I'm a new to Auto-Motive-India, Joined Today from Chennai and this is my first Thread. My Vehicle Summary:
I have Tata Manza Quadrajet ABS
Jet Silver bought on Late 2011. Now I have crossed 30,000 Kms.
Mileage in City with 50% AC 18.5 kmpl and on Highway I usually got an awesome mileage of 28.5 with 50% AC with my trips started on very early morning before sunrise with 3 persons including me :-) and average of 25+ Kmpl on highways for other trips.
I usually maintain a constant RPM overhighways and will not cross 80Kmph. Usually maintain 75Kmph(around 1.5 to 1.6 RPM).
All services were made on Time. First one on 5000kms, second one on 10K and Third one 20K and now 30K. List of Problem Faced So Far:
1. Left Pull was there during my Delivery, which was rectified on same day before delivery.
2. AC Control Unit was not working hence outside Air comes into the Cabin, Replaced on Warranty and now working fine.
3. Many small and niggling Issues like AC water leaking in RHS seat still this issue persists. My Current Issue:
I have successfully completed the 30,000Kms service with Engine Oil changed and Air Filter Changed over warranty.
But, After this 30K service I'm getting a Noise from the Rear side somewhere from Tyre area when I accelerate and even when am on Neutral....
(Faster Hmm..Hmm..Hmmm..Kind of..from the rear side...kind of Tyre scratching Sound). I took my vehicle to back to Service center next day after 30K service.
I was told that, as they have changed(Crossed) the front tires to Back and rear ones to Front, this sound is coming. Also they said, my front Tyres were wear off heavily inside which is creating this noise. I usually check for Left Pull on every highway trips, I have not realized that. But still somehow the Tyres got wear heavily inside..Dont know how.
I need help on this. Pls. pass on your solutions and feedback to resolve this rear Noise. Also advise me on Wheel Alignment and balancing...heard from friends that I have to do this evry 3000Kms which will make the tyres healthy and constant wear.
