Turbo failures can come as early as taking the car out of delivery (mostly seen in earlier batches of Hyundais ) and as late as 2L-3L km (toyotas , its rare )
The main issue in India is our quality of diesel and also driving patterns (not to be confused with driving habit ) - say a driver uses the car for a short trip of 3-5 kms daily or say a driver uses the car for a long drive of 50kms with stops at each 10km ) , the shut off and ignition , each time can show affects on engine and also turbo , and this effect is reduced by how the manufacturers tune their car to Indian condition (Hyundais still haven't done that right ) .
Fiat sourced engines , more often show issues mostly with high pressure and low pressure pumps , turbo failure is rare , but cant deny too .
So it's dropping every day. Today it reached further low. I am talking about the cold wave in my city,and all of north India.
This is not the min temperature, but the daytime one.My colleague asked me jokingly,would I go to nainital for new year celebrations."Who cares?" was my reply.Why will I torture myself more?,I added.Its nainital everywhere in North India!
I do appreciate your concern,and will thank you for that but I am a scared sort of person in these matters.
Which additive will do what,(good or bad)to my car engine, I do not know.My knowledge is limited here.
Will OEM recommend it? I don't think so.None of them ever do and it's never in the manual.
Should I try it on my car without proper previous experience and knowledge? No, only if someone near me first tries it on his car. I do not want to be guinea pig,you see.
But still thank you again,because you intended good.
I understand your concern Mayankji, I also have the same perspective as yours , not being a test dose . In Merc , BMW"s and moreover quite recently seen in Mahindra Alturas , they have this winter mode option . I think what it does is a kind of prewarming up (Like the old days , heater setup in Ambassadors) - Kindly enlighten me , those who know winter mode does.
Best alternative Mayankji is
1. Don't use the ride until temperature comes around 10degC.
2. Else change the engine oil to winter suited condition (Based on Viscosity rating). Assuming your oil maybe 5W30 - Its suited for low temperatures , as if am right , lower the index , better suited for low temerature condtions . But I don't know for how much degrees of temperature , this spec maybe suited , experts do comment.
@mayankdixit , sardi ney band baja diya hai Just imagine, in Noida & NCR, temperature in early morning and nights is going around 2-3 Degrees. At daytime yesterday around 12:00 noon it was 7. Now, do you have a remedy to take care of inner fogging of windows? Can't think of opening a slit due to the chill and driving becomes tough due to the fogging of windows from inside.

I never got the time to use shampoo and toothpaste and what not for the windshield and windows. Looked up at the owners manual for the solutions and then simply started using front and rear defogger routinely. All problems solved
Me and my Nexon ,both are enjoying the sunlight and rise in warmth in the climate.
Meanwhile the battery started to play the spoilsport.Its only 2 years and cranking problem arose this sunday.Its tied up with a synthetic fibre+cloth type material.
On inspection I found out that battery is Amaron with 6 ports for topping up with DW.
