    I agree will try to get the cover rectified before taking a final call.

    Guys,

    A small query..I'm kind of feeling the engine vibration on accelerator pedal now a days. It is not there during idle, but when in motion I feel it. I don't think it was there earlier. Any idea how to fix this?

    Suspension Noise

    Hi all,

    When someone heavy sits or gets off the car, there is a noise from the back. like a crumbling noise. has anyone else faced it? if yes, how did you get it resolved?

    I have been feeling a similar sound coming from the front when I used to release the breaks and clutch simultaneously, earlier I suspected this problem to be with the breaks and got it checked however there was no fault found.
    Recently I observed that when someone heavy gets off from the back seat I can hear the same sound from the back like a creaking / screeching sound.

    That sound is mostly due to the engaged hand brake. You can ask some one to get in/out with the hand brake disengaged, if the sound is not there then it was due to the hand brake and there is nothing to worry about. If the sound is still there take the car to TASS for a checkup.

    For me it is definitely not due to the Handbrakes

    i get this sound too when i accelerate or brake. Someone mentioned some link rod problem. Ill seek a clarification from the company mechanics when i visit the company workshop at pune for a checkup.

    This is mostly because of the seat support which is below the C-Pillar. It will be some kind of creaking noise because of plastic and metal running together.

    I have tried without the handbrakes as well. The noise is still there. It is more pronounced when there is even a small incline/decline.
