Default Continuous Engine Crank/ Driver's Side lock issue

The car started having two issues with alarming regularity

1. Continuous engine crank(without starting) when trying to start the engine with the Engine Start/Stop Button - This would happen randomly and without any visible or audible warning. To stop the continuous crank, I had to press the Start/Stop button again to stop the engine from continuously cranking. After this, If I tried re-starting the engine , it would start normally as if nothing was wrong.

2. Driver's side lock would automatically lock back when opened from the inside and won't let me open the door from the inside - Again, this would happen randomly. It was only after 4-5 attempts of trying to manually unlock the door from the inside by using the central locking button or the door lock lever, that it would let me unlock the door (Even using the remote to unlock the door from the inside won't unlock the door. It would unlock and lock itself again.)

I had to keep the car for a day at Advaith Hyundai, Kuntikana for them to check the issue. Our SA, Me Pradeep Kumar K, called me up the next that the car was ready.

For the Engine Start Stop issue, he said they they cleaned the Oil Control Valve and the issue should not recur. Three days have gone by, and the issue hasn't recurred.

For the Driver's side door lock issue, he said they they check the central locking & all door locks thoroughly and found nothing wrong. I have been asked to report it to them if it happens again.

The car was given a complimentary car wash.

Default Robbery Attempt!!!!

There seems to have been a robbery attempt made on the car.
On the morning of May 28, 2017, my dad had taken the car to his ancestral home in Baikampady and he had parked the car in a relatively secluded place. When the came back in the afternoon to drive the car back to home, he found the driver's door handle broken(stuck in the position shown below), the keyhole cover was lying on the ground. With the door handle stuck, the door could not be opened from the outside and he had to open the door from the inside.

Went to Advaith Hyundai the next day and met Mr Pradeep Kumar K, our regular SA. They were able to fix back the door handle and restored the door opening operation(using the door handle). Thankfully there was no damage to the request button on the door handle. But the keyhole cover was broken from the inside. They said they could temporarily fixed the cover using glue, but it could come off anytime. I asked them to order the part and to go ahead with fixing the cover using glue.

It took almost a week for the Cover to arrive and it was fixed this morning.
Part No: 82662B4040
Part Description: Cover-Front Door Outside Handle RH
Cost: Rs 671.70
Labour: Rs 86
Taxes: 110.39
Total: Rs 868.09

The broken keyhole cover(one can see dried glue inside):

Oh dear . That is so scary. Thank God the robbery attempt was unsuccessful and your car is safe though you did have to spend 800 odd bucks to get it back in original form.

I am just wondering if the attempt failed just because of the keyless entry technology on Grand i10 or something else. In other words, if it was a normal door handle without the keyless thing, would it have been riskier ?? Pardon my ignorance.

Default First Major accident!!

First Major accident!!
On February 16, 2018, the car(driven by me) met with an unfortunate accident when a Mahindra Bolero Pickup reversed without looking and hit the car. This stupid traffic policewoman had asked him to reverse straight into traffic. I was the unlucky one who was passing by at that time.

I stopped and the traffic policewoman came shouting at me and had the gall to blame me for the accident saying I should have stopped as teh pickup was reversing. I lost my temper and shouted at her saying I don't have eyes at the side of my head to see what stupidity she was asking the Pickup fellow to indulge in and there was no way I could have seen, judged or predicted what she was asking him to do. I told her had it been my mistake, the pickup should have hit the front part of the car, not the back side of the car. It was her mistake that she asked the pickup fellow to reverse into incoming traffic. Probably realizing her mistake, she quietly slipped away in the crowd and disappeared, washing her hands off the incident!!!

The pickup guy said sorry and said the crazy policewoman was shouting at him and banging on his bonnet to reverse the pickup quickly. I did not really feel like asking compensation from him and asked him to be careful next time. Drove straight to Advaith Hyundai's workshop in Baikampady and completed the insurance claim formalities. Damage included dents/scratches on the rear door and fender, deep scratches on the rear bumper.

Got the car back on Feb 21, 2018. No parts required replacment and all damages were repaired by denting/painting. Total bill was Rs 13,000 odd, out of which 7500 odd was born by the Insurance co and I had to pay 5800 odd(incl 1000 compulsory deductible & 2500 voluntary deductible).

Advaith Hyundai did a fairly good job in repairing the car...so much so that they almost able to correctly restore the badly dented curve right above the wheel. No paint mismatch or haziness either. Other than a little paint overspray in the wheel well, I feel they did a near perfect restoration job.
