Hyundai Creta out of the Park SP: four major drawbacks

In the comments to the materials you often accuse us of excessive love for Crete. In fact, positive in operation of this machine is really a lot. However, despite the lack of any serious faults, for 30,000 km appeared a few unpleasant moments. Today we are talking only about them.

Began to peel the wheel

In the previous report, mileage 20 500 km, we mentioned that the leather on the steering wheel beginning to Shine. After 5000 km the situation has seriously worsened: the padding began to appear bald spots, and the wheel finally lost the presentation. As shown by the study of the situation, the problem affected not all owners of this model, but our case is not unique. It happened that the steering wheel started to peel even before that — on runs in the region of 15 000 km. However, the vast majority of the affected dealers do not deny warranty replacement of the steering wheel. And in this situation, we were no exception.

The wheel of healthy person and the steering wheel smoker (mileage 30 000 km). There is a different texture of the upholstery. I’m sure the factory has already figured out the problem of the vendor and of new parties the problem will not recur.The wheel of healthy person and the steering wheel smoker (mileage 30 000 km).

New steering wheel we were delivered straight from St. Petersburg plant Hyundai Manufacturing Rus. Shabby old was taken to explore the reasons. After a month of official response we have received, but we were promised that the necessary steps will be taken. One thing is clear: the problem is the quality of material used for finishing the helm. Calloused hands or habit to rotate the steering wheel in the Parking lot with one hand. This can speed up the process of deterioration, but even in the most severe conditions, the skin should not turn into rags so quickly.

The cabin settled “crickets”

At the time of the last report there were no signs of abnormal sounds in the cabin, but closer to the mileage of 30 000 km in the Central area of the tunnel settled the whole multitude “of the crickets”. Extraneous sounds usually appear in the cold season, but our declared himself, even when stayed behind zero temperature. Such symptoms complains, many owners of Crete. The recipe solution for everybody. Some go to the dealer and insist on warranty eliminating extraneous sounds. Others dismantled the console and glued all the potentially problematic areas with a special material like biplast. Someone just makes the music louder. Each method definitely has a right to exist.

The first “crickets” started up in the area of the Central tunnel on the mileage from 28 to 29 thousand km In the rest of the interior like new. Of course, not counting the peeling steering wheel.The first “crickets” started up in the area of the Central tunnel on the mileage from 28 to 29 thousand km In the rest of the interior like new.

The fifth door still rust

You repeatedly asked us about the status of the fifth door of the drafting machine and we answered that everything is in order. Now the situation has changed. Visible to the naked eye there are no lesions so far, but after a thorough inspection of the door during the preparation of large material investigation we found four subtle plot with swollen paint. The diameter of the largest is about 5 mm.

The problem of corrosion of the fifth door touched our car. The edge under the glass, we found four small pockets with a swelling of the paint coating. The thickness of the coating 100 with a small micron — adequate. Absolutely trouble-free on the edge of the hood is exactly the same.The problem of corrosion of the fifth door touched our car.

Unfortunately, the official representatives of Hyundai and here chose to abstain from commenting, though the problem is more serious peeling rudders. Hope it’s just a desire not to wash dirty linen in public and that measures to eliminate the reasons for the low corrosion resistance of the fifth door will be taken in the near future. Or already taken. As soon as more details come out we definitely will answer them.

Pressure sensors in the tires sometimes go crazy

Pressure sensors in the tires can go crazy on level ground: 2.1 the atmosphere in the left wheel — bad, right — right. To reset a fault can only way to swap wheels.Pressure sensors in the tires can go crazy on level ground: 2.1 the atmosphere in the left wheel — bad, right — right. To reset a fault can only way to swap wheels.

Even the simplest designs, the Crete is the fact that without air conditioning and Luggage racks — put the pressure sensors in the tires. Sounds good, but in fact benefit from them little more than problems. Our car glitches of pressure sensors started with the first serious cold snap. Should the pressure in the cold tires to drop just below 2.2 atmosphere (under recommended 2,3), the system displays on the instrument panel error reset… which can only inflate the tires. It turns out just like the story “the Boy and the wolves”: an error is displayed frequently and carry no useful information. Just an empty experience for the person behind the wheel.

The two-litre 150-strong “four” Nu G4NA appetite consumes 92nd gasoline, but in the same driving modes turns on a couple of liters of hungry Junior 1.6-liter engine. In the urban cycle, the flow may reach 13.5–14 liters per hundred. The average consumption for the whole period of our operation made of 11.75 l/100 km. two-liter 150-strong “four” Nu G4NA appetite consumes 92nd gasoline, but in the same driving modes turns on a couple of liters of hungry Junior 1.6-liter engine.

Unfortunately, the wording of “driving” had to say goodbye to Kretol. But this does not mean that more you will not hear. In one of the next issues of the journal we are preparing a parting, you talk about fuel consumption, operating costs and much more. After some time this material will appear on the website.

And Yes — to replace the Crete comes another car, to tell and hear about which, in our opinion, will be no less entertaining.
