I am again totally surprised by the senseless diesel fans recommending diesel. You have done 7k on your previous vehicle in 11 months. There is no logical reason to pursue another diesel.

Better be sensible, buy a i10 1.2 and stay happy. It'll run cheap and keep you happy for long. Not to mention that it'll hold resale

Hey, no one's recommending diesel here! But classic did choose to buy a diesel despite his usage pattern, so some may presume he IS a diesel fan himself!

Ok, thanks guys.. I will do this
1. Will hold on to this car another year... i would add on another 12K, which will take my reading to 105K.
2. I guess next time would go for petrol as you suggesting.
3. With my experiance no used cars, and high mileage diesel in particular.

@classic.

I think thats the right way to go, and dont worry too much about having bought a clocked car, there must be many people who have bought used clocked cars and arent aware of the same!

@ classicselva , most of the diesel pumps are serviceable, depending on the make you can get them serviced by authorized LUCAS or BOSCH service centres. Give it a try tell the A.S.S that remove the unit , i will get the unit repaired or replaced and you can fit it back in .

I just had my Accent CRDi timing belt changed - costed me 1,500 thereabouts only!

1. You have taken care of the rust
2. You have changed the fuel pump.
3. You can so the suspension in a month or two.

Change you timing belt immediately and you have a fully functional car. I will not recommend selling at all - nothing else that can go wrong!

Default Back wth more problem !!!

Team,
I am struck with another problem now..

Last monday, my CRDi was not going above 20Km/Ph. Slowly i drove to the Hyndai Service center. After a day investigation, they came out that "EGR Solenoid Valve" is gone......
And the replacing cost is 17K + Labour charge.

I am confused... here...
Is it really that costly to maintain a diesel engine?
if so i should never go for a Diesel car in my life....

Or it is happening only to me? Please advice.

Now i made up my mind to go for exchange... so which is the best Hatch back (i am degrading from sedan to Hatch back), i can not withstand any more unexpected out comes of the Accent...

Please advice and let me know if you need more information.

- Thanks

It might help you to go through this thread.

Oddly though, some specific parts of the Accent CRDi are crazily priced in the authorized service stations. It would help to look for the specific part from an independent spares shop. And not all diesels are so expensive to maintain, but yes, diesels as a rule are more expensive than petrols. The more you run a diesel, the more cost-effective it is.

For your usage pattern, the consensus across the forum is for you to go for a petrol - hatch or sedan is your choice.

I'm sorry to hear all the troubles that you've undergone & its best to go in for a new car that fits well into your budget & pls try to avoid a loan to buy a car.

IMHO, you're moving on to buy a new car from an used car, this is the way I see it. On your question on hatchback, this forum will certainly do a justice. To help you begin, just start with the ones below

1. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/hatchb...-vote-now.html (Which Hatchback - Vote now)
2. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...hback-war.html

Look forward for (s)miles of memorable trips with your new car

Selva
Now that you have made up your mind to go for a new car then good luck with your hunt. However it appears like a knee-jerk reaction to the high cost of the fixing the valve. I am not aware of the pricelist of accent parts but as SS has suggested, some of the parts are ridiculously priced. Try going to some independent garage and finding out the cost of the same.

I got both the front shockers changed when one of the front shockers started giving problem at 80k kms. I sourced the shockers from a guy in Delhi who salvages shockers from scrapped cars. The downside is that the shockers wont be readily available and but with a little patience it works out.

Selva as suggested by many here its better for you to get rid of the car.the biggest concern is pricey parts and add to it HASS.Even i went to a private garage for engine overhaul, entire engine was done for 1.5 lacs including a new turbocharger and new shocks rear, For all this i was quoted almost 2 for overhaul and rebuild and 75k for Turbo.

Looks like the car is on its last leg with previous owners abusing it badly. Also, I assume the engine has done close to 1.5 lakh kms considering it had done 80K Kms way back in June'06.

Best is to sell it ASAP and cut back your loss.

Selva, I think you should go for a petrol car now; It will give you the much needed peace of mind for years.
If the CRDi is not fetching decent money in open market, try at the Hyundai dealership; you'll get the loyalty bonus etc as well.
If you are particular about a sedan, go in for the dzire 1.2 which should work out at same/less cost of i20.
