Hyundai Venue S+ PDI Checklist

I had made this PDI checklist while evaluating Hyundai S+.  PDI or Pre-Delivery Inspection is buyers last opportunity to identify any existing issues in the car. If you spot any issue in the vehicle during PDI stage, you can ask dealer to replace the car or fix the issue depending on how serious it is. If there are dents or damages, paint job issue, vehicle has been driven unreasonably high number of kms (50-100+) then you have all the rights to reject the car. If you miss spotting them, car will be registered in your name and dealer may claim car was fine when they delivered, these issues came up only later. Then your options will be limited.

So how to do PDI?

  • Do PDI in daylight, outdoors, not indoor or during dark time
  • Understand various features of your car and variant. You should do this before ordering, so that you won't have any disappointment. No one will help if you were expecting the car to have some feature not explicitly called out and it is not there.
  • If not confident, take a friend well knowledgeable about cars
  • Keep enough time- do PDI before car goes to RTO- you may need 2-3 hours. Don't keep this for delivery day when you are too exited to drive home, family members are waiting and showroom is about to close.

Below is a PDI checklist I made for Hyundai Venue S+. Feel free to edit as per your needs. Similar can be used for other models of vehicles, just that you have add any new feature and ignore features not available/not applicable to that variant.

My personal PDI experience: I checked of the above things as soon as SA informed that car has arrived. A few more things I checked before taking delivery. I think I still missed 10-20% but haven't faced any issue with the car so far.
