My baby Beat
Hi all, I am here to write the complete review of my beat which finished 4200 Kms. I bought my baby chevy beat in April 2010, Initially, when I was driving the car for first 2-3 weeks I felt the car is very difficult to handle in the city in heavy traffic and I felt a car is not smooth at all because of new engine and gear box which are not at all responsive. I took my car to my native place Kundapur-Udupi in the second week of May 2010, This drive made my car very smooth and responsive compare to my earlier drives. In this drive I calculated mileage of the car by doing full tank of fuel, I got 18KM/L without AC with normal BS-4 petrol. In this drive we were hearing some sound from the left front tire on the way near udupi, My expert driver took the car into the Chevrolet service station in udupi on the way and they found that the screw of a small mud protecting plate of break is unthreaded and they fixed it in free of cost and also fixed my remote lock it was not working fine(Please note the service in out of station in free of cost even though I didn't have the warranty card). I returned to Bangalore after some days I have done with my first service in free of cost in Sundaram motors( I felt this showroom is very good in satisfying the costumers), at this time car is behaving so responsive and we can feel the smooth drive pleasure. But after the service, I felt pickup is very poor if I switch ON AC in heavy traffic( I didn't try using Auto AC in traffic which decides the maximum performance of engine). I drive the car to Mysore every month and each time I monitor the FE i.e 18-19KM/L in Highway and 11-13 KM/L in city, On an average, I am getting more than 17KM/L. I felt Issue with the car is an only poor pickup in the lower gears(2nd gear), poor pickup when manual AC is ON and inflexible gear shift sometimes(not feeling smooth gear shift) But I felt an enormous improvement in the engine and gearbox day by day in terms of smooth response. Looking forward to done with next major service at 5000 KMs and wanted to change the engine oil. The quality of the interior and exterior is very good compare to Maruti Ritz(For Maruti, price has to pay only for K series engines ). will update you all after my next service. Bye..
