Thanks ciddharth. I would like to complete 120,000 kms as a second milestone. Upgrade? Not really! From last 3 months, We as a family settled at one place. So, no more weekend family runs. I'm expecting 10,000 kms per year for next 60K.

Thanks Simhi! I was expecting this! No offences to Corolla D-4D owners. Eon is all about City runs. In city streets, Corolla D-4D do struggles for outright acceleration if driver has a light right foot.

P.S: Corolla D-4D is a fantastic car. Please take my comment/comparision in lighter manner!

Thumbs up Re: Hyundai Eon: 3 years & 60,000 kms

Excellent report zalaps!

I have a similar experience. Wanted a car on a strict budget.

- Eon Magna+. Aug 2012. 66.5k done.

- Stock + Remote lock.

- Have kept a 6 month cycle for service. about 12k on the odo for each stint. I do make it a point to tank up at the same pump (with very few exceptions) - HP @ Bodakdev

- Drive 95-100 km everyday between Ahmedabad, Bhat and Gandhinagar.

- Summers with AC around 21 kmpl, winters without AC 23-24 kmpl

- Top speed achieved - 130 kph (not kidding, on a decline) I have seen a video of someone @ 155 on Youtube - Yamuna xpressway to Agra.

Only grouse - pick up. Horrible, especially when racing against time in the morning run to the office!

Dont mind, but I dont get why everybody keeps complaining about the gear level on the Eon. It would be better if people keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel while driving; and let the poor lever dance away merrily. Its certainly not a deal breaker as some feel.

I have a soft corner for cheap honest cars - The Hyundai Eon is just that. It promises to provide cost effective and safe transportation for a family of four with reasonable luxury. And it delivers 100% on that. Agreed its a 3 pot with questionable performance but as a smart city car for a small family, it has very few things against it.
In fact this can be one car that makes the Alto 800 look overpriced!

I own an EON and for the past one and half years i have been getting mileage around 13-14 kmpl. I wonder how do you get 21 kmpl. Please advice on how did you achieve this mileage?

Hi Zalaps,

Fantastic coverage on the EON, great work in putting it together.
I too own a EON and my signture line too reads "A Happy EONian"

I think mine was the first Initital Ownership thread and have been very occasional with the updates on the thread.

I have clocked 21K so far and agree with all the points that you make. The build quality, performance and the satisfaction of the ownership.

I still wonder why Alto does almost 4 times the Sales number to EON. Well, Maruti's got its own huge fan club.

What's the tool you are using to log the data you have compiled here. can you share the same?

Three factors:
  • My drives happen on either highways or less crowded roads.
  • Rare usage of AC
  • I do not accelerate rapidly. Gear Shifts always happened as Gear Suggester.

Good Ownership report with all the real life challenges, complete with service detail. In one word, Neat!

As another person said, this can be used as a template for other reports.

Recently I made a long trip with a 3 pots Polo and trust me there is no difference in behaviour.

Excellent review. Its great to see this little car being driven and loved so much.

We too have an EON ( 0.8 L ) that is now 3.5 years old and primarily or rather only driven by my wife . Its a fine little car that is perfect for city runs , kids going to school , classes and usual errands . There have been no surprises with that car and is reasonably cheap to maintain . Once a year service since we drive it less is also a plus point.

Only thing is that now my wife also dives my City at times and finds the EON too underpowered and a no fun car . May think of swapping it for something else , but not sure about resale value . I would be lucky to fetch even 2.5 lacs.

One thing I would like to mention is that I stay in a coastal area ( JVPD , MUMBAI ) and the car has held up well for rusting . I was apprehensive about this at first when I purchased an A segment car , but have been pleasantly surprised so far.

Enjoy your car and keep this thread updated as time goes.

Its been a wonderful 15 months with our 0.8L Eon too. The car is extremely non fussy, low on maintenance (Once a year service), great AC and surprisingly plush. Total bargain.
My only displeasure is the low GC, hits every speed breaker. Hope they correct this in Ver 2.

Hey Manish,
Thanks for comments. Eon surely is underpowered. At time of upgrade I'll make sure that next car is respectably powered.

Hey Sebring,
I totally agree with you on AC part. It's bone chilling unit. AC never let me down in 45 degree Ahmedabad Summer.

Default Re: Maintenance Log

What a crisp write up. Was skimming through various threads today (tonight actually, it is around 3 am right now) and I came across this. As Rudra Sen has so very rightly pointed out, that this is a crisp and a non nonsense update. I must admit I admire the meticulousness with which you have take logs. Fuelio - first time I heard about this app. Installed, spent around 20 minutes entering info in it, and then back to this thread. Am surely going to be recommending this app. Any other apps you use?

Am also impressed with the Excel screenshots you have put up. If there is a template you use, do share it, unless it has the same parameters we see in the screenshots. Am I right in saying that that's probably a final output. Do you use any forms? Do let me know. Would be of great help.

Hey,
Thanks for kind words. I'm not using any template or form.

Also. The final update.
Car has been sold to a family friend after 4 years & 70000 KM. It served wonderfully till last day. I could not take details of 70K service as it was sold in a week post service.

Following things changed in 70K service over recommended ones:
- Brake Pads
- Hatch Hydraulic Lifters
- Hatch Key Latch
