Welcome to Carwale!
Hyundais, especially Santros, had this problem of the engine revs not coming down immediately after the accelerator is released. Hyundai had no answer. I found that if you reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, this problem goes away temporarily but comes back after a few days. Now it seems that the i-10 AT is having this problem. Try resetting the ECU and post the results. Also get the air filter cleaned. How long since your last service?

I have been facing similar problem with my Hyundai i10 automatic(2009) since last month. The car is driven abt 13k kms. One fine day I started feeling that when I slow down my car the RPM does not coming down post I apply break(clutch+break as the car is automatic). The engine also makes noise as the gear is still stuck in the higher gear. After few minutes the RPM comes down to normal. This keeps occurring every now and then. But the first 10-15minutes of drive does not have this problem, this issue starts after that. Also If I switch off the engine, then the ignition does not happen immediately,It takes few cranks to get it started and once started I have to leave it for sometime then shift it to 'Drive' mode otherwise the engine gets switched off. I went to Hyundai service station, explained the issue, they could not find out the root cause. I had left the car for 7 days and they found that ignition coil was faulty and they replaced the part(which costed 2k). Now again the issue persists and they don't have an answer for that. Already the fuel efficiency is very bad for this vehicle, now due to this issue, I assume it will be even worse. Please some one help me to identify this issue.

Jansi, welcome to Carwale! How long have you been driving a car? If you are a newbie, then you can use your left foot for braking. But practice it for sometime on a ground or some other place where there is no traffic. If you have been driving cars for long, it is dangerous to use your left foot for the brake because your mind is conditioned with 'right foot for brake, left foot for clutch'. You may think that you are comfortable with left foot for the brake but in an emergency, you will not have time to think and if left foot is used, it may not generate sufficient force (as it had been used for clutch in the past). The situation can turn dangerous for the occupants of the car and others. My advice would be to use the right foot for both. BTW, I also drive an automatic, but an A-star.

I recently bought the Hyundai i10 AT car. I overall like the car. One problem I am facing is that the accelerator and brake are little far from each other. I was expecting to use the right foot for both, but currently I am using right foot for accelerator and left for brake. Anybody had same issue? Any help is appreciated.

I have a minor ligament related pain in my left wrist which comes up 6 months & goes away in a week... m buying a car this month & am seriously considering an automatic transmission... my budget was 4L & right now i10 magna AT 1.2Kappa seems like the only option.
I drive about 1200km in a month & need CNG as a fuel option.
Anyone driven a CNG automatic?
Anyone else except ripdaman who drives an automatic small car?
