Dear Belta Club fellows,
I have bought a 1.0L belta 2008 model in Aug-2012, having around 16k drove millage on meter at that time (which I think is not true but exceptions are always there), I have drove it on long route couple of times and in same month I drove it to the mountains of Kalar-Kahar with total 3 persons on board including driver. I have witnessed that its giving me around 15.5 km/L with A/C driving with an avg. speed on motorway of 120 km/h. I am quite surprised that with an avg. speed of 120 km/h on motorway the new 1.3L Honda City 2012 model is also giving same millage with total 4 passengers and with A/C, I am not sure how to manage my car's fuel efficiency (at the moment its giving me 10-13 km/l in city), please update that I have recently changed the engine oil and filter, sparking plugs are fine, recently done with normal tuning (plugs & throttle body cleanup with breaking service) before my last long route trip.
Second problem I faced is with A/C, it trips quite a lot (especially at day time with 46 degree outside temp) and turn on when I switch it OFF and than ON after 2-3 min, but yesterday it hasn't turned on for app 5-10 min after that I splashed water on radiator and than A/C started to work, but the tripping problem is persistent and trips at night time as well.
Third problem is with my front passenger side suspension, which is stiff & hard (suspension's oil is also leaked) and not providing any shock absorption, is there any possibility of repairing it or should I replace it with a new one?
One more information I would like to seek from you guys is, my belta is equipped with Simple Audio CD player, I would like to know about any better music solution (which can play mp3 files at least with USB/AUX support etc.) for my belta, how much it will cost me and from where I can buy it in Lahore, and I hope that my Audio CD player can be sold out easily.
So I need you guys advice on these matter that how can I overcome with these issues, apart from these issues I am quite a much satisfied with the ride. I have drove my ride for more than 6k KM. Thanks for your valuable time and comments.
