Hi All, Finally I took delivery of my Punto on 31-October-2013. This being my first car is a very happy moment in my life. I had been a fan of palio right from college days and wanted to buy one sometime. Even after the thought of buying a car started I was hunting for second hand Palios. However, did not have enough patience to undergo any kind of niggle in the initial days/years of ownership and so decided on a new one. Friends warned against Fiat and suggested to go for Swift VDI/ZDI or I 20. I did not want to go for a Maruthi/Hyundai, both of them being too common on road. I did not even take them for a test ride. Test drove an Emotion model from Ramkay, with full load on various kinds of road for some 20Kms or so. We were fully satisfied with the ride quality, suspension, braking and build quality, and I went ahead and booked Emotion within a week. As there are just 2 dealers in Chennai, I visited both of them before booking. I did not find much difference in price between both these although many said RDC was cheaper. Sales experience at Ramkay was much better. I had just went to check on the OTR price and I booked the very next day. OTR came to 7.8 for Emotion. Looks like one could have got a better deal if one can produce RC copy of any model car. I did not add any accessories other than the ones provided by dealer as part of OTR. 1. Mud flaps 2. Door Sil - Dont know why I got this! 3. 3M Polish 4. Neck Rest 5. Car Cover 6. Floor Mats Did not take much photos, as it was rainy, car was mostly full of mud. Drove the car in week ends to get a feel of it and had been taking to office for past 4 days. Did not check out the Blue and me and the other options, as I first want to get myself comfortable with the car. Since I have not driven a car in the past, there were quite a few mistakes that I did and learnt my lessons. Yet to get RC book from dealer and looks like it will take some 15-20 days. Dealer is yet to give the extended warranty copy. Dealer did not give RSA Manual and just gave the list of dealers and service stations across India. I have seen a pdf of the RSA manual in team fiat and I think the dealer should give it. Anyone who bought recently got the RSA Manual? Got a couple of small dents and scratches here and there, and mostly all of these happened when I was taking reverse. One of them was caused by a bus for no mistake of mine. Realized that I should always distance myself from buses/lorries/load vehicles. The first thing I did after this was pasting 'L' and will keep if for at least 2 months. This made me realize that I should have opted for reverse parking sensors. Shall fit them when I go for first service at 5000Kms. I shall post pictures of these dents sometime and please suggest the best means to get them rectified. Sometimes I feel those dents/scratches are very very minor and need not spend time or money on them, however sometimes I feel it would be nice to get them cleared! Covered 300+ KM so far. In signals/ bumper to bumper traffic, 2nd gear does a good job, I am generally able to quickly move from halt in 2nd gear. Is this the correct way or I should always start moving in first gear and then shift up? Looking forward for a long drive sometime soon. Will update you guys as soon as I make it.
