      Finding fellow Tuscon owners is gonna be a challenge for you

      In a few years, I plan to buy a pre-loved full-size SUV. It can be anything from the Rexton to a Tuscon to an Endeavour to a M-class to a Santa Fe (or even the Yeti). Let's hope we are able to match cars then

      11th service completed today, at 107,500 kms. My previous oil was semi-synthetic and hence ran it for 7,500 kms.

      Things done:
      1. Replaced engine oil (fully synthetic, will run it for 15,000 kms)
      2. Replaced engine oil filter
      3. Cleaned air filter
      4. Cleaned AC filter

      Issues reported: None

      AC went totally kaput.

      Replaced the blower motor, thorough 'chemical' cleaning of the cooling coil and refilling of gas. Total damages at Rs. 8,000.

      Had a similar issue with my Ritz 3 years ago, cost me also 9k
      Worked fantastic after that

      Yes, same here. The AC is working brilliantly after the repairs. And that too in the crazy summer heat we are all facing this year!

      Things change and life doesn't always go as planned.

      I have not been using my Honda City as much as I had originally planned to. And no, I am not selling it
      And my Hyundai Santro is pretty much retired and is used by my father to visit the park every evening. Like that is the only use.

      My Honda City has been driven for 1,200 kms in the past 10 months and my Hyundai Santro has been driven for not even 500 kms in the same period.
      On the other hand, my Maruti Ritz has been munching miles. Close to 50,000 kms a year.

      I had filled my City with Mobil 1 fully-synthetic engine oil. Typical life of such an engine oil is 15,000 kms.
      For my Santro, I had filled it with Shell mineral oil, which has a life of 5,000 kms.

      I replace the engine oil once a year, irrespective of the usage.

      And rather than wasting these hardly used engine oils, I plan to store it when I get it replaced. And will use it in my Ritz as per its service schedule.

      As on date, my City's engine oil has 13,800 kms and Santro's engine oil has 4,500 kms of life left in it. Money saved, is money earned

      I replaced the Santro's engine oil after a year and having used it for less than 500 kms. And the engine oil was UNBELIEVABLY BLACK. That too for a petrol car.
      And it felt like an absolutely different car with the fresh engine oil. So I decided to discard the 'hardly used' engine oil, rather than use it in my Ritz.

      The front right wheel required its ball bearing to be replaced at 118,000 kms.
      My FNG is extremely trustworthy and even though I was of the opinion that I should get it replaced for all four wheels, he told me that its not required.

      So got it replaced for only one wheel. And replaced three fused bulbs. Total damages were Rs. 1400/-
