Aceman, Thanks for sharing the experience. Kudos to Fiat and the RSA team who braved the weather and reached the spot to take charge. It is apreciable on their part to help out rival brands during the course of misery.:drinks I think you or your relatives should take it personally to ensure that those open manholes should be attended ASAP by interacting with the relevant authorities. TFIian responsibility doesnt end with just reporting you see. Maybe put up boards warning the vehicles accessing the road. Agree that the Wagon R did have some major damage coz the car must have hit the manhole at a speed. In your case it was more like soft landing since you knew the location of the manholes.
