My car has run for 19500kms and will ask the service engineer to check the spark plugs when I go for service at 20k. Can you please let me know the RPM range that your car hovers around to reach 100kmph? I think it was able to reach around 2500-2700, if I remember correctly on a regular road(without any inclines). Wanted to go with some info to the service adviser as they say everything is fine and won't check properly.

To achieve speed of 100kmph, RPM is generally @ 2500. For better tuned engines like Corolla Altis(diesel) it is at 2000 rpm.

Hi All, one general quick question - - when I topped off my fuel on i20 asta I found that it took 47.4x litres. But the fuel tank capacity stated is 45. Is this capacity different from the full-to-the-brim capacity?

Exactly... I too don't think the tank capacity is 45 litres. It must be more, but no idea what that exact number is. When i filled petrol to the brim twice, it exceeded 45 litres.

Ok. That begs the question - is it risky to top off the fuel? Given that there is an implied difference between the rated capacity and the actual capacity - are we tipping off the balance somewhere? such as it upsets the vapor barrier!?

She could've pulled the handbrake in such an emergency, isn't it?

But am not sure even the Hand Brakes will do the job in such situation. Among 2 Occupants who were sitting on the rear seat 1 was dead. Another with minimal Scratches. Front seat Occupied by another two ladies, They were wearing seat belts and Airbags Deployed. But the Lady drivers situation is still bad as she is ahving major injury on her Spinal cord. She has been taken to Singapore for a Surgery.

Lost one key: replacement process

Background:
Our i20 came with 2 keys, both with electronic (button type) key fob together with a key that goes into the ignition.

A few months ago, the parking attendant at my wife's office lost one of the keys for our i20.

Replacement process as explained by Hyundai:
Went to Hyundai COCO service centre at Char Rasta Sewri (Mumbai) and here's the process to get a new key as explained by them.

1. They took my car's registration number to pull out the VIN number etc to understand what sort of key it comes with.

2. I need to pay Rs. 8400 (approx) to Hyundai for which they supply me the key fob with an embedded blank smooth key.

3. I need to go out into the market myself, and get some key maker to chisel it in shape using the spare key for reference, either manually or using some sort of machine - I'm not sure what the process is.
3(a). Hyundai will not do step 3 themselves.
3(b). Hyundai will not even provide me a reference as to who does this in the outside market. This is something I have to figure out by myself.

4. Once I have completed step 3., I come back to Hyundai and they complete some sort of coding on my key so that the buttons operate the car properly.

5. I'm now good to return home with 2 sets of keys.

My issues:
I find it inconceivable that Hyundai is making me do part of the work to complete this process - that too aftermarket. My expectation is I should go to Hyundai with my car and spare key, leave the car with them if so required, pay them the necessary charges and they will provide me the spare key officially from Hyundai.

Firstly, why do I have to do part of the running around in this process (that too where they provide no assistance in even pointing me in the right direction - see 3(b) above).

Secondly, while they are programming the button keys, I'm effectively forced to getting the actual key made from a roadside ventor - this is the part of the key that goes into the ignition - I find this proposition very disconcerting.

Queries:
i. Can anyone tell me if they've had a similar experience (with Hyundai or anyone else) and if this is indeed the process or am I being misguided.

ii. Assuming this is the only way I can get a spare key, can anyone guide me to a reliable source in Mumbai (preferably not in the far suburbs) where I can do the work set out in point 3 above.

Any other thoughts or comments on this welcome. Overall I'm very disappointed at the way they are handling this entire process. Just out of curiosity, I'm going to check with Honda what they would have done had this happened with my City / Civic.

Thanks in advance!

4. Once I have completed step 3., I come back to Hyundai and they complete some sort of coding on my key so that the buttons operate the car properly.
I just inquired with a reputed wheel alignment centre who also specialises in keys about the duplication of the entire key around 4 months back. They said it can be done only in their main branch with some specialised tools and said the total cost may be around 2500 (I'm not sure about the cost figure but it was definitely nowhere near 8500). Also the running around for getting chiselled was not the part of the process. They told that it may take 1-2 days to finish the entire process. My suggestion is to inquire outside before finalising with Hyundai. I don't have much idea about the cost but the price quoted by Hyundai seems to be outrageous.

One more doubt I have is that the coding can be done only by Hyundai? When I'd inquired for the key, they told that it needs some coding but they never mentioned that it'll be done by themselves or I should take the key to Hyundai after the duplicate is ready for coding.

I think I need to safeguard my key more than the car itself by looking at the cost and entire process you have explained.

.
Thanks. I think I'll inquire in some after market service stations as well if possible. I too find the cost and even more so the process suggested by them ridiculous which is why I'm double checking on T bhp.

My first paid maintenance is due on the i20.

1. I need to change the engine oil. Do they drain the existing oil completely and then put in new one? Do I have to worry about whether they are actually putting in the new oil in the same quantity as they'll mention in the bill?

2. Is the HMP at Sewri/Cotton Green good(=honest). My current dealer has shady practices at his garage so I am not very comfortable going to him for my paid service.

3. What other things does one have to get done in the first paid service. I don't have any specific problems apart from some rattling in the driver side door.

4. Is rotation compulsory? I am planning to get it done outside along with alignment even though it's not required.

5. My dealer had told me to save the plastic ring that came with the spare key which had some number printed on it. He said that it'd help me get a duplicate in case of key loss. Is this under insurance?

Quite frustrated. If anyone has further inputs on original post please do advice.

Thanks

In my i20, when the FM/USB/CD is on, I can see TA blinking. What does this indicate ?
