    Default Believe it Or Not , Santro Gear Broken

    Hello my Santro Exec GV 2006 failed after 7400 KM

    what happen is that i was on traffic stop i just put the first gear and left the clutch then there is a sound "Cruch Cruch"
    engine is running but the gear system fails i cant move anywhere eventhough engine is running. i call my bro for Towing to sajad motors lahore with 6 years old car.(this santro is just 5 months old)

    hmmm....

    there is a broken clutch plate, pressure plate, gear housing broken ,bearings lost,new fly wheel needed,they sum up with 40,000 bill i showed them the warranty card.

    now the blames come into action from all the people working on sajad motors , jail road, lahore

    Blame # 1 (Before opening) some stone hit your car but this blame turned down when they open the gear box and found the stone cant reach from where the gear housing broken.

    Blame # 2 (After opening) you have suddenly changed the gear from third to first.

    Blame # 3 You have not done the 5000 Km check up , in response i showed them the RS 1250 recipt of 5000 KM checkup this blame is also turned down

    Blame # 4 Car was hot thats why this happen

    Blame # 5 Although we dont cover these things in warranty but we will compensate i will try by best 50 percent charges each.


    The final fight i dont cover your warranty at all do what ever you can do. My driver uncle "Oh no sir please please calm down"

    before you Claim a warranty from Sajjad motors, jail road, Lahore
    try practicing begging at the Kalma chock Lahore you will get your compensation


    My father might have 0.00000001 % of what Hyundai has the thing is we live hapily by the grace Of Al Mighty we dont care about money but Hyundai company cries very badly i can feel the pity.

    Sad but this is the exact way they acted with me when my sportage lost its brakes.

    Stop wasting your time with these lowly sales & service jokers. Write a letter to the head office and bring your grevience to their attention immediatly.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    really sad.
    but want to know from some expert that this:
    Blame # 2 (After opening) you have suddenly changed the gear from third to first.

    does this really create problem??

    normally, clutch/press plate issues are not entertained under warrantee claim, go through the terms and condtions, all blame goes to driver.
    stating the fact as i ve been through this debacle.

    Edit: forgot to mention, out source the parts, wont cost u more than 15K.

    santro's foot rest take some time getting used to. it creates problem in pressing full clutch and at times while u think that your foot is at the rest, its half on clutch and half on rest. check your driving style.

    Hmmm, very sad to hear it.

    Well Being Pakwheelers................ What can we do against Dewan ?

    Any Suggestion ?

    Should we stop buying from Sajjad Motors,Lhr or should we stop buying local made (junk). ???

    Any Suggestion ?

    I agree with @spectra. Santro has this problem, the footrest is too close to the clutch padel and it does take some time to get used to.
