    Hmm...this is a possibility. I have driven through waterlogged roads three weeks back during my trip to kerala. I had to drive through places where road or no_road cannot be seen, but had to be felt from the tyre, all under water.
    I replaced my brake pads @11k kms...I have done 6k after that. 18 k now.

    That means, I have to go to TASS. :(

    If you have traveled through water, a through cleaning of your break drums might help. 6K is too early to wear out the break pads.

    Got the brake pads / drums cleaned at Concorde motors. The noise seems to have gone now.
    Total cost for cleaning INR. 0.00 :)

    hii , whenever i go over bad roads i hear a sound as if rear seats are loose . The sound is not a squeak or a rattle . Wanted to know that does this sound appears in every punto or there's some problem with mine and lately my car has been swaying a lot on undulations on the road even at low speeds. Dont know whether its worn struts or bad tire...Has anyone experienced it...??

    Are you 100% sure it is from front suspension? Can't say it for 100%, but link rod is worth checking.
