Thumbs up i10 to be here!

Nice car and nice write up..
and, what better tonic for me ( I am planning to bring her home, in Feb '10).

Two things I feel like asking here:
1. Was the beige really so bugging? or you just wanted a change!?
(I had a TD of the car- but really didnt notice the dash so much- as a distraction, I mean..)

2. You got the Michelins on stock wheels?
( FYKI: I am thinking of going for 1.2 Kappa- Magna- Vanilla White )

Care.

Ace.

Just completed 50K kms on the i10. Trouble free and uneventful period. Some highlights:

-> No service done since 37K kms. Oil change done @ 39K kms. Changed the spark plugs to NGK G-Power, and wipers to plain Bosch. No other expenditure.

-> Changed oil from Shell synthetic (I think the old Shell synthetic cans were 5W50, or were they 15W50) to Castrol Edge 5W40 @39K kms. Felt it to be slightly better than the Shell. The mileage is a tad better.

-> Changed oil again @ 49K kms, continued with Castrol Edge 5W40. I know that Shell is now available with 5W40, but wanted to continue with Castrol Edge. This might change @ 59K kms!

-> After moving back to B'lore, most driving has been on the highways. I use it very rarely in the city, instead commute by city volvos most of the time. Trips to Hyderabad (3 trips), Coonoor, Tanjavur, Chikmagalur (2 trips) and Mysore. Trouble-free drives.

-> The dreaded steering rattle surfaced @40K kms but disappeared after some steering damping was done @ Advaith, ORR. The fix seems permanent as it hasn't surfaced for 10k. This was done FOC.

The journey continues!

@ace: sorry didn't see this thread in a long time! hope you got your i10 and enjoying driving her.

I followed this thread closely before eventually picking up our I10 on December 13. I have documented out ownership experience at:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ve-dwarfs.html

Thanks for all your inputs on the I10.

Regards,
Melvyn

Great thread this. Was just curious about the servicing costs though. Did you get the replacements done as mentioned in the manual for the 30K milestone? If so, how much did it cost? I have a feeling I am being fleeced with a 7K servicing for a 30K reading, this includes change of air, oil and fuel filters, spark plug and what not.

Sorry for the late reply.

No, I spent that much at 55K, not 30K. In fact, I don't think they have replaced fuel filter yet! Spark plugs I changed @54K to NGK G-Power BKR5EGP bought from JK automobiles, JC road for ~Rs 750. So asked the service center to not bother. In fact I am not sure if spark plugs are mandated to be changed at 30K.

54K since I was late for the mandated service by 4K kms (supposed to be done at 50k), but the car was good, so why rush! Only downside being, if something had gone wrong they would have a solid reason to refuse warranty!

Some of the things the guy must have done is "good to do", not "imperative". Some clearly seem "moolah rouge"! But now that it is done don't worry. Be on your guard next time. What I do is to write down stuff I want to get done before hand. That way you can drive the conversation.

After a disastrous first car experience, which was induced in part by the fact that it was a pre used Opel Corsa, the i10 has been the peppy little performer that it was supposed to be. I have a heavy right foot and even that has not deterred it from returning a mileage of 11-12 kmpl in the city, with the ac.

Ownership has been pleasant and hassle free, except for the fact that I covered the first 10k kms in 4 months of so and my "free" services got exhausted at a service centre that closed down!! So I have no service history for the first 10k kms.

Finished 69K kms. Vehicle is in top form. Looking to sell the car in Hyderabad as have moved back permanently to B'lore and we just picked up a new i10 Sportz Automatic here.

I am going to miss having this car around - hassle-free and dependable. Will post a detailed final six mont ownership once I sell the car.

@sabsubs, yes! The journey has seen many miles, and smiles! I firmly believe its good for many many more kms than just 70K. I will surely post a detailed report once I sell the car.

That is a real good encouragement for the people planning to buy the car.

Congrats on the sportz automatic. You are a true hyundai loyalist !

meanwhile want to check with you if we need to drive the i10 1.1 at a speed of less than 60 kms for the first 3k kms. My sales advisor asked me to do so. however i am of the opinion that these new cars have their engines tuned in such manner that it doesnt matter really if you drive at higher speeds.
I would request folks kindly suggest to me if i need to drive less that 60 kms speed.

There is no harm in crossing 60 km/hr but just make sure to run-in the engine properly for the first 1000-1500 kms. Keep the RPMs below 2500 and you should be fine.

BTW is your i10 Sportz 1.1 iRDE2 version? Can you share what deal you got? Also, is it 2013 or 14 MY? I guess Hyundai has deleted the rear wiper and spoiler from the Sportz

by run-in the engine properly for the first 1000-1500 kms do you mean to stick to the service maintenance chart mentioned by hyundai or does it mean something else (just keep the rmps less than 2500). Sorry i am not too clear about what you meant.
Meanwhile yes mine is a i10 1.1 irde2 sportz variant 2014 model. Thanks to all the advice/guidance on team bhp folks, i avoided going in for the 2013 model. The only offers available this march is (free insurance + loyalty bonus and coporate discount). Yes i got also 5 litres of petrol as good will gesture :-).
The changes i have noticed from previous vairants are rear wiper, spoiler, side mirror indicators deleted.

Posting a rather premature failure on a 26000 run i10 Magna Kappa2 of 2011 vintage

The exhaust pipe from the cat con to the muffler leaked from multiple places and had to be replaced locally - damages Rs.2500.

The MRF tyres seem to have only approx 8000km of life left.

Also saw a wet patch on the carpet in the co-driver footwell area - traced to a clogged rain channel drain below the wipers.

The same i10 has clocked 46000kms , with two new issues reported

a: hard clutch but no issues in engaging gears
b: a.c. compressor does not operate after the a.c. is in operation for approx 45minutes.

The hard clutch left my friend stranded one day with a detached fitting on the clutch cable.The cable was replaced some 25 days back.

Now the clutch cover , clutch disc and release bearing were replaced with OE Hyundai / Valeo.

The a.c. issue was traced to a faulty thermostat valve on the coolant circuit , which was resulting in the high temperature alarm , and consequently a.c. compressor tripping.The valve was serviced and put back.

Here are some pics of the clutch - the disc had some 25% life left but the bearing and the cover were gone.

The old clutch disc

The old release bearing

The new clutch and disc

The car rides like new on the new clutch set , plus a set of 4 Yokohama Earth1 tyres.
