Long-term reliability of Hyundai's diesel engines. Context: I decided to start this thread based on a specific ask from a cousin of mine who owns a Hyundai Fluidic Verna 1. So far his ownership has been niggle free except for the soft suspension issue of the older Fluidic Vernas.
Question Given that the ODO is at 67, kms, he is wondering how much longer he can keep the car for safely in terms of engine life for the 1. Multiple such threads are easily available on team bhp. However, I could not locate similar data points for the Hyundai 1.
Even outside the forums, when we enquire in workshops and pre-owned car outlets, the general response is: "Saar Hyundai diesels will develop problems after 80K and generally last only till 1 lakh". The same guys will vouch and claim that the Honda Engines or the Fiat engines will easily last 2 lakh plus kms easily The intent of this post is to generate some proof points from the TeamBHP community to understand the reality and collect factual data points rather than go by perception.
Requesting the long term owners of the Fluidic Verna to post their experiences more and inputs from the owners of other Hyundai diesels are also welcome.
MODS: If this post needs to be moved elsewhere please do so. Diesel engines in general are pretty robust. There should be no reason for a well maintained Hyundai diesel to give up at 1lakh km. Engine life is a function of how well it is maintained. Ensure regular servicing is done on time, and the engine will outlive the rest of the car.
If you don't change oil and filters periodically or if you let the engine overheat, even the most reputed and reliable diesel engines will give up in not much time.

He has racked up serious mileage on his Creta diesel too without any issues. As per my experience modern diesels Hyundai included can last easily for 2 lakh Kms without major issues. As pointed out by Bhpian Malludude it is the older 1.

Abhijit Maruti Baleno Owner. In today's automobile worldwhat you have asked does not really exists. Shiva Shankar Expert. Hi, The comparision is too generalised.
However as a general rule Fiat engines are best followed by Tata and Maruti Suzuki. Rameez K Abbas Mahindra Owner.
Bobin Antony. Ronak Patel. U know what is better now. Suzuki uses same Fiat engine but some compromise in quality in terms of Turbo and GearBox. DDIS have taller gear ratio means more load on engine at lower speeds so DDIS suffers from gear box issue after 1 lac kms While FIAt uses shorter gear ratiogood turbo and many high quality mechanicals inclusding metal for chasis so Fiat cars lasts very long.
Due to this reasons even service interval of FIA cars are km interval. So in DDIS one will have 10 services done in 1 lac kms while in FIAt only 7 Each service bill in Fiat costs aroung k INR so its preety cheap as compared to Maruti or any other manufacturers Sadly our indian people blindly believe on whats folks say.
Kamal Kumar. S Kumar. Let me tell you. I have clocked 1. Brake pads last for kms, clutch overhauling done at 1. Wish bones and arms are usually changed at alternate services. It is way cheaper than even a Wagon R. You are right Stavan, we Indians will never come out of colonialism. Indians still allow themselves to be fleeced by Maruti despite opening up of markets.
We don't deserve quality and can't appreciate it. I don't ;ile departing with my Punto. For petrol engine maruti suzuki is best. Which Car is best or maruthi cellor or Hyundai eon.To keep your motor or car at its best performance, you must know something about it so that you may take the appropriate actions or measures when things go wrong.
These engines can be suitable for your car, truck, or even passenger automobiles. Common rail direct injection or CRDI is now a widely accepted design for diesel engines. It has a common rail design with the tubes connected to all injectors. This method allows the fuel to combine with air more efficiently.
CRDI serves as the control center of your car, truck, or any motorized vehicle. It is the head which controls several factors.
This includes the amount of fuel to be released, the timing of injection, the timing of the charge, and its pressure within the common rails. According to some relevant studies, CRDI has increased the performance of diesel engines by 25 percent. With this, it also reduces the operation cost. Though CRDI is just a bit more expensive than other diesel engine technologies, you can save a lot in the fuel costs since less fuel is wasted. Turbocharged Direct Injection, or TDI, is a turbo diesel engine design that has the features of turbocharging and cylinder direct fuel injection.
It was developed by the popular Volkswagen Group in Europe. TDI has very selected compatible automobiles, especially for those vehicles produced by Volkswagen. How does TDI work? TDI uses direct injection. As a result, your engine has more power and greater efficiency. TDI has a low surface area which reduces heat loss, thus increasing engine efficiency with minimal combustion noise.
CRDI is a bit more expensive than other diesel engine technologies, but you can save a lot in the fuel costs since less fuel is wasted. Cite Celine.

The models were also exported to European and African countries from late The car was discontinued in April On 30 DecemberTata Motors previously called Telco introduced the most modern car ever to be designed by an Indian company: [ citation needed ] the Indica.
Initially introduced with the caption "More car per car," the ad campaign focused on roomy interiors and affordability. Within a week of its unveiling inthe company receivedorders. Partly designed and developed by Tata Motors, it was a five-door compact hatchback with a 1. This was a homegrown engine derived from the engine used by Tata in their line of pick-ups and SUVs earlier, but with a shortened stroke.
The original engine was designated as DL which stood for four-cylinder and mm stroke. The Indica offered options such as air conditioning and electric windows, which were previously restricted to upmarket imported cars in India. This vehicle ceased production in April when Rover went bankrupt, and did not resume production when Rover's new Chinese owner Nanjing Automobile launched its own versions of the Rover range in The outer body styling was designed by the Italian design house I.
A Instituteunder contract from Tata Motors, in close collaboration interaction with Tata's in-house design team. The engine, however, was indigenous. When first launched, the Indica prompted many complaints from early purchasers, who claimed that the vehicle did not deliver horsepower and gas mileage as promised.
Later, it was again updated, now marketed as the "Refreshingly New Indica V2". Since the V1 and V2, which were visually identical, Tata had applied styling updates to the Indica in  and . Originally offered with 1.

