Part I -->>It's been a year and four months I have bought my i10 auto asta. Few months back the classic steering rattle ( a tak tak kar tak sound while going on bad roads) started on my car. It's a design flaw actually. To get it sorted I went to highest authority. They promised me entire rack change, but I honestly feel that will only complicate problems.
Rest my car's mileage is good, its easy to drive.
part II -->> After this I thought of selling it off and going for
1. New alto k10 vxi
2. Used SX4 VVT
3. Used Dzire / new Dzire, petrol/diesel
4. Mod my i10 and put in alloys and fatter tires and live with the steering rattle.
5. Wait for new swift (though I hate rattles)
I like problem free cars. Having driven almost across the globe, brand is not an issue, nor I want to show off.
Seeking your help in arriving a decision. I do lots of highway drives. Covered 21000 in year and 4 months on my i10 auto.
