    Hi guys, i Hve a PUNTO 1.3 emo ,a month ago i had an accident while driving ,i lost control over the car and it went down the road. Both the driver side doors got fully damaged, radiator, subframe, front bumper got heavily damaged too..getting my car in couple of days and i am exited too ,but worried that the car should not seem to be a repaired one..fiat guys say that you won't be able to recognise da car ,it ll look n perform as original as it was before.. is it true that an makeover after accident won't make much difference ..?

    yes, if the work is done with care . I had the same problem , my bonnet, radiator, cross member, front bumper, side panel was totally damaged. After repair, My stability & performance were still original.

    Sad to know that your car met with an accident. If the repairs are carried out perfectly and the parts used are original Fiat, then I don't think so there is anything to worry. There would not be much difference in the engine performance and structural integrity unless the engine and A,B,C sections were damaged.

    Enjoy the drive and drive safely.

    Last year 2015 june, i met with an minor accident. A bus came from behind and hit my rear bumper, bumper and rear boot door smashed. also front bumper damaged.
    i gave it to the FIAT centre in chennai. Took almost one month to fix my car Palio stile. after repair i could notice the boot door is closing/locking as smooth as before.
