Default 2011 Hyundai i20 Asta. 8600 kms, Yoke replaced and steering noise solved

I have also changed all the front brake pads prematurely because I was taken for a ride by the service guys. Next time I will visually inspect the pads before giving a go ahead for the change . Running on 3rd replacement set in 58k kms. For diesel, brake pads last 20k.

The service guy asked me to feel the outer circumference of the disc. The disc surface had become thin and you can make out the lip of the edge. I checked out other cars; the disc surface and the edge were at the same level. I still wonder how I managed to wear out the disc so early. I am very gentle with my car. I don't brake hard and my car runs for only 20km a day. I have put up the pics of my brake pad. The groove is still there no?

My 2010 i20 CRDi Asta has covered 90700 km till date. I changed my brake pads only twice. First at 39000 km and the next at 76000 km. My usage is 70% City and 30% highway drives.

Hey my friend Pancham,

I too serviced my car last month and the SA asked me to change the Discs and brakepad. My ODO reads around 32500. I refused to change the Discs and asked only to change the brakepads although i didn't see any difference in braking.

I was surprised when they asked me to change Discs for just 30k. I am driving my cousin's swift and even after 60k in ODO, there are no problems in Disc. Wondering why Hyundai is asking to change Discs for 30k run !!!

Hi Ravi

I had told them about changing the pads only but they claimed that since the disc have worn out the new pads wont last long. I also had this checked with another service center. They too claimed that the disc needs to be changed. However, they did not open up the brakes. Instead they just checked the edge of the disc and felt the lip and commented.

Guys -
I have a i10 magna 1.2 , 2010 model.
Has done 11K (yes 11,000 only). last oil and filter chnage done 1 year back at 8K ODO.

thanks,
Saurabh

The car has been doing well. It still drives like new. No irritating rattles at present or any other noises. However, yesterday I went to check out the Polo GT Tsi and during evaluation of my i20 the VW guy pointed out an area in the engine bay which had started to rust. I have tried to point out the area in the below picture. The rust is not visible and you have to crane your neck to see it.

What do I do about it? How much of it is it a worry?

Also, the cap in the encircled area was missing. I dont know how it fell off or if someone wacked it. Is it a problem driving around without the cap since I have no clue for how long I have been driving without it. I noticed it only during the evaluation.
