Default Re: Hyundai i10 Kappa2 : Test Drive & Review

I am posting a query (friend's) regarding his i10 CNG. He owns a 2009 Hyundai i10 - Kappa series which he converted to CNG with conventional kit. Now he is not satisfied with performance and fuel efficiency while switching to petrol. Has any one using CNG fitted Hyundai i10 here..?

My i10's service bill came to ~6000/- which included suspicious things like:
1. Engine bay lacquering - INR 520+labour
2. Bardhal engine oil additive - INR 358+labour
3. Bardhal engine oil flush - INR358+labour
4. A/C vent cleaning (SA said he will be changing some foam) - INR 372+labour

I have a suspicion that none of the above are actually required and that i have been so smoothly conned. Experts, pls confirm.

Also, the broken rear wiper arm assembly replacement cost INR 786+labour (only arm was replaced, existing wiper blade was re-used). I was in tears.

Sounds like smoke & magic to me. Except the wiper arm - did you authorize any of the other 4? None of them are required IMO.

Is the i-10 seat recline lever located on the inboard side for all versions?

I recently went to get a arm rest fitted and it was fouling with the lever...so had to drop the idea

All the 4 items mentioned are hogwash. The fourth item can be done if you have complained of foul smell / ineffectiveness of A/C fan.

Which service was done? As per the SA at my place, ~INR 8000 is Hyundai's standard service cost for the 30000 km service!

^Thanks guys for confirming i was indeed robbed.

To the SA's credit, i was told of all these beforehand and was given a remarkably accurate 'estimate'.

This was my second paid service in the 3rd year of ownership.

Set tripmeter to 0 when LFI comes up, fuel up x litres, drive till next LFI, divide tripmeter reading by x to get FE. I think this could be a easier way to calculate FE than the conventional methods.
I follow the same method; and i constantly get 13.5-14 kmpl. Sometimes, i have noticed that this indicator tends to come off a bit early but the margin of error is only around 2-3 km which hardly impacts the mileage calculation.

How does one switch on the electrically heated outside mirrors in the kappa2 sportz variant? the manual is of no help.

From when did the i10 started coming with heated outside mirrors?

I am hearing this for first time.

The kappa2 sportz variant indeed came with heated OVRMS back in 2011 when I bought the Magna 1.2 variant. I'm not sure if that feature is still available with sportz or not.

Surprised eh? So was I when i accidentally browsed the brochure and found it, AFTER owning the car for 3 years now and driving thru many rains wishing the mirrors wouldn't be so full of water drops. Gosh, this feature was present on my car all along!!! <sheepish grin>

Now if only someone could kindly help me along on how to use the thing.

I still am surprised, didn't at all knew that, i10 comes with such feature. Isn't there any mention of same, in user manual, to make it work?

I believe I have read somewhere that the heated mirrors are turned on while you turn on the rear defoggers. I may be wrong.

Folks,

What is the recommended interval for engine decarbonization in i10? I got the first one at around 30k on the ODO and now its at 54k and the SA recommended it for every 20k KMS?

I have a feeling this is not needed, but I asked him to go ahead with it.

Cheers,
Greg
