Absolutely, I am waiting with bated breath for the launch & much more than that the TBHP review on the new Verna. My preference has always been to the top end variants. If it is not going to burn a far bigger hole in my pocket compared to the mid/base variant, then I will definitely opt for the top end.

Verna Diesel is amazing.
I completed 119000kms.
The feel is the same that I had purchased 4yrs back.
Waiting for the upgraded version of Verna

Thanks once again & no issues even if you have not started your thread yet. If you could guide me to the threads or post here your maintenance costs till date that would be really great. Just want to get an idea, if the Verna is pocket friendly as far as its long term maintenance is concerned.

Default UPDATE - 55,000 KM'S - Small Service Done

Just nearing the 55,000 km mark - 54767 to be precise. This morning was free and service center is just behind my house so thought would go there and get a few things done since the last time I got a service done was nearly 6 - 7 months back and almost 15000 km's back !!

So got the following done -

Engine Oil Change + Oil filter - 1700 Rupees
Air Filter - 400 Rupees
Gear Oil Change ( 2.5 Lt ) - 550 Rupees
Service - 700 Rupees
Throttle Body Cleaning - 95 Rupees

Total 3500 Rupees ( all costs approximate )

Got wheel alignment done free of cost and tipped the service mechanic 200 rupees.

Overall drove for about 2-3 km's and felt a worlds difference in pick up and acceleration. Even a basic service can make a huge difference in the cars running.

Getting my HU changed tomorrow - I have a Alpine CD MP3 HU that does not take in any USB or Aux in's and was fed up of writing CD's.

Ordered a JBL 333 that should arrive tomorrow. Will replace it and plonk in the Alpine in my accent as that one has a very old CD player that only runsFM now.

Will get a slight sunscreen film now as summers have scorching heat. Any suggestions for around 1000 rupees ? I do not want to spend a fortune.

Will keep updating this thread.

The verna is a beauty of a diesel sedan and I am very pleased with it

Good to know that your Verna is rocking. The new Verna review is out on TBHP, hope you have gone through it. What is your initial impression about the new Verna. Should I bet my 1 million rupees on it?

Hi Varun, for sunfilm, you can go for Garware. It's ~800rs and is relatively good. Which engine oil did they use in this service. Looking at the price, I think it will be mineral oil so may I suggest you to not run the car beyond 10k km on it. It will ensure that your car is in the pink of health. Also, diesel engines do not have throttle body. Did they do anything else and billed you for TB cleaning or else it might be a rip-off.

Yes, Garware for 800 rupees sounds great - can you tell me what number / model ( any reference ). Also is this the legal one ( car keeps going to delhi every few weeks and cops are strict there - so cannot use jet black )

Brand was Servo out of a big drum - which is standard for all Hyundai centers as they buy in Bulk. I usually use Castrol CRB.

I am not a oil expert so have zero knowledge technical side. I just make sure it is changed around the 10k mark. Only this time the period went longer BUT car honestly did not give any problems.

I will keep sure I do not do more than 10k from now on as I have full intention of running this car till 1.25 lac km's minimum.

Anything else anyone suggests I do around the 55k mark ? Any other checks / fluid changes etc.

You all will be surprised BUT today the Gear Oil was changed for the first time at 55000 km's !!! The gear shift was butter smooth till today. And after the change it is so much better.

Throttle Body - maybe it is something else - will check on the bill and let you know. They are not a rip off - most people there are very nice and rip off is the last thing on their mind. So might be some sort of cleaning.

Got the JBL 333 - will be getting it installed tomorrow.

Will upload pics of the car's interior and exterior tomorrow to show you all how the car looks like after 55000 km's and almost 3 years later.

Yes, garware is legal. Go for the lighter shade which is legal as per MV act. Most installers know about that. I think that is with 70% visibility. They also give you a certificate that the film meets MV act norms and you can keep it in the car for the cops.

Since you are saying you are new to the engine oils etc, may I suggest you to use Mobil Delvac MX next time. It costs about 250/L. Take my word for it, use it once and after driving for 1000 km on this oil, update your experience. Is your car in warranty? I am not going into the technicals but if you want to, please refer this thread.

Garware Natural Ash on sides and a neat curtain /screen at the back.
Don't put any film on the rear glass.

Why nothing on the rear ? Is it illegal or will it affect visibility ? Anything on the front ? I have never had any film on any of my cars ever !

From the 4 things mentioned I have had 3 done recently except Intercooler Cleaning - How much should that be Prajesh ?

Ok - Gear Oil is changed now so no problem. Will keep in mind this for future. Thanks.

Cops catch you from front, if the rear and front glass has no film, they get a clear view. So, there's a rare chance they'll catch you.
This is just from my experience.

The oil which you have got now is mineral grade, so get it changed at 30k interval.

@vkochar

Even if you delay general service, please do not delay engine oil changes so much. It will do no good for your vehicle in the long run especially since you plan to own it for more than 1 lakh km.

Try to stick to at most a 10000km oil change interval if not less than that.
