    Completed about 500 Kms on the T-Jet. Filled in with the second full load of petrol.
    I got a mileage of about 9.9kms in the first fill. It has been driven mainly in the city.
    hopefully i will take for some long drives in the second week of dec. also during christmas we will going in it to Pondicherry.

    So far it has been a very satisfying drive. The only peck on it has been a small blade cut to the leather upholstery. i guess that happened when the sun film was doing his work. noticed it quite late and i dont know what to do. so just will have to live with it.

    The small blade cut needs immediately to be stiched otherwise it will get expanding and inside filling will start coming out.
    I ve also completed almost 500 kms. Milage may be around 12-13 kms/ltr.

    Just go to the nearby show repair wala/shop. They will do it. Just make sure they use the same color thread else it would look nasty.

    Or neatly put Araldite in the cavity created. Would look smooth and invisible to naked eye.

    The cut is not so much to put a stitch. I guess i will get the araldite solution when i visit the dealer. I dont want to mess it up myself. I am bad at DIY.(except for cleaning the car)

    Today experienced a Off-Roading like scenario. While coming to office, because of procession created jam, took a turn to a mud road when i saw a few innovas turning. when i entered i saw it was just a path. But i was mighty impressed with the ground clearance of the T-Jet. There was not even a touch or scrap, went over them with ease. Coming from a baleno it seemed like a SUV ;-)
  8. Guys, Even I am getting an FE of around 9.8 KMPL. I drove around 2700 KMs. I am told that this will increase after couple of services!
