    After 19k kms, both strut mounts (Elastic pads) are busted. The 'twang' is clearly audible while turning the steering. Unfortunately elastic pads are not in stock:A. Recently the ride has become very harsh. Would this change after replacing the elastic pads?

    Got both the strut mounts changed (part no: 0059117281 & 0059117282). Additionally two "caps" (Part no: 0059117154) has been fixed.

    My warranty claim was rejected saying that "hardening is not covered as there is no breakage":shocked . So does it mean that we can claim warranty only if the struts break and we are stranded on the road? My car has run only 19k kms and i have extended warranty too.

    Guys,
    I want to write an e-mail to get a refund from whoever is concerned. What are the mail ids? Please help.

    Its a known fact that the "Elastic pads" of all 2009 -2010 models have issues an have been replaced. I personally know 2-3 guys who have got it replaced under warranty. Instead of doing a recall, these idiots are putting the expense on our heads. Rs 2508 * 2 + Rs 550 (labor) + Rs 350 (alignment) = Rs 5916 + taxes.

    Note: The TASC guys replaced the heater plug under warranty though I had no complaints (smell a scam)
