    Your tyre dealer has kept toe angle in Positive Reading.
    Read your owner's mannual. Toe angle is -1 to +1

    Go to TATA ASS Or realign the wheels at another tyre shop.

    for u guys with airbags also get ur steering aligned. Since once u get ur wheels aligned the steering tends to be off by a bit. and u cant just unbolt-straighten-rebolt the steering due to the airbag.

    Air escape noise when brake pedal is pressed

    I am getting a vaccum leak noise when I press brake pedal. I fear it might be a bad Brake booster.
    Can anybody confirm if it's normal behavior of linea or not.
    My car have clocked 24300 km and I don't know from when is this noise coming.
    I hear this noise when I press the pedal when car is stationary with the engine started.

    Apart from this car brakes are working totally fine and are super A++

    I purchased the car on 15.2.2011.It has run only 100 kms.I find that the vehicle has a tendency to swerve to the right. I have checked the tyre pressures and plan to check the alignment. Is there anything else that I need to do? I hope it is not a faulty car.

    Congratulation on New Purchase. :clap
    It's bad you are facing some issue. I hope it will be only alignment issue.

    Vaskar, first of all congratulations for your Jet and welcome to TFI.

    The car swerving to the right could well be an alignment issue or because of the road condition.
    Please do not conclude that you have got a faulty car. Be positive.

    I have had this experience in one strech of road near my home where the car swerve to the right. I later found out that the road had a slope from left to right.

    So, please test the car on an open, straight road to conclude if its an alignment issue.
    If its an alignment issue, just a visit to your friendly neighbourhood tyrewala who will solve the problem in a jiffy.

    Happy Motoring.
