I am new to driving and have driven around 1500kms now in about 1 month. I own Honda Amaze SMT idtech. Few observations which I could draw from this one month of driving. Would appreciate if you guys could clear these doubt's of mine:
1. If I am in 3rd gear doing about 30kmph and have to take my foot off accelerator I can hear some type of chain sound and when I change to 2nd gear its fine. Would like to know what is this chain type of sound. Is it normal because I do not hear it in any other gear when rpm drops.
2. I have also notices after making the turn when steering is trying to come back to the center position, it kind of vibrates. I am not sure if this vibration was there before. This is more evident when driving in slow speeds. Have any of you observed this in diesel amaze.
3. Because of no wheel cladding I think, any stones on road make prominent noise when they hit the tyre well. What are the options to reduce this please?
Apart from the above I think the car is a gem and being a new driver I am enjoying it. I am getting constant 21 kmpl in city with AC on all the time. Haven't driven on highways yet.
Also planning to get seat covers soon, not researched yet but would appreciate if you have got any suggestions. I would like fixed type ones.
Thanks in advance. Great thread.
