Sorry for not mentioning the same. The tyre pressure is maintained at 30-32psi and filled once in every 2 weeks. I have also lowered the tyre pressure to 27-28 psi, the ride was a notch better. But, there was a loss of pickup.

Either the rubber (Read tyres) has become hard though it is a faint chance since the tyres are just run 37K kms so this may not be the main contributor.

I am placing my main bet on your suspension. May be it is time to change it

The tyres were replaced about one and a half years ago. They would not have hardened so soon. I still should have opted for Michelin or Apollo instead of Bridgestone.

During the last service the mechanic inspected the shock absorbers. He suggested only the bush kit replacement as shock absorbers seemed fine.
According to him, all feather weight cars have poor ride quality when they are not loaded with passengers. This seemed true to some extent, as the ride is significantly better when there are more than 2 passengers.

While the other cars glide on the ORR, my alto feels like sailing on rough seas. May be you can correlate now.

Thanks for the suggestion.
