Hardness can also be caused if the spring connected to the clutch assembly has some problem - so checkout on that front as well. Good luck.
Okay, I got my car checked at MGF yesterday - the problem was that the Hans Hyundai fellow did not know how to install a clutch cable - and would you believe, the SA at Hans was suggesting a complete gearbox overhall!! It took MGF about 15 minutes to remove the cable and properly fit it back in place. I later went for a TD with the SA and found the clutch absolutely smooth. Now I'm just praying and keeping my fingers crossed, that this time the problem has been rectified for good.

BTW, I was not charged anything - except ofcourse that I wasted my time and effort.

Another problem faced in my friend's i10 kappa is that it is impossible to downshift from 5th to 4th gear. The 4th gear would not get engaged while downshifting from 5th. While upshifting from 3rd to 4th, there is no problem. Is this normal in i10 kappa ?

Also, are the above 2 problems related to each other ?

Hi Rohan - Looks like there's a problem in your friend's kappa and also the 2 problems seem to be interlinked. I don't face any problem down shifting from 5th to 4th. How old is your friend's car, and has been facing the issue since Day 1 of purchase?

Great that the issue has been resolved to your satisfaction. However, it's a pity that authorized Hyundai workshops are messing up with basic work like setting up the clutch cable. Drive around a while to make sure that the problem does not return.

Came across this issue, not sure if it's a normal behavior or something is wrong. Occasionally, some odorless white vapors appear from a/c vents, have observed this when outside temperature is around 20 to 23 degree C. This has occurred couple of times, may be 3 ~ 4 times in last 3 months, and whenever it occurs I just switch to blower. Has anyone come across this problem in i10 or any other car's ? unfortunately, noticed this problem after my 3rd free service (no, I'm not indicating that something has gone wrong at service station). Any thoughts to this issue ?

It happens in every car - I have noticed this in my i10 and my uncle's wagon R. The reason is quick cooling (with the AC coils having just right moisture and temperature) and the 'odorless white vapor' is water vapor. Nothing is wrong - and no need to switch off AC .

I dont think there is anything to worry. As you said it only happens occasionally and would most likely be a function of outside temperature/cooling/humidity. Keep us posted if you either see it more frequently or feel any odor.

Thanks for the inputs blackasta and svaid , I can breath easy now. Will keep posted if I come across anything like this. But you know it's little annoying during monsoon, when I want to demist my windscreen or maintain optimum temperature inside the car to avoid fogging up. I guess the best way would be to reduce the blower speed when A/C is ON.

Cheers !!!

I do agree with @blackasta and @svaid, even i do get it like that in our CRDI Accent and again its occasionally. You do not have to worry about it, just reduce the AC for few minutes and then back on the desire speed after sometime, it would be normal.

Thanks rk_sans, now I'm more convinced that its normal and as underlinedby blackasta and svaid, it has to do more with the environmental factors like outside temperature,cooling, humidity etc . Thank you all once again and shall keep posted.

Cheers !!!

Observed the issue today. As suggested, reduced the blower speed for a while and continued, after 1 or 2 mins it was back to normal.

Cheers !!!

thanks for the link @milestone. i did went through that thread long ago and remember @achopraa had not put details about 1st paid service(or 4th service overall).
Anyhow i got the 1st paid service done. Costed Rs.2348, this included regular service, engine oil change, oil filter change and as per the SA, they check for brakes and one more thing(which i forgot). I will update that after checking the bill.

Default Mileage update!!

Hi all, i am again activating this thread

Well, my recent fuel economy figures have inspired me to update you all!

Age: 2 years and 3 months
Mileage: 17.5 Km
Petrol: Shell Normal

Fuel economy: 14.8 kmpl in city. About 60% AC. No highway drives.

I was stumped by this! From past two fills it has given a consistent 14.8-14.8 kmpl!! The quality of Shell could be the reason. For nearly two years the figure was hovering around 12.75 to 14.15kmpl. Now it is a good 14.8.
Another major contributing factor could be hardly any bumper to bumper drives! So, Kappa is good!! Wonder how much better Kappa2 will be!!

Default Re: i10 kappa sportz - 1 year/16K kms ownership report

@ipai,
That's an incredible mileage you are getting in bangalore. Which road do you take normally.
And also any other changes you did to improve the mileage?
However i drive, my mileage has never gone above 12, its permanently struck at 12 always.
