25,000 kms of wanderlust with my trusted comrade Hyundai i20 Magna
Selection of car :
It all began in April 2010 when I landed from US after a year long stint. I had sold my Indica xeta before moving to US hence I was in need of new car. In my different stints in US , I had owned only Toyota and Lexus cars. However in India Toyota Corolla is ridiculously priced as compared to US. At that time liva and etios were not launched otherwise blindfolded I would have bought them. Other brand which was in my mind was Honda but again Jazz was overpriced hence didnt shortlist.
Had a very bad experience with Tata Indica Xeta hence Tata was out of question.
When I was watching TV one day the i20 uber cool advertisement caught my eye and I decided to take a test drive. The car had a sporty look and the fluidic design was contemporary. Called the dealer Sanjay Hyundai in Pune and the sales guy arrived on time to my home for giving me the test drive. Took a long 10 km test drive and me and my wifey were bowled over by the interiors of the car. The performance was also good. Hence booked the car immediately selected white color magna model. Tried to negotiate for some accessories and he readily agreed to install central locking system, seat covers, mats etc. He also said that there was 4 week waiting period.
Finally on 7th May 2010 we took the delivery of the car and the journey started from that day. My mother and grandfather arrived at the dealership and then pooja was done and everyone congratulated me for the new car. I was not an active reader of team bhp then hence I didnt perform any PDI before delivery in stockyard. Did just normal inspection of tyres, color, scratches etc. It was my luck that they didnt sell me a lemon .
Special mention of Sanjay Hyundai here. Didnt face any issue during the whole buying process.
Then went to Phadke car decor in Kothrud and installed the Garware icecool sunfilms. They did a thorough professional job.
From then on I have used my car for traveling to office every day 36 kms drive.
The first hiccup I faced was the clutch became loose in couple of months. Took it to the Sanjay Hyundai service center and they replaced a spring free of cost and from then onwards there was no problem with clutch.
Long and short trips done till now :
Completed 3 free servicing and 1 paid service. Only suspension struts were changed during paid servicing under warranty. Oh forgot to mention I have taken extended warranty which helped. Servicing have been carried out in Garve Hyundai which is close to my workplace. The SA there was quiet knowledgeble and explained me all the things done during servicing.
Costs of servicing : The first three free servicings costed around Rs. 1200 each. The first paid servicing costed Rs. 4444.
Fuel used :
95% of times I have used HP unleaded petrol
Time for some photos now :

Adding few more photos of the scratches on the car.
Hyundai A.S.S is definitely going to rip me off. Any suggestions of a good body shop in Pune area would be helpful.
