If its belching out white smoke and not black, kindly get your vehicle checked asap. If not your going to have to bear with more than just a blown headgasket.

rippergeo - Great mileage figures.
thanks man! but I dont think I can sustain mileage driving. its too boring. but, it has been a great learning experience(driving slowly) and I plan to put things i've learned into practice just a little so that I can get atleast 18kmpl on the highway.

maruti cars get special treatment. they get an extra 2 secs to get out of the way. swift-alto bhai-bhai

did get it checked. see a few pages back. it was a dirty and wet air filter! problem solved.
but would like to know, how much damage can a dirty filter cause other than dropped mileage, greater carbon deposits and more pollution?
can it cause catastrophic engine damage? would the techies please help?


@sameel- you are priceless!!!! you youself drive at 220kmph in a verna and ask me to slow down when I'm doing 120kmph in a pete'd swift? ROFLMAO.
when are you back in cochin?

Water entering the engine could spell disasters for the engine. Also dirt particles entering (and if sufficiently big) are capable of damaging the engine as well.

yes, these are some of the inherent traits of the verna.

Default Comaprison between the VDI and the CRDI

this was a reply that i'd given to a PM. didnt see the sense in starting a new thread for it, so just posted it here.
anyway, its a comparison between two cars from totally different segments. wouldnt be fair to start a thread on it.

Sorry mods if its going off topic. feel free to delete it if necessary

Service intervals are same for both -10,000kms.
I think the verna costs around 2000-3000rs per service, which includes oil, oil filter, air filter, checkups, wash etc.

verna needs 4.5 litres of oil(IIRC). swift 3.1
filters are slightly more expensive in the verna, I think.

I find it difficult to compare service costs because, the verna is dad's and it gets standard treatment.

swift is my car, and I get it serviced every 5000kms. purely voluntary. I'm by its side all the time, even when its being washed, and I provide all the parts and materials myself, so usually pay only labour charges at the MASS, which is like 200-300Rs(Note-Air filter is Green, which is cleaned for me free of charge by peter)
oil-semisynthetic- 600rs for 3litres
oil filter 390Rs(changed every 10,000k)
air filter stock- 299/350 or something- best changed every 5000kms

labour charges at the local MASS is usually negligble.

swift is very economical to maintain, and I find it easy to do so. have not reqd any major parts till now.

I'm sure the verna can be just as economical, if its done the way i do with the swift.


performance-
verna will thrash the stock swift hollow. in a straight line. that will make up for perceived cornering disadvantages.
eg- cochin Thodupuzha in sport mode(driver)
almost entirely twists and turns.
swift- 1 hour 10 mins
verna- 45 mins
and my passengers felt waaaay more comfortable/safer in the verna.
the driver(me) felt less comfortable in the verna

the verna will take corners well.
if you look down at the speedo- you will be frequently surprised to see you're doing 20kmph higher than a similar corner in the swift.

it just doesnt feel as nice as the swift while turning thats all.

braking in the verna is waaaaay better than a swift- even if a VDI ABS is compared.

the pete'd swift just about keeps up with the verna. but will never be faster than the verna.

verna is more refined and the engined much more relaxed during high revs. this is, the ultimate petrol car substitute. no doubt.

economy
normal driving-Swift- 18kmpl
verna- 17kmpl

driving for mileage-S- 23kmpl
V-23kmpl

ripping S 14kmpl
V-10-12kmpl

the swift wins out in
1.being much more fun to drive
2.slightly cheaper to maintain
3.slight edge in FE
4.easier and more fun to drive slowly(verna is jerky in the city till you learn to modulate the throttle)

verna is
1.far more practical
2.much faster
3.much safer
4.built much better

verna is the clear winner
but i love the swift, and I just cant drive any other car now.

EDIT- smae post has been put up on this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...tml#post848716 (Hyundai Verna CRDI (SXI) with ABS)

Nice comparison, ripper.
Which do you feel is more comfortable to ride in its stock form? ( ability to absorb bumps, etc )
Which one would you prefer for long drives?
