Phoenix - the car was switched off when I took the pics .

I do a full tank whenever the level goes below 1/4 and I have to travel something like 100 kms. If in city driving, I will fill fuel as soon as reserve light comes in (within 5-8 kms).

My upshifts is highly dependent on whether I'm driving in city/highway. Generally I don't rev beyond 3500 rpm even on highway and in city I make sure I downshift at around 1500-1700 rpm.

Ah! I didnt notice the tacho reading 0

But still, never let the fuel fall below the 1/4th mark. I might be too cautious, but then this rocket is not going to be covered by an extended warranty, and two years is not a long time!!!

Point noted Phoenix. Its a bit weird that Hyundai doesn't give extended warranty on its diesels. Seems like they are not confident on their product and they expect major problems coming up after 2 yrs.

Just hope its a nightmare and not a reality.

OT: But, aint they giving an Extended Warranty on any of their current Diesels? i20 CRDi / Verna CRDi / Sonata CRDi???

I was told that it is not available for the Getz CRDi because the car is out of production!

Verna crdi has 3rd year extended warranty available and not the 5 year one like the petrol counterpart.
Nirmal, at kun hyundai told me that 5 year plan is not given for the diesel because the fact is that the spares are rather expensive and also because of the high mileage the diesels cover.
We didnt pick up the extended warranty during purchase (for whatever stupid reason) and now I will have to shell out more when I get it done for the 3rd year.

@krish - on the contrary, there are a lot of hyundai diesels that have covered tonnes of km and are running trouble free. Barring a few cases of premature issues I havent heard of anything untoward. Also must remember, that most of the verna and getz crdi owners are crazy and push their car to the limits with the kind of power output it generates. So if the extra care is not taken to maintain the car, then yes, it will have issues.

Well.. the warranty is always on mileage/year basis.. like 2 yrs and 50000 kms. So the argument based on high mileage doesn't really work out. I would appreciate it if they give a 4yr or 75000 kms warranty.

Agree with you on maintainence, but how much can people thrash a car. There are always circumstances that aren't covered under warranty and service people are good at finding them out. Still, it would have given Peace of Mind, if they had given extended warranty. Even TATA gives a 4 yrs/1,50,000 warranty or so I think.

By the way, are any of you planning to go to the tracks on 7th March? I might come, though just for watching and maybe a ride as a passenger.

One more timepass pic of my car.

Rocket Hatch - Dark Grey GETZ CRDI. EDIT: 1 yr, 15k kms + report.-getz.jpg

I'm now seriously considering alloys for my car keeping in mind my next tyre upgrade as well which will most probably be an upsize from 185/65 that I'm currently running though the radius will remain 14".

I need to start saving for alloys and need tips on which alloys will be best with approx cost. HELP!!!

Krish.... very simple for you.

A good set of 14" alloys and Advan Neovas! You need it.

14" are what I'm looking for. I want a comfortable ride as well!! I certainly will not be moving onto 15" or more.

Its mostly for highway drives with wife and sometimes some more members of family and so comfort is topmost priority.
Will try out advans or something similar when the current set wears out (which I hope happens fast).

Unfortunately I do not know any alloy brands and will have to start search for that. Need suggestions on brand and sites if possible.

Phoenix- I checked your alloys in your thread. They are exactly the style I'm looking for but in 14". Going through your thread again for more info.

Long time since I updated my thread - Hold on, am compiling a few pics - expect an update later this week!

My whole package cost me about 27k, after exchanging the new stock tires @ about 200 KM on the clock. I got five alloys 15" x 6J & four 195/55 R15 S.Drives, and retained the stock spare rim and tire. Like I said the only qualm is a hard ride - but the highway handling is a blast (ya, it is no Neova, but for its price S.Drive has quite a bite!)

And my next change will be a 195/50/R15 A.Drive or XM1+ (or similar soft tires) - enough of the adrenaline rushing speeds - I need some comfort next time around )

Hey guys, can someone please give me some real earth figures?
I am not very well informed about the stats on the getz crdi.
I have a few very simple questions, what is the top speed of the getz crdi?
And what is the mileage you can expect from this vehicle?
If i drive on the highways at speeds of 100-120kmph what mileage will it give?
And does this engine require any special fuels, and whats the weak link (mechanically speaking, if any) in this stunning package?

Thanks.
