I have an Ertiga ZDI with stock alloy wheels. Just after having the delivery , i upgraded the tyres to 195/65/ 15 of yokohama make. That's the end of my happy story
After 2 months i had a rattling noise at the rear. I have reported this during my first service visit. They identified it as a rear left shockers problem and replaced it under warranty. Still the problem wasn't rectified. Took it back for inspection and they have identified that the rear right also has to be replaced, which they did under warranty. It not the end my friends.....
Just after few days again this noise cropped up. I beared it for a month and now having my vehicle serviced(3rd).
I am pretty sure of very very poor workmanship of this MASS( SAI service Hyderabad)
i have my own reason to complain about the workmanship. Till date i have reported 5 problems -
1)rattling noise at the rear
2)have to bang hard the front left door to get it shut
3) horrible roof noise
4)air leak into the cabin which is very much noticeable at high speeds
5) left front door noise when i lift up the glass----strangely this happens only when it rains or has a body wash.
Sadly not even a single problem has been resolved inspite of having this vehicle sent to them 7 times.
What i would like to know is that was this due to the tyre upgrade that i did or due to poor workmanship. I seriously doubt if they identified the cause of the noise at first place. If i raise this issue again, would they act smart claiming it to be a tyre upgrade issue and hence out of warranty? FYI
, i fill nitrogen into the tyres and maintain an air pressure of 33 Front / 31 Rear
The rattling noise doesn't happen all the timesand not during regular running. It only happens when i am into potholes or speed breakers.
guys, plz shed some light on this! Your views are welcome...
