black is hot!! i wanted to take it, but to lazy to clean more. a detailed ownership review as well as pictures are awaited raghav enjoy your beast and hope you dont run into issues like me.
well now since no replies from hyundai, guess now i should give out what happened.
i gave my car to service, tuesday morning citing suspension noise, steering column noise as well as jerks when going through potholes at abit higher speed, and front suspension squeaking noise while going through bumps and irregularities at lower speed, and an unacceptable fe of 9-10 kmpl on most tanks driving with 100%ac 90%highway no clutch riding and even tried abit of hyper-milling wherever i could safely just no tailgating, the mid shows 13 15 but manual calculations show something else and dte showing 540kms at tankup and after 100kms fo highway drive its 370kms, and from there on fuel bars keep dropping rapidly. car was taken in at 9 job card made by 9.30 sa says no use waiting it will take time, i have read on another forum that hyundai is replacing spring coils, so i elft the car and came back by 12. and the cars done. n trials done just checked job sheet mechanic comments start time 11 finish 11:45. things done lower arm bolts retorque, engine tune up(includes spark plug clean, throtle body clean, air filter clean) diagnostic with gscan-no errors)
we were unhappy and spoke to the warranty in charge, at first he says there is no tsb issued to us and how can customers get information before we do, he says suspension is fine and has been retorqued to same specification, he says there is no issue but we find there is and the rear keeps swinging and hitting into bumps and causing the shocks transferred into rear passengers backs. according to him hyundai hasnt issued anything besides re torquing, we ask then why is warranty when we have issues you should fix it, hes silent, still says untill hyundai gives us a tsb nothing can be done, we say there is noises check it and he says its fine, then economy i first ask him how much should the car give he says arai under conditions claims 17kmpl so 15 16 is expected, and wheres ours 9-10 kmpl, he says its normal and tells us driving habbits are bad, me and dad drive this car only, dads driven cars since he was my age. and never had issues and always clutch plates lasted over 70k kms. i have four years into driving but never rid the clutch or used it other then gear changes, then he says fo a kit where they will drive and show us the fe, dad said i want it based on how i drive in my other cars with same habbit i always got close to what company claimed, the excuses started, sir its late now etc, i can accept driving habbit if the aveo i drive gives 7 instead fo 11 when company claims 13, verna is fueled up at the same bunks the aveo and other cars are, coco or no coco jambo fe remains same ac usage same aveos fe has been same since day 1, and that car had its head overhauled and machined and now has 1.33lakh kms(daily 130kms usage) with a clutch change at 80k kms.
then went to service manager btw
none of these guys seemed they knew anything of a car. i asked him to either reset my ecu/ reflash it- his reply SAARJI!! only accents and santro ecu can be reset or flashed. fe is normal. dad lost it and asked when buying car why dont they even whisper sir 17kmpl is just to fool the crisp notes out of you and 10kmpl is to make you a bigger fool for the life of this car, matter has been escalated to the regional head, by the service manager and a feedback was promised.
i'd still say i love this car but sorry service guys. my engine oil has slight gasoline smell, oil is below max. i guess thats in limits as manual says max consumption 1l/1500kms while audis says 500mils./1500kms i guess. And there has been a few knocking from the engine after tune up while picking up on1st gear at stops its been few though
