Extended warranty comes from the company. So if you have written documentation then there is no reason to worry. Speak to Hyundai and they will be able to help. Lastly, if nothing works please take this or at lest threaten to take this to the consumer court.

Yeah, the fill-petrol lamp was on

Sounds like you got served a bad apple in the form of an SA.

Usually, any additional accessories / discounts / services / extended warranties are always written in the Proforma Invoice and the final order booklet irrespective of what the customer pays for it.

Happy and Safe Driving!!
Thanks @sidpunjabi. I thought the SA was honest enough. But a lesson learnt and the same has been told to a friend as well.

At the outset, you've been cheated for extended warranty by the dodgy tricks of the sales advisor.
2 places where you could've been more careful are :
a) Getting a written/E-mail commitment from the SA/Dealer.

b) This :

Pay only after you sign the PDI dotted line, and ofcourse, sign the PDI only after you are fully satisfied with all parts of the deal i.e. the vehicle as well as the financial commitment.

Long story short, unless you have local support, I don't think you'll get any help from anywhere. At most you can probably expose the name of the Sales Advisor here, so that others may not get cheated similarly.
Agreed, I should have been more careful. I think I got emotional on the day of delivery and stopped using my head.

It will also give you a satisfaction of having done something rather than just being helpless. You might in fact get a good resolution as well.
Thanks @Reinhard.

I had raised a complaint to Hyundai. Got a call from the dealer, who again repeated the same thing, that giving extended warranty at this price point is not possible and abruptly cut the call.
Anyway, I think as everybody is suggesting here, I'll have to make my peace with it, and purchase the extended warranty from the outside. One thing I have made sure of is not to step-in the showroom, even for the service

Guys a quick question, has the production of asto o CVT stopped? A close friend checked in Nasik, Jalgaon, Pune and finally found a Mumbai dealer having its inventory. All other dealers said the production has been stopped. Is it to minimise 2019 make inventory? He got his car at 9.8 Lacs on road cost.

Hi motorworks,

Short answer: No. There's no default specification saying that only synthetic oil needs to be used.

Your mileage of 5k per year, which I'm guessing is primarily to go from point A to B within the city, does not warrant the need for synthetic engine oil. A good quality mineral oil will work equally well and will be lighter on the pocket as well.

You can check out this T-bhp thread on the difference between Synthetic and Mineral oil and when to use what.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modif...neral-oil.html (ARTICLE: Synthetic oil vs Mineral oil)

While each type of oil has its pros and cons, in the end, it's a personal choice.

Are you looking for authorised service centre or an FNG?

Preferably authorized service center but FNG will also work.

I find the low speed ride quality of the i20 Ellite Asta to be horrible. If 185/70 R14 makes noticeable difference, I would be happy to swap my rim/tyre from the lower trims. Do service centers facilitate such swaps? I will also explore exchanging at the service center (but they may not offer much for the Rim/tyre of an year old car)
I am not much worried about the looks.

Most of the service centers never facilitate such swaps. They just sell the tyres and rims but never swap. Regarding the low speed ride quality, did you try changing the tyre pressure? People always prefer up-sizing for better ride and control, but first time I hear someone actually wants to downsize.

Thanks,

Hyundai Service centers do not have anything called as swaps, In case you are looking for swapping the rims/ alloys you need to go for Aftermarket setups.

Even I did face this ride quality issues on my i20 Sportz which comes with 185/70 R14 as well. I went with installation of Bosch Rogerab from Madhu's post which ride quality has improved a lot which is easy for your pockets as well.

I know it is rare. I think in most cases, people want better handling and 'upsizing' is the way to go. In my case, I am keen on more absorbent ride quality at low speeds. Downsizing would result in taller side walls and this should help (theoretically)

That means, just going for 185/70 R14 doesn't help. I will look in to the Bosch Rogerab option.
What I meant by 'swap' is, there must be customers who want to up-size from their R14 set up and I want to down-size. This could be a win-win situation. But going by your experience, the issue may not get solved by playing with the 'sidewall height'.

The cause for your issue is either of two 1) inappropriate air pressure in the tyres

2) could be from suspension.

For me it was more of suspension. Due to the very soft suspension of Elite I20 ride quality also reduces in low speeds. This was fixed when I went with Rogerab by making the suspension bit firm.

Hi All,

The battery in the elite i20 has a black coloured cover. Anyone know if the cover is important? Mine was chewed at one side by rats and I checked with ASS and they do not have that as a part. They are saying it's just a cover given around the battery. Can someone say if it's of any use and if I can get a spare somewhere?

Regards,
Dhananjay
