I just bought a new SR dual cab 2.8 diesel. Everything good, but there are two problems:
- fuel tank size: it says 80L. But when the range showed only 40km, I went to petrol station to fill in, it was full with 59L diesel.
dealer explanation: fuel consumption will be higher while engine is still settling in. range is only a rough estimate and may be off a bit especially while car is new. when the fuel gauge is on "0" (empty) guest has 12L reserve to get to a fuel station.
When I picked the car, the km gauge was: 38km. It was 538km when I went to petrol station to fill petrol. So roughly the fuel consumption is: 59L/5.38=10.9L/100km.
the tank actual size = 40km*10.9L/100km + 12L + 59L = 75.36L < 80L
But question is: Is this normal?
- whistle noise: When I drive over 50km/h, (haven't tested on free way with 100km over/h), there is whistle noise, like boiled water in kettle.
dealer explanation: this noise is normal while vents are open to fresh, to avoid noise, adjust vents to recirc to avoid whistling noise. I asked the service guy if they had test drive for this problem, they said yes.
But after, when I drive on the road, even I close the vent, turn off the fan and aircon, the whistle noise is still there.
What problem may it be?
Any suggestion give to me please?
