Yesterday on way back home I was unable to get the car to slot into neutral from the 5th despite the clutch fully depressed and was eventually able to do it after considerable effort. All other gears are butter smooth . Car is used 90% on highways and I take care to avoid riding clutch when in city. I dropped off car this morning at Advaith this morning and they want to open the gearbox to check. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hyundai A.S.S tells me that one of the cogs of the 5th gear has snapped! Image 1 where the screw driver is pointed.

While this will be replaced under warranty, I'm very disappointed that this can happen at just 20K kms. I drive very carefully and the car is never abused. No one else but me drives this car at home and i never give it to valet etc. So my big question is how could this have happened? Manufacturing Defect? Did I snap it when i forced the gear into neutral a couple of times when it got stuck? Something else? Please advice!

Thats EXCELLENT. Otherwise it would have been a costly affair. I hope they are replacing the transmission as a whole?

On close look, I'm not able to see how its broken though. Seems properly finished and smooth. Seems as if thats how it is designed.

It can be either. Manufacturing defect = some minute weakness in forging/foreign material stuck in it cannot be ruled out.

At the same time - Lock nuts have been known to break when gear is forced with power to shift position. I had kind of already anticipated this when you mentioned you forced it from 5th. However if this is the case - then the root cause of why the gear was getting stuck is unanswered. This is where I was suspecting depleted lube level. Do not mention to them that you forced the gear out.

Thats why I recommend that they change the whole transmission as a unit, to get rid of this possibly unknown root cause also.

And don't be so disappointed. Its a machine. They break once in a while. Fix it, forget it and enjoy the journey.

Any luck on this? Would like to see if there is any solution?

No man! I've talked to my FNG, but it seems he has no clue. Also as it will involve modifying the electrical, he advised me to stay off and let the warranty be. This whole beep thing is an utter nuisance, but we do have to live with it!

This query is regarding my friend's 1 yr old facelifted creta 1.4 diesel E+ in which we have installed accessories like Blaupunkt HU, steering controls, etc.

His car has this problem of blower fan not throwing enough air, intermittently, when on speed 1. After the blower throws very less air when at speed 1, we set the blower fan at 4 speed and after that when we switch it back to 1 speed then the blower is normal again.

The problem arises again after sometime and we have to again repeat the process.

What could be the problem and possible solution for the same?

There are 2 possibilities -
  • There is too much dust and grime accumulated around the blower motor shaft. Needs to be dis-assembled, sprayed with WD40, cleaned & put back together.
  • The motor is malfunctioning & not drawing current properly at lower rate.

Considering the car's age I presume its still in warranty. It would be best to visit HASS and insist on getting it replaced under warranty without accepting any lame arguments. If pushed back - use Twitter tagging Hyundai handles.
