    raj, These are small, but irritating noises and it kills the enjoyment.
    And these are certainly not normal, I don't have any of these.

    So take it to your service center, but it needs multiple visits and interest of service guy. You need to convince him.

    if the sound from dashboard and steering sounds like kirrr kirrr then its some wires brushing against each other. i had such sound in my punto and had heard it in another friend's punto also. the issue was resolved in both cases satisfactorily at ASC

    I'm the latest victim. The arm rest on my Tejt+ (which I generally dont use during city driving) is now making major squeaking/rattling noise. I've stopped using it thus. Is this a known issue?

    Finally this was fixed! They said they replaced elastic pad worth 2457.78 under waranty. After this so far no wierd sound from front suspension and many of the car rattles also vanished! :cool:

    yes, it kills the driving experience. I have to drive with music on everytime. I like listening the engine growl sometimes but these noises irritate me.

    Can any Mumbaikars help me as to which ASC should i take the car to? Fortune Motors, Powai is the closest to me.

    is this mentioned anywhere?
  7. Raj, Fortune Powai is good. I have got all my services done from them only. IMHO they are better than Bharti, Galaxy & Balaji.

    Arishi, don't know about others but about galaxy, you have to creat intreast in SA for your car.
    Each second you have to show them who is superior.
    You have to bang up, create noise for small issues also!
    I got my most of the work done in Galaxy but i did lot of efforts to get em done. Not an easy job! :p
  9. Raj, Even in my new car am hearing the 2 sounds that you mentioned as point 1 , 2

    If you are able to resolve it please post the solution over here ..

    1 . Sound from the steering column ( as if 2 small metal plates are touching )

    2. Rattling sound from left side of the dashboard .

    Both these sounds are only when we go over not so smooth roads where we cant drive abover 50 kmph..

    I am thinking to get it rectified during my first service visit to A.S.S
