    with me it happens in two situations .
    1. when i start accelerating before the rear wheels have crossed the hump
    2. i am not slow enough while crossing the hump.

    Chill, all hatchbacks and even some sedans have this very common phenomenon. The unsprung weight on hatches is less and when you go over the bumps fast the tyres will obviously jump.

  3. I have faced similar issues with my Punto, But when the rear seat is occupied the problem almost disappears. So it shouldn't be a major concern.
