Yes, you can find more details on this existing thread. Fuel pump mounts are inspected and in case the mount is found to be weak or damaged, they're replaced.

That's not normal.
Please check the cabin filter and under the bonnet for anything dead/decaying.

I have checked the engine bay, there is nothing dead or anything. I will take my Seltos to the Service center and update. Thank you

Guys,

Is Kia planning to give mild update to Seltos this year? I've heard from someone that the Kia is planning to give mild update to the Seltos by giving additional safety features in HTX and HTX+(both AT and MT), panoramic sunroof and wireless Carplay.

I hope that Kia will improve the structure of the Seltos or Sonet as it had scored 3 stars in GNCAP crash results.

I have booked Seltos HTX IVT and waiting for the delivery couple of months. I wanted to check on few things
1. Can I change 17 inch Hyper Metallic wheels to Crystal Cut ones, will it make any huge difference?
2. Same brand or other brand Subwoofer fitting for HTX (no Bose system in this) complimenting the existing sound system
3. Wiress charging and wireless Android Auto / Apple Carplay as an additional fitting
4. Sun control filter - Dealer says it costs ₹ 30,000 but outside shop guys it will cost ₹ 4,500. I am not sure why such a huge difference in price. Also, will this impact the night time view outside for the passengers?
5. Do we really need to change tyres, if so what are the recommendations?

I got 18+ kmpl on expressway/highway whereas in Mumbai traffic I noticed it varies between 12-14 kmpl.

Not really....I did feel a teeny bit of delay in sudden acceleration required while attempting an overtake on the highway. In the city traffic, that was not an issue. The automatic is otherwise a boon in the bumper to bumper traffic often found on Mumbai.

Does it happen when the AC is on, or only when you run it in the blower mode?

Hi!
Just wondering if anyone has got an after market 360 camera fitted in their Kia Seltos (I have a GTX DCT and had to take delivery since i was in need of a car and could not wait for GTX+ back in 2019)?
Please do share any reviews/ recommendations.

Hi, I have changed my cartridge multiple times. Service stations have three varieties of perfume cartridges and you can purchase them there whenever you visit them next. I tend to buy 2 when visit.
BTW, these cartridges are expensive (I recall more than 1000 rs per cartridge).

Have heard this on few youtube channels, though there is no official statement. I booked GTX + DCT on 3rd Feb and later checked with the sales guy, but he did not have any info on this. Just said they would book me for the updated one if I decide to go for it.

No meaningful authentic info available on added features or cost, it will add to the wait time as well. But it may be in the works given the decline in sales since the 2020 Creta. However I don't think it will address the safety issues, they are regarding footwell and body stability which cannot be addressed via a facelift.

Hi, the smell comes only when I switch the AC on and after 2 minutes the smell goes away.

That's incredible. I barely get 13-14 on the expressway if I'm lucky. In the city I get around 11-12 max.
