    Today I am mindblown!!

    Mindblown to see fantastic changes in Fiat service center in my Locality.


    Now they have separate Fiat only work shop and lot of New faces, all less mouth and more work .

    I went there hesitatingly remembering all those instance of ignorance and slack. But Viola,Those incidents are History.

    As usual I expected unpleasant words like "Buzy,come later,keep it here we will have a look "etc..But none..moment I proposed my grief,they brought the EBD computer and connected to my Punto and fault was Identified. RHS ABS sensor failed.

    They voluntarily suggested cleaning of sensor which may resolve the issue if Im lucky,else order a new one which will arrive within a week.

    The Abs Failure warning disappeared ..My heart said WOW,Am I dreaming ?

    He gave his visiting card and asked me to call if the warning comes again..unfortunately it did.

    End of the day I was a Happy Fiat Owner...a very happy indeed.

    32500km on Odo.All stock Punto90hp but brake pad changed,

    Lucky you. Understandably you are trading the 90 Hp for the monster 145 hp. All the best. I hope the 90hp gets an equally passionate owner. Will be waiting for the ownership review of the Abarth Punto.

    just looking at the kms covered in your 90 hp in 5 years i believe you have made a great and sensible decision.

    After 5 years of ownership I would say,Fiat is a sensible buy,especially considering safety and overall cost of ownership.
    Safety, I mean not just the shell, but braking as well road on behaviour,Punto excels ahead of rest.

    Most of my journeys had been long from Kannur to Bangalore,Coimbatore,Kochin,Kottayam,Trivandrum,Mangalore,Chennai. It was comfortable and fuel efficient returning above18-19kmpl most of the time.

    No,The filter were replaced recently.As she didn't run much, Fass suggested minimum essential replacements only. Great savings.
    Happy ownership.
