When this matter took place my car was driven 5000 only and 3 months old. There was a wierd sound when car went from P to R or R to D, went to Honda Point. They checked it and figured out the right axle assembly has a fault at the end part which goes into the wheel hub. Engineer from the factory was called. So a new axle assembly was ordered and replaced but that wierd sound was still there. They then thought of changing the left axle assembly too and they did. Problem still there so my car was taken to another 3S, Honda Fort this time along with the same Honda engineer. And they again did the same procedure there with a car waiting for delivery replaced with my car's axles. The sound went away and a few days later it was back. Then they decided to change the brake caliper assemblies and they did. The problem was gone but back again after a few days. And next they changed the brake pads too.
After the brake pads were changed it went away for good. It finally turned out to be the pads that had a minute difference in size which was causing them to vibrate and strike ends of the caliper assembly back and forth in motion which made that wierd sound.
All this took place at a combined scattered period of about one month, my car was on 205/65-15 since the very first day and obviously this entire procedure took place on same tyres. I even asked out of stupidity that can the tyres cause this problem, the factory engineer deputed to sort my problem looked at the tyres and said: Sir iss tarah ka tyre badalnay se koi farak nahi parta.
