Default Re: Hyundai Creta SX+ Automatic - Initial Ownership Report

Thanks BNM. Your report helped push the decision. Took the delivery of our white SX+ CRDI auto Creta yesterday.

Luckily our Creta has come with leather wrapped steering but I still miss the seats. Loved your seats. Sadly we dont have too many options here in Goa.

By the way have you evaluated front parking sensors for your Creta or know of anyone who has?

Cheers
Vinesh

Hi BNM, Soon to be a year for you and the Red Creta. Thank you for keeping the thread updated so potential buyers are kept informed. I am on the look out for The Creta. I was thinking of the 1.6 SX(O) which I loved during the TD. But the AMT has caught my eye now. I stay in near to Sahakarnagar and work at GRTP, Whitefield.
I love to drive my current I20 Asta CRDI on the open roads but when It comes to the those traffic jams I wish I had an automatic. Keeping in mind I am not getting any younger and the Bangalore traffic is not getting any less I am leaning towards the AMT SX+. I wanted to know if you had done any long term calculations regarding the maintenance. if yes what kind of numbers came up. eg AMT regular maintenance.
Also does the regular and extended warranty cover the AMT gear box.? I plan to keep the car for 5 to 8 years. If my driving distance stays the same approx 1500km/month. I think the AMT makes sense.

Hey mate,

Just a small note, the Creta has a proper AT (automatic transmission), and not an AMT (automated manual transmission) as duster and a few others have.

Yes, my mistake. I was discussing with a friend about various automatics and the AMT just stuck in head. Anyway booked a SX+ AT, delivery before the end of the month if all goes as per plan.

I am sure you will not regret your decision to buy the AT - especially considering the traffic mess at KR Puram everyday (I am sure you are using the same Outer ring road from Hebbal to Whitefield).

Based on my experience with the diesel Verna which I owned previously, I am assuming it would cost 8 to 10K per year for the 10,000 Kms service. Maybe it would cost you twice the amount since you have indicated around 20K usage.

I dont have any idea on the maintenance for the AT transmission. However in my own experience and reading a few threads on TBHP, several manual clutch assemblies have been changed on the Vernas costing 20 to 25K - this at probably 25 to 30,000 Kms.

HI BNM, thanks for the update. Yeah since i would cover 10K in 6 months maintenance is doubled yearly. To avoid the crazy jams i take a different route which is sort of a parallel ORR. 10KM extra but minimal traffic,. With the AT I can swap between the routes. Just waiting for the delivery and start my experience with an automatic.

The dealer recently enquired with me about the mileage as prospective customers are asking them real world figures. It seems other AT owners too are getting close to 12.50 and some less.
We are barely getting 11. Hopefully we'll get to your 12.5 figure after second service. I'm assuming these numbers are for Panaji use?

Yes these figures are for use in and around Panaji on weekdays, and drive to our native place 30 kms away on weekends.
I think your numbers should improve gradually.

Hi BNM, quick question. my AT does not seem beep when while in reverse mode when approaching close to objects. Is this normal? I will be going for the first free service shortly so wanted to check if something is wrong.

No it is not Normal. It has to beep while any other car fitted with reverse sensors.

Hi. I am harman, a fellow owner of creta petrol automatic.

Must say your ownership report was a goldmine for me. It covered all my aspects and answered mostly all my questions, even i did my fare share in mods and try to individualise my creta from others.
My basic pull to get audio upgrades and hid upgrades was decided once i looked at yours.
Btw i am a big fan of your rims, must say suit the creta

Great mods mate! The car does look unique. What make/model alloys are those?
