Default First Issue - 45K on the ODO - Airbag spring assembly issue

Team - I had my first issue with the car after 3 1/2 years and 45K km's on the ODO. I went through a puddle rather carelessly, ended up with a instrumentation cluster light come up - airbag sensor issue, problem was diagnosed to a replacement of a clock spring. Total cost to fix the issue, 1700 rupees, i am told this is a pretty common problem in I20 to have.

Failed Part.

Same happened with me in Fluidic Verna CRDi. I think this is common in Hyundai cars but it was priced less for Verna. MRP was 1528.

Hello. I have a 2012 i20 Asta crdi which has clocked 74000 km. I had the clock sping issue twice till now and one thing i have noticed is that the price of spare varies from one service centre to another.

Have you guys faced issue with the steering rack?

There is in general confusion around the GST right now, so i will give them the benefit of doubt.

What steering rack issue are you talking about, could you please help explain more. Thanks - The reason i ask, i started feeling the steering is a little bit tight in comparison to pre error days. Could very well be me over thinking. Thanks

Hello Motoringlover. The steering rack issue was widely reported by i20 owners. There is a sound from the steering when you go over potholes or turn your steering at standstill.

I have been cheated by Mithila Hyundai. They never changed the steering rack of my car even though I had made the complaint at every free service. Recently I asked them to provide me complete service history of my car and I realised that I have been taken on a ride all along.

Default 45K Service.

Hi All - Quick update on the 45K service, car went to Trident Hyundai in Bangalore, Service included the usual change of Oil (Which i buy separately Mobil1 -0W-40 - 5 Litres), Oil & Air Filter. I was recommended to change A/C Filter as well, this service included an exception of another set of Brake pads for the front. I do admit the car has been driven in heavy Bangalore traffic daily almost ~50kms, so was an exception. Overall no complaints love the car.

..

Thanks
Hi Motoringlover,

Informative thread. If I may ask, why did you move from 5w-40 to 0w-40? Our climate is a pretty tropical one and the w rating should not affect the oil, as the w(inter) rating is for near freezing temperatures.

Is there any other reason you went for the 0w-40 oil?

Actually not a very scientific reason, I had an extra bottle of 0w-40 with me from a previous service, I found both 5w-40 and 0w-40 pretty good. So just ordered another 4L refill pack.

Now this could very well be my own feeling, I felt the Jetta (my other car) was a lot smoother with Motul, I will be moving to Motul for i20 as well in the next service.

Oh cool. Ya even my tuner recommended Motul 8100 x cess for my GT TSI. Seems to work well with VAG cars. Do you use your own oil in VAG? Are the service centers ok with it ?
