  1. Ashikawa, you are spot on. One guy from gujrat just escaped an accident. He has gone to consumer court. I will update you all regarding his hearings. Hyundai is not at all serious regarding this problem This is a serious flaw in Hyundai vehicles. Since they are yet to master the art of EPS, they have this flaw. Due to this Hyundai has lost almost 50 customers from Pune. I really feel that one should not put his/her hard earned monies in any hyundai product. By the way I also have i10 asta and dont want other fellow members to go through this.
  2. Hyundai doesn't have a solution for their classic "Steering Rattle" problem on both i10's and i20's. Also it seems that the top management does not pay any heed to any consumer complaint in regards with this issue. I have seen couple of guys have gone to consumer court. Lets wait for the same. IMHO, whats the use of launching newer models and face lift's if they are not able to solve MAJOR issue?
  3. I did get discounts up to 29000.00 INR. I always drive with AC 100% on New i10 has a darker dash, hence it wont be that troublesome.
  4. +1 to all above. HOPE, they will fix the steering rattle which is on 99.999% i10's and i20's. The senior management from Hyundai is also washing off their hands from this issue as there is no permanant solution. It looks like a design flaw. I had raised this issue with autocar also but in vain.
  5. it gives me 12 -13 with 100% AC in city. 18-19 on highways with 100% AC. Mileage calculated by tankful method.
  6. Hi, My vehicle is due for insurance renewal. Wanted to know which one is the best and are there any offers on same. I live in Pune. Insurance choices are, bajaj Allianz ICICI Lombard TATA AIG Do let me know your suggestions.
  7. Took TD of Ritz Vdi this Sunday. Really good car in terms of power. Only big let down is that Maruti doesn't offer something like Zdi. What's the use of power without safety? It only has ABS and that too as an option.
  8. I have seen this car in Pune and agree with durango that interiors are big let down. If I had to buy, I would rather choose Captiva LTZ auto over Santa Fe. Also Hyundai's customer service is deteriorating day by day.
  9. Yesterday I got a call from West region Office from Ms Swapna. (Contact Number --912240969000 saying that we will look into it. Then I asked for her senior contact, where she fumbled and I threatened her to go to consumer court. Here are some points from this email You had signed the delivery note at M/S Kothari Hyundai clearly accepting the terms and conditions of agreement of the delivery. (Delivery signed note in possesion of the dealer). Amit -- Everyone signs such documents. However the cheated person comes to know after he has been cheated. This doesnt mean the case should be rested. Thats the reason Consumer Court service is available. Also in India people are not aware otheir rights hence such problems occur. Just imagine, I was in US and have had filed a complaint agains hyundai. Amit -- This was never answered. Stupid political answer was sent. THIS IS NOT SOLVED AND I NEED THIS. The first complaint I put in was around october 3rd 2009 to be precised. Ms shweta replied back saying, we will see. As I mentioned a political answer, nothing concrete. May we also clarify that as per the terms and conditions of the warranty policy
  10. Dear All, I purchased my i10 auto asta 10 months before. However, I had series of problems, 1. Immobilizer missing 2. Steering rattle 3. rack noise and now fresh one LEAKAGE in sunroof. Most strange thing is A.S and .S. guys in Pune dealer don't know how to fix the problem. I had asked autocar also to take this matter with hyundai. However in vain. I am really frustrated and moreover helpless. Do let me know if you have any good suggestions.
  11. Thanks Doctor. Just let me know whether I am correct for -- Planning to go for 5.5J alloys with PCD=100 and offset=38, Keeping the same stock tires.
  12. Well my mistake. Its Palio 1.6 sports The tires were washed. amiti2010-07-21 10:23:19
  13. Gear knob Keyless entry Good ORVMS Stereo is good for car of this size Sunroof -- No option, but comes by default on asta version Sunroof from inside of car Skinny car tire -- Doesnt really go with the car. Planning for alloys of 13" and 175/70 R13 tires from michelin Weak headlamp. However using the headlamp levelling device I am able to change the focus.
  14. Car exteriors Car exterior 2 Interiors Leather seats Leather seats rear Odo clocked till today
  15. I will try to keep it short and sweet. Exactly a year ago, I started the hunt for a new car. Based on my requirements I decided for a petrol hatch. Though I did consider ANHC automatic. The options considered at that time (a year ago) were, Skoda fabia 1.2 elegance
  16. Both cars are equally good. Also heard that new i10 will be launched next month. If you can wait for a month and then compare both cars, you will be able to judge better.
  17. Ritz zxi is the way to go buddy. My cousin opted for it after driving my i10 which has the steering rattle. Ford figo is old fiesta which I have driven abroad. So its a no no. I own i10 automatic, however the steering rattle has put me off. Otherwise its a nice car. Also Hyundai is not doing enough to rectify this problem.
  18. on bad roads only or while going through potholes, broken speedbreakers, there is a dhar dhar kind of metal noise. This comes from the steering column itself.
  19. rssh, nice car and pics. Took a TD of crdi i20 asta today and I must say, nice car with good power. Also the mileage people are getting are good with this car. Regarding steering rattle, this problem is on all i10 and i20. May be they would have solved with this 6 speed vehicle, and on new i10 which IMHO, they are planning to launch next month end. I have urged autocar india to take our case forward with hyundai for this steering rattle.
  20. @sbalto -- regarding fuel efficiency -- If any potential customer asks about mileage of i10 auto these guys direct their queries to me. Options for wheels -- 1. getting 13" 5J alloys and fitting them with same stock tires 155/80 R13 would be a wise decision? 2. And then when the stock tires worn out, then maybe replace it with 165/65 or 70 R13? Dont know, do let me know. 3. Replace stock tires with 165/65 R13 on same steel rims whose width is 4B. Need inputs. amiti2010-07-10 17:46:22
  21. I had also narrowed down to garware ice cool shield. However all experienced members advised against front windshield. I wanted to install to see whether the glare of dash would be reduced
  22. Thanks everyone. I agree to all of you that changing the original stuff would not be a good idea. Looks like I will have to live with it.
  23. Thanks dr_nishu. I drive my car in and around Pune and roads are bad here. I have seen most of the i10's above 20k which rattles. Regarding fuel efficiency, the dealer has given my contact details and after my assurance, I have seen people buying lots of automatic i10. However the steering rattle is troubling me a lot. Regarding tires, is 175/70 R13 an overkill? Do let me know if anyone is experiencing problems with 175 section of tires. Also do you know what should be the width of alloy for 13". is it 5 or 5.5
  24. Dear Autocar members, moderators. Writing this post on behalf of all i10, i20 owners ( I own i10 auto asta). The classic hyundai problem of "steering rattle" is troubling us all. Though I got it fixed by applying a special grease from hyundai, I am again getting this noise, though not as intense as it was before. 90% of i10 and i20 are having this problem. however no one from hyundai is able to help us all in this regards. Hyundai is ignoring this problem. I request autocar to take this issue further and force hyundai to either, 1. recall all faulty cars 2. refund back entire monies 3. stop potential buyers from buying hyundai i10 and i20 cars.
  25. Dear All, I got a hint from rssh yesterday that instead of putting a dash cover, can I paint the upper part of dash with non glossy black paint? Do let me know if this is a practical solution or any other options are available to resolve this issue. amiti2010-07-09 05:55:48
