    Hi...I bought Punto Evo 1.2 Lit Petrol Dynamic recently. In city driving, with the AC on, if the speed falls to10-20 KMPH, I come down to 2nd gear and the engine fails to pick up again and stops. Is this normal considering the weight of the car? Should I go to 1st Gear in such situations? Or should I switch off the AC?
  2. Slot into first... The AC isn't the issue... Critical rpm and speed need to comply with each other... Its normal

    I too recently got my hands on 1.3 MJD Linea and had faced similar situation.
    I stalled the car a few times.
    Before I crack again I have ensured to switch off the AC & music system.
    I agree to the point we need to slot into gear 1 if speeds fall below 10-20km/hr.
