You guys must be shocked hehe

Just yesterday only my case with income department got cleared which means i am free no longer have to worried . SO this means i can buy new car .

First i thought of buying Safari VX 4X4 but then thought let World SUv and Tata Merlin get released then will see which one is better else VX 4X4 will come home .

So till then i need a ride for my work as we were facing problem because of shortage of cars

Expect any New SUV in January [evil]

till then this thing will keep me Happy


Now about this Car .
Its 2005 Hyundai Accent GLS Silver Model
It has covered only 18k till now

Few thing i notice
1. Alignment work is needed
2. When pressing Clutch some small sound or very little comes don't know what is it
3. Some Metal sound are coming could be suspension will get it checked
4. Viper need urgent replacement they have become very hard

Re: Hyundai Accent

thanks

Guess what i found in my car while it was getting install HOOTER [evil]
I made mechanic to fix it . Time for some illegal sounds :biggrin:

I must say pick-up is very Good as soon as i press accelerator i can feel extra gravity force on me

But Seat not comfortable at all compare to safari . I think i need better seat cover to fix that issue


Update:

Today i got CNG installed in my accent
Total Cost : Rs.28000
Kit Company : lovato
Performance Loss : around 2%


Did tried OBD on it . It connected with it but couldn't get all data . Well what else you expect from OLD car

Got alignment done
cost = Rs.300

Metal sound i found was because of loss metal lying in boot fixed by keeping them properly


Now Viper and that clutch sound is remaining to fix .


Guys engine oil was changed one year ago and car has completed 1k only . So do i change engine oil or not ?

Yes exactly the same feeling when i started driving Verna after Safari. The pick-up , performance and speed will be amazing compared to Safari but not even a little close to Safari's comfort. I even felt slight backpain for the first few days in my Verna but later now my body got used to it.


I would suggest changing the oil because the oil inside must be only mineral oil which wont last for 1 year. Do change the wiper blade also soon.

also oil smell little burned up :/ . i think for peace of mind i will change it
whenever you get a used car always for your satisfaction do the following:

Replace spark plugs
Engine oil change
Air filter change
Oil filter change
Transmission oil change and service for faults
Engine gaskets check
exhaust sensor (if any) check
Steering oil / brake oil check
Brake pads check
Tyres check and check the nuts
Differential Service - IF RWD car
Timing belt/Chain check (if any)

I do these things when I import cars from Japans. Just for my satisfaction.

You have found a neat example, it seems. I think you are also planning to perform subtle modifications. It’ll look even better with them.

Drive Safe,
