    HI ...Finally few pictures of my Exotic Red Punto MJD 2009 kms 40000 ( Secondhand) after selling my new Ford Figo petrol 3 years old & 9000 driven only.

    I purchased from one of the Huyndai dealer from there used car division which certifies the car is in good condition & accident free.

    First of all i would like to thank them for giving this well maintained Exotic Red beauty (actually i was particular of this color) , well i dint understand y a fiat guy would exchange for a Hyundai car ?..

    Hence thoroughly got the car checked by one of my friend who owns a Bosch car service centre
    he said car is good & u can go ahead but he said parts are costly & difficult to get ( this is common review from all) but this time i dint wanted to listen my mind again & wanted to go with my heart :p..but he said generally here parts dont go off so fast .. again the question was still going in my mind y someone will sell fiat Gp for a Hyundai ? So for double check again i showed to my friends cousin who works as service engineer in Volkwagon..he did the TD & general checkup & said car is ok u can buy.. Now no further delay before i again start listening to my mind..hehe i paid & purchased the car ( but this question was always running in my mind y someone will sell GP for a hyundai car?)

    So really wanted to test this personally for satisfaction..took the delivery of the car & waited for a weekend.. i stay here in Bangalore so planned a short trip to Yercaud

    Yercaud trip was amazing same day return was planned & believe me it was one of the best self drive experiance i have had.. would like to write the whole review on the trip soon .
    ( felt satisfied after the trip that i got a very nice car...only felt suspensions were little hard & there was light pull on the left) would like to join any TFI meet here in Bangalore & members td my car & give the expert review on what should b fixed.
    But iam satisfied on this purchase no regrets & my 1st diesel car & 1st secondhand car.. with only one question in mind (y would someone sell GP for a hyundai)

    This is really a million dollar question. Last month I met a Fiat GP owner at IS Motors Roorkee, when I went for my Linea's 2nd service. I spent a good time with him discussing about Fiat cars. He said that he too wants to sell his Punto. When I asked him reason for doing so, he just said that its now more than three years with him & he wants to have some new car. Actually what I realized that this guy was having 4-5 cars at home so its just a routine thing. Otherwise he didn't have any complaint with Punto. Infect Punto is his primary mode of travel & he is in very much love with Punto.
    So there are people who just change car for a sake of getting a new car.

    Congratulations on the red rocket. Hope you will enjoy many more miles of driving and mile crunching without any of the above questions.:redcar

    I suppose the warranty on the car would expire sometime this year - any thoughts on that?:confused:

    My guess is - not possible at this stage. Earlier Fiat used to offer 2+2 ys as warranty but lately they are offering 3+2 yrs. So you can probably try for one more year of warranty.
