  1. I sent a query to Renault requesting a brochure and got a response stating that the details would be avaialabe in June, so I assume the launch is not far away.Flywheel2012-05-18 10:44:19
  2. The are only two people who will gain from this weird piece of legislation, one are the automobile companies which are already struggling to increase sales in India and the other are our traffic cops. Such legislations only give room to more and more corruption. As rightly pointed out by someone here we first need better infrastructure. Yes, I do understand that maintenance of the car is required but every year sounds ridiculous maybe after 5 years of purchase would make some sense.
  3. Harman is a welcome addition but I would love to see Tata concentrating more on improving their after sales service centers, not just quality of work but the service centers in totality, better customer lounges to start with. I feel the Aria is a better product than the XUV but just let down by a lot of Quality issues. I wouldn't mind paying more for the Aria if I am sure I will get a reliable car.
  4. So far I have not been stopped for my tints. Lets hope it stays that way at least till the end of summer.
  5. My guess would be to first check your fuel quality, it could be adulterated. Although I would be wait for the experts to respond to this query.
  6. Finally got my hands on the hub rings and fitted them. Everything is back to normal now. Feels good to finally have car back to normal without any vibrations. Thanks a lot guys for all your suggestions.
  7. @sb-alto: I am not using any spacers, don't intend to use them as well. Thanks again for the suggestions. I have ordered the Hub Rings online, once I have them will mount them and do the checks mentioned.
  8. Can anyone tell me where I can get Hub Rings in Chennai?
  9. @Brn2Crz: Thanks for the suggestions will check it out and let you know.
  10. @Brn2Crz: Can you please tell me how I can identify if the tires are blemished or not?
  11. Thanks a lot for your responses. Could you please explain this. I didn't quite get you. We can rule out bent rims since I have just changed my alloys yesterday.
  12. I have just changed my tires and Alloys for my Fiat Punto Emotion+ and am facing some vibrations while I drive above 100kmph. I have got my balancing and alignment checked twice and everything seems right. I have replaced my stock Apollo tires with Yokohoma C Drives and my OEM alloys with 15 inch 98PCD Evo Alloys. The vibrations seem to appear after 110kmph till around 125kmph and then reduce/stop afterwards. The vibrations don't occur every time. My question is would I need to add Hub Centric Rings to my car to avoid this vibration or is this some other problem altogether?
  13. I think the prices announced are for the CBU's, which would be for the first few months. HM plans to assemble this and once that happens the pricing should reduce. Edit: Just noticed this has already been mentioned.Flywheel2012-03-13 05:38:32
  14. The car does look far better than the Nano but I guess we will have to wait for the final production version and hope they retain most of the design elements of the concept.
  15. Thanks a lot everyone for all your inputs. I will let you all know as soon as I hear something from the service center.
  16. @sb-alto:Yes I suppose I will have to do that soon.
  17. @sb-alto: Thanks for the link I guess just the name of the owner is displayed and not the address. So I suppose that's okay.
  18. Well we got the car back again and sure enough the same thing happened again. Its amazing Hyundai have already spent around 3.5 lakhs replacing turbos and other parts in the car. I can't trust the car anymore,I think its about time we dispose the car off. We are just tried of being stranded non stop. If anyone has any thoughts on this issue, or suggestions it would help a lot? Its back at the service center and I am giving it one last try
  19. Checked this worked like a charm.Great feature. Looks like our transport department is finally getting up to speed with technology. If I am right there is Vahan website as well. We should be able to get the same details from the website. Any idea what the link is? Flywheel2012-02-24 10:29:36
  20. My Opinion is that the C drive will give you better grip that the BS even in the dry. Yes C drives will still give you good grip in the wet because of the tread pattern. Yes I read a couple of threads on another website about the steering going light I don't really think this should happen. It didn't happen when I put them on my old Swift. I think the Michelin will be more expensive option as well. To me the C drives will be the perfect balance between handling ,ride and noise reduction.
  21. @sb-alto : Any idea what the cost difference between Continental and Yoko C drives are? Also, which one would have stronger sidewalls, I am asking this since I go through a couple of really rough patches everyday. @sham:Sorry if I am hijacking your thread.
  22. Even I am planning to replace my tires for my Punto although I have the E +. I plan to go in for 195/R 15 since I feel its more than sufficient. You have a good balance between grip and ride quality with 15 inch rims. I am not sure how much the ride quality will be effected if you go with 16 inch rims as you would be going for lower profile tires. For a softer ride, better grip and lower noise give Yokohama a chance. The C drive should suit your needs perfectly. Just my personal opinion as I have had a good experience with Yokos.
  23. The feature list looks good and if they are going to offer all this for around 11 lakhs, this coupled with good fuel efficiency should give Renault a real chance at nailing this market.
  24. Exactly my question. Since I asked those questions now they have checked and told us that there is some leak and the some oil or fluid( not sure what this is) has gone into the radiator, they have changed the radiator also now. I have asked them to look at everything again throughly because I am not satisfied with them simply changing the turbo.
  25. They have checked the timing chain and the piping has been checked and they say everything is fine. According to them this problem is because they are having vendor problems for the Turbo. I am really finding this hard to believe. We should be getting the car back today or tomorrow again with the turbo replaced again . I can accept the fact that parts in a car can fail but I don't understand how Hyundai cannot resolve a problem with a car they built.
