Default Re: My Hyundai Verna 4S CRDi 1.6 SX - Refinement, and some more!

Hello Friends i just need your take on whether one should get the Engine Oil changed after every 5000 km instead of Recommended 10,000 Km in Diesel Fluidic Verna ? Do you believe purely in the fact that it can enhance the Engine Life ? All Comments For and Against are Welcome .
Warm Regards

It primarily depends on the type of conditions you drive in. If it's too much B2B city traffic, it's better to get this replaced (assuming it's mineral oil). Some also follow a 7500 km interval.

For my Swift D, I always followed a 10K interval on mineral oil (my B2B city rides were not much) and was given a feedback that the internals were pristine even at 90K kms. 5000 may be a bit too early if but there are guys on the forum who pamper their rides this much.

I change it every 10000kms or 1 year. As per the manual, they recommend 10000Kms/1 year for normal conditions, and 5000Kms/6 months for severe use conditions - so I would go with that.

Though the manual doesn't mandate an oil change during the 1st free service - I did change the oil. team-bhp recommends an oil change during the 1st free service too. I've seen a noticeable improvement in refinement after that.

Thanks Bhpians, Replies to the Query Much appreciated. Actually what i had in my mind is linked to my previous Ownership. I had previously owned Accent CRDI 2003 Model of which i changed the Engine Rings at 1.25 Lac Km and Engine Overhaul at 1.70 Lac Km which to me was Early. so i just had in mind that if i Increase the Oil change Frequency from 10k to 5k may be i can prolong the Engine Life. Though i have read the manual it says 10k duration but that was the case for Accent Crdi too so had my apprehensions . Thanks

Hello Fellow readers just want an advice on the correct Tyre pressure for 2015 4s Fluidic Verna. The recommended Tyre pressure is 33 psi in all four tyres. But my concern is that I have upgraded my tyres to 205 55 R16 Michelin primacy 3st on stock alloys. Now I assume that the Tyre pressure is according to the load (weight) of the the car and change in the size of the Tyres should not affect the Manufacturer recommendation and I should carry on with 33 psi. But the problem is that if I keep 33 psi in all four tyres the ride becomes a bit hard and even small path holes are felt quite hard on the car but if the pressure is decreased to 32psi in all the tyres the ride becomes quite smooth and same path holes seem less intrusive. So please guide me as what is the correct Tyre pressure for 205 55 R16 Hyundai verna 2015 1.6 diesel, this confusion is eating up my mind every time I ride the car. Regards

That's not correct. Tyre contact area could change based on geometry and stiffness of the sidewall/rubber! So 33 psi may no longer be correct.

So @pearljam what you think the pressure should be in tyres now after upgrading to 205/55/R16? Thanks

My Verna 4S is now around 30 months old. Not too happy with the suspension noises ; nothing major but there are these irritating creaking noises while going over speed bumps or potholes. Have you guys changed the bushes on the lower arm as yet ?

My Verna is also around 30 months old. I changed my bushes last month under warranty. I was facing the same issue you mentioned, only in the morning, only for the first 10 minutes, and sometimes only when there were no passengers sitting in the front . I'm not sure if it's the lower arm, but 2 bushes were changed. Absolutely no creaking noises after that, and the car feels "tight" again on the humps.

Thanks. Exactly the same, either for the first 10 minutes or when I'm driving alone is when this is magnified. Btw, did you have an extended warranty, that covered this replacement.

Yes, so both bushes and labour were not charged. If you have warranty, don't ask whether bushes are covered, etc. Simply say that you want it changed under warranty. Since the bushes come under "wear and tear" category, they may try to resist.
