To cut a long story short- I booked an automatic shortly after launch, on 24th of July (I understand some of you may have booked it months ago ) and I have not even been given a tentative delivery "month"; let alone a date or week by my dealer.

What I want to ask you enthusiasts is- is this normal? Is this the way it happens? Every time I ask them to give me a tentative week, they just somehow talk their way out of it. I completely understand there is a long wait, but all I need is a definite week when it will be delivered. Am I asking for too much?
!
Mate, I am in the same boat here in Hyderabad, in fact I booked much before the launch, automatic variant. I still don't have eta, a vague statement 3-6 months. The showroom guys were candid in acknowledging that if i had some connections in Hyundai things could be done faster, Which I don't. But on the brighter side, this GST thing could be worth the wait for folks in Hyderabad and Bangalore where road taxes are crazy high, and now it seems winter session it may get passed.

This is Trident Hyundai- Old Airport Road Branch. The branch is headed by a guy named Roshan Sheka who promised me a definite date when it will be delivered in the first week of August, but no timeline is given now whenever I call up.

Even of gst gets passed in the winter session, at least half of all the states need to ratify it in their assemblies after which parliament has to ratify it again. So it's going to take a while to implement. Don't wait for it.

Hyundai India putting Creta exports on hold, will meet Indian market demand first.

Confirmed booking numbers rise to 32,000, with 20% of those bookings for the petrol variants.

South Korean carmaker Hyundai Motor India has deferred its plan to export Creta SUV by a few months to meet demand for the new vehicle in the domestic market. With a booking of 32,000 units, the company is adjusting its production schedules to reduce waiting period.

The company has deferred the plans to export its vehicle from September to November-December. It is not the first time that the company has reacted to market demand, earlier decided to advance the launch of the vehicle in the market by a couple of months to July.

Rakesh Srivastava, senior vice-president, sales and marketing at Hyundai Motor India said: "We are delighted. We are increasing production to reduce waiting period."

The company has already retailed about 8,000 units and produced about 11,000 units in the past couple of months. The waiting period runs from 3 months to 9 months depending on the variant and location.

Interestingly, in a primarily diesel driven market, the company has already garnered 20% bookings for the petrol variant of Creta.

Just saw the Creta at the local dealership. The car is really spot on but at the same time it is overpriced. Atleast they should have offered 4x4 at this price.

Can we attribute some of these numbers to the gushing reviews of Creta by the new owners on Team-BHP?

You generally get a feel about the success of a newly launched vehicle by way of how many and how quickly you spot a newly launched vehicle on the road. By this criteria Creta seems to be a big success. I have been spotting new Cretas on the road on a daily basis. Can't say the same about Jazz and although very early for SCross, but not seen any on the road.

Spotted a white creta with those beautiful 17" diamond cut alloys looking like a stunning little package. The white color with black alloy rims like in the fortuner is a great combination

Guys, is there a picture of the dashboard of the Creta Petrol Base model? Thinking of replacing Swift with the Creta Base and then accessorizing it (AVN)

Weird call from Trident Hyundai (TH) today

TH: Hello. Mr Rajeev?
Me: Yes
TH: Sir you had expressed interest in the Creta?
Me: Yes I did.
TH: Do you have an old car?
Me: No, I do not have (assuming they are asking if I have car for exchange)
TH: Ok thank you. Bye.

Pretty strange. Were they identifying customers with an old car to exchange? If so, for what purpose. Or checking if I already have a car with the assumption that a first time buyer interested in Creta is probably wasting their time?

Its not weird , Yesterday i received a call from Himgiri Hyundai , Delhi asking the same .Unlike you i actually got my car evaluated [a 2008 swift diesel vdi] . I plan to change my car next year though for the Hyundai Creta .

Any spelling mistakes are regretted as my laptops keyboard was fried due to my son spilling milk on it.

Would the road taxes come under the purview of GST ? My understanding was that GST is to bring in a new system in place of various states sales taxes and central sales tax (CST). If it will help making the road tax uniform in all states, that's great !

PS : May be I jumped the gun. Your intention would have been to save some money in the sales tax component with GST coming in force.

I got the call too. It was from their exchange department and then I got a separate call from their accessories department as well. Looks like they all work independently once you express interest.
