You would have observed that this phenomenon will be amplified when you park the car after driving in the rains or after giving your car a wash or if you tend to keep your car parked for very long durations. It will also be amplified if you apply the handbrake very tightly, due to parking on a steep gradient.

If your parking area is flat, apply the handbrake lightly and put the car in first. This will reduce the 'thud' sound and you will also preserve your rear discs.
Isn't that just the creaking/squeaky sound you hear when releasing the hand brake? A loud thud seems really odd never noticed that :/

Yes the creaks and grinding sounds are also due to rust. But when the rust forms a bond between the discs and pads, it does not allow the pads to get released from the discs fully when we release the handbrake. When the wheel moves for the first time, the bonds breaks and makes a thud kind of noise. This sound will normally come when you move the car for the first time in the morning. For the rest of the day it will not happen.

I have experienced this phenomenon in some cars that I have owned. It normally tends to happen in the rainy season.

If what you are saying is right then should I tell this to maruti since this car is just 2 months old(i.e in my possession).
Plus there is no rains in ahmedabad so how has the rust formed? The sound has started 3 days after the first service(do you think the service center messed up?).

No this sound is quiet loud and in fact the whole car rocks from side to side when this happens.

Oh and I never knew that splash guards are a standard fitment eitherway all parts are paid for by the leasing company
Interesting what you mentioned about the key fob. So you're saying that once resolved the doors will automatically lock at speeds greater than 10kph? Do keep us posted on the outcome of this I would really like to know what Suzuki does to resolve this.
Yes the doors will automatically lock at 24km/h. Going to give the car in April since lots of guests are present and both the cars are required. Will update you as soon as i get it done.
