    Param, not only second gear but also first, third, fourth and fifth gear. Every gear has it's own speed at which the car should be able to maintain a particular rpm for maintaining combustion in the engine. In fifth gear, the car can cruise at a speed of around 40-45kmph IIRC. Though this is not recommended but it is more like Cruise Control rather than Automatic transmission. ;)

    @ Param, i was going to ask the same question, even on the 3rd Gear it cruises @ around 30km/hr. The MID FE also starts to jump during this pattern, since last 2-3 days i am trying to drive on this mode when possible & the FE has drastically increased IMO.:p

    @ Gurjinder, thanks for enlightening on "Anti Stall" feature.

    I would advise you to stop doing this to your car. This is more of lugging the engine which isn't good for it's health.

    Guys this thread is so amazing... i just read all the 41 pages and was wondering y are all these features not advertised or even listed in Fiat's website????

    I just want to know if the following feature is available. Imagine if all the windows are down and if you get out of the car and lock it using remote locking will all the windows wind up by itself?? (my friend had got this done on his swift which was a so cool)

    Waiting for my Punto 90 horses ... Show room guys said Monday delivery but its been postponed to Friday... :(
  6. I tried child locks for the first time. It prevents the door when on " - " however when I turned it back to " | " it still doesn't work from inside??? Whats wrong?

    It works for me, try clockwise and anti clockwise combinations.

    that must be a snapped cord or a loose cord to get the lock position back. get it checked at tass.
    they willl fix that.
    the door pads need to be removed
