Default Cabin noise in Palio 1.1 SLX

Hi Guys,

I feel that the cabin noise in my Palio 1.1 SLX is a little high. When I pointed this to the SA during the third free service (Prerana, Old Madras road), he said it is normal.

I want to know if there is a way to reduce this cabin noise. I feel it might due to engine, tyre pressure or road conditions.

Please advise.

Thanks a lot!

Default I second you, but its not too bad

I have an SLE, and I feel the same too. But I am consoling myself by reminding myself that:
- it is a new vehicle - not even the 1st service is done
- I think I am on overinflated tyres
- I hear it only when the stereo is not on

Atleast the tyre noise is more than the Getz or even the Matiz; if you find out that insulating material can be added to take care of this, please share it with us (the info, I mean ... not the material ). Engine noise is low enough, and I am not counting the clearly-audible low "booming" of the engine when you are in too high a gear for the current speed.

If u guys have Goodyear tyres it is most likely due to that. I realised it after I changed to Michelins. No noise now.
