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

Hi guys, I've the 1.4 diesel Creta brought last November. I run about 40k kms every year including past year. The last service I did a few days back i shifted to my FNG at 40k kms as I don't want Bill shocks at the ASC. Previously all services done at local Hyundai ASC.Sourced all the parts from MOBIS.

My questions are as follows-
1. Would be it be good to do the oil change/ service at 8k kms? For better engine life. My Mech from FNG suggested 10w40 @ every 10k kms or if using company specs of 15w40 @ 8k kms.

2. Would it be good to go for Bosch fuel filter as it's only Rs800 as against Rs 1800 for the genuine Hyundai ones.

3. Bosch brake pads are only Rs 1000 as against Rs3750 for genuine ones. I've already brought this was wondering if Bosch was good enough.

4. Planing to buy Mobil 15w40 6.5 liter bucket from Amazon as it's only Rs 1850 as against local Petronas which was Rs2200 for the same. Any thoughts on this?

Since I service every 2 and half months service costs are important for me. If I switch to 8k service one service cost per year will increase, I'm willing to go for it if I can get trouble free 5 years of use ( Generally I keep a car for 8-10 years. First 4 -5 years as highway car. Next as a secondary city car)Anything else you would suggest me to service on a schedule apart from this? I've used a Duster 85 ps for past 4 years before this which is now my secondary car which currently is at 214k kms doing only routine oil changes. Can the Creta follow a similar service/usage? Past year has been great. Good fuel milage and hardly any niggles.

Awaiting your comments. Thanks in advance

Hey Guys I have 2015 Creta Diesel Automatic.

I have run around 52K kms and am still on the Factory Tyres and I think they are due for change, what tyres would you suggest for the Creta for comfort and long life.

Am planning to keep the car for 2 more years alteast, and am contemplating an Audio upgrade as well.

Cheers.
