Jaggu, where did you get the driveshaft repair job done-- at the H.A.S.S. or any other mechanic?

There seems to be some problem with the Suspension hitting my body well on the rear left. EVerytime the car goes over a potholes, I hear a screeching sound like Metal hitting against a Metal surface.
Have you taken an opinion from an independent garage?

Drive the car with your SA and replicate the issue to him, then only they will accept it. Otherwise they will come up with all sorts of excuses. Get all this rectified before warranty is over!

Its a straight forward job that any garage can do, i got it done at my Jeep mech Gopal's garage (200 bucks labor). Oh another 100 or so for the lathe coz the old shaft was not coming off the rotor assembly and we didn't want to hammer it out.

I posted this in the 'What's that Sound' thread, but got no responses. This thread seems relevant:

Mine's a 2006 Accent 1.5 Petrol. A few months ago, I noticed a creaking noise when the car leans on the right rear suspension. No sound while running on flat tarmac, or while taking speed-breakers in a straight line.

Got it checked at Hyundai A.S.S., and they said it's fine. When I persisted, they said they'll replace a few components if I wanted, to which I said NO. Now the sound has increased, I mean it's evident even on a bad road, while earlier it was happening only when the car leaned completely on the right rear.

What can be wrong? I don't want to change the entire assembly just because the Hyundai jokers can't find what's wrong.

Hi all,
I never had a liking for any Hyundai product ( I don't know why )
But this time i thought of considering buying a used Elantra CRDI while i was contemplating of buying a Optra Magnum Diesel.

This is an eye opener. The foreign car manufacturers can not take Indian customers for granted. My experience with TATA indigo TDI *** experience was far better. Only i suffered at resale value when sold

Regards
Denny

Are there any variants for the rubbing compound? Can you share the details please?

Well well well, I gave my 2008 Santro GLS for paid service yesterday.
Estimate came to 6K . what on earth are they going to do when I have said them specifically not to do Wheel balancing or any kind of repairs.

Mind boggling indeed. I would be better off owning a Honda if I have to pay 6K for routine paid services.

What should be the ideal amount for a paid service guys?

Please post the break up of the costs once you get back your car. We will be able to analyse it.

My I20 went for its first paid service last week and bill came to 4.5k excluding engine oil change .wheel alignment,balancing

estimate break up is -

1. Engine Oil + Engine flushing + some w.Swash = 4000 [ Sorry SA's writing is bad, worse than that of some doctors ]
2. Engine De-Carbizing = 1300
3. AC ventalizing = 750

WTH is de-carbizing and AC ventalizing?

Call your SA and ask him to cancel the engine decarb and engine flush. Not at all required.he is taking you for a ride

Also your car requires 3.2l of oil. Even if you put synthetic it won't cost that much!!!!
