That is what I said. MID does not account or factor in the number of passengers whereas your real-world figures depends on how loaded the car is.

Well, if the MID FE reading indeed is the Distance Traveled divided by the Actual Fuel Consumed, then this calculation automatically takes care of the load.

The actual fuel consumed is dependent on the load - speed / weight / AC etc. So if you have one person on board then the load is less, your car consumes lesser fuel (than would be the case if you had higher load) and you get higher FE. More passengers = more load = more fuel consumed = less FE (assuming driving style/conditions are identical).

Ideally, the MID FE readings should match the Tankful-to-Tankful calculation. But the accuracy of the MID reading would depend on the accuracy of the sensors that are used to determine the distance traveled and measure the fuel consumed. All instruments have some error so the MID and Tankful-to-Tankful calculation end up differing.

The issue I have reported that after I attend a call, the music continues to plan but I don't hear anything (as though its on mute). It got fixed.

I have left my car for body shop repair and from yesterday. Once I took the car back home I did a reset of the player. Not sure if that has fixed the issue but I don't see that issue any more. I have at least tried more than 10 calls both dial in and receiving and it works fine.

Not sure if the player software version has been updated as it was in showroom for body shop (I doubt if someone will do / run the latest upgrade promptly without even asked for it!)

Out of blue, I got a call from Hyundai customer care. Following questions were asked and I was expected to give answer as Yes/No.
Few of the questions were:
  • If I am facing unusual engine noise
  • Is there a brake pedal shuddering
  • Is A/C functioning normally
  • Is there issue during Bluetooth connectivity
  • Actual mileage I am getting in City and Highway
  • Any gear stick issue
And a few more in similar line, but most of the questions are related to issues historically reported by some of our BHPians on several instances.
Luckily, for me, my black beauty is galloping without any issues till now (touch wood).

It seems, the questionnaires were made for some internal survey kind of thing for Hyundai as the representative just knew I have a Hyundai vehicle and not sure which one (she wanted to know If she can ask few questions regarding my Creta and I have a Verna).

I think they do this for everyone. I got a similar call with same set of questions 2 - 3 days after I took my car out of 2nd service.

Got the rear reflective changed to LED lights.
https://www.amazon.in/Reflector-Brak...verna+led+rear

Taking out the bumper was a painful process for me to watch.
The LED light cost 1640 (from Amazon) + 200 labour charges.
Due to a short-circuiting while installing the lights, two fuses had to be changed.

Cranked the car after a week, and it wonít start. All the lights started blinking on the dashboard and there was some clicking noise.
Surprising that battery would run out in a 4 month 4000 km run car.
My other car doesnít get started sometimes for over a month and cranks on the first attempt.
Anyway had a taste of Hyundai RSA.
I had called up the helpline at 6:30P.M.
Got a confirmation message at 6:37.
Hyundai RSA customer care said that the assistance will reach within 60 minutes.
Called up again at 7:30 since nobody had reached the site and was told the help is on the way and will reach within 10 minutes.
The RSA vehicle finally reached at 8:40 P.M. a good two hours after the first call.
This incident happened while the car was parked safely parked in the garage and I was at home itself. I donít think I would have liked had it happened out on the highway with my family.



Other than that of late I have noticed that while turning steering all the way the car makes a mechanical sound.
It doesnít occur regularly but gradually it is becoming more prominent.
Since I checked this while the car was stationary I thought maybe itís due to the gravel and stones on the tarmac underneath?
I am not sure, any pointers?

I think the noise is due to a faulty or bend tie rod. But what I understood is your car is 4000 km old, hence I don’t think tie rod would cause an issue so early. It is always better to check the same.

Note : I hope the mechanical sound you mentioned is a mild ‘tuk tuk’ rather than the sound of power steering motor.

I had the same issue, my battery went dead, my car has clocked 6500 km, took it to service and was diagnosed with an update for Auto Link. Works fine after that.

Hi. Is the EX model more VFM or SX in diesel verna? The main difference is alloy wheels, led tail lamps, projector headlights with DRL and a small ICE. Is the price difference of 1.10 lacs justified? If i buy EX, which among these accessories can i get intalled by the dealer or outsise.

In my opinion the SX is worth it you get the 7Ē infotainment which has android auto and carplay. Also with that you will get a button on the steering wheel for google assistant and Siri. These can't be retrofitted to the EX. Also the projector headlights are a bonus the cornering lamps work great at night and the drls look awesome. Some features that you get with SX over EX
-Alloy wheels 16Ē
-Electrochromic Mirror
-Electric folding Mirrors
-LED Tail Lights which look a lot better than the ones on the EX. On EX they look pretty bad with uneven lighting.
- 6 speakers vs 4 in EX

Had to visit the showroom post the battery fiasco because the right rear power window was not working, neither with the driver side buttons nor with the rear ones.
Surprisingly as soon as I reached the dealership it started working after a couple more attempts!
Meanwhile I asked them about the auto link update. They had no idea whatsoever.
@Smooth drive , did you mean an app update?
Or the firmware update which the app does while itís connected to the car via Bluetooth and the internet?
Or the kind of software update the service technicians do with their OBD set up?

Sorry to bombard you with so many queries.

I'm eagerly looking forward to the first service and will have to see if the noise goes away once the car completes a couple of thousand km.
I drove a brand new Verna 1.6D MT bought by one of my neighbors last day and felt that the engine sound is much quieter than my car. The clatter sound wasn't there, at least from inside the cabin the sound felt so smooth and muffled. I am really annoyed by the clatter sound of my car at lower rpms. This isn't something which got developed over time, it was like that from day #1 and I had assumed every Verna 1.6D was like that.

It is not actually a lag when the gear is shifting. As I explained, it happens during normal run (with a light foot on the pedal) and not exactly when the gear shift happens. Actually it happens somewhere near 2000 rpm when the gear shift is almost due from 2nd to 3rd gear. A momentary shudder and engine catches its breath again and keeps going. Gear shifts are perfect. Given below the behavior for easy reference.

(in Kmph) 1..2......10...15...16(shift to 2nd gear)....20...25...26...(shudder, momentary loss of power)...27..28...29...30..31(shift to 3rd gear)......

I find the engine sound quite acceptable on low RPMs. I don't know if it is a placebo but recently on a trip I completed close to 9,000 kms on my Verna and while returning I found that the noise has gone down even further. Since then I feel the car has become even quieter.

Haven't noticed this to be honest, but I will try to observe closely now.

In other news, I completed the 2nd free service (1 yr / 10k kms) recently. Got billed around 1.9k for oil etc.

Some mods I have done so far on my EX Auto Diesel:

1. Changing the default head-unit with an Android based HU imported from AliExpress. I have been able to get Android Auto running fairly well on it

2. Had to change reverse cam since the factory reverse-cam did not work with the imported HU (so this was a forced change)

3. Added a dash-cam (Viofo A119) - again imported from AliExpress

4. Changed the atrocious factory headlights on EX with Osram Night-breaker (visibility is acceptable now but still not 100% happy)

So I don't know if this is allowed or not on TeamBHP but I have created a Telegram Group for owners (and enthusiasts) of TheNextGenVerna to discuss your experience with the car. Link to join:

So have you got any explanation on why the battery become dead in just 4 months? If you don't mind, which is your OEM battery supplier?