It features 16 valves, double overhead camshaftsa variable geometry turbochargerand an intercooler. A compressed natural gas CNG was launched in With the new system, Tata aims to improve gas delivery and performance. The diesel versions, however, have little or no competition since few diesel cars exist in the Indica's price bracket. The slightly higher-than-average net weight makes for a slightly more comfortable ride compared to lighter cars.
Fit and finish continue be criticised compared to offerings from Fiat and Maruti. During India's Auto Expo in New Delhi, Tata unveiled the Indica Silhouette concept car, a radical, high-performance Indica featuring rear-wheel driveextensive bodywork, and a 3. The Silhouette is currently only a concept vehicle, and is completely different from the standard Indica. The Indica Vista is not a facelift of the Indica. It is built on a completely new platform and shares nothing with the existing Indica.
The Indica Vista has two new Fiat engines,  a 1.Knowing your city will help us provide relevant content to you. We won't support this browser soon. For a better experience, we recommend using another browser.

Soo DICOR is better as it is direct injection with turbo and turbo is only turbo with indirect injection. Posted by Vivek Sagar Thanks for the explanation. If no does TATA having plans to provide it in near future. I purchased the same in 1st week of June It is excellent engine. Milage,pickup,noise all are at its best. Driving comfort is also very good.

Likes: The Tata Indigo is a supermini produced by the Indian manufacturer Tata Motors produced from through It is the four-door saloon version of the Tata Indicaa supermini especially designed for developing countries. InTata released the second generation of the Indigo, called Tata Indigo Manza to distinguish it from the first generation which remained in production.
The first generation of the Indigo, which was launched in the Indian market inis based on the Tata Indicaa subcompact hatchback. The two cars shared a similar design, while the Indigo had a longer wheelbase, a litre trunkand turbo-diesel and petrol engine options. The car received its first design refresh ingiving it distinguishing features from the Indica, such as more upmarket double-barreled headlampsfront fog-lampsmore upmarket interiors with fabric upholstery, etc.
The Tata Indigo went on to form the base platform for three other cars: the Indigo Marina station-wagon  with a large boot and a ski-rack; the Indigo XL, a variant with a longer wheelbase for increased legroom in the second row, air-conditioner vents for the second row, and leather upholstery option; and the Indigo CS, a smaller version with a length of under 4 metres to take advantage of tax benefits for vehicles of that size.
The latter was renamed Indigo eCS after an engine upgrade in The company also continued to sell the Indigo XL, although only as a variant tailored for use as a taxiand sold only in bulk to fleet operators. The first generation Tata Indigo was launched inand was largely based on the Indica.
The two cars shared a majority of their parts. The Indigo had a greater wheelbase than the Indica, to accommodate the more acute-angled C-pillar and the trunk. The front bumper had housings for fog lamps, a feature which the Indica lacked at the time. While the Indica had a 1. The car was also offered with a 1. The interior of the Indigo featured a few exclusives over the Indica, such as HVAC and fabric upholstery on all variants, and power windows for all doors on the top model. The steeper angle of the C-pillars meant that the Indigo lacked a rear windshield wiper.
A minor design refresh in introduced a new 1. InTata Motors introduced the first major design update for the Indigo, with new body panels, a redesigned front grille housing double-barreled headlamps, triangular front fog-lamps, a multi-reflector tail-lamp cluster with dual brake lamps; a newer 3-spoke steering wheel, refreshed dual-tone fabric interiors, and an audio system with a CD player.
Under the hood, it featured a new 1. The added wheelbase translated into increased legroom in the second seating row and a bigger trunk. It retained the 1.User Name Remember Me? The thread however has since been closed. I have a brief question. I own 6 Tata LPT trucks. The old TCIC engine has been upgraded with CRDI and this model costs only 30k more than the older model which will still continue to be available as Tata must believe that early adoption of the newer model will be a problem.
My question however is whether it is possible to now upgrade my older trucks either by retrofitting Crdi injection system or replacing the engine block itself or any other option. I am looking for guidance from the forum as to where I can start with upgrade. Moderator: I hope I have not duplicated another thread.
I did search many times but couldn't find a similar thread. View My Garage. Originally Posted by josephrmathias.

Doesn't TATA have their own facility where one can trade in their engine for a new or a refurbished engine?
I guess that could be worth a try, but as far as electronics are concerned, a lot of changes have to be made. Also, have you taken into consideration that CR engines are more sensitive to fuel quality and it will be expensive to fix? I had once assumed that except for CR only offerings like Volvo, other brands wouldn't go well with CR for a long time.
Would be much cleaner than any conversion. Originally Posted by audioholic.

Its still belt driven and that completely questions the reliability of the system. The engine is just a very very old wine in a so called new bottle of BS IV.
