Thanks, I'll check again.
This site mentions 15W40 though.

^^ Don't go for Synthetic this time around, you can plan in the next service. Your Creta has not yet run much ..

Folks,

I have a strange issue with my Creta SX(O). After a cold start I keep the engine running for 3-5 mins for the engine to heat before shifting gears and moving out from the parking. Initially after engaging the gear and releasing the clutch the car does not judder. But after a few kms when the car is stationary at the signals and engage the 1st gear and release the clutch the car judders. The judder increases every time when I am releasing the clutch when the car is in standstill especially in bumper-bumper traffic.

I have read in a few forms that there is a particular issue with Creta's clutch. My car has done close to 10500 kms and the second service was done at approx 7000 kms. Has anyone faced a similar issue and what can be a solution to the same.

I am kind of skeptical if the ASC might ask for a clutch and a flywheel replacement as i am quite a sedate driver and I have been driving other diesel cars for close to 1 Lakh kms without any issues with the clutch. What can possibility be the issue if the gurus can be kind enough to advise ?

Is the make of the Creta clutch different from that seen in i20 and Verna? Reason I ask is because there are several horror stories of the Creta diesel clutch

I am thinking in participating in a Creta petrol automatic in next years' maruti suzuki desert storm in the TSD veraion. Is it a bad idea?

Principally, I see two three issues:

1) the car does not inspire confidence in turning corners, or high speed lane changes. I am coming from a sedan (baleno) and owning the creta for 10 months, I still am not comfortable.

Will sway bars/strut bars help?

2) 2WD drive is ok, but no clutch control may be an issue in a desert situation?

3) the automatic is ok for cities, but in a rally? The lethargic response is beyond disappointing.

My Petrol SX+ is up for the 30k service, what is the advice for oil change?
Since price for Indian/Shell synthetic is almost same, I am assuming Shell will be a better choice?

Details as per Hyundai website:

Shell all the way. Its way better than the Indian Oil.

The dealerships usually do not stock shell and many times refuse to use the oil we directly buy from shell. Probably low profit margins and non availability of oil in barrels could be the reason.

Default re: Review: Hyundai Creta (1st-gen)

Could anyone help me with alloy specifications. I would like to add alloys to my E+ Diesel in 16 inches. Also i have few more questions


1 Why is that i see most of the people going in for 17 ? I was planning to get Momos in 16 inch(not sure if they are available for creta in this size).
2 I may too go in for 17 inch if i do not find anything suitable in 16.
3 Can Alloy wheel addition void warranty of any type ? Is it true that 16 will not void warranty but 17 will as it was not the OEM size ?
3 Apart from this i am also planning to add a reverse parking camera or sensor only from market and not showroom. The accessory showroom will use coupler and would not cut in any wiring . Can that also void warranty of any sorts ?
Any suggestions for any particular brands. I do not have a display in my oem 2 din music system. I like OEM like fittings and would want to avoid any extra displays or visible wirings. Also i see the sensors have that extra announcement of the distance in metres. I would love to stick to sensor and beeps only if i can get one.It is just the beeps that i prefer as a warning.

Hi Mate

Just for information sake, 17 inch alloys too comes as standard fittment in Auto and SX (o) variants of Creta.

I thought my stereo was acting strange, but seems like you have identified the problem. It was updated with the latest version as of October 2017. Quite an irritating bug because the stereo sounds so flat without any custom values.

Yes, that's the problem, It took 2hr's to convince & educate the hyundai SA about the issue, after that they have updated the system 3 times but problem continued, even they changed the HU itself by considering hardware problem, but they failed to fix the issue. They raised complaint to Hyundai technical team.

On 28th last month, Hyundai technical person took my creta for 4 hour's to update the system again to fix the bug, from last 3 days it is in my custom setting mode without return to default mode, let me observe for 10 days.

Thanks for replying. Yes i know. But i doubt that my car having OEM size as 16 when changed to 17 may put leave me with warranty issues? I am not sure about Hyundai Policy. Also does changing of OEM wheels to alloys of the same size has this issue ?

Can anyone comment

Hi

The accessory department at dealership offered to change the rins to 17 inch ones, so i think it shouldn't be an issue, but that subjective as its done at authorised dealership and the alloy on offer were Oem allosy, cant comfirm if the same is ture for aftermarket alloy and tyre shops.

Fearing this I had called the SC in advance and got confirmation that Shell oil was available. I got the 30k servicing done and the bill amount was ~Rs.10k, including Rs.3.5k for Shell Helix Ultra 5W-30.
