Thanks, this is probably it. My sunroof was fiddled with during our last drive and I see it is not flat or closed completely.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

I had booked a Ranger Khakhi SX DT AMT on 15 Aug in Mumbai, with an expected Delivery Date between 15 Sep-15 Oct at the time of booking. I have been following up for the past couple of weeks and my sales rep today said the Dual Tone variant is not being dispatched from the factory, and he feels delivery could be in 2024.

While I don't mind waiting, I wanted to check if anyone on this forum has received the Dual Tone version recently - any info will help. Should I try another booking with another dealer as well? Any other options this group suggests I should try? Thanks!

I have received the first SX DT AMT on 27th Sept in Goa (i will post pics shortly) it was the first one in Goa, that was what was told to me.

Even though i had booked on 17th May it took me more than 4 months for my version as i was told very few of these version are manufactured and sent from the factory.

If you can wait it is a great buy for the price and features.

Congratulations on your purchase. I just wanted to check if the dealers honor the price that was quoted at the time of booking (or) they insist on the current price as there has been an increase in the car price recently.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

I just noticed a weird behavior in my Exter SX(O) Petrol Manual. I have been driving it from last 1 month and everything is fine. Got the first service done day before yesterday and the only issue was slightly pulling left.

While driving back home from service center, I received a call, and I answered it using the steering controls and the call was received. I was able to hear the voice of caller, but the caller was not able to hear me. The call was disconnected, and I called back. But still the other end was not able to hear me.

I tired recalling that there were numerous calls I received in this 1 month and never faced this issue and there was nothing done with the car audio in the service. Then how come suddenly this issue crop up.

After thinking for quite a few minutes, I realized that I was not using the Car Play this time which I was earlier. I stopped the car, connected the Car Play and called a number and yes, it was working properly. I was able to talk and hear using the car stereo.

So, without Car Play connected, I'm not able to hear the person on the other side on phone call.

Am I missing some setting in the ICE? I'm sure it should not be this way. The audio is playing nice without Car Play and the track change is also working with ICE.

Or should I take it to the service center for inspection?

Thanks, price increased after i got the car (after around 10 days) so no idea, but i dont think they will give it for the old price, demand is good enough for the car.

No they don't. My father will be taking delivery of the Exter SX AMT tomorrow at the current price even though we had booked before the price rise.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

I booked an Exter SX AMT yesterday! The car is in stock, so I'm hoping to drive it home within a week.

Why Exter?



We were looking for a small city car for my wife with a 7-9L budget, and these were the ones that made the final cut (in the sequence that our selection process proceeded)
P.S. All the opinions mentioned below are from my wife's perspective
  1. Maruti Spresso - The plan was to go with a tiny car, and we really like this one. Some of the things we didn't enjoy were the lack of power steering, which made the car difficult to drive, especially in turns where the steering didn't autocorrect. Poorly made interiors
  2. Maruti Ignis - After we ruled out Spresso, the next default choice imposed on us by Maruti/Nexa SA was Ignis. To be honest, the car is enjoyable to drive, and for some reason, the AMT feels more refined. However, in the end, the ride and interior quality were not up to level with vehicles like the i10. We put this option on hold and returned to the market.

    Quote:
    A general comment about Maruti - all of their Test-Drive vehicles are in total disarray. Rattling noises, interior damage, jerks, and so on. How somebody is supposed to "experience" such a test drive and then decide to buy the car is beyond me, Maruti! Given the strong sales, perhaps they don't give a damn.
  3. Grand i10 Nios - After driving a lot of Marutis, you're bound to like this one. We enjoyed the car because it drives well and has more features than the Ignis. It proved to be a more VFM car with a little bit more expense. We felt the AMT was more refined than Maruti engines; we experienced fewer jerks.

    We eventually settled on the i10 Nios Sportz AMT version, which was roughly 9.5L on the road.,
  4. Exter - As an SUV, this car did not initially pique my wife's interest, as she considered it to be outside the "small-car" category.
    During our visit to the Hyundai showroom for the final i10 discussion, my wife decided to spend her free time inside Exter while the SA was organising the i10 paperwork.

    We found the car to be attractive, not overly large, and built on the i10 platform, which guarantees that it is a small ca (at least on paper.)

    What's more, the Exter Base (S) AMT came with a tonne of features out of the box. We weren't too interested in the higher variants and their features (auto A/C, sunroof, tilt steering, cruise control, etc.) because this wasn't going to be our daily driver.

    The Exter S AMT option was chosen. According to Hyundai SA, there was a three to five month wait, and since Hyundai has increased Exter's production, the delivery could occur sooner.

Booking Experience




From S -> SX
A few days ago, I received a message from the SA informing me that a cancellation had made the White SX variant available in stock.
As previously stated, we didn't initially want the SX variant, but availability later played a role. Also, after seeing some reviews on YouTube and reading this Team-BHP thread on Exter, I decided to upgrade.

Insurance
The Hyundai price list's initial insurance quote, which was 55k for an 8.7L Ex-Showroom, was far too expensive.
Before going to Hyundai for the booking, I decided to contact a couple of known insurance people and get some quotes that were half of what Hyundai was offering.
During the booking, I told the SA that I want to opt for self-insurance. He was keen to know what quotation I am getting from market and to my surprise, he decided to match it! It was one hassle less and moreover less on-road price for us. Win-Win.

The overall booking experience was super smooth. The Hyundai folks were very polite and were very helpful in understanding everything related to car and the booking process, accessories, pricing etc.

Now waiting for all the formalities to complete! Hopefully will drive Exter home next week

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

This is the 17 digit chassis number, you need the 19 digit VIN. From this you can see that the car is 2023 manufacture. The 19th digit will give the month.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

A question on upgrades and warranty. I find the horn to be pretty low and does not garner the desired attention on the roads. The speakers are not that great and the headlight could do with an upgrade too. Any thoughts on impact to warranty if any of this was changed?

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Took a TD of the AMT Exter. Head nod is too pronounced for a 10 lac on road vehicle.

Suspension is good for city ride. Space and interior are excellent.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Speakers and headlights are also offered as genuine accessories by Hyundai.

https://hyundaimobisin.com/products/...essories/exter

You can check with your dealer to have it installed in your car. The advantage of fitting genuine Hyundai accessories as listed in their website, from the dealer is that it doesn't void the warranty. If you go for aftermarket fitment from others, there's always a risk of your warranty getting void.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

The best thing about the ICE is you can stream YouTube Audio also through Bluetooth. If you have YouTube premium, you can press the off button and still listen to the audio through your car speakers. If you don't have YouTube premium, you have to keep the phone on all the time.
