    congrats on the successful completion of work. had seen your car at hyson in end Aug, however, last week it was not there. though the bill appears steep, they seem to have done a thorough and detailed job.

    Really? I got her back on 4th September. I think they did whatever necessary. So far no issues with the car. I had a test drive with their mechanic over different kinds of roads. They explained everything they did. Also replaced some parts in pairs as I insisted. Mr. Vinod, was in charge of the work done on my car; he is so friendly and loves to explain.

    @ renlouis , @ limraj - Vineeth was one of the finest technicians/ SA available at Hyson kochi. He has left Hyson permanently a couple of months ago. Vinod is a very knowledgeable guy.

    one major change in the attitude of people at hyson fiat is the details to which they go while explaining the work they have done. they are more than eager to let you know, and show all the replaced parts.

    Oh! Vineeth also left?? I do not understand why these guys stay longer in a service centre.

    Oh! I know him. His assistance was very helpful and cordial. He was there in the yard when I handed over the car to Hyson after the accident.

    Guys, after getting the car back in good condition I experience one weird but mild sound with the rear back, the area where the collision happened and was successfully repaired. This sound was not caught in the test drives by me as well as the mechanic after repairing the vehicle.

    The issue is that I hear a creaking sound from rear right side as I ride over any big (both high and wide) humb slowly by stepping right rear wheel first over the humb (before the left wheel rolls over the same humb). After reporting this to service center, the service adviser and a mechanic joined me for a test ride to reproduce the issue; unfortunately then it was not reproducible; where I strongly suspect the weird sound is not there when the rear of the car is laden (mechanic was in back seat). Anyway back to service center and did an under-body check, checked all nuts and bolts again, on the rear axle and rear suspension.

    The service adviser told me that they will do whatever needful, if I am able to reproduce the issue again.

    Guys, do you think what could be the problem behind that mild creaking sound. Anybody encountered same condition before? This sound was not there before the accident.
