Good to hear that the tires held on even in that high speed run, but have you changed the tire now? I wouldnt have the guts to keep using the car with those tires on.

Very descriptive and interesting read.
Thanks guys. And Krish, we are yet to meet

Here are few numbers from my ownership so far, the car is closing on 36,000 KM on the clock. Apart from fuel, I have spent Rs. 1,34,124.02. The split :

Scheduled Maintenance - Rs. 15,297.00
(this includes regular services + anti-rust treatment, interior cleaning, painting of door handle and ORVM carried out as a part of regular service)

Additional Maintenance - Rs. 15,568.50
(Additional oil change at every 5000 KM, tire rotation, alignment & balancing, tinkering / painting works, wipers blades)

Additional spend - Rs. 1,03,258.52
(Alloys, tires, car audio, K&N filter, 100/90 bulb, HID, sport pedals, fog lamps, Sun film, car detailing, etc.)

The fueling trend is:
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-fueling-track.png
Click on the image to view the graph in its full glory

The bars represent the mileage for each filling, and the line denotes the Rs per kilometer for that refilling.
  • The red dots denote refilling at Shell (where Diesel would have been priced higher in the recent times).
  • The red bar is the trip where I pushed the car the most, doing Nagercoil to Chennai (650 KMs) in about 6 hours.

I do not have the track for filling #15 & 16 as I was not in India then, and my father was using the car (am assuming my father would have refilled the car 3 or 4 times)

The weighted average of mileage so far is 14.46 KMPL, and the weighted cost per KM is Rs. 3.00 - I do not have a track for approx 2500 KM. The cost per KM would have been in the 2.50 to 2.75 area had I stuck to PUC fueling stations instead of heading to Shell so often.

Hi Jayanth,
I've moved from Mobil Delvac MX to Shell Helix HX6.
I feel the shear stability of the Delvac MX isn't adequate for the 2.2 dicor.

I would recommend that you try the Shell, next time.

How much does it come to? Is this synthetic? The Shell India site says "Synthetic Technology" - not sure. It is listed as API - CH4, while the Delvac MX is CI4. How often do you change oils in the 2.2 monster?

API-CI4 is a later standard than API-CH4.

Jayanth you will find significant increase in performance and reduced engine noise between Delvac MX and Shell HX6.
If you want even better performance then Rimula R4 (the ash coloured one, mineral oil) is the way to go. This is CI4 as compared to CH4 of the HX6 and my verna is running on this now. It should cost you around 1300 bucks or so I think for 5 litres.
Here is the link. It is the last product on the list.

The rocket has been returning 13.xx the last couple of tank-fills. Something ought to be wrong! While I was suspicious about the fuel station, I was not convinced they are the cause.

Next stop - the air filter. The K&N has been in for about 6k KM now. Sure enough it was clogged a bit - I am glad it is also doing its job, and not just feeding air to the engine with low resistance along with all our dirt and muck! Here is what I dusted out of it before applying the cleaning spray:

Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-1.jpg

I am reminded of KPZen's rocket - this one has not sucked in as much muck, it has been running in-city 80% of the time where it is relatively dust free.

The filter is now left to dry overnight, am running on a brand new stock filter now. The stock filter definitely masks the Diesel clatter a bit.

The ph03n!x's Phoenix has now clocked...
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-2.jpg
... and am writing a short like-dislike review after all these times I have spent!

