    This is common i feel in lower gears.
    i too feel these jerks pretty much in 1 st and 2nd gear but after pressing clutch and smart use of A-pedal it goes away.
    May be the car have not experienced the bad roads and potholes :D .

    I think you advice is a bit strange in context with the reported problems. If all puntos had the problem then we could have concluded that there is design problem or wrongly engineered car.
    I dont think there is any wrong with the design of suspensions or chassis or anything at all.

    Lets help him to clear the suspensions problem and then see what he feels about his car. If he aint satisfied with the suspension on fiat cars i dont see any better car which will make him happy.

    Realtivity,

    I hope changing the shocks will solve your problem. Any idea when they have agreed to change it?

    Hi guys, i think the title reads wrong here - Excessive Engine braking i think its the feeling of drive from a diesel engine at diff revs and gear shifts you experience unlike the petrol engine.

    Nope. The title is correct. Not sure about any feelings but the technical term is Engine Braking and since it is observed in excess, hence the title.

    I also get this problem of engine braking when I get too much bad fuel.
    It is related to fuel quality
    Recently I put fuel on a bunk suggested by Italia-linea.
    Problem of bad performance solved.
    Not upto full satisfaction but upto very much satisfaction.
    I will clean egr,intercooler,inlet & then update.

    Try other bunk. Trusted bunks are now rare. Most of the time we visit particular bunk with blind faith & always send complaints of bad performance to Fiat
