If anyone wants to experience the rattling sound, test drive the white i20 at Advaith Motors - Vasanth Nagar.
36 psi is one of the issues. 30 is the ideal pressure as displayed in Hyundai dealer.

It doesn't mess up the wheels. Just get some brake pad cleaning fluid that you get in any automobile store ( I guess it is Vista make) and follow instructions on the canister. You can have clean discs. Mind you - The process has to be repeated after a while. Though the can says it prevents pad dirt from settling, it does settle but not as much as earlier. Try it. Good luck with that.

I really want to drive an i20 with the rattle. I have trying hard to figure out if my i20 also rattles. but haven't been able to figure out anything yet. I have driven on not so good roads too, though I can feel the regular rumble of driving on rough roads, i wasn't able to figure out any rattle that we have been talking about on this thread and others. I only had krrrrrrrrr (very mild) sound coming out from the left side - interior, that was bcos of the cable of the amplifier rubbing against the body which I had gotten fixed. besides that i don't hear any rattle.

The only thing I notice is if I go over a speed breaker a lil quicker than usual, there is a thud on landing - presumably on the left front - is this what we are talking about? Or --->
