    Seems like the Dejire owner read up about our world famous MASA Scientist Dr.Yashik's space shuttle theory and tried to implement it. :D

    Hope no one was hurt!

    Sorry to see accident. Damage is not so huge.
    Still rack & lower arm damaged?
    It,s hard to believe by seeing damage. If steering rack & lower arm is bent then alloy wheel should also damage. But alloy wheel seems ok

    BTW check alloy wheel. Small invisible bent may cause imbalanced tyre & wrong alignment.

    Most of the regulars on this route would know it:

    There is a flyover near vaniyambadi (TN) on Bangalore - Chennai NH46, which has a really sharp curve (almost a right angle). This can be dangerous if one is not cautious.

    My punto's tyres (165/80 R14) have squealed on it couple of times due to myself not being careful enough.
    The two instances were:
    1. I was lost in some thought listening to loud music. Speed was 140 kmph.
    2. Was chatting away with my co-passenger. Speed was 130 kmph

    maybe it wouldn't have happened if my punto had wider shoes.

    I was at ABS motor workshop for some squeaking sound in the passenger side window & i saw two accidental cars parked side by side. One was Indica whereas other one was Punto.

    1. Indica:

    It appears that driver must have got hurt very badly. May he survive this tragedy & almighty bless him.

    2. Punto:
    Very bad accident. Certainly one of the fierce impacted Punto i have come across in Photos at least.

    It looks like the way engine bay is messed up that it's one fierce head on clash & one can bet that driver & co-driver must not have survived. Think again.

    Cabin inside is ridiculously & astonishingly perfect. Don't think driver would have got a scratch anywhere, forget any harm to the passenger.

    In-fact windows were still opening & closing with the same thud & voice. They weren't even misaligned. The whole car was covered in MUD. Looks like it rolled quite a lot roadside before it halted. Airbags were deployed.

    One can see how unlucky or lucky can be these car owners. That Indica didn't have anything challenging as compared to Punto but still it proved very fatal for driver. Sorry i don't want to play any guessing games further as it feels terribly bad.

    But once again i bow to FIAT for saving few more innocent lives!!
