Default re: kpzen to kpgetz : Two Getz CRDi's join the family !! - 1,11,111 kms

Hey guys a quick question, was having a lot of issues with my clutch, it kept on getting very spongy. Reason was that my break/clutch fluid was leaking so it kept on getting drained, so used to fill it every 100 Kms, n everything used to be fine, Finally managed to get some time off n take the car, after a through check the they discovered a leak in the regulator which controls the flow of fluid to the break n clutch, which needs to be replaced, have anyone had this issue before .?? the are quoting 6K for the part.

Woah kpzen that is some Milestone dude! Congrats on the same

I own a Petrol Getzy myself and can assure you that its pretty cheap on maintenance. But going by your words, I have an un-easy feeling of how long this will last!!

Congratulations Kp! The Getz CRDi is one of my favourite Turbo diesel cars.

Your experience reconfirms team-bhpian Jaggu's observation that Hyundai cars are expensive to maintain in the long run?

Could you please provide a breakup of the amount?

My elder brother owns a petrol Getz since 2006 and it has done about 80000 odd kms. He cries each time the car goes into the service station.

Congratulations KP on reaching the 100K milestone (guess its time to start a separate thread on the 100K club) & wishing you many more happy (s)miles with your Getzy. I can imagine how you would have felt looking at the magic 6 digit figure on the odo.

As Moralfibre has mentioned above please share with us the break-up of the 25K (labor & material cost). It is no doubt on the higher side, but then we love our cars so much that we don't mind spending that moolah. I am assuming here that you got her serviced from HASS. These guys have started overcharging off late. Why haven't you tried an independent & reliable garage. I have stopped visiting the Authorized ASCs long time back, when my car was out of warranty period. That way we can keep the maintenance costs very low. You would be surprised to know that I spent a little over 6K for my Indica's 100K service, which I got done from an independent garage. Had it been a TASC, it would have definitely crossed Rs 10K. Just in case if someone is interested you can find my 100K service details (labor & material cost) in my ownership thread here (msg # 74) --> http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...-beyond-5.html

Thanks MF,

The car is very reliable, mechanical parts like clutch/ suspension have lasted 100k kms but when replacement is required, the parts are very costly and labour cost is insane.
Paid close to 5k for labour and tax.

Bill is at home, will post the break up soon.

Thanks. You are spot on.
But, when you have a rare specie like Getz crdi, sourcing the parts become tough and then you need really skilled labour to do the job which is hard to find these days.
For eg. Replacing fuel filter on this car needs a special extended tool else there's every chance of screwing up something else.

Also, the engine bay is really cramped with that monster engine. For replacement of clutch / timing chain, HASS have to remove the engine.

Congrats kp and stop cribbing about the service bill man. I quite don't know of any other getz in this country which has done so many highway runs like yours.

4 days extended leave and you drive to Bangalore all the way from Delhi, just to go see Nandi Hills , lol. Anything on the cards for an upgrade or you plan to retain the Korean work horse?

Thanks JK/ RJ,

I ain't complaining about the reliability of the car. Its been FANTASTIC.

Apart from the daily blast on expressway, it has
Done a cross country run, (to see nandi hills lol)
couple of runs to mumbai for work,
got stuck in jaisalmer desert,
conquered and drifted on the mighty RANN,
several runs to the himalayas of Himachal.

And, still runs like a dream and keeps shocking ppl with cars costing almost 3 times more.

BRILLIANT car.. Wonder why Hyundai didn't try to sell this !!!!
Right now, can't think of one car that could be a replacement for this Korean missile.

Break up of 100k kms service bill. ( Done in 2 installments ) 1st the suspension/ link rod assy was done. then, Timing chain/ clutch replacement was done

Hi Prajesh,

Congrats on the coveted figure.. The only problem / pain is the cost of the Hyundai service now a days. Its total rip off.

Its very true. To replace the fuel filter, it takes time & patience , and which cannot be done easily by a outside garage.

I too own a Getz CRDI which was one of the last ones sold in BAngalore which has run about 42k. Your thread was one the main reason for my buying this EOL product and am enjoying every meter of my ride.

Congrats once again.

Kaushal.

Thanks Kaushal,

Its a rare specie. Have fun.

Note to all GETZ CRDi owners :
After 60k kms keep checking for any traces of engine oil in coolant.
Heard 4 such cases (including my other Getz).
And, in 3 cases, Oil cooler was the culprit, which will cost around 12k.
If not detected in time, the engine head will be gone.

Freedabad,

1. Is the Pete's for your Getz still connected? Any downsides observed from its extended usage?
2. Did you get the suspension work above done for preventive maintenance or something broke?

@Prajesh - congrats on the 6 digits!!! Am still at 58k, following you at a distance (that only seems increasing!). Did your clutch finally give way, or did you change it anyways? And did you look for after market struts, or decided to stick with OEM? I'll keep an eye open foe traces of Engine oil in the coolant now on, thanks for the heads-up. Did you have any prob with your steering? I have off-late started to feel a lot of vibrations on rough stretches, and also seem to lose steering fluid a bit - topping it up for now, have to check in the service.

I can vouch for Getz Parts being hiked recently. About a year and a half ago, I had to replace the mirror of my right ORVM - came to less than 200 bucks. About a month ago, it was a freakin' 450+ bucks for the same damn mirror.

Am sure Hyundai has jacked up the costs for all spares - Getz / Verna CRDi owners, beware!!!
