Here in Europe a Diesel has to have shorter inspection times like for the Petrol we have 15000km and 30000km for the Diesel we have 10000km and 20000km also the diesel needs to have a fuel filter changed .and also it is a dirty smelly fuel and you often get it all over your hands by filling up
The 1400 petrol engine in the Logan is just right for the car When I travel to England I drive a constant 140kmh and recieve a fuel consumption of 7,4 ltrs to 100 kms .I am not Knocking the diesel it is a good engine if you drive a high milage per year like 20000 miles it is worth buying but if you drive 12 to 15000 then the petrol is for you and like I say the 1400 is in my eyes the best buy

nilu.. i think whoever buys a car in India does a simple calculation... when I did mine i assumed that i would drive 12000km a year.. and i computed the standard service costs in.. my calculations told me that i would need 3.5-4 years to break even with the additional cost of a Diesel variant ... and when I added the interest i would accrue on the INR 1.4Lakh differential even if i just left it in my bank.. it was plain to me that GLX is what i wanted...

now i may be wrong and others may have diferences of opinion.. but i am happy with my decision...

ride quality/engine sound etc - hardly any difference.. in fact the petrol variants of Logan sound like their diesel cousins.. the chamber sound proofing is rossly inadequate.. but all you have to do is crank up your radio (eh Stu?)

PostSubject: Re: Finally booked my logan   Tue Mar 03, 2009 5:05 pm

but my main concern is about the maintainence cost that is (as i know) much more in diesel than in petrol..........this is our first car so i have no idea about after-effects...........

beacause i have heard that diesel engine cars need more maintainence since the vibration is much more.......
what say??????????

Not really much relation to the vibrations, actually, normally diesels require longer service intervals and yes parts are a little costly.
Infact many of the Logan parts prices have surprisingly gone up (Source : Latest Autocar)
will try and put the list here!
Also, in case of modern diesels, the cost of maintainance isnt as much as it used to be! Still, it all depends on how much are u going to drive it!

thanks...........bcoz maintainence is the main aspect..........

i would perhap drive the car hardly 15000 kms a year, but the main concern was maintainence&f.economy ,why i rejected ford on the first day........

great icono, now i would decide perhaps on the basis of your comment, whether to go for petrol or diesel..........

please mention the ride quality, engine sound, a.c. quality, pick up, and of course mileage with/out a.c.

Hi nilanjan, though I didnt drive my car yet, I checked it out yesterday, the car had run for 35 KM from the stockyard till showroom, the trip computer showed me the speed with which it was driven 40.9 KM per hour and the mileage got till now which it showed to be 12.5 KM per litre and the ac was on when I entered the car so I am assuming the mileage to be with AC ON .. which is pretty good for a brand new car running its first 35 KMs Smile .

That is exactly the same calculation as mine Yes just turn up the radio
or put the Motherinlaw in the back she will drown out any exess engine noise
Actualy I find the car gets louder between 100 and 120 and hen up to 150 it quietens this is something that happens with lots of cars and even trucks

Hi Friends,
[100 KM Update]
Got the delivery last friday evening, the odo read 35 Kms, couldnt drive much for last 2 days due to some hectic office work. Took the car today to my office, it was a wonderful experience driving Logan through the same road I used to drive my maruti 800. The suspension is awesome, also I felt i was sitting on a truck(height wise), all other cars seemed smaller( even other logans Wink ), loved the drive very much. Drove the car always below 2000 rpm and a max speed of 70 kmph and AC always on. At the beginning of my drive had reset my trip computer and checked it at the end of the day, the mileage reading in my trip computer showed a whooping 14.2 Kmpl, dont know how much I can believe that but that made me really very happy Smile ..
A problem i noticed was that my car got hot after the drive, I ignored it, but then the driver side power window and the central locking buttons(only these 2) too got hot. It got me worried, if the heats reaching the dash then theres some problem. Also there was some plastic/rubber burning smell coming from the bonnet. May be the external rubber engine coating might be getting hot, anyways would get it examined by the dealer. Did any of you face a similar issue in your new car?

pleased to hear you love your Logan One tip do not drive below 2000 revs keep to 2000 by all means but when the engine is not pulling it is ok but dont make your engine Pull below 2000 use your gears The smell you are getting is defo from the NEW exhaust and hot engine parts .and like i said you cshould not run under 2000 this is called labouring an engine nad it WILL get overheated
my rule of thumb is 2000 is the lowest reves to drive in you can cruise at 30 mph in 5th and at about 1300 revs but dont give gas if you want to speed up up change down one or if a hill comes do a block change of 2 or more gears
You will know which to use
Turn off the AC and you will also find a better fuel consumption but you need the AC in India .............Do You ?? I would have the windows down
Enjoy your Logan and dont be frightened to give it a bit of gas It will love it and you will have it even longer
Run it in !!!!! 1000 Kms is enough and dont go over 4000 revs (but take it to it every so often ) and you can drive at 130kmh and after the 1000km are finished THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER
Get out on those Indian Highways and show the rest your tailights
I do in Germany

Hi Friends,
Needed to ask about Insurance, I got my insurance certificates and on checking it I found electrical/electronic parts are not covered under insurance. Why is it so? also the insurance amount is around 7k lesser than the amount the dealer charged me. On speaking to the dealer he said, electronics are not covered under insurance and he would refund me back the rest of the amount. What should i do? get back the money or get the electronics insured? Is your car electronics insured?

Hi Friends, Please tell me whether your logan was insured for electrical parts by the dealer.. and how necessary is it to get insured? what are the procedure to insure them now that I already have a insurance without them.

i got the insurance paper, and nothing was mentioned about the insurance..(i mean which parts are insured)...but the dealer told me that fiber parts and glass parts are not insured....metal body,engine parts are insured....i hope electric wirings are also included......

but did the dealer gave you in writing, specification of all the parts which fall under the insurance, or did he just said you about the parts that can be insured???????

Nothing to do with vibrations thats a lot of rubbish it is more to do with Engine oil and filter and also fuel filter .The diesel motor needs servicing at shorter intervals than its Petrol brother it also need new filters at shorter intervals just look at you oil after a month it will be turning black where a Petrol engine the oil is still looking clean after 10000 kmStuBut I would not buy a diesel due to those service costs
