I also got a few holes in silencer pipe of my 2016 creta petrol driven 50k kms. Car was sounding like a sports car

Visited FNG Silencer Guy and saw that there were 6 holes in the pipe. He suggested not to waste money by getting it repaired as new holes might keep coming post current repair which made sense to me.

He changed a portion of pipe(pic attached) and charged me Rs1600 for new piece of pipe including fitting with 1 year warranty.

Overall satisfied with the work done.

Model: 2018 (facelift)
Sub-Model: CRETA 1.6 VTVT SX (Petrol), Manual Transmission
Color: Polar White
Date of Purchase: September 2018
Registration: Bangalore, Karnataka.

Ownership: 1st Owner, well maintained car with regular servicing done from Authorized Hyundai dealer.
Mileage : 9770 KM
Warranty: 5 Year Extended Warranty
Insurance - Valid till August 2022 (Comprehensive with Add On Coverages (ZD EP CM PB KP))
Condition: Excellent



Accessories:
1) PU Leather Seats
2) 3M Underbody anti-rust coating
3) Full interior floor lamination
4) Windshield Sunfilm
5) Chrome window frame trims
6) Door side molding

For 13 lakhs, is this a good deal?
I think it's expensive for 2018 model considering it's manual and model has changed.

For similar money or may be a lac more you will get new EX model. Agreed it will have lesser bells and whistles but still would make more sense than a 4 year old car.

If you are planning to take a loan then there would be difference in ROI as well which will further reduce the price gap.

I left 2019 Automatic top end driven 14000kms in Delhi last month as owner was hell bent on 12 Lacs and I had quoted 11.5 Lacs. I wanted to upgrade from Manual to automatic but then got a City 2018 ZX CVT for 8.7 Lacs so closed the deal immediately.

I was thinking about getting the spare steel wheel changed to alloy so that I can do five wheel tyre rotation. Thanks in advance.
I would suggest that rather than buying a new alloy which would cost you few thousands better get steel wheel tyre swapped with alloy tyre which you are planning to keep in boot from any tyre shop who would charge you hardly Rs50 to 100 for it.

Considering you would do it every 10k kms, you not even spend 500 to 1000 Rs in whole life of the car.

Else you can order it at any service center and they would get you a new one.

My 1st set of brake pads in manual transmission gave up at 35k kms and I replaced them with some made in Korea brake pads suggested by spare parts guy at FNG for Rs1200 instead of spending Rs3600 for OE brake pads.

After 15days of installation an irritating screeching sound started coming every morning when I reverse the car to take it out from my home and the noise goes off within 500 meters of driving. Other than that they have performed well. However now I will install only OE brakepads.

My OE tyres Goodyear Assurance have completed 50k kms and have thread enough for another 10k kms. Although road noise has increased a bit but can be lived with for an year before I get new shoes for my Mustang(Creta my white horse).

The sound from the exhaust is the same since purchase (read very soft and almost muted) and same with the engine noise. The cooling of ACC and brakes all work as normal.

Is this normal or should I be taking Panda to ASC?
I had similar hissing sound coming from AC vents which was result of leak in AC discharge hose. Got it changed for Rs1200 at Hyundai ASC and got gas top up along. The noise has gone since then.

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

Crossposting so as to ensure wider visibility. Looking for a carpet mat for my 2015 ( 1st gen ) Creta ( SXO ) in Bangalore. Trident etc don't have for the first gen and the newer ones don't fit my model. What's a good store to pick this up from ( worried about mat obstructing the pedals etc ).

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

Hi,
I own a July 2016, Gen 1 Hyundai Creta SX+ Diesel Automatic. It is nearing 7 years and has 80000 kms on the odometer.

Car has not faced any major repairs. Only routine oil service.

Looking to do a mid-life spruce up, so that i can retain the car for a further 4-5 years.

Points to improve:
1. Vibrations after 100 kmph
2. Jerkiness while moving from P mode to Drive mode.
3. Preventive maintenance for torque converter gear box
4. Braking

Any suggestions and preventive maintenance schedule available? Kindly share. Thank you.

So, the AC issue had resurfaced in January 2023 a couple of times and since February end its frequency have increased. The issue doesn't happen on short trips (less than 50 kms) but on longer trips its regular now. I have been studying the issue and the following are my observations;

At the start of trip (with ACC on):
  • AC blows cold air at 23-24 deg Celsius at all fan speeds. Volume of air blown is directly proportional to fan speed and sound.
  • All modes of AC works fine and volume of air flow is normal according to mode selected and fan speed selected.
  • Some airflow detected through windshield defogger vents even if it is not selected from mode menu.

After driving for a while (with ACC on):
  • The volume of air blown decreases to a bare minimum irrespective of the fan speed. Fan noise is maximum at the maximum speed but very minimal air flow.
  • Whatever little air blown, seems to be just barely cool irrespective of the temp set (Lo to 25deg Celsius).
  • The windshield gets fogged up on the outside around the thermistor/ sensor and also there will be air blowing out of the windshield defogger even if it is not selected from the mode.
  • Switching off the AC for 15-30 mins and turning back on resolves the issue for the nest 50kms- 1 hr period and the same repeats again.

At start of the trip (without ACC/ AC on manual mode):

Same as that with ACC ON.

After driving for a while (without ACC/ AC in Manual mode):

Same as that during ACC ON but with a notable difference that Windshield doesn't gets fogged up even if there is some air flow through the defogger vents.


I have tried different modes when the issue happens but the volume of air blown is minimum at all modes. The air blown is barely cool and spouts of warm air is also blown at times. The air recirculation mode was ON all the time. I tried taking fresh air for while with similar results.

I'm not sure whether this is Thermistor failure, ice build up, low refrigerant, compressor failing or leak in the system. I think I can cross off leak suspicion because if there was one I believe by this time all the refrigerant would have leaked out and the AC wouldn't even cool for 1 hr. I mean its bone chilling at Lo for the first hour.

Anybody have any idea as to what this might be and please suggest good ASS or FNG in and around Trivandrum where I can take my Panda for resolving this issue. Thanks in advance.

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

hi everyone, my father has been driving the 2015 Creta, 1.6 SXO since he got it in October 2015. It has clocked just over 1 lakh kms. A few days ago the speedometer stopped working, while the car's driving absolutely fine.

The Hyundai dealership in Himachal is suggesting we replace the entire sensor system which will set us back by about 17000 INR.

Has anyone experienced this, if yes, what's the most efficient way forward. We wouldn't like to spend too much unnecessarily on an old car.

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

Hi Everyone,

I have a 2015 Creta diesel SX+ variant. after serving us well all these years, the Headunit/ Infotainment system suddenly stopped working. I have taken it to the service center where they had first checked the fuses, and the power cable which were both okay, they ended up concluding that the unit is not working.
they are quoting 40k for a new unit or about 20k to try and repair it. both seem unreasonable given the age of the car
I was wanted to get some opinions on what can be done or if there is a recommended unit to try on the 2015 Creta.

Note: i am not a fan of how most of the aftermarket units don't look cohesive and i am a bit worried about how their software will last/age.

Thanks a lot Naveen!
Took your suggestion and looked for guys to repair the unit. Luckily found one in Delhi and another in Hyderabad as well!. Will be giving it to him tomorrow and hope he's able to fix it. He asked for a week's time though. Hope he's not sending it to Delhi as well lol.
Will keep you guys posted if it's done successfully.
