4th month of ownership review - Hyundai Fluidic Verna CRDi SX 1.6
Distance covered - 10110 KMS
Services Done - 2nd Free Service over
Cost of 2nd Free Service : 5500
Major issues : Nil (But during 2nd service, the SA noticed a damaged rear suspension. Suspension leakage detected. Replaced free of cost under warranty). Real good customer service at Advaith Hyundai - outer ring road, Bangalore.
Minor issues : Squeaking noise from rear suspension after service - will be rectified this weekend. SA promised to fix it.
Mileage : as usual awesome. Depends on how you treat her. Rash and reckless drive, she gives you nightmares, soft and humble on her, she treat you good. Leave her alone on 6th gear, she is just sniff diesel instead of sipping.
City - Averaging at 15.5lts/kms Bangalore Early hours. (8am-9am and 6pm-730pm - moderate traffic)
Highways - always the best figure - 23.6lts/kms (Bangalore - Alleppey via Dindigul)
Engine sound - No change after 2nd service - as new
Pick up - She is very sensitive to quality of Diesel. She hates bad bunks, very lazy attitude on diesels from some bunks.
Damages : Yes, minor scratches on her right Rear mud gaurd, fixed it as Advaith.
Suspension Thud sounds: Adjusted during 2nd service, now GC is much better.
Tryes Rotation : Yes. Spare tyre is now burning some rubber.
Verdict : She is VFM
for me and my brother, who also owns another Verna CDRi SX 1.6. Both the cars are doing well.
My advise : Dont take it too seriously...! Please treat her well, she is an awesome machine. She will start loving you if you start loving first.
My 4 year old son is just in love with her.
Caution : Never put you kid under 10 years of age in the front seat. The Air bag explodes open under tremendous pressure, the force enough to rip of a child's head under the impact of even a minor accident. Please seat them in the rear seat with suitable baby seats. This is not only for Verna, but any car with Airbag.
