I bought Fiat Punto T.wine Diesel emotion 1.3L 2012. Liked the quality and ease of ride. I didn't go on long drives though due to hectic work schedules. I did around 8K KM so far since one year of owning. I need your advise on a problem I encountered recently. I gave my vehicle for one year service, but after I got the back the vehicle, I noticed that pick up was horrible and at the same time mileage went down from 15-16 KMPL to 9KMPL. Initially I did not take this seriously for a week, then I complained to dealer who did the annual service about this problem. He told me to wait up till Fiat open their exclusive service center due in 5 days then. But on the same day, my Punto stopped in the middle of a road during peak traffic hour. It just wasn't moving even though I was able to change gears. Everything working as normal, just that the car wouldn't move . I towed the car to the dealer. This happened 10 days ago. He said the clutch needs to be replaced as it has gone bad and that it would cost me around Rs. 8K. Now I complained to Fiat service center about this issue and want this covered under warranty as I have taken extended warranty. Been talking to them for the last 10 days, finally the clutch has been replaced, but no confirmation from Fiat on who will bear the cost (Rs. 8K). Tomorrow, I will be getting my car back after 10 days, now here are my questions 1) What would cause the clutch to get burnt? I don't use clutch unless I am changing gears which isn't that frequent as I drive on Highway and there aren't many traffic lights on my way to work. 2) Shouldn't this be covered under warranty? Whatever be the outcome, my pride as the owner of Punto took a beating following this incident.
