    Bought my Red Punto Emotion 1.3MJD on Aug-2014. Have completed 15K and thought of sharing my feelings.

    HighWay Experience
    In the last 8 months have taken the beauty on many long highway trips. I always maintain a constant speed of 100-120 KMs on the highway. The road stability, breaking is wonderful. I always got an average of 19-21 KM/l on the highway. In on of my highway trip, had driven 300+kms at a single stretch and did not find any fatigue or body pain. The driving comfort and the pleasure driving the car is superb.

    City Experience
    Driving in the city is also a charm. Can move the car in 2nd gear even on a bumper to bumper traffic. Car can easily take any potholes, speed break bumpers without any issues. Fuel efficiency is around 16KM/l.

    Service Experience
    I gave my car to Ramkay Fiat, Chennai both for 5K and 15K service. The service staffs are very courteous and the service center is maintained very well. Got a bill for Rs.7232 for my 15K service (Rs.602 per month).

    Overall Experience
    As each day passes by the love for the car is getting increased day by day. The best possession someone can have.

    @Deepak they didn't replace the break pads at the 2nd service.. I had felt the left pull around 2.5K kms. It was rectified at no cost. Sure will upload some pics.

    Heartiest congratulations on the completing one year of blissful happy ownership. Suggest you support that happiness with some nice photographs of the car. Do write about your buying and dealership experience in brief. Any mods done to the car or it is still stock?

    Wishing you many more happy mile crunching and drive safely.
