    Bumpy Ride Punto 90HP

    Hello,

    I'm maintaining 30 on all 4 tires. The ride on the smooth road is little bumpy. The car acts as if the tire has some issues or in suspension. Had been to wheel alignment. Checked all the tires and alloys.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    I cannot claim it as bumpy exactly. The rear feels as if it is going on bad roads on regular intervals.

    it is recommended to maintain 32 in all 4 tires as per fiat manual.

    32 is recommended on full load and 29 on medium load. Tomorrow, I'm gonna re-check the tire pressure and increase it 32 and check it once again.

    Spoke to Service head and he told me that there are no such issues received from Punto. if that is the issue, they need to check the spring and the damper. You need to concentrate on the drive to notice the issue.

    Not inventing. Trying to find the solution. The ride is not flat on smooth roads. The rear bumps/ jumps regulary :(

    Ride is not smooth is like a monolisa with spectacles.
    Even my monolisa faced the same problem. I think it has to do with the air pressure.
    But I feel some time that the carpet drive that I experienced while returning from the showroom is missing these days.
    There is no punto here to compare. The TD at showroom is in bad condition.

    Bro as per my knowladge ride won't feel bumpy at 32psi.
    Well in your case as i think only two possiblities are there.
    1) Either your tyres(mostly rear,as you reported) are filled more than 32 psi. Try to check it at various places.
    2) Check your rear alloys for any small bend. Bend alloys leads to continue jumping of the car. Even go through tyres, if any slight wop/bubble present.

    Was your car involved in any accident? Or hit pothole badly?
