Hi Mate, Congratulations , indeed the colour your good self has chosen is a head turner and as you have rightly mentioned the blackend A + B pillars really bring out the colour.

I wish you, happy mile munching in this gorgeous vehicle.

Regards,
Kunal

Slotting to reverse gear in my less than a month old Petrol E+ creta is not smooth like other gears. Any one else facing the same? Does it need any special attention during first service or is it the nature of the gear box? Car has run 1150 Kms as of now.

Hi Everyone,

This is a question for all Creta owners on the forum here regarding the infotainment system, specifically the ones before introduction of the CarPlay Unit (~Pre April 2017). My car is an October 2016 make, with the 7 inch touchscreen unit.

I have sat on this issue for 11 months till I visited the service centre again. When I connect my iPhone with the apple lightening cable, the phone only charges. It displays a message showing 'reading iPod' and then 'failed to read' and continues to charge. Have tried this with multiple cables and across iPhone 6,6S & 7 too. I have just given my car for service and have pointed this out. There was some confusion at the dealer, if such a feature even exists in the Creta in the non CarPlay units which I have !!

I showed the friendly folk at Safdarjang Hyundai, how it works in a Grand i10, i20 etc and they have agreed to look into it and update the software version in the unit.

Any pointers? It is a made for iPod/iPhone system right? Can stream music via the cable ? I find it very hard to believe that in the Creta when an iPhone is plugged into the USB, it can only charge.

PS- Both iPhone & iPod function perfectly in my Grand i10, and the playlists, songs everything shows up on the unit in the Gi10. Hoping it is just some bug on my Creta.

Any pointers guys.

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone please confirm if the vehicle's owner's manual is a part of service booklet in case of the Creta ? Why I am asking is because while handing over the car by the deslership, I was presented with three booklets, a Service Booklet, a Car Navigation System Owner manual and last one Navigation Owner's manual.

On enquiring from the Sales person he said hyundai is now providing the manual in form of a CD thats there with service manual. Is this true ?

Regards
Kunal

I did receive a bunch of books with the car.
1) Owner's manual and service booklet
2) Navigation manual
3) Car navigation system

I also did receive the manual in the CD form as well. BTW, my car is from the first batch. Maybe they skimped it later like they always do.

Yeah they've stopped giving out the physical owner's manual.
Even I got the CD-ROM when I bought my car ~15 days back.

It's been documented on the thread previously as well.

Can something be done by writing to Hyundai senior management directly ?
Any update on your colleague's car status? Really unfortunate. My heart goes out to him. Even the mistake is entirely his, I still hope he gets to fix his car without spending too much money. Spending 6 lacs to fix a new car is truly heartbreaking.

Hello, is that a single module that does both the jobs? Cost?

No resistance from Hyundai?

Hi Mate,

How are you ? Any news about the delivery date of your SX (o)?

These are two separate modules, cost of both was INR 4500 (inculsive of Labour).

Hyundai sales executive were against any addition of after market electrical accessories, but I got these installed anyhow.

Regards
Kunal

I am fine buddy. Thank you.

No news of any sort on my SX(O). No allotment done so far. No idea when I'll get the delivery. Loosing faith and all the new car buying excitement has gone down the drain.

Ok. That's a decent price. Any images of the install and make of the item? Is it KMH or RD?

Any other modifications planned for your Creta?

I pray and hope that you get the delivery at the earliest.

The make of the modules were ToRq.

The battery of my phone went dead so could not document the install.

Planning to replace the stock halogen bulbs with Led bulbs. Also as now I already installed the modules so planning to add few more electrical accessories (electrochromic ivrm, leds for foot well ilumination etc.)

Kunal

He is in constant touch with the dealer. He also tried reaching Hyundai, but no positive improvement it seems.

He is in absolutely no mood to spend 6.5 lakhs on a brand new car with a question mark on its future reliability. Most probably it looks like, he may sell the car off and get over with this episode.

Hi All,

Help needed, I am not able to find the option of controlling the illumination of instrument cluster, is this option omitted by Hyundai for SX+ model ??

SX+ does not have the feature to adjust brightness of the instrument cluster. Only SX(O) gets it. Its mentioned as well in the Official Review itself, go to the last page.
