My Seltos giving very irritating sound during breaking on rough road. This sound does not come on smooth road. Sound is more when stearing is moved to left or right on rough road while breaking. Service centre told me it is sound of ABS. But for new car breaking should be smooth without sound.

I have heard the sound as well. It is the ABS system usually. The sound happens because the tires slip on rough road surface so the ABS engages.

does anyone else experience a shudder in the brakes between 0-5km. I think it’s called creep mode. I have taken it back to get looked at but they said it’s a characteristic of the DCT 1.6 turbo Kia seltos GT line. I’ve only just started feeling it. Wasn’t there before. Dealership is saying all normal.

That sound would be your ABS. Totally normal.

I have heard the same sound, when turning at very slow speed (almost 0).

I too have heard the sound and and is so irritating and frightening. So spoke to the concerned engineer at the service station, they have told that the ABS os creating this sound. I used to have a toyota liva that too had ABS but it never created that sound.

We have to complain to KIA INDIA for such abs sound problem. It seems the sound is due to breaking bush or suspension .

How can the tyre slips on rough roads.
Although I can only comment from my personal experience, I thought a picture might help. The picture at the bottom of this reply is an intersection near my apartment. As you can see the pavement surface is smooth on one side and rather rough on the other. In some parts of the rough patch, the pavement and potholes are down to bare earth. As such, when braking, depending on which tire is on the rough patch, the anti-lock will engage because the AWD detects well spin. When the anti-lock engages, it sounds like the tires or brakes are grinding.

Of course this is just from my actual experience. Not certain if the roads are better or worse when the condition happens for you.
