Okay, is it manual or automatic? Because from anecdotes whatever I gather is its mostly in manuals (although yes, I've heard of automatics facing some issues but seems rarer). What I've heard is the transmission kind of takes care of the DPF by revving higher at some point of time. Not sure if its true though.

I would love to know more as well as I'm about to buy Sonet D AT. When you say it's a "gray area" in Kia diesels, what do you mean by that? I presume all of these cars share the same parts, yes?

Sorry for not being clear. Whenever I have asked around the service centres about DPFs, their functioning, potential issues and remedies, I never got clear satisfying answers. The same is the case when they're trying to debug an issue. Hence my notion of DPF being a gray area for the mechanics.

Edit: on the brighter side, it also means there isn't any known/frequent issues with Korean diesels and hence, the service centres don't know much about it!

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

In other news- the Creta seems to be getting a larger turbo petrol that can comply with BS6 phase 2. https://www.rushlane.com/creta-selto...-12455419.html

I drive a Diesel AT. There are very few DPF issues reported for Creta and the resolution reported is simple - drive on highway for 20-25 minutes or do a manual regen as per manual. You should not face it if you take your car to highway often. My usage is predominantly city and I have not faced it in the last 1.5 years (8.5k kms).

I would recommend you to go with Diesel AT, exactly for the points AnandG has mentioned earlier. I am happy about diesel purchase - The torque of the diesel, reliability of TC gearbox that is perfectly mated to engine with negligible rubber band effect, refined engine and decent mileage even with pushing the car (petrol mileage is throttle sensitive, as per reports).

The service cost is not high, you can see the expected cost in the hyundai online service cost calculator.

Most of the points have been covered by AnandG and PatienceWins. I would just like to add that, donít worry about DPF too much. I had these thoughts in mind when I bought my diesel AT last July and Iíve driven the car for about 25k kms and never had any DPF issues. Iíve driven in B2B traffic in Bangalore as well. Once in a while take the car out on the highway for an hour or so and you should be fine.

In fact driving this engine and gearbox is such a pleasurable experience that youíll take it out often.

Service costs I am not sure yet, because I had purchased the Shield of Trust - Super (it cost me 28k) and this covers all the service costs till 50k kms along with one time under body coating and one time interior anti-microbial treatment.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Hi Folks,

I got my Creta SXO IVT delivered last week. The vehicle is good in terms of road presence and also very smooth with silent cabin. The panoramic roof is just a nice touch to the car. Got the Ceramic Coating done at Ultimate Detailerz, Kaggadasapura. Rustam and team @ Utlimate Detalierz have done a good job.

There are few niggles, probably someone here can help me out.

1. The Engine ON button in the key fob doesn't work, it probably worked couple of times earlier but now even if I keep it pressed like 10-15secs are more also the engine doesn't get started.

2. Tried on BlueLink app, however it doesn't work either. The app itself is pretty slow in response and hardly works

3. The "Hello, Blue Link" wake command doesn't work. We tried saying in different ways shouting/accent , but nothing helps. The blue link button on the steering works fine.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Not sure how accurate this is, but TOI seems to have some dealership telling them that supply for the current Creta has stopped and the new one will be out in April. Link.

Congratz on your new car. Wishing you a wonderful ownership experience.

Regarding Ignition ON through remote/bluelink app, you need to follow a sequence as far as i know. Unlock the car, lock it and then hold the ignition on button. Itís a three step process and works for me every time.

Correct that there is a sequence to follow, but not necessarily a three step process and you donít have to unlock the car, if itís already locked. Here are a few scenarios I can think of. Please feel free to add more.

A. If the car is already switched off and locked, press the lock button and immediately hold the Ďignition oní button on the remote key for a few seconds. This will switch on the engine - a two step process.

B. If the car is already switched off, but not locked, press the lock button to lock the car and immediately hold the Ďignition oní button on the remote key for a few seconds. This will switch on the engine - a two step process (basically the same process as above).

C. If the engine is running, switch it off using the start/stop button. Get off the car, press the lock button to lock the car and immediately hold the Ďignition oní button on the remote key for a few seconds. This will switch on the engine.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

DCT is not meant for heavy traffic.

Yesterday I was stuck in a massive traffic jam, it was like start /stop kind of traffic, finally got transmission overheat message, had to pull over to the side and stop driving for about 10 mins.
Luckily resumed journey after that.

Avoid purchasing DCT if your intended usage is primarily city use, in dense traffic.

Test drive extensively.

@Tiagoatrix, how long were you stuck in traffic for? Is this the first time you were stuck in a traffic that long?

I was in traffic for about 20-30 minutes.Had faced longer traffic, but this one was a creeping traffic, stop - accelerate - break, couldn't shift to N or use auto hold.

Usually I shift to N in traffic.

But, after about 10 minutes of stop, I could resume driving. Will update in future.

I see you have driven this car for about 16k km already. A few queries:
1. Is it the first time you faced this issue?
2. Has your driving been in similar weather / temperatures historically since purchasing? I see the outside temperature is 40 deg in this case.
3. Has your car usage largely been city traffic all this while, or a large part has been highway traffic etc?

Thanks

1.Yes that was the first time I had faced that warning.
2.Outside temp was around 30 deg celcuis, I'm from Tamil Nadu, so I've been driving in higher temperatures, but possibly that was worst traffic that I had faced..
3.My run is 90%highways, I wouldn't have bought dct if my primary usage was city.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

My Creta Auto SZ+ was purchased in 2018. Shameful to admit, I have not clocked 30K kms on the ODO. I have three questions for fellow owners.
1. My AC seems to be not cooling properly. I had driven to Udupi and Gokarna recently and cabin cooling has been not satisfactory. I faced the same earlier and had taken it to a Bosch garage where they checked and said everything was fine (and a checkup was done prior to my drive to Udupi where I specifically asked to check the AC and related stuff). Do you face the same problem? What needs to be done?

2. What top speeds have you achieved on the highway? I feel the car juddering (not sure if this is even a proper word) when I touch 120 at about 2.5 rpm and am hesitant to go above that. Would you say going more than ~120 is possible? Also, I feel the engine noise is becoming loud beyond 2.4K rpm.

3. Braking. There was a time when I had to brake rather quickly. It just didnt slow down as fast as I thought it would. ABS didnt seem to kick in either (there is no error from the dashboard about ABS). It just feels rubbery. Guys facing same/similar situation? What can be done?
