    The indicator rises extremely slowly if you have not turned OFF your car when getting it filled. It might take more than 30 mins in some cases. Else if you turn of and Start the engine again, the Indicator gets to the correct position almost immediately. It's the same in all punto's i've seen and believe its the same for Linea's too.

    I switch of my car while filling. So never observed this issue. One thing I noticed is that it instantly shows the new level after turning on the engine. In my alto and fathers getz I have seen it take lot of time to reach the correct level after filling.

    About the gear knob issue, my gear knob had moved nearly 90 degrees clockwise compared to the correct position and when rotated back to the correct position, was found to be loose. Are you facing a similar problem?

    I solved it myself by unscrewing and taking out the knob, stuffing a lil newspaper in it and screwing it back on.

    I never refill petrol with the engine ON. Never. It's one of the fundamental rules I try to follow. The others are - I never switch off engine keeping any electrical accessories (interior lights, Music system, Headlights etc etc) ON. At home also, usual sequence followed while switching off TV or any electrical item is - Power off button of TV (not remote off button) and only then main switch OFF. After all, these all are machines and these little things cause issues any time.

    I got the car back from TAFE ... the service was OK , but the attitude and delivery was pathetic. Mr. Tamil was the SA.When i left my car, i specifically asked Mr.Tamil whethere to leave the idol on the car or remove it,he asked me to leave it as such as it was pasted to the dashboard. When i recieved the car, it was not there , the base of the idol was broken and left in the glove box and the idol is missing... i got so irritated and tensed up because it was a gift from me to my wife and its expensive as well. You could see that in the snaps on first few pages... shouted at him, checked up with Mr.Tensigh, but nothing worked... its LOST...

    My car was partially washed and dashboard was partially polished... fare enough to say YUCK!!!...
    I hvae to take my car to 3M or somewhere...
