And the agony continues!!!

400 Km after steering column replacement steering still tight as ever. With my 40 km's of everyday driving my arms certainly feel a lot stronger.

Have sent the car back to hmp, chennai and asked them to address the situation and this time for good.

Suprizingly i have not lost my cool or yelled at anybody yet!! Am pretty close to losing it though.

and even more

Few tightning of bolts and nuts in the suspension and the problem was solved. So dont worry and just try and get the job done.
So do we need to check the nuts and bolts often !
I feel Hyundai needs to address this seriously.
Its better to buy cars which are tested and sweet reviews from customers , no matter if the model is released late in India instead of Indian being made Guinne Pigs for testing new products launched in India before release in other countries .

Is it petrol or diesel version? Its seems to be some problem with the suspension. But nothing to worry. Call a toll free no and Raise a complaint. Your problem will be followed here-after.

Also check with other service centers as well.

Just got the car back yesterday evening from the service centre.

Have driven it about 40 km's since. The steering is back to super light, just the way i like it and no rattles either!!!

Apparently they reset and reprogrammed the EPS or so they say.

Well as long as the steering is the way i like it, i'll buy whatever they spin!!

I did send out 2 complaint mails to Hyundai's customer care mail id which is listed on their web site during the course of this little incident. I believe this really helped as the service guys and the service manager got a lot more receptive and involved with my car especially after i sent out the second complaint mail. The Service centre manager requested me to drive the car for a couple of days and send him a mail informing that all is ok.

Guess Hyundai is pretty serious about its after sales service!!

All's well that ends well.

Congrats Mubeen.

I am also facing the issue now.After the bush\pad was replaced by Suryabala Hyundai,Coimbatore my i20 seemed to be running fine.

Alas,it was not so.Since the last 3 days I am getting the same rattling noises again.Sent a mail to Hyundai customer care yesterday and contacted HMP as well.

They told me the next available appointment is for Dec6th grrrr....

When I explained them the situation,they told me to bring the car in tomorrow morning as walk-in customer

Hope mine gets fixed by tomorrow.Can you let me know whom you had spoke to in HMP.It will definitely help me

The Service Manager's Name is Vasudevan.

The Service executive who first handled my car was Sudhakar. After he messed up and made me come back twice i mailed customer care. The third time i went my service was handled by Prabhakar and Venktesh. Both chaps miles better than Sudhakar.

Hope this helps and good luck!!

Yeah its pretty sad when stuff like this happens on a new set of wheels.
Apparently my cars rattling required more than just the rubber bush being replaced with an urethane bush. The entire steering column had to be replaced under warranty and the steering was tight after that.

This was fixed after a 2 day visit to the service centre and now has recurred barely 10 days and 500 kms later!!

The service guys have again asked me to bring the car, its headed back to the service centre tomorrow. In the last one month the car has visited the service centre a good 6 times and tomorrow will be the seventh!!

What will it take to have my car in nice showroom condition again!

Its not so much a question of the car surviving it!! The rattle can get irritating as hell, sort of when u scratch your nails on a blackboard or something.

Every time i hear it my blood BP shoots up!

There is of course no performance issue due to the rattling. Its just the "yuck" factor.

You are having your steering column replaced as well? Thats sad!!

Met Venkatesh this morning and he was telling me you had dropped in.

I've been told the regional manager is dropping in to check out my car today and if necessary the vendor will be called in as well.

Damn, Hyundai's steering column vendor seems to have messed up big time! Maybe they can keep my car as an example of how NOT to make cars and upgrade me to a free ix35

Default Steering column rattle

Guys,

Had the same problem with my petrol i20 Asta, first they changed the "damper bushings". Then when the problem recurred a fortnight later (i.e last week) , I was told that it was coming from the steering column reduction gear. Got it back yesterday after repairs, and the car seems to be running fine.

Unfortunately, the guys in the service centre messed up the key (push button release not working for one set now) and probably the outside temperature gauge (showing a lower temp outside now).

Have just ridden it today, hopefully the rattle will no recur.

Will keep you posted.

Ankur

Swift has the same problem. rattles due to faulty steering column, bush. Once they rectify the problem, the steering wheel tightens. I dont really know why these car makers do not bother to test such things and rectify for ever.
