A rattle has cropped up on the outside front right. It occurs every time the road surface is slightly bumpy. Even though it was highlighted when the car went for the first service, the workshop couldn’t silence it.
The seats. We found out that the seats are just too soft. So even though they sport the right contours, fabric and support for short commutes, longer periods of time spent on these seats did translate into some body aches.
Constant gearshifts. This motor feels alive post 2000rpm, so staying around this rpm for any performance oriented manoeuvre is imperative. In the city, this also means constant gear shifts to keep up with traffic. The gear shifts could have had a more positive feel too.
Our Tiago has been busy with photo shoots and testing support errands in connection with the constantly changing fascia’s in our parking lot. Returning consistently over 15kmpl within the city, it keeps that smile pasted on my face. We’re looking forward to the coming month where the Tiago will be put through some long distances. I’ve already begun to appreciate the overall feel-good factor this car proposes.
