If this Brembo contact takes orders and ships to other locations, can you share/PM the details please.
I own a '14 verna and looking for some more bite out of the braking now. Stock does not exactly inspire confidence. Spongy IMO.

Hi everyone,

Going for the booking tomorrow - SX(V) AT Petrol. Quick question - how has been your service experience with HASS? What estimates would you say for the yearly service? Have been hearing various stories of HASS inflating the bills and in-general overcharging. Elantra, being one of the less selling ones, do you find the HASS capable/experience of servicing it properly. Thanks.

I believe for first three years service for Elantra is free. So one should not encounter high costs for that period atleast.

Yes, that is correct. I was hoping to hear from forum members, more from a long term perspective on costs as well as general experience with HASS on competency.

Hi All, I would appreciate if anyone could help me with this. I own an Elantra Sport year 2017 and the car shows symptoms of severe wheel hop on hard acceleration from standstill. It occurs when the front wheels start to lose traction due to the heavy acceleration on tarmac. The front wheels feel like dribbling basketballs and it seems like the whole car will tear apart. It stops only when the driver lets off the pedal immediately or till enough speed is attained before the tyres regain traction. Is this issue present for the 2.0 VTVT or the 1.6 CRDi(manual/auto)? I understand the Sport has different underpinnings and wheels but I am curious to know if the other Elantras are plagued with this issue.

Hi alphahere, as I have experienced, the Elantra 1.6 diesel Auto and manual show slight torque steer if accelerated hard in 1st and as soon as you shift to 2nd gear. But if you dump the clutch in both the manuals(petrol and diesel), in first gear, there's a lot of wheelspin and drama but that's about it. Second gear onwards though the petrol doesn't have enough torque to make the tyres spin but the diesel can. That's about it. The Elantra Sport with a more powerful engine and a FWD layout definitely should have way more drama in comparison to the relatively less powerful engines being offered in India. Hope that helps
