    Guys

    First of all, check your Mud flaps. On bumps, the mud flaps scratches with road surface & produce noise.

    If thats not the case, ask TASC to check anti-roll bar ball joints

    My Linea MJD has run for 19,800 kms in 1 year(that is today). During the rains my left front tyre went over a big pot hole in a hard way from there the problem started.

    Symptoms
    1) When you are turning towards the left (in my case) there was a grinding noise.
    2) When going over Pot holes or speed breakers again there was noise, but not as much as it was when turning towards left.

    Go to the service staion & ask the mechanic along with Service Advisor to accompany you for a ride, ask the SA to drive the car.

    As said in my earlier post in this thread the concerned parts were replaced under warantty & now no problem.

    I also got my Punto's Strut mounting replaced as well as lower arm as it used to make noise on bad roads, TASS folks tried lubricating the arm but issue resurfaced just with in 300 kms of run.

    Also back dampers were replaced as it was giving "Kyui kyui" noise, Now car feels lot silent other than the engine noise.

    If more than 30000 KM , did you get in warrantee Or paid job ?

    Amolmane,

    As per TASS Mysore road there is no restriction on warranty for Shock absorbers as 30K Kms,I have been told that they replace it for cars which have run 60 K Kms too.

    My Linea's front suspension also used to make a strange noise when the car went above a hump...the TASS person, found after lubricating the shocks' assembly, that the noise was due to the mud flaps scraping the speed breakers.

    They did the same for mine initially, but the problem came back with 600 kms of do int that, finally they replaced the strut mounting.
