If you are planning to buy any of KIA car then the following article is just for you. In this, I am sharing my experience with KIA Seltos after driving it for more than 16000Kms and using it for 1.5 Years.
For viewers convenience, I’ve divided the blog into multiple parts i.e. Service Experience, Parts Cost, Reason why I bought KIA Seltos, Pros and Cons. Let me explain to you all the points one by one.
KIA Seltos Service Experience
My Experience with KIA Workshops is average. from a rating of 1-10 where 10 is the best and 01 being the lowest, I would rate it as 7. In the first car service, I paid zero amount. The Second car service workshop charged me Rs 450/- approx. As wheel alignment charges.
In the 3rd service, I paid Rs 3,500/- Approx. For the Engine oil change and Filters change. Labour charges were free. both first and second car service was really good indeed I got free just in 03 hours and all the service was done in front of me.
But in The third Service, I felt a little upset as I waited for my car to wash. Workshop guys were not following the sequence. Also, they were kind of fighting with each other. Watching them verbally fighting was really making me feel bad.
KIA Seltos Parts Cost
Part cost is really affordable. For example, if you have an auto foldable mirror and you want to change the indicator of your ORVM. Then the cost of the Indicator is Rs 900/- approx. Similarly, the black plastic cladding around wheels costs Rs 700/- approx. Affordable parts cost gives peace of mind to the owners.
Reason why i purchased KIA Car
For a long time, I was planning to upgrade my self from a hatchback to a mid-size SUV. Before finally buying KIA Seltos I considered TATA Harrier, MG Hector and Ford EcoSport. I really liked the TATA Harrier Model but the kind of features I was looking i.e. Auto foldable ORVM, Android Auto, DRL etc. were only coming in higher trims and they were costing me a lot more money.
In MG Hector inside cabin space was really awesome. But I was looking for a car to which I can daily drive without taking much stress about fuel economy. Due to less mileage and dropped MG hector from my list.
I also tried my hands with Ford EcoSport somehow I not felt positive post taking the test drive of the car. there were multiple reasons behind i.e. EcoSport is coming with the same body structure for a long time, Ford Mahindra partnership and rumours about ford future in India. And low inside cabin Space.
Hence after considering 03 cars finally I opted for KIA Seltos.
