Hi All, I joined the Forum a good 4 or 5 months back. Got the 30k service done a couple of months back and now the ODO reading is around 37K. I will keep it short and simple. Initially when the car was new and that was the time when i was used to palio 1.9D, i had some trouble with the driving because of the tremendous low end torque in the 1.9D(I am spoilt). The problems i faced so far: Rear suspension gives a squeaking noise when moved over speed breakers or when turning the car on a slope(TASS fixed it number of times, including replacing rear suspension, but no solution, makes me feel as if i am driving TATA ACE MAGIC) Door rattles(Again TASS fixed them but they re-appear) Steering Noise(as if there a small stone in a tin can) when driven on roads with small undulations(Fixed but they added another problem, one of the steering mount switch makes a slight rattling sound) Steering wobble at80-120KMPH speeds (After a lot of research and time waste it was found to be a bad front right sturt and they replaced it under warrenty and also added strut caps as the rain water was dripping down and that was the reason for the strut going kaput) Alloy wheel bent( replaced it , costed me around 10k) Blue and me Box went kaput in the 3rd month of ownership( replaced under warrenty) Music system went kaput once the blue and me box was changed( replaced under warrenty) and the regular service till now, changing the brake pads for the first time today at 37K, the SA says that there are two types of brake pads one costs 2k and the other costs 3k and both of them are not interchangable, so there are two versions, not sure which one is mine. The car is 80% driven on NH7 and this is where i felt that the 5th gear is not adequate, till 120KMPH the car will do fine and beyond that you get a feeling that the engine is under tremendous stress. Also the wind noise is a very big irritant once you are above 100KMPH(sure one can feel it on most indian cars) steering could have been lighter for city use and also the clutch in city traffic will give the left leg good excercise What puts me off is the small irritants and keep coming up. The good Bits now. Its a bliss to drive on highways. The brakes are awesome and I love them the most. The steering is precise. But i still find driving palio was less stressful then driving a punto on long drives(comments are welcome), i know this is individual preference. All in all its a good experience till date and will i buy a Fiat again, well i will- the logic is simple, if you want a Drivers car typically european that doesnt burn your pocket then its got to be fiat.
