Default Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Going by the revised prices in Pune, Hyundai seems to have increased the ex-showroom rates by 4% across the variants, the only exceptions being the 1.4L CRDI variants which see an increase of 2% as per the applicable slabs. This basically means they have absorbed some part of the GST increase. Not clear whether the applicable slab would have been 5% or 7% in case of Creta. The increase after cess is still lower than the discount they gave after GST became applicable. So its still marginally better than pre-GST days.

Hi guys
Needed some advice for getting floor mats for my new Creta
What ones would you recommend?
How are the 3D Kagu ones and what about their cheaper alternatives?

Anyone replaced the brake pads yet on the diesel creta! My car has run 21k km and steering wobbles while breaking on very high speeds. Is it the break pads! My SA told that I can run another 2k before break pad replacement. Any advise what's the ideal km range for break pad replacement, in normal driving conditions.

That sounds like warped discs than anything to do with the pads. A bit early to occur but just requires the disc to be evened out. Usually done in a lathe although dealer may insist on replacement. Also need to check why warping occurred in first place

Hello friends,

One of my office colleagues had purchased petrol creta around 6 months back. Last month, when the thundering rains hit mumbai, he offered to provide lift to another couple of colleagues from worli to Thane. However, as soon as he drove the car outside the office premises, there was waterlogging everywhere. The colleagues advised him to take the car back, but he said nothing will happen, I'll easily get you through. However, as he entered the waterlogging, immediately, the car stalled. He tried to start it again, but it didn't respond at all.

Finally, once the water reduced the next day, he towed the car to Hyundai dealer. There were so many other cars as well, affected by rains. Dealer took almost 2 weeks to revert to him. He suggested to replace the engine and many other parts for a whopping estimate of 6.5 lakhs. Dealer was against engine repairing, as that will not have the new car feel again, according to him. The insurance company has declined to honor the claim stating that, the owner tried to crank the engine in submerged condition, attributing the fault to the owner.

Now my colleague is really frustrated as he cannot even claim total loss and the dealer estimate is so much that he can buy another car in that amount. Is 6.5 lakhs estimate justifiable ? Is the dealer taking him for a ride ?In what ways, this amount can be minimised? Need suggestions from Hyundai owners on what can be done in this case.

Once car stops in water logged area, one should not try to run the engine.
Following options can be considered -
1. Get it repaired from outside garage. See if some expert can repair without opening the engine.
2. Park the car for some days & try to take car insurance rider - engine protect. Once got, get the car repaired under insurance claim.

1. What about the warranty impact if he goes to some external mechanic. Car is just 6 months old.

2. Does "engine protect" cover this situation where the driver has attempted to crank the engine in waterlogged condition. The current insurance surveyor already knows this now.

Can something be done by writing to Hyundai senior management directly ?

Looks like your friend is paying for his overconfidence! The way you phrased it - can't help but feel that he probably deserves it too.

Hyundai is not at fault here, and it would be unfair, but you can try qouting this court verdict to the dealers and ask them to push for insurance coverage.

Need to decide about warranty after having a discussion with outside garage. It will all depend on cost. ~6L v/s warranty.
Engine protect covers any damage to engine due to water logging. Insurance surveyor knows about it that why parking the car for some time, may be 3-4 months will be helpful till the surveyor forgets the case.
If insurance is from Govt controlled establishments like United India, New India etc, surveyor might help you with the ways of getting the claim. He will take his cut.

Can you check with your friend now, after turning the power, there is no response at all or there is some sort of engine sound (trying to start but fails)?

Hi All, Took the delivery of SX+ crdi, in white colour today.

I was planning to add some accessories (Led bulbs in head lamps and fog lamps, Leather wrapping of steering wheel, foot well lights, upgrading the stock speakers and may be an underseat sub woofer, window glass auto rewinding and ovrm auto closing modules etc.), but the sales person advised against most of them according to him, if I get any of the above installed locally there are chances that, the service center can void the warranty.

Congratulations Sir on the car. Looks great in white colour.

I don't know when I'll get my 1.6L SX(O).

Regarding accessories, I had enquired at the dealership for list and they were offering the following themselves:

1. Auto ORVM folding relay - ₹6000
2. Side step - ₹12,000 to ₹16,000
3. Vague looking bull-bars - Didn't ask for price.

And a couple more items. I didn't enquire further since the costs they were quoting were double the market price.

Apart from 1, why would you even think of the other two? Side step for a creta, is pointless. Buulbar would be horrific on this car unless some abs variety.

You've mistaken me buddy. I am not buying any accessory at all. I only enquired what all was available..

I hate the bull bar anyway.

Took delivery of our Passion Red Creta 1.6 E+ last evening.

Hyundai Creta : Official Review-20170921_174011-large.jpg

Quick initial impressions:
  • The red passion shade is already growing on me, the blackened A & B pillars enhances the effect further.
  • The interior plastics quality is somewhere in between our first generation Verna Fluidic and last generation I10.
  • The Hyundai petrol cars seem to have a slightly loud exhaust, almost makes you believe its leaking. I had the same thoughts when we took delivery of the I10 in 2012, and its still the same.
  • Gearshift is extremely notchy, hopefully the gates will even out over a the next few months.
  • Ride quality is nicely supply, perfect for the city use we are going to be using the Creta for.
  • Relatively large 55 litre capacity fuel tank had me pay the highest fuel bill for a single fill till date.
  • The E+ trim in petrol gets all the useful stuff from the higher segment while the diesel version gets sub par treatment missing out on the nice to have stuff, roof rails, touchscreen HU, front component speakers, steering controls are what quickly come to mind.
  • The 5" touchscreen system coupled with stock speakers has good sound quality for most average music enthusiast.
  • The Creta with those 16" steel wheels just about manages to look a size larger than large hatchbacks, something to fix in the coming days
