The total seems reasonable. However, there was no need for an injector cleaning to be done at such a low mileage. Did you specifically instruct them to do so since the car was giving you problems like a jerky throttle and uneven idling characteristics? If not then they have done this own their own just to inflate the bill. How much did the injector cleaning cost you? Could you also elaborate on what the HI Scan was? I don't see the need for these two things on a car that's run ~21k kms.

If you have used clean/unadulterated petrol there is no need to clean the fuel injectors so early. I got the injectors cleaned on my earlier Santro only at the 80k kms service because of the reasons mentioned above. My Alto is currently at 52k kms and the injectors have not been cleaned yet.

I called up my service advisor to clarify on this HI scan. He mentioned that the i10 is hooked on to a computer and all diagnostics is done to ensure that the electronics of the car is in perfect condition. The HI scan cost me Rs 37.00

No, I had not requested for fuel injector cleaning and it was done without my knowledge. anyway, this requirement will be included in my DND list ("Do-Not-Do") when my i10 goes for service the next time.

Hyundai charged me Rs 215 for Fuel injector cleaning. Now that my injectors are cleaned, this process will not be repeated again, at least for the next 40-50K clicks on the odo.

Following my 4th service on Monday, I took my i10 for wheel balancing, alignment and tyre rotation to an MRF dealer in Panjim on Tuesday. all three cost me Rs 650. The service was quite good and the attendants seemed to know their job quite well.

So, this amount may be added to the earlier service cost of Rs 2550 for the i10.

Hi,
I am taking my i1o 1.2 for the first free service tomorrow.
Although an oil/filter change is not on the check list, should I ask for one ?

How much bill to expect ?

I hope, after the first service, I can drive her, how she is meant to be and would be done with the 'run-in' period/kms

Thanks

The first service is just a free wash and routine check up. Bill should be zero.

Run in duration depends on the kms covered. I would suggest that you take it easy for the first few thousand kms. You don't need to drive slow, just don't rev the engine excessively.

Thank you, but I did get mixed feedback here about oil change at the first free service.
Some say, its good as you can see very minute metal parts during the oil drain ?!
Some say, Hyundai knows better, if an oil change is warranted during the first service, they would say/write so ?!

A Zero bill does sound nice. lol

So, I presume, its safe not to ask for oil change during the first service!
My car has run 1450kms in 27 days..

I would suggest you to follow the user manual. No need to change engine oil if the user manual does not specify so.

Slightly OT - with this kind of high usage, why did you opt for a petrol car ?

Since you have already done 1.5k kms, I would say that you could start revving the engine once in a while. But with the current petrol prices, who wants to over-rev the engine ?

Hi Rohan ,

We did a Pondicherry trip in the new car, as desired by my wife. Hence, the high miles ( I did not rev high or hit high speeds )! I liked the way it pulls in the midrange.
Now onwards the car will see subdued usage , avg 900km/month...

misquitas,

This has been pending for a long time, but I have finally compiled my sales experience and initial ownership review of the Brio. You can take a look at the thread here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ip-review.html

I achieved the best FE on my i10, since I purchased the vehicle in December 2010.

Between 25/9/13 and 23/11/13, I covered 2534 kms and using the auto cut-off system, I filled in 117.36 litres. As a result, my i10 delivered a stupendous 21.59 KMPL.

Since I have purchased the car in December 2010, these are the following statistics:

* I have so far (as on 23/11/13) covered 46,254 kms.
* I have filled petrol 158 times.
* I have filled 2,664.76 litres of petrol.
* I have spent Rs 1,61,821.50 worth of petrol.
* The average cost of petrol is: Rs 60.72 per litre.
* The BEST FE so far is: 21.59 kmpl.
* The WORST FE so far is: 15.56 kmpl.
* The overall FE of my i10 is: 17.27 kmpl.

For a detailed FE log of my i10, check the following Excel file.

I10-LOG.xls

Thanks,
Melvyn