I Like - the engine. 'Nuf said!
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-3.jpg

I Like - Euro looks - still contemporary, though the Punto, Polo and the i20 has stolen the thunder.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-1.jpg

I Like - DIESEL written in the fuel cover's inner side as well as on the fuel cap.
I Like - Fuel cap tied down to the cover and a place holder to not have it dangling down while filling. No chance of forgetting the fuel cap!
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-2.jpg

I Like - The seating and space available in the front.
I Like - The dead pedal.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-5.jpg

I Like - The space in the back when the driver seat is pushed all the way back. An average Indian can comfortably sit without feeling cramped.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-6.jpg

I Like - The boot space. Good enough for a cabin luggage, and then some - in spite of a 12" woofer.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-7.jpg

I Like - cubby holes everywhere! Between the front seats for a 2 liter water bottle, a mobile phone, audio remote, two 1 liter bottles, and misc stuff. Under the steering, and door pockets too!
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-8.jpg

I Like - coin holder! No fumbling for change on tolls!
I Don't Like - Faux wood center console.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-9.jpg

I Like - illuminated dash. No need to turn on the cabin lights to pick something out of the dash during that night drive!
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-10.jpg

I Like - awesome grip from the S.Drives. They are due for a change soon.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-like-4.jpg

I Don't Like - No Rear Wash / Wipe! It's time all manufacturers make this compulsory on their hatchbacks - those who have driven long distance in rain would know what am saying.
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-back.jpg

I Like - The S.Drives holding up for 13,000 KM and more with this cut.
I Don't Like - The fact that it got cut!!!
Letz Getz Started (Hyundai Getz CRDi)- UPDATE: 40000, new alloys, tires!!! (page 30)-cut.jpg

Again, for the millionth time, I cannot help but wonder how Hyundai can kill a very good car like this when it beats the competition of its time in every area.

Not in every area Jayanth, BTW, the marketing trick is to kill a product to sell a newer one..

Jayanth- Love your likes, specially the engine, comfort and the space. There is no better hatch in these areas in India. The engine is so relaxed at speeds upto 160kmph that its a boon on the highways. There is so much space to keep stuff for long drives, that other cars (except Fiesta) feels inadequate.

Thanks for pointing out the coin holder. I was wondering what that thing was for. Doesnt the coins jump out on bad/uneven roads?

If the handling was at par with Swift/Punto/Polo (not that its very bad), then it would have been the most complete hatch in India.

Apart from the rear wash/wiper missing, I would have liked a defogger, option for ABS and better supportive seats

I knew this was coming, and that's thats why I said competition of its time - which was just Swift, and the only thing that's better in the Swift, perhaps, is the handling.

Not just the highways, I can stroll in bumper to bumper traffic in 1st or 2nd without touching the clutch or accelerating. The monster under the hood will make you feel like you are on an automatic!

Not once has that happened till now. - and I am talking crazy speeds. There was a time I flew over an unmarked speed breaker at 100!

Though the Punto is the star in handling, and the Polo and Swift are definitely better, I have absolutely no complaints about this one's handling either, after spending so much time, seeing so much road and speeds.

I know ABS is important, and I tried to get the car with it while paying H - but for me, the rear wash / wipe is more important. I struggled driving after rains, when the rear is wet and attracts all the mud in full glory. You have to depend on the ORVM, which is not the best option always coz I have stark dark sun film!!! And seats - there are work arounds, but I have not gotten there yet.

And hey, what is happening to your ride? Updates??

Absolutely true about driving in the rains. Hatches should compulsorily have the rear wiper.

My car is stuck at 21k. I haven't travelled much in the past 7-8 months, and I hardly drive it in the city.

It's bordering on blasphemy to contain 10 and 10 score 10 horses like that!!! You gotta drive at least for the sake of it

Mate, i enjoyed reading about your passion, thank you very much for sharing it in detail.I recall i was contemplating buying the getz crdi when i was in the market 2 years back and ended up buying a verna, but i totally agree , having driven the verna, having the same engine in the getz is going to be blast anyday.

I am also sorry for your loss.

All the very best ahead.

I will be looking the Shell way for the next change (3k to go), will call you up for the dealer coordinates then.

It is not just the stonker of an engine in the Getz, it is the gear ratio as well as the suspension. @Pras.Oct25 has a Verna D, and we concluded that the Getz D has a more sporty layout while the Verna is tuned more for comfort.
