Is there anybody with feedback on the diesel model(s) of the Getz.
A number of reviews have been pretty unkind - noisy , unrefined etc.
What do actual owners/users think?

I dont own a diesel model GETZ, but rather A Diesel MATRIX 1.5 CRDi VGT, deivering 75Kw Power (102 BHP). I understand there is new model of GETZ with same engine so my comments may be applicable - waiting to test drive such a GETZ.

This new diesel technology engine with Common Rail Direct injection, is quieter, with less vibration and yet delivers more p[ower and better fuel consumption than 'standard' diesel engines, even with Turbo Chargers. The Diesel engine as fitted in my Matrix has Variable Geometry Turbine turbo charger, which if I have understood offers the low turbi lag of small turbo charges initially yet delvers more power of large turbo's when the power comes in.

Put it this way, it is only 1.5l, yet delivers almost same Poer as 2.5l ISUZU Crosswind Turbo! In my Matrix on a long run with 4 adults and luggage, with aircon on all the time, some journeys over mountains, and over 120kph on good roads it did 430 Km on 50l of diesel. Ignoring the 20km or so with low fuel warning on, this means just over 16km per litre fuel consumption. It accelerates well from 2000rpm with performance on par with most 2l gasoline saloon cars.

That is why I am keen to try a GETZ model with same 1.5l CRDi VGT engine as lower weight of GETZ compared to MATRIX should mean even better performance yet better fuel consumption also.

Any one who owns such a GETZ care to confirm if this is correct?

Cheers
David from Cebu, Philippines

I don't profess to be a expert on diesel engines, but what I do know is that if you are thinking of buying a Getz diesel you should go for the 1.5 CRTD CDX+ 3-door, apart from being the fastest Getz (112 mph & 0-62 in 11 seconds) you can buy, it is not the most economical, that goes to the CRTD GSI, with 62.8 mpg, the CDX+ being only 61.4 mpg, now I think most people could live with that, but prices: the GSI is £9,145, the CDX+ is £9,995 both on the road prices, now I don't think that is bad, when I bought my 1.3 CDX automatic (with metallic paint) in 2004 it cost me on the road £10,495, I had to get a automatic because my partner can only drive automatics, but if I was thinking of buying a Getz to-day and I could choose a gear-box, I would go for the 1.5 CDX+ 3-door.

Hi There, yes I have 1.5 CRTD GSI and love it. Had 2l rover 400 d and i think the Getz pulls better and is getting better all the time I am now at 10K miles and getting 50 to 57mpg on comute. The engine is a bit lumpy at iddle but once you pull away you have a smooth responsive drive. As I said it is getting better by that I mean the fuel economy is improvinging and the pull from the engine improving, it must be the car running in and lossening up. Hyundai do tend to build thier car a bit tight!
But yes I would definatly have another one.

[attachmentid=2842]Hi guys

I drive a diesel Getz (5door) and have been positively impressed with it in all but one area, namely fuel economy.

On average, I only get around 43 MPG which is disappointing when compared against the book figures. One possible explanation is that I put a nice set of alloys on it with low profile tyres, however I wouldn't have expected that to cause such a reduction.

Anyone else experiencing low MPG. Hope you like the pics.

Regards

BCG

Hi, I'm new to this, but I've decided to go to the forums for help on my 5 door 1.5 CRDi m/t.

When I first got it, I immediately filled it up and took note of the mileage. My methodology for measuring fuel efficiency was to take the km reading and divide that by the number of liters filled in.

First 2 days, I got 14.8 km/L. Next three days, it dropped to 14. Over the next several days, it went to 13.5, to 13, to 12.8 km/L.

This is alarming for me because I'm close the the consumption of a larger petrol car -- which I would have gotten if I had known these numbers.

Still, I have hope. Took it to the dealer with those complaints (it was the first 1000 km checkup) and they said they'd look into it. Hopefully they'll find something to bring me back up to 14-16 km/L.

Hi,

I'm Kobus Vermaak from South Africa. I own a 2005 1.5 Diesel Getz. I bought this car brand new and from day one have had problems. On 2000km i send it in to check its fuel consumption as I was only getting 11km/l. The service manager ensured me that it will get better but it never did. On 13 000 km my turbo broke and was replaced. On 22 000, 40 000 and 47 000 km(twice) my injectors failed and was replaced. On 76 239 km the injectors failed again while I was driving which resulted in my car over fueling and the whole enjin is now blown. 2 Injectors, globe plugs no 2 and 3 pistons burned, camshaft damaged and their are oil in the intake which may result in the turbo also being damaged. In this whole ordeal I only made one mistake not servicing the car on 70 000km. The bill at the momement excluding the labour and turbo are R 48 000-00. Not having serviced the car on 70 000 km the warrenty has expired even though according to me this is a fault in the car. So my personal opion is stay away as far as possible.

Regards

kobus

Hi Kobus,

Wow, sounds like your experience was way worse than mine. After I had it serviced at the dealer, I've been getting 13.5-14.7 km per liter consistently. It also seems like the longer the drive, the better the mileage I get. Inside the city, I get crap mileage (expected because of the traffic) but I didn't expect the jump to be this drastic.

Anyway, sorry to hear about your Getz. Seems like the expertise of the dealer has a lot more to do with how good the car is than with others. Maybe it's a Quality Control issue; some Getz-es are great and some are lemons. Would be great if they fixed that, eh?

Getz-GP
Hi

Well just took delivery on Saturday of the 1.5 CRDI Getz and this morning driving to work the fuel filter light come on. Car is not reving more than about 2,800 rpm. Left message at the dealership to call back as everyone is busy.

Kobus, that sounds horrific. Car now has about 70km on the clock. Lets see how things go.
