Default re: My Beige Boy - Hyundai i20 ASTA CRDi. UPDATE : 35k kms & RaceDynamics DieselTRONIC

The engine warranty will not be void just because you didnt use the oil the service centre mentioned. If the engine oil you used is within the recommended limits by the company, there is nothing to worry.

Also you will would have had the oil filter changed along with engine oil and you also have the engine oil bill. That is more than enough to prove that you've changed engine oil during service.

Also engine issues are very very rare these days. So.. Enjoy your CRDi in Peace

Default Hard gear shift in my Diesel I20

Hi team,we own a I20 asta diesel six speed. The car has done 15k kms til now .Lately I am facing notchy gear shifts on my car. Let me explain the problem.

The car is in neutral and engine is running.When I depress the clutch fully and slot into first gear , it does not slot smoothly as it used to before. It appears as if some hindrance is over come and then it slots completely. Further more with the clutch fully depressed if I come back to neutral and again slot into first it slots like a butter through knife. This is happening in all gears.


The car is with service center and they are not able to Diagnose it as usual. Finally they said its like the same in all 6 speed cars. Just to push off the problem. Since they are incompetent to solve this simple problem I request the knowledgeable persons over here to help me find the root cause of the problem and solve it as soon as possible. They are saying to deliver the car this week end.so I hope to get a solution before it. Thanks in advance

Some problem with gearshift alignment, if there is such a thing with the floor shifts of today. It was a common problem with old ambys and fiats with gear shift levers on steering column.

I faced the same problem with i20 Asta petrol. My car clocked only 1000+ kms before first service and I reported the very same problem during 1st service.

The hindrance is very light and you got to observe it very keenly, otherwise, it will look as if the gear slots properly.

I patiently demostrated the problem to the engineer and he understood what i meant. After which he lubricated the gear shifts and then its okay now.

Ask the service centre guys to try it and hopefully it should be okay, if there is no other problem.

Hi sagarpadaki, I stay in Bangalore and am planning to buy i20 Magna (Dsl) from Advaith Hyundai either this month or early next month. What would you say about the vehicle? Is it worth Rs.7.5 lakhs? I have received mixed reviews about this car. I am highly confused. Could you please offer a suggestion.

Ravi, Sagar, even i have the same 1st gear problem. It is very irritating when the signal turns green and you are in a hurry to get away and the 1st shift is just not satisfying. I showed it during the 2nd service but they were unable to do anything.

I too have noticed this in my Getz while shifting to 2nd/3rd gear at the beginning of a drive. Its comes closer to servicing time and always vanishes after service. I haven't complained to the Hyundai A.S.S as yet as it was never a major hindrance.

Hhmmm. Yes I will. I would be trying out a different service center next time. And one more thing. Its about the steering rattling. What exactly does it sound like? Whenever i am on rough roads I here this "clattering" noise. It is not a rattling noise nor is it very loud. I hardly hear it if the music is on.

Thanks sagarpadaki. I have been hearing a lot about steering noise and low AC. But as you have said, my heart beats for i20 despite its problems. So would go for it

Even i get this clattering noise.But even i have not heard the exact "Rattle" to compare whether what i am hearing is indeed rattle!.So i have assumed this is the Rattle. Yea even i dont hear it if the music is on!

For me the mental picture of rattle is two loose metal objects hitting each other.But the current sound i am getting does not match to that mental picture i have.So probably i have to take a TD of car which indeed has bad rattles to compare

AC is sufficient for bangalore weather. Other than that there are not much issues.You will love the engine for sure! I bet it!

Hello all. I took the delivery of my brand new i20 CRDI ASTA 6 speed manual yesterday. Want to share my happiness with TBHP family and also pen down my thoughts and feelings. So here I go. Fasten your seat belts!

Why new car?

We owned a 2003 Santro Xing XS. Wonderful car. Very good value for money. Served us faithfully without a hitch in its 6 and half years of spirited service. While it is simply awesome within the city, it was a bit of let down on the highways. Didnít feel so confident cruising at 100 kmph on highways and cornering at 80 plus speeds on highways. At the start of 2010 my father started to think about buying a new car. Our budget was around 7.5 lakhs and it had to be a hatch (Parking constraints in my house).So the hunt started for a car that could replace our faithful santro.And it had to be a diesel.


