      Hyundai Eon Problems

      Hi Everyone.
      I bought Eon DLite+(petrol) around 25 days back and there are some problems from day one.i took the car back to Hyundai the very next day but till now they havent been able to solve them.

      Problem1: Engine has a Clutter.it sounds like a diesel engine.i know it a 3 cylinder engine but when compared to other Eons, my car has a grunting, cluttering kind of noise in all gears at all speed and Hyundai people can not diagnose and finally told me that its common in all Eons which it is not.Noise is so much that its irritating to sit inside the car.
      I drove quite few Eons and none of them have this noise.

      Problem2: while reversing, Engine produces a noise.it comes in all Eons but in mine it is 300 times more.is that normal? Should there be that much of difference?

      Problem3: The rear suspension rattles like a 5 year old car even on slightely bad roads and minor bumps..it has a THUD kind of noise 'everytime' tyres go through even a mild jump or rough.Hyundai people are telling me its due to light weight of the car which I dont think it is.

      Problem4: if I lock the steering to left and turn the car, theres a noise but it only comes in mornings.It sounds like as if tyres rub with mudflaps and on while braking, it produces Grrrr..kind of noise at all speeds.

      I have left my car with them 5 times in last 25 days but all the problems still exist.
      I have also complained to hyundai and have been in talks with one of their Managers from Chandigrah, Mr.Jamaal but all in vein.
      My Unit has problems from day one and I am demanding a new Unit as I have reported the problems from the first day and they havent been able to rectify them.i dont even drive this car as I am not happy with it and its frustrating to knw it is all these problems.
      Am turning to GearHeads as my last hope so guys please suggest me what should I do?

      The problems mentioned are quite specific to car that the OP has.

      When I bought the car an year back, (it was Era+), I knew of two issues 1) Car being noisy due to its 3 pot engine and 2) Gear rattling.

      These were the issues I was prepared to live with and since then till now, I have managed to do quite well. The engine noise had started to trouble me a bit from last one-two months, but after 2nd service (at 8600km), that was taken care of and the car is back to its smooth running available now. Mind it, it still has engine noise but its at permissible limit.

      There is no noise reported in the car so far while reversing. And the mud flap noise that has been talked about can easily be addressed by adjusting them. I had once when the flaps had bent a little. Pradeep took me to a local repair guy and he fixed it in 5 mins.

      I have had complaints with its suspension!! That's one thing I wish had been better. I have had to take extra care when I have 4 people sitting in the car. With me alone, the car suspension feels too bouncy and it doesn't give any comfort on bumps/ speed breaks.

      If you have had issues with this one particular car, then I guess you are in right direction by complaining it to higher authorities. If you are being unheard of, go higher up. Or change the service center. There are few service center of Hyundai which are notorious for their poor service. See if changing the center helps.

      I understand that the engine is 3 pot and it will be noisy but the noise my car makes is not a normal one.its like a clutter old diesel engines used to have.
      I have driven 5 to 6 different Eons and none of them have this noise which means its a problem.
      Yes ur right.its suspension is bouncy when ur driving alone bit I get a THUD kind of noise even on a slightest bump or mild rough road.is that normal?
      There are only 2 Hyundai dealers in my city.i will try going to a different one and lets see what they have to say.
      U mentioned OP has same problems.Can u give me the link to his thread/posts?
      Thankx for replying.

      Anyone else facing such issues please share your experiences and solutions.

      Hhhmmm! Can you check the engine oil level and see if upto the max mark and also see the condition of the engine oil? Also which city are you from? We could take a look at your car and see if it's an issue!

      I haven't looked at the Eon's engine, but if you could have someone look at it and see if the tappets are hydraulic or can be adjusted manually, it would really help to narrow down the issue!

      What speeds in reverse! Usually all cars make that whining sound in reverse as the Reverse gear is a spur gear, not the typical helical gears you get for the 1-5/6th gears.

      TD other Eons. Mostly your suspension will need to be replaced under warranty if it's not the same on other cars. Take a TD on another EON on the same stretch of road and see if you can replicate it.

      Have someone else turn the steering to full lock, while you see if it's scrubbing against anything! In most probability it's the noise coming from the power steering pump that is being over worked at full lock turns. Holding a steering at full lock is not advisable for more than 2-3 seconds!

      I understand how disappointing it is to face these issues on brand new cars! I suggest you have someone who knows cars well take a look so that you have a second opinion. Please do let us know where you live and let me see if I can find a member close to you to have a look at it.

      To be more precise, the sound comes when I press the cluth or leave the accelerator while reversing. I know reverse gear makes that whining sound but in my car its about 300% to 400% more than any other Eon i tested and at all speeds.Even at 10kmph.

      Remote solution for such problems is going to be very difficult! One will have to take a look at the car thoroughly to see what could be wrong! Could you check with a trusted, independent mechanic in your city and see what he has to say? I doubt, any of our boys stay in Srinagar.

      See if you can find any decent service center nearby Srinagar, if Srinagar service centers aren't good enough (may be in Anantnag or Jammu)

      Anantnag and Jammu are very far but we do have another Hyundai dealer so I will get it checked there too and hopefully have a solution and if not, then will refer to some trusted mechanic outside to know what the problem really is.

      Guys thank u so much for ur help.

      As suggested by u guys, I got my car checked by a reputed mechanic yesterday and within 5 minutes of drive he said its a Gearbox issue.He then raise the car on jack from left side and the noise was so evident.
      I have been in talks with Mr.Jamaal from chandigrah about all this but lately I hear no response from him.Everytime I talk to him he promises to call back but never does.
