Hi Sukhoi,

Did you consider the petrol automatic too? If yes, what made you decide otherwise?

Congrats on a great car. I think the Fluidic styling really shines on the Elantra the most out of all the current Hyundai offerings.

Hi, Many congratulations on owning the beauty. It looks smashing in red and the fluidic theme really shines on this car.
I am also looking for an upgrade and elantra is one of the contenders. But the downside to me is the inability to squeeze in a 3rd person at the back seat due to the wide arm rest and raised firm center portion of the rear seat. Any comments on this?

Hey Sukhoi30,
What's the service interval for the 1.8 Petrol?
Also, what are the paid service charges?
Does it feed on Synthetic or Miniral Engine Oil?

Default Hyundai Elantra Fluidic - 50000 kms in 3 years... The Lady in red is still 'RED'

My Hyundai Elantra Fluidic - SX Petrol has now clocked 50,000 Kms. It has been a joy ride with Elantra for the past three years. It just seem like yesterday that I had published my initial ownership reviews HERE.

Apart from couple of minor accidents and a nagging steering wheel sound issue (more on this later), it was a smooth ride with Elantra.

Accidents

1.
Date : Nov 2013
-- An Eicher Truck hit from behind in a traffic jam situation which damaged the rear right end tail lights and part of the bumper. The reverse sensors were also damaged and the dickey door had a large dent.

Total Cost of Repairs : Rs. 38304
My Contribution : Rs. 16588

Better sense prevailed after this accident and I went for a comprehensive coverage in my next insurance renewal.

2.
Date : Apr 2015
-- Brushed past a stationary Maruti Van in a congested market area in Matheran. The left side door was badly bruised and there was a small dent. After polishing, didn't see any color there was no scratches seen. There is a slight dent, but I choose to ignore it.

Total Cost : Rs. 2000 (For Polishing)

Servicing Details

1st Free Service - 1000 Kms

At this service point, Elantra power steering started giving a problem. Whenever, I turned the steering wheel a grinding sound was coming. The service adviser recorded this sound and sent it to Hyundai for diagnosis. Hyundai recommended to replace the entire Steering Wheel rack. Since the vehicle is under warranty, they offered to change it without any cost to me.

Problem Fixing : 49802 Kms

Cost : Rs. 6184

Road Trips


Mar 2014

Navi Mumbai --> Gandhinagar --> Bikaner --> Jaipur --> Ranthambhore --> Udaipur --> Navi Mumbai

3000 Kms Covered

May 2015

Navi Mumbai --> Goa --> Navi Mumbai

1000 Kms Covered

Addditional smaller road trips to Matheran, Nashik. Regular weekend trips to Pune.

Mileage

10 - 12 Kms/Lt on city roads

14 Kms/Lt on highways


All in all Elantra is serving me well and I am enjoying the ride. Apart from the steering wheel sound no major wear and tear related issues are seen. The steering wheel sound has come back but its intensity is not high. I am planning to take it back to the service center for another check up.

Someone had commented in my initial ownership thread that the RED color could fade over time. Well, I haven't see any such issue with my Elantra. The color is as bright as it was when I purchased. Yes, there is a bit of circular scratches made by the car washing guy, but that happens to any vehicle, isn't it? Also, some minor scratches here and there is expected.
