    @Ganges for spirited driving soft sidewalls aren't recommended at all. Anyway, comfort being the priority, I have to live with it :)

    Rule out the possibility of false alignment before taking it to FASS

    to know your bumpy ride, you have to invest on new tires.So you found the culprit.
    this is what i told you previously to check the tire treads after 1K Kms. ;) .
    Till now you were masking the issue with soft compound tires and making your punto fool which was never a lastlong solution.

    I agree with you @Ganges and @Punto_emotion. I guess changing the tyres was a quick fix solution.

    I drove Renault Pulse of my friend this weekend for quite some time. That has hard suspension too but it was never bumpy on any speeds and handled well but the brakes were like :thumbdown: it takes a while for the car to stop, can't drive it like I drive my Punto :)

    This 22nd I have scheduled a service slot with Vecto, let's see :)

    Help!!

    I spoke to Vecto guys on the suspension issue and tyres getting worn out unevenly.

    They have agreed to replace the struts. Is there anything else that I need to check with them ? Coz the diagnosis of faulty struts was done by Bosch Service center near my place.

    Request you to give your valuable inputs.

    Thanks.

    @Ganges what is step number 1 then ? Uneven wear out or alignment issues are caused by suspension. That's all I know.

    If there are any other aspects I need to consider, then please highlight.

    I somehow have to get this fixed to avoid a hole in my pocket (20000) for new set of tyres :D

    Sooner or later I might not be able to afford driving the car due to all these issues.

    Appreciate your help and concern.

    @Ganges haha..you can imagine my plight now, am in love with the car but somehow can't keep her happy.

    Let's hope its struts only, if not then a detailed diagnosis will have to be carried out considering, axles, chassis etc etc what not... :p

    Wish me luck :thumbup:
