Same dilemma in choosing between leather and fabric seat covers. If I see some options, I may decide. But I feel the leather will do justice to this car and interior. Let me know if you have any plan to go for shopping this weekend. I may join.

Has anybody booked the elite i20 in delhi? I have booked the sportz model with Koncept Hyundai, Green Park on 11th. They have promised to deliver the car before diwali.

Also they have agreed for insurance from outside but are not ready to drop the infamous handling charges. I have told them to give it to me in writing that handling charges are mandatory.

Whats the waiting in other parts of the country?

In Mumbai too it's around 4-8 weeks waiting. All bookings now will be delivered by Diwali.

I have planned to visit Jeewajee Set Covers in chennai to do the leather seats tomorrow. Looks like they have other branch in Chamiers Road (Nandanam) which is very close to me. Will order the seats tomorrow and have to wait 3-4 days to get it fitted in the car.

Has anyone felt the vibration on the driver door when you increase the audio volume with default bass settings? Its really annoying when you lean your leg on the door.

Default Hyundai Elite i20 : Official Review

Got the first service done yesterday, this morning I received a call from my dealer, he stated that there has been a recall for all Elite i20's.

Hyundai has sent a circular to all the dealers today, to check for the some particular wire harnesses, underbody inspection, engine bay check. Not sure whats going on, I am already at the dealer to get the same done.

Anyone else received any such call?

Please give more details about the said recall once your car is done. I plan to book the Elite i20 by next weekend. Would be anxious to know what this recall is exactly about.

Thanks

They took out the glove box cover and then removed the ECM, then they adjusted the harness, opened couple of screws from underneath and then they fixed everything back. I wasn't allowed to be near the car so not sure what all they did. I pressurized the mechanic to figure out what he actually did, but he also said check-up only, however I have a strong feeling that they have replaced some part somewhere.

Then came a device called G-Scan, to scan all the electricals. My key codes got reset, the fob was dead, again I am not sure why, it came back to life with some struggle, the security code/PIN for my fobs have changed. Now only one key is functional, the spare fob is useless till the time I take it for a reset too.

I am an absolute novice here, so just not sure what happened and why. Experts please advice.

Note :::: post this I am finding the car to be more rev happy, in all I have completed 1750kms.

Is PU same as art leather? Did you ask about any genuine leather options?

And will these be fitted over the existing seat fabric?

PU leather looks very close match to genuine leather and looks good. I was bit worried about the price of genuine leather.

Yes, it will be fitted over the existing seat.
