The lugging sound is back. Steep slope with A/C, 20 kmph and accelerating. Don't know if there is a permanent fix to this

The procedure hardly took 5 min. Done through the OBD2 port. Also finished my second servicing (3.2K, 6 months) ~ Rs.1000 for engine oil change + filter. Also put in 3M underbody coating for Rs. 2.8K (5 yr warranty). The job was well done.

The rattling noise is completely gone. I feel the gear changes have become smoother too. However, with the A/C switched on, the engine revs at a slightly higher idle RPM. Apparently, this is a fix for the engine to work with lower octane.

All in all, a nice A.S.S. experience. Just wish Hyundai had been proactive about this instead of leaving it to owners to discover.

At least the FE of my AT has become stable at around 12-13 kmpl. Thanks to longs runs open roads. Initially it used to be around 9-10. And that was in real bumper to bumper traffic.

@d_himan - We discussed about this the last time you were searching for a solution. In my case too, the sound re-surfaced after a few months of ECM upgrade. But I have sold it now.

I remember the Technical Advisor at the dealership informing me about some upgrades that had been released in the last few months. Why dont you check with your service staff and get it patched up?

oh, recurred for you too? Yes, will need to flash it once again. The problem is only the HMP dealer is doing it here in Mumbai - real pain to take time out and for a 50km one way drive - my wife uses the car.

What a pain! Especially when the rest of the car is performing flawlessly.

I just booked my Sportz AT. Has your problem sorted after the ECM flash.? I am a little worried since everybody seems to have this knocking problem in their AT.

My other car is a honda city ivtec AT which does not seem to have any issues.

The only reason i dint go for the brio AT is because of the long waiting period.

Yes, back to normal after the ECM flash. Don't know if it will come back again after 9-10 months like it did the last time 'round.

My other car is an Accord AT and it doesn't have any issues too.

Known issue - HMIL issued a TSB for the same. Knocking/lugging sound at 30-40kmph on a slope.

Today I gave my i10 for service at Trident Hyundai, Kalyan Nagar. Before the SA even started off, I told him I have a Grand Vitara whose service bill is always smaller than i10 service bill.

He got the message and didn't recommend any optional service. Got the wheels balanced, rotated and aligned for the first time. Still, bill exceeded 6K.

But I am happy with the service though. It came back with a pristine feel.

We are considering an i10 AT. It will be my wife's errand car. So the running won't exceed more than 3-4K per annum. Based on your expererince so far, would you recommend i10 AT?

Thanks

You should rather consider the Grand i10 AT today.

Its better than the i10 in almost every aspect.

I have been having the Gen 1 i10 AT for more than 4 years. Works like a charm. Odo just around 20K. The Grand I10 would definitely be a better choice. But in case there are budget concerns i10 AT is surely good. That only thing that goes against it is the bumpy ride (which has been fixed to quite an extent in the Grand I10)

Well, my car is about complete 3 years in next 3 months. So far it has done 12k. It is a great errand car, but it has had it's share of niggles. Do compare with other AT cars in the segment. When I purchased it, the A-Star was the only competition.

Thank you. I should have seen that also. Will do some more reading and take a test drive.

The max number of users in her present A Star have been 4. Otherwise its mostly single or 2 folks in it. Its not seen a highway also. Chances are the use of i10 AT won't be any different. I am going to check it out also.

Thank you. Would you say after your share of niggles would be a deal breaker or was the service good enough and they were able to sort matters within a customer satisfying time frame. I am aware of the ECM issue in your reports. In the segment we don't like the Brio. The Desire has a AT but we are not looking for a car with boot. Won't be used. What are the other options in the same price band?
