@sag - If you could break your paragraphs into more sentences, it would be easy on the reader. Please consider, especially when making long posts like this.

From what I gather he means Engine bed bushes which according to my limited knowledge should be read as "Engine Mountings". Note he also mentions that 1 out of 3 has gone bust.

Now I do know that Diesel engines place more stress on their mounting points & mountings but a mounting failure on a car which has done only 30k kms & had no accidents is not routine. If I were you I would follow this up with HMP, Chennai & make sure that they replace this under warranty since there is no logical excuse to a mounting failing so early in a car's life apart from a component quality issue.

Hellstar,

What I understood from "Laura Effect" is that when you reach 2K RPM you can feel the power surge of the vehicle. It is nothing technical. But it is compared to the feel you get when you drive a Laura, hence the term "Laura Effect".

Cheers!!

@ carlover
the jerk you experienced during the gear shift is due to the engine moving forward on its bed yes i experience it very much during shifting in any gear and when the clutch is engaged or disengaged while the car is moving due to my weak engine bed.

@ diffsoft
I have been using 30 psi mostly and have a smoother ride than 32 or 33 that i know because i get the trye pressure checked every week, moreover if you travel some distance before checking your pressure then as the pressure shown is more than cold tyre pressure going for 1 or 2 units lesser wouldnt matter .

@ram hyundai
the company wiperblades are not good enough and not worth that much i changed mine into bosch wiper blades which cost around 400/- or cheaper go for the tropical ones if you live in a hot and humid climate they are are really worth the amount and you get a very clear view

Hi All,

Are these problems faced only in the Diesel Verna or are these also found in petrol Verna, the "bushes" getting worn out???

No point writing to Hyundai as I've sent 3 emails to them and its been 3 months no reply at all, all i got was an auto acknowledgment saying we will get back to in 3 business working days.

Did anyone else feel the same issue in your Vernas?

Cheers!!
I've a Verna SX ABS bought in May 07. Having done 9000 km in 9 months, I agree with carlover98 about its engine response around 2000 RPM. But I've a Laura too, and I don't as much feel such a thing with it- so why call it "Laura Effect", anyway? Despite its hefty price difference, I feel the Verna more comfortable to drive than the Laura. May be , but still.

My gripe about the Verna is about its tires. The SX has 186/65R14's, which are inadequate. My tire dealer has suggested to go for Michelin 205/60R14s. I am waiting for the 10,000km mark to come up to change my tires.

actually, they should call it the verna effect, or the swift effect, or better still, the turbo kick.
I have the same opinion about the tyres, but I will wait a bit longer than 10,000km(Vit M deficiency)

Hyundai dealers in Madurai have separate price tag for eg. Susee Hyundai madurai the hub cap cost is Rs. 1600 per piece whereas it was quoted to be Rs. 600 in Sukreeth Hyundai Madurai according to the guy who purchased my verna. I cannot believe and felt the new dealership is confusing with the hub caps of other models.
