My Silky Magna i20 CRDi - 30K Kms. 1 Year Review with Pic's

Hey guys,

There were times i used to search all car forums and of GirlFriend (Google [clap]) to find the best one.

I bought car on 23/02/2011. the day after tomorrow would be my car's B'day [clap]

So here is my route map to i20 CRDi.

Shortlisted cars. were diesel only

1. Maruti - Ritz and Swift.

Ritz: Rejected because of the Look of course backside was too irritating and doesn't look smart and sporty.

Swift: Rejected for a single known reason. LOOOONG WAITING PERIOD [frustration]

2. Figo - sporty car but back wheel seems to almost hit the body. so, did not want to fall in swamp.

3. Punto - FIAT ASS was tooooo good to reject.

4. POLO - VERY VERY high maintenance cost but not premium hatch.

5. Micra - Car doest not seems to be worthy for 7 lacs.

6. i20 - The End.

Selection was not easy for i20 too.
known issues for it was

1. Steering rattles

2. Poor A/C

3. High maintenance cost

4. New version may be anytime in the market {Thank god its still coming}

Positives were:

1. Smart and sporty look - Compromised

2. A Big hatch - comfortable for 5 adults.

3. Awesome interiors

4. Features.

Ok will update more about the performance much sooner.

1 year - 32000 KMS - Isn't that bad.



UPDATE:

I wanted to share my maintenance records. But worst part was that i kept the bills somewhere safe, but forgot the safe place. Hope i find it at the earliest. Will surely update the maintenance record.

The suspension was too soft that, I could hear thud sounds while going on bad roads.

Mileage:


It was truly satisfying one for me regarding mileage wise. I have 6-speed one, So mileage was as follows,

City: 13 KMPL { FULL A/C }

Highway: 19-21 KMPL {Full A/C - 90 -100 kmph} : High speed: Touch 160 KMph { Mielage: Dropped to 14 KMPL }

Regarding pics.:

I have too many pics to upload. It's annoying to add each pic with URL's.

So, to check out pics please visit Hyundai i20 CRDi Magna blog I have created for my car.

Nice review buddy. A few pics will do justice to this thread.

Hows the mileage and service costs of the car?

1yr= 32000kms.

Woah! It took me 3 yrs on my alto to complete some 30000kms (Lesser than that)

My city has done only 6565kms in 1 Yr!

Buddy, If the size of the pic is too big. Then crop the pic so that only your car is visible. Hope it helps. Otherwise, Try to compress the pics(Files) and then Upload them!

Anyways, Nice pics! I thought the colour to be Sleek Silver , But its Some BEIGE shade. Isnt it?

Welcome to our Automotive home, "The Automotive India".

Needless to say your silver angel is looking uber cool. However, you can turn her into a beauty with some after market add ons like pillar taping, alloy wheels and a lip spoiler.

@Akash. Thanks mate..

since its been just a year with my car.. don't want to spoil performance atleast a year or so...

Yep, i'm planning to get spoilers and other stuff.

Hey Guys,

I think i have lost one of my service bills.

Is there any way to get a copy of the bill.

Can i approach the service station..?

I would like to keep trace the maintenance cost of my vehicle.

Thanks.

Your service station would probably have a record of that. You can ask for a copy.
