I m sick & tired to wasting my time on this car & Advaith hyundai.
My serious suggestion to everyone who is reading this is not to buy Santro Xing. I have had enough with this car & am left with no energy for that matter anymore. I feel so sinful to drive this **** now.
dude; defective belt. If i remember right there are two belts ther or 3? One for alternator or so and one for steering? Somehting like that. The story goes like this. I too had this problem with my Ist gen Santro. They replaced one belt ( as I said sont ask me which now). Still it was squecky squecky sometime later. I took the car back and they diagonsed it to anotehr belt which got lose when the other one was fitted. Change the A.S.S. guy and see. Or mail/fax teh company engg.

There are some belts made which have a slightly harder compound. Oil on the belt is a temporary and bad idea. You can reduce the noise temporarily with just pouring water on the belt. The lasting solution would be to change the belt. By the way the problem is not the car, so don't take it out on the car!

He will give the car tomorrow. I will never buy Hyundai car again in my life.
The problem has started occurring again. Took my car to a local trustworthy mechanic and he told me that engine bearings are making the noise. The noise does not come if I press the accelerator in neutral. He told me that it comes in almost all zens and santros. He told me to show it at the hyundai workshop and try and get it rectified for free. It comes only when the car is moving. Its like a grrr ..grr sound.
My car is 2 yrs and 7 months old and I have done a little less than 22,000 Km. Is the engine still under warranty?
