    Went on a short trip to a place called Devarayanadurga.. around 70 kms from Bangalore off Tumkur road. Its at a height of around 1150 mtrs/3700+ ft. Nice for a days drive.

    Theres a temple on the top, and a deer park close by which was closed when we reached there. The climb to the top was pretty nice with narrow roads surrounded by thick greenery.

    All in all a good place if want an outing with very less time to spare.

    at 27000+ kms my punto's brakes have started making sound.. could it be anything other than worn out pads..
    same thing had happened around 14k kms also. i delayed it a bit till 16k only to loose my brake discs also!!
    seems its pretty normal phenomenon in punto/linea to change brake pads every 15k or so if driven aggressively
  4. Maybe true.... cos I got my brake pads changed only at 30000 kms. I drive hard wherever possible but most of the time its normal driving.

    completed 35000 kms today. off late i have been hearing a whistling sound on pushing the accelerator pedal. its regular and can be heard very clearly while driving but only when accelerating. had shown to SC in a hurry without giving them much time, they were not able to get anything with a quick test drive and under the bonnet check.
    has anyone experienced this before. Any suggestions are welcome.

    The whistling sound can sometimes be heard when driving on a road with trees on both sides. Do you pass through any such road(s)?

    This happened with me when me and my father went for the PDI of the Jet in our Palio. I asked my father, "Is there any turbo in the Palio?" :D

    This can be one of the many reasons. I am not 100% sure.
