I've a Hyundai Santro Xing XG bought in March 2005, it has done 38,000 km. A couple of days back when I went for pollution check the car emanated black soot. Today when I took the car again to the service center at Austin Hyundai in Baishanabghata Patuli township in Kolkata black fumes emanated again and the engine oil seemed black as the service advisor indicated. He has taken the car and indicated that an engine overhaul is needed and piston might be needed. The estimate given is Rs. 25k and would take 10 days plus. My thoughts are that at 7 years and 38,000 km, an engine overhaul reflects very poorly on Hyundai Santro. The car has been serviced regularly, the most recent being Sept 2011. I'm trying to get any contact from Hyundai also with whom I can check but to no avail. There website has a form which I've filled but the service center is not listed out there. Anyone experienced in this regard and any suggestions please?
