Hello everyone,

I have a 2014 Asta CRDI thats done about 30k. I noticed a peculiar issue with the air conditioning some time back but thought it was a one of issue. Now it seems to have come back. I had complained about this during the last service but they said that they had checked the AC and everything seems to work fine. The issue is that the AC works very well while driving in the city and I have absolutely no problem, but when i am on the highway on a hot day and especially when the car is above 100 km speed the air coming from the vents seems to reduce so much that the whole cabin gets hot after a few minutes. If i stop the car switch off and on the engine again the problem seems to go away but if the car goes above 100 + Kms speed the same AC problem comes back.

I know this is really weird but has anyone else had anything similar to this?

Thanks in advance

I have faced this too, though I didn't relate it to the speed. While I haven't had it fixed yet,I do believe its an issue arising out of a damaged thermistor, which doesn't let the AC assess ambient temperature properly.

Faced it on a long hot drive in hot weather. Had to resort to manually adjusting AC controls since climate control wasn't helping

Hello,

This issue had been reported by other t-bhp members (i came across this while going through the posts before buying my elite). Below are the posts. The second link does mention something about changing a thermistor. Kindly go through the posts. Hope you find a solution.

It's the thermistor. Get it replaced and it'll be back to normal.

Cheers!

Not sure if it is the thermistor.

I reported the problem to the service advisor and he said that the technicians had to check before he could comment. He asked me to leave the car for a couple of hours to fix this.

When I went to pick up the vehicle, I asked them if thermistor needed to be replaced. He replied in negative. Since he was attending to other customers he rushed in. I was not able to find out what went wrong.

I had this problem twice during the summer and since the fix, I have not used the car in really hot conditions. Guess I will not know if the technicians had fixed the problem until next summer.

I booked an Elite i20 Sportz yesterday, despite noticing some issues.

When taking the test drive, I noticed the brake issue which has been discussed in detail during the early days of the i20.

At lower speeds, the brake simply doesn't seem to work, its super tight, and there is zero braking force, until I take my foot off the brake and try to use it again. In my short 20-25 min test drive, I faced it 3 times, all times in speeds under 20-25kmph. At higher speeds, the brake seems to be fine.

According to the SA, he said the TD car is from the first generation of i20's, and it was fixed in newer models (i.e 2015 and up). Is it really fixed, or is he just bluffing me.

Another thing was the steering. I know the i20 has a light steering, but the response was just too lacking. It seemed to have a generous amount of dead zone from center. I currently drive a Sail UVA and Suzuki Ertiga, and their steerings seem far too stable and responsive. Again, the SA's response was lack of maintenance of their TD car and that it was tightened up in newer revisions.

I just wanted to ask recent i20 owners (2016/17 cars) if these issues still persist or not. Specially the brake, because in stop-start traffic it could be dangerous.

For reference, I am talking only about the Petrol version of the car.

Take a test drive on a later version from another dealer if the current dealer does not have one. The best opinion of whether the car is good or not, is always yours. You need to be comfortable with it.

I faced the same dead steering in my Test drive in May in a 2016 i20. I did not face the break issue though. Eventually I bought the Grand i10 and the steering in that is decent (both in TD and my car) and much better than the i20. Although the TD i10 was the face-lift version so a February 2017 model.

Hey! Well in my car it was the thermistor that had gone kaput and the issue has been rectified completely since the replacement. Also, as far as I remember, it was an hour's job for them to do it.

I had bought mine (Asta CRDi) in August 2015 and the car has done 41K kms till date, I've never faced any braking issue. Had to get the brake pads replaced at about 34K kms. though!

TD cars are usually abused to the core, both by the prospective customers as well as the employees themselves. Try taking a TD at multiple showrooms and it would give you a better idea.

Happy driving!

Hi,

Just brought my car elite i20 sportz petrol to Advaith Hyundai ORR for first paid service, the service advisor is quoting roughly 10k!

Engine oil and filter change
Wheel alignment and balancing
Emission test
Engine coolant
Brake oil
Rear drum cleaning
Injector cleaning
Battery check
Throttle body cleaning

This seems to be amazingly steep, how much did you guys spend at your first paid service?

Regards
Shailesh

Don't see an edit post option in the app, the SA was trying to push for engine decarbonisation, which I refused, I think this is the reason for the inflated bill!

You don't need-
1. Emission Test (Depending whether your car is 1 year old or not)
2. Engine Coolant. I guess HMIL recommends Coolant Replacement initially at 30000kms and then every 120000kms (IIRC). This is the interval for Diesel. Please check your Owners Manual.
3. Same goes for Brake Oil. HMIL recommends Replacement every 40000kms.
4. Rear Drum Cleaning. I don't think there must be such brake dust gathered during 10000kms of your running.
5. Injector Cleaning. Unless HMIL has recommended in Owners Manual.
6. Throttle Body Cleaning. Unless HMIL has recommended in Owners Manual.

Also don't get engine decarbonisation done at 10000kms.

There is indeed EDIT option available.
You have to select your post you want to Edit (within 30 mins timeframe) and you will see the "Pen" symbol on top right corner as shown below-

Just carry out the services recommended by HMIL in Owners Manual.
Nothing else is required.
What was checked during Battery Check? Specific Gravity and electrolyte level?
Is it not recommended to replace Gear Oil at 30000kms?

Sorry got confused the quote of Rs. 10K with your Odometer.
