So finally after a good couple years of going back and forth they agreed to buy the vehicle back at something above 4 lakh and provide an additional 50k discount on a new vehicle.
...
God Speed!
Thanks for updating all of us!

Even though the problem remains unsolved, at least it is off your hands now. Good to know Hyundai/dealer taking action to resolve customer complaint, even if they took their sweet time in doing it (I am sure that "years" is a typo. if not,!!!

Thank you for your help!
The mystery continues. Do we have some scientific, make that really scientific, ( most of our members are scientific.) people here who can analyze the samples available versus other cars.

This should be escalated to Hyundai for further study, although I doubt they will bother with just one car issue. If this crops up in other cars and other models, only then will a study be undertaken by the Automaker. ( they think practical and commissioning a study on sample of one car does not make financial sense)

Just glad that your suffering is over. Still, it would be prudent for your friend and his family to go for regular medical checks, just to make sure they don't suffer from any long term ill effects of using the car. (God Forbid!)

At least searching for 'orange interiors i10' doesn't leave you in the middle of nowhere anymore!
Maruti treats their customers so well, and it is mindnumbing to see no other automaker learning from that and emulating Maruti. Perhaps that is why Maruti continues to build market share in India. They really have their finger on the pulse of the market here.

I am sure the dealer would not have taken the entire hit on the car, but roped in Hyundai to take some of the loss. Else, like you rightly pointed out, another unsuspecting customer will get the "H promise" promise for headaches and complaints. That would really suck for some unsuspecting customer....

I am an Orthodontist by profession but do know a smite of medical stuff. Get your family's organs checked (especially your testicles) that produce the male androgen hormone if they have been exposed for some length of time. Do also check the vital capacity readings of your lungs along with a treadmill test. Yeah even females produce the male androgen, TESTOSTERONE in the ovaries and adrenal glands and this is what perks them up 4 to 12 days before menses or about the time ovulation is occurring and they are at their receptive best.

Your doctor could advice you better as this is no laughing matter. Have you ever filled your AC gas at an unauthorized mechanic? They use a Chinese concoction that is very bad for health in the event of a slow leak. A fire with R32 refrigerant in your home AC will slowly but surely kill your health in about 2 months time. Internal organ damage is a certainty in about 3 weeks. Do not try to put out a fire where the AC has R32 refrigerant. Get out of your house and switch of the mains. Do inform the fire tenders that it is R32 gas in the AC since they unwittingly will be signing their warrant for severe ill health if they are without gas masks.

I am just thinking the logical steps here. Nothing to argue about. Please pardon my ignorance.

What is the next step after getting the organs tested, if found impacted? Do we have Medicines to nullify the impact?

I understand that the organs will get impacted within 2 months. But, from the post and links, this issue is running since almost 2 years and all family members are safe so far. So, if the organs were impacted, would it not have shown the results by now already?

When the root cause for the issue is still a mystery (Assuming, genuine attempts were made by Dealer and Hyundai to find the cause) How can we attribute the cause of impact on Organs on the car and Mystery Orange color, even in case the organs are reported to be impacted by the tests, without knowing the cause?

I respect your approach, but, in my view, these tests will only help in checking whether organs are in good health or not. but, does not help any further OR does not relate to this case.

The help of an Endocrine specialist of any major hospital should suffice. It is probable that this issue has not affected your family and thank GOD for that. Get the check up done though.
