Default Re: Hyundai i10 Kappa2 : Test Drive & Review

Its time for my i10 to go for a replacement of engine oil and air filter. I call her my girl friend because what your girl friend will do is just empty your pockets and the same thing my cute little girl friend is doing by drinking huge amount of petrol and making my wallet thinner.. Also i have a couple of problems to be rectified like clutch reaction adjustment, humming / choking sounding at higher gears with lower rpm ie.., less than 2k. Reverse gear slot etc.

I went for my 10000 km "FREE" Service, and was charged INR 2100 for it.
Engine Oil 693
Oil Filter 74
Wheel Alignment 200
VAT 104
3M Engine Oil Additive 570
3M Fuel Additive 470

Are these costs genuine, and same across all Hyundai outlets?

This was almost the same that I paid for, during my I10's second service. The service advisors, however, informed me well in advance that the Engine Oil Additive and Fuel Additive were optional, but said that Hyundai strongly recommends these additives. Now, what role do these additives play in the well-being of the engine? Are they necessary (must-have) or desirable (nice-to-have) liquids for the engine? Would be glad if someone could throw more light on this.

The service engineer made me sign an agreement that I needed to buy those additives. Hyundai has a tie up with 3M, and they sell them as per MRP: I suspect discounts can be had in the open market. And how frequently is the fuel additive needed?
I have read often that petrol with additives such as HP Extra Premium, or the one from Indian Oil or Bharat, is no good at all, and normal fuel should be used.
But even Tata Motors tries to sell fuel additives during service, but they don't insist if you are not keen.
So what is the consensus on fuel additives?

Read somewhere on this forum (can't remember which thread) that it is advisable to press the clutch when starting the car, even if the car is in neutral. But I don't know the technical justification for this action.

All this while I used to press clutch and start the car, never knew there is any logic/technical justification behind this.

Cheers !!!

I remember reading here that it is to reduce the load on the battery and starter motor since, by pressing the clutch the engagement of the gearbox is removed. Google is also inconclusive...the most logical would be to prevent a jump in case the car is in gear.

I had today driven my i 10 for very short distance of 5 kms in the afternoon and once i came back i noticed some burning smell out of the radiator grill/mess. Is this reflecting the oil to be replaced soon?

My i10 1.2 Sportz (Nov,09) is behaving quiet badly these days, thanks to the excellent quality of the roads in Bangalore. Even if I go through a small hump, the whole car is swinging like a boat and the potholes are just even worse. I recently got the 4th service done and the wheel balancing/alignment is done as well.

I regularly maintain the tyre pressure as 33 PSI and the ODO is ~ 28k KMS. I am using the stock tyres itself.

Could this be a problem with the suspension that I need to get it checked? Or has it got anything to do with the wheel balancing or alignment.

Appreciate your suggestions/inputs.

Thanks,
Greg

I remember driving a '91 Toyota Corolla which won't even start if the clutch is not pressed. i10 does not have this design. Pressing the clutch is optional. It will prevent a jump-start in case you are in gear.

I remember the earlier Verna having this clutch lock system. You had to press the clutch and then only the car would start. Prevents accidental jump start and hitting something in front.

^^^ Same with the Getz. And like you mentioned, I believe the only benefit is not to accidentally bump anyone in front by cranking the engine while in gear.

My i10 Asta Kappa2 is consistently giving horrible FE figures of 7.5 kmpl (100% AC, 100% city drive). I have around 2500 km on odo and 2nd service is due next month. Shall I ask the service guys to reset the ECU?
