70,000 km in 4 years on my Kia Seltos: Fuel economy & maintenance costs

I’ve driven over 20,000 km in the past year and a little sedate driving these days means the fuel efficiency has been good.

4 years and 70000 kms up!

This year has been very busy with official work and personal work (even this post came a week late). That meant a few holiday trips but a lot of trips for personal work in between whatever break we could afford. So I ended up driving a little more than 20k kms in the past 12 months.

A little sedate driving these days means the FE has been good.

Costs have also increased this year. A clutch overhaul, new front discs (and pads) and an unfortunate untimely tyre replacement. The steering worm shaft and the driver side power window assembly were replaced FOC under extended warranty.

The slight increase in service cost is due to me opting for a 3 prepaid services plan. The average service cost remains around 7k unless I opt for any extras like AC cleaning.

I renewed the insurance again with Tata AIG with the same riders and paid 20.7k.

Nothing to complain, business as usual. Happy man, happy machine
