Eventhough I drive in Mumbai which is known for its notorious traffic snarls. I did have the juddering issue but that only happened during the monsoons and was told that it was due to moisture. I also had my clutch serviced at 40k kms but didnt have any parts of the clutch changed till date.

With regards to the jhatkas, it must be a worn out suspension bushing.
I have a 2007 Swift which got its clutch replaced in 2008, with around 14 K on Odo. The current clutch is almost gone (90%) its now 23K on the Odo.
But i should say that my Dad's driving style also should have complimented this wear out.

Thanked: Once

The thing is I have never driven on the clutch. My car is self driven, I drive in Mumbai but hardly go main mumbai. My drives are 95% highway driving.

This clutch change issue is like a blow on my face. I feel I have been doing something wrong.

But thanks to you guys, I will take up this issue with the GM at service and speak about it.