What car?

As usual when ever a hunt for new car starts confusions and dilemmas start h(a)unting us. We were also no exception. Started reading reviews on TBHP and was hooked to it day and night. The contenders were

I20
Swift DDIS
Punto
Polo
Figo

First took the test drive of Figo diesel. Felt very comfy. The seat fabric is very good (might I say best in the class?).The engine is peppy. Took it on a spin on kanakpura road in Bangalore. Was impressed by the in-city ride. But somehow on highway felt it underpowered. May be because the test car had just around 1000 kms on the ODO and hadnít opened up well. But still. My mother didnít like the ingress and egress. Also the rear leg room felt cramped. So out went Figo.

Next we took the test drive of Punto. Felt good. But the Interiors looked cheap and the fit and finish was not satisfactory. The car handling is awesome. Felt very stable at high speeds. However again the rear bench was a let down. Also my father was a bit skeptical about the TATA FIAT service. That was the main reason for us to drop Punto.

Swift. Didnít take any test drive. The looks felt outdated. I personally didnít like the swift looks. So the swift goes too.

Polo. Very good car. But the waiting period of 5 months put us off. Curtains down for polo too.

Then we took the i20 CRDI test drive. And boy, it blew us off. The interiors are a class apart and will put the sub 10 lakh sedans to shame. Interiors are very airy and the view at front is very good. The fit and finish is just top notch. The engine felt really good and refined compared to Figo and Punto. Just loved the turbo punch above 2k RPM. The rear leg space is also very good. The height adjustable seat, the center console, electrically foldable mirrors and flip keys were liked very much by my father. I too was smitten by its looks .It got a 5* from my mother too. So finally the i20 was selected to be our new hatch.



Dealership experiences

We did all our interactions with BLUE Hyundai showroom, Bangalore. The experience was not anything great to talk about. Just average. The sales advisor (SA) was totally unknowledgeable and didnít know anything except the basics of the car. But she promptly arranged test drives for us. The OTR came to 8.48 lakh for the ASTA model so we had to stretch out budget. Our good old Santro went for 1.95 lakhs. Is it a good price for a very well maintained 6.5 year old Santro? Now started the color dilemma. I wanted the dark metallic grey, my father wanted berry red but mother was bent upon silky beige. According to her it gives the car a classy and executive look and she was right too. So we booked it in the silky beige color. I think i am one of the very few people having the beige color on i20.We booked the car on 16th may .Didnít get much freebies except the standard mud flaps, mats, idol, perfume. The dealer promised delivery in two weeks. But due to strikes in the factory and maintenance shutdown the delivery got delayed and finally our car arrived on 24th to the dealer. Did a quick PDI and were told it will be ready with registration in 2 days. Went to the dealer yesterday evening armed the TBHP PDI. Everything went alright. Then it was Lights, camera, action! Later we drove home.





Short drive


We took the beige boy on a spin today on Mysore road, road, NICE road and Kanakapura road. The 6th gear is a boon for highways. It hits 110 kmph at 2K RPM. Just the beginning of the turbo sweet spot. Tap the accelerator and u will feel as if the engine has got a shot of adrenaline and it lunges forward like a untamed bull. I was grinning from ear to ear. Could manage 130 kmph on NICE road. The gear shift indicator is pretty accurate and will tell you when to shift up or down based on the load and RPM. The steering is light at slow speeds but weighs up pretty well at high speeds. The rear ride is a bit bumpy but nevertheless comfortable. It tackles the bumps pretty well. And ah the ABS with EBD and 4 discs are awesome. Wanted to test their working and hit the brakes hard at 50 kmph on the exit of NICE road after making sure no one is behind. The ABS kicked in, I felt the brake pedal pulse and modulate the pressure to prevent the wheels from locking. And it stopped in a straight line. Thumbs up for braking.

Havenít had the opportunities to test the controversial AC yet. Will do it soon.Here are the pics.Will be posting few more interior pics soon. If you want any pic in particular let me know.

Congrats, i20 is surely one of the best hatchbacks available in india, you have got a great color as well, i have test drove it once and the turbo kick is simply awesome.....!!
cheers

Yes. Even I want to test drive a car which has the rattle. As per SA he did not want to acknowledge that this sound is actually the rattling noise which i20 is known for.
