Guess I made a bad decision. I should've checked with you guys before chagnging the tyres. Anyways, nothing much I can do now.
That's nothing to be worried about. Milk the life out of those tyres and write a review or opinion about them. If provided with statistical data, it might help manufacturer to figure out.

Very true, huge money is made in parts and service.. More than sales I would say. And since you mentioned the "Rear Disc Brakes" as an eg, that's one thing I don't understand why Hyundai discontinued that feature. I think they discontinued it starting from my version (Verna 4s). Rear disc brakes would've definitely added to the braking experience.
"Cost reduction" since customers never complained to OEM about the removal of rear disk brake system. But you can install rear disc setup for like 20K INR + labour (AFAIK) from Hyundai ASC.

Tough time for everyone bro
Totally agree...Hope you guys are all safe
you can change the tyres (say if you get a good deal , say per tyre if Michelin /Any other brand dealer ) buy backs this new tyres , you can change to those
Good idea, but I'm sure they would try to buy back the tyres at the lowest proce possible. For now, I'll just stick to the MRF's and see how my experince turns out to be.
The thing with ZVTV , is its sidewall is quite weak (I suffered a sidewall crack at 1.5k km , I was in crawling traffic , and as it was a havey rain , I couldn't see a thing , and left passenger wheel had drifted off the road).
Man, that sounds really dangerous.. Did you manage to get control of the car?

That's exactly what I'm planning to do. If the experience turns out to be really bad, then I sure won't make the mistake again... [;)]

Hmmm, when they remove an essential feature like that, they should atleast make up for it in terms of price or addition of something else better.. But that was not the case here...
To be frank, the braking is actually good with the current front disc and rear drum setup, nothing that I can complain of. But just curious if it would've been much better with the rear discs. Have you driven the older version with the rear discs by any chance?

Hope you drove USDM cars to your hearts content.
I own a Nissan Rogue 2019 model.. Its a car which serves my purpose, spacious and loaded with good features

The pic below is a day after the incident and the car had been in the parking for a while. But two weeks back the glass crumbled from the bottom and completely went into the door.
Sorry to see this. I wish the window glasses could be made bit stronger in our cars. Last August, one morning around 5 am i heard some banging noise. It woke me up from sleep and i checked outside to see 2 guys trying to break open my car's front passenger window to take the GPS from the car. They were hitting hard several times but just managed to crack the glass. I shouted at them and they ran away. Checked the car after it got a little brighter to see that the front window glasses are laminated and wont just shatter into pieces in the event of a damage. I learnt from the glass repair mechanic that it is a safety regulation to prevent injury/death to people by them getting thrown out of the car during a crash. They cracked but stayed in place till i got the replacement shipment the next week. I could have driven around with for a week it but it gave poor visibility so did not risk much.

MRFs are also good but i have read many reviews that they are bit harder and noisy at high speeds. Bridgestones are known for their wet grip. Don't bother much as this is a time of crisis. Be happy that you managed to replace tires easily when you wanted. It is also a reputed brand and has been there for several years. May be they have improved and you may share positive feedback soon which may help us change our perspective

i was told by the service guy when i questioned them on the removal of rear disc brake when Ibought the car. The answer was to avoid the risk of a complete brake failure in the event of hydraulic fluid loss. I was still wondering how other manufacturers are still managing the setup . May they knew the problems with the clutch system and the clutch and brake share the same reservoir in Verna?!

The reason for removing rear disc is
1.Cost cutting at the time of manufacturing
2.Lower Service cost (Rear disc setup , although doesn't requires high maintenance like that of front discs , does need inspection , and calipper pin greasing at regular intervals , rear drum setups , most ASS don't check it at all - Although enthusiastic ones like us , do insist to check , and that is billed separately , if one doesn't have a good relation with SA ) .

Note- There are various codes for billing -
Example -
1.Front brake Overhauling- 450 rs
2.Rear Brake Overhauling- 450rs
3.Brake overhauling- 450rs

What my SA does is put brake overhauling , and do the front and rear jobs together , what other SA's do , put 1 and 2 separately , benefit is they get incentives [thumbsdown]
