come out,problem fixed. I find the driver side door handle not so smooth..it opens with a thud unlike the other doors which open nice and smooth...

    Driving is great. The car is very stable,seats are comfortable.Engine response is nice and smooth and it doesn't feel as if you are driving a diesel car, pickup not as bad as some of the other members have written though its definitely not anything special, though on steep uphills if the rpm falls then its a bit tardy. Getting back from 5th to fourth gear is a bit notchy i felt view from inside the cabin is good. I liked the seating position, yes, head room behind is little tight. Driver information is adequate though i feel the display could have been improved.

    Couldn't understand Trip B setting and usage, someone please enlighten me on this.

    Dust on Tuscan Wine colour is very evident, needs more frequent washing.Would like to add few accessories other than the standard ones provided by the dealer. Reverse sensors is one of them.

    any advice for reverse sensors (type/make)?

    Will post few photographs soon.

    In the meantime, Drive safely, year end so be extra cautious.No reckless driving and WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. :-D

    Congrats Vaibhav. :)

    Regarding TripB. There are two trip meters, trip A and trip B. Trip B can be enabled or disabled from the My Car settings. Do take time to read the manual. You will get to know a lot of new and important things.
