Anyways there's a dead rat in the car[cry] can't take the car for service , couldn't find the bloody thing anywhere. Must be inside the dashboard. Any ideas what to do ?

Got the car serviced today. Odo near 28xxx.
Engine oil Castrol 5w30 synthetic 4 liters - 2300rs
Oil filter - 200rs
Air filter and ac filter - have ordered from a shop.
The cabin filter I ordered from boodmo is half the height of original filter. I don't think height will matter , other dimensions are same.
Coolant was color less so drained it and poured 2 liters of coolant rest water(5.9 liter total) will check the coolant level again since only 2 liters of water went in.

The level in the reservoir is a little above high mark but the mechanic said it will come down on its own ?

Relative who owns the tyre shop suggested me to take the car to his ac guy and glad that I did.
He first checked for the dead rat near the blower and then under the armrest. (Check the bite marks on the glove compartment) Took him just 20 minutes to open everything and there it was with all the junk. Socks , rubber bands paper , tissues and what not. Got it thoroughly cleaned and he charged 1000rs. (Hyundai advisor asked 8500rs to open the dashboard and 6500rs to check the floor carpets) Gave 100rs to the guy who took care of the rats and the maggots :vomit:
Got the car vacuumed and washed the mats.

Another day another problem.
Someone broke the rear windshield by a stone I think. Don't really know what reason he had to break the windshield.

Gave the car to windshield experts. Unity Hyundai don't have any parts available readily and always say will take 10 days for the part to reach.

@allhyundaicars with both my Verna and i20 I always gave them my oil even in warranty they never fussed about it, one time a new advisor did I simply said this is stated in the manual, my oil exceeds these specifications as well as exceed the specification of oil used here which was api-sl or sm 15w40
Never had an engine issue or warranty issue
