    .

    redbull you are absolutely right.
    everytime i press accelerator pedal it brings a smile on my face, so is the case with brakes as if the rubber got cemented to tarmac -icing on cake.

    but should we not mention about those long and awkward clutch paddle;the worst achilles heel . again need getting used to and gets forgotten.

    in begining, acceleration was bit painful after getting used to it there is no issue . but yes when overtaking at lower speed sometimes it is bit annoying compared to other cars in its segment.

    the best part is i thought my previous car indica vista gave most comfortable ride with out any fatigue .
    but punto is in a different leauge. punto doesnt makes me feel i was driving for long period. credit goes to its super reflex steering and inspiring brakes.

    Right Said Jaydev, it handles the curves like cutting butter with a hot knife, and believe me i was on my way back from the Nashik Church and i had almost given the Honda City a hard Time, I touched 135 kmph twice on a straight stretch but he used to overtake me on a long stretch, (mine is a 1.2 ACTIVE), but on the cornering it was superb hats off to PUNTO, when stopped at Kalyan for a Tea break i saw that same Honda City also parked in the same Parking lot, Believe me the guy who was driving the City can to me saying wat is the CC of the car, when i said its 1.2, he was amazed and asked me if he can sit on the driver seat, I could read his face he was just admiring the Car. :dancing

    tony you are absolutely right. many people often come asking about our punto, they want to sit in it and definitely admiration guaranteed. it feels good that my friends who were against buying or recommending fiat are themselves planning for it. at present they are eagerly looking forward to every kind of reviews and sources available..!!

    with my punto i hit the nail too hard for them to deny the potentials of fiat.

    Job well done Jaydev, FIAT officials are you listening, we at the TFI's convience people to go for Fiat brands by explaning them about the car, Come give more attractive commercials of the Newspapers and Tv's.Many Indians donno the True factors of Punto and Linea, they just see it as the other Japanese / Korean cars. And steps back due to A.S.S that has been rooted in their mind :hit
    My cousin who had a Palio SLX wanted to go for Ritz, i asked him to come to my place, and told him to have a punto for a ride, he was so admirring th punto that he convinced my sis-in-law (His wife) that we will go for Punto forget ritz saying there are so many great option available and its a Italian Car.H will book the Gp in 1st week of Jan 2011. :car
