My dealer (HYD -KUN UNITED) just confirmed that the gear shift indicator comes only on the diesel versions (and that too in the new models) and not in the petrol models.

But some of our members are saying they are seeing it in the petrol version too.

Can some one clear the confusion please ?

It's a wrong info. I have a i20 petrol sportz version. The car has the manual trans-axle shift indicator. However, I'm not sure about any lower end models. Sandipan can confirm about this too.

sure Soori! the gear shift indicator is avilable across all the variants in i20 new models. u can also see that in the company brocure as a new feature.

its a really useful tool as the engine is very silent and one needs to keep in mind to upshift and downshift in a new car.

PraVas u can tell the your workshop to look into it.  if you want i can give you the hyundai head office number where you can ask the same.

Thanks.

I have i20 Magna(P), it is having this feature. its the gear number appears along with a down/up arrow in the left end of the ODO. It appears only if you drive in wrong gear(just to guide) ie, if you are in 3rd gear where the engine expects a 2nd gear the display shows "2" with a down arrow means to shift the gear to 2. In the same way, if you are driving in 3rd gear say above 40 kms.. the display shows 4 with up arrow. The display need not appear if you drive in correct gear always. Smile

PraVas, Pls contact the dealer and see wat dealer says. I guess this was not noticed by the dealer during their inspection.

I think sarath was rite. The non-display had more to do with my driving style than with the car. I wasnt revving enough in the lower gears to see the display. So yeterday i really revved hard on 1st gear and saw what i wasnt seeing. The ODO showed uparrow & gear 2 and then uparrow and gear 3.

Then i shifted upto gear 4 and slowed down very much to feel the knocking,and then saw the downarrow and gear3.

Anyways, thanks all of you for your feedbacka and responses, and we have proved again this forum knowledge is simply better than an experienced salesman's knowledge.

Reflects badly on hyundai's part on not updating their sales guys properly.

This is a very nice feature, i20 Manual says this to guide us for a fuel efficient driving. By the way what is the mileage you are getting at the moment ?

Am along with you. I think there is the need of sport lamp ( fog lamp). But, Rs 15000 is very steep at the moment. I really cant understand why hyundai couldn't provide a provision to fit the light instead of changing the whole bumper?

Hello wildon,

Got an issue. I've i20 sportz 1.2 kappa. Recently, during the first service, I had enabled the autolock feature. It works like a charm once it crosses 40km/hr. However, I've noticed an issue. I am not able to open the front doors once the door is locked above 40km/hr. However, the rear passengers can unlock and OPEN the door when the car is above the said speed. Have anyone noticed this, or is this an issue with only my car?

Please help

In my ASTA too, i think the headlights are bad..but with the fog lamps it improves the situation.

But arent the FOG lamps for hazy situations and not for all the time ?

In that case the lights are bad then

Hello wildon,

Please help



I havent enabled this feature yet. Iam currently doing a manual lock on the driver side, once Iam inside. This locks all the other 3 doors too.

But looks like yours is more a safety feature than an issue. Just thinking aloud.

Thanks wildon. This feature is annoying. If this is an issue with auto lock feature, I've to revert this to manual locking.

PraVas,

Hold it for 3 to 5 seconds. It should work. And also, could you please check the rear door locking functionality, once the front door is manually locked?

Thanks wildon. This feature is annoying. If this is an issue with auto lock feature, I've to revert this to manual locking.

I was able to open the driver and passenger doors beyond 40 kmph. Was not able to check at rear.

If you try to unlock the door after 40 kmph its again locks automatically.

It worked. Thanks.

You mean the boot door ? It locks when i locked the front door manually.

The back passenger door also lock. But again the passenger can open the door, without driver side intervention. I dint understand this feature.

@PraVas,

All central locking works in the below mentioned fashion. ie, you can lock/unlock all the doors using driver's lock. This will not stop other passengers in unlocking / locking from their respective door locks.

I believe this is the functionality with every central locking system available in the market.

By the way, I have fitted Cross Link remote locking system for my i20 Magna

Wildon,

Had an inquiry? What is the optimum pressure for both the tire. As mentioned, in the sticker, I stick to 33 even if I'm the only one driving the car. I guess this is the reason it returns good mileage, though the ride is bumpy.

Is it okay to bring it down to 30? If yes, any issues towards the tire or suspension?
