    AC air escaping from door handles!!

    Hello fellow TFI'ans. As the title suggests, I discovered today that the cool air from my car AC is escaping from three of the doors handles! Both the front doors and the right rear door. Has anyone else experienced this? What's the solution??

    On a lighter note,I have 2 remedies:
    1.Switch off the A/C and voila,A/C will not escape through the door handles.
    2.Think positively and show the new feauture to all your friends that FIAT cars have cooled door handles!!!

    This reminds me of a recent incident. One of the hyundai showroom fellow showed me verna's leather seats with holes that pass cool air to cool the driver's back.

    That Must be Elantra.
    It comes with Cooled seats,its a feature,not a marketing gimmick.
    Verna,does not have this figure.

    Don't know if that is available in Elantra too.

    In US, most of the premium cars have this feature of Heated/Cooled seats.

    @nobrakes, Me too observed this ac cooling escaping from door-handles. When asked at the service center they told that nothing like that.

    Wow Bala, do you work at TASS? Such an answer is only expected from them!! ;-) They told a friend of mine who owns a vista "Sir, rattles come free with TATA cars!"

    Yes Shadowfax, will take it up with them soon.....just wanted to know if anyone else has faced this.

    Will appriciate it if our "gyaani" members can stick to the topic :).

    Cheers!
