Longtermer 5:Hyundai i10 1.25 CVVT - 40th month Vol.6

Longtermer 5:Hyundai i10 1.25 CVVT - 40th month Vol.6

 In this Blog entry, I'm updating my Ownership experience of the Hyundai i10 1.25 CVVT.  This is the 40th month I owned the i10.

Last Update March 2016.  Since then, the i10 sent to Replace Radiator Pipe, Changed Single Belt and Lastly changed Radiator Fan Motor and Waterpump (the last 2 changed under warranty).  Thank God warranty claim's simple and straightforward as long as you follow the Routine Scheduled Maintenance.  The Waterpump rejected once, because only 3 years or 60,000km warranty but I appeal as my Mileage back then only 34,000km and car only 37th month. 

 This is a Solid car with decent soundproofing, Great Ride and handling and high speed stability.  Test drive to agree with me.  There's a reason behind...

Apparently the i10's Engineered, designed and tuned in India.  This is to meet Indians requirements.  This explained the Robustness of the chassis and suspension.  Built to take on Indian Roads...  If the i10 can survive Indian Roads, then Malaysian road conditions are piece of cake.   

Note that our i10s are CKD, but the CKD pack Came from INDIA.  The i10's only produced in 3 countries and NONE are Korea.  It's Kulim, Malaysia, Chennai India and Mexico.

Other Major expenses are Vinyl Wrapping the Bonnet and Front Grille garnish.  Before:




 Total Damage: 
1) ORACAL White Carbon Fibre: RM90.  From Kray_Keigo
2) Red Grille, and labour @ RS-Sticker Wrap RM200.

Without further ado, let's proceed to Logbook:
