    WOW... i brought mine on 22-Dec exactly 1 year :) this just a co-incidence?
    I clocked ~2800kms till date and got my 1st free service done last week... machine is sounding great, real test will be the Jaipur-Ahmedabad-Pune road trip that I am taking up this Saturday...

    3rd Service Report : All fluids topped up - washed - Cleaned - Delivered : but the wheel balancing was also done (Was told so by the service advisor), but again got it done + the alignment... had this wobbly steering at spped of 60-80 kmph noticeable on Highways (Smooth Road)

    So thats it for now... road trip report will come in soon after i return or may when I am free in Pune..

    Today I got the feedback call from Fiat, it was a indian chap and with good english..he asked me to rate serveral parameters between 1-10...rated between 7-9 and exterior cleaning specially the windshield was wiped with wet cloth, leaving a trail mark of dried up water droplets..caused bad visibility during night driving... took up a spray bottle + wiper blade from scrotch brite..some old news paper.. sprayed the water, cleaned with the wiper blade, sprayed again & cleaned with news paper.

    It was sparkling clean once again !!

    Best way to flow the water from the windscreen or the rear windscreen is open the cigarette and rub the tobacco with few 2 drop of water on the glass, water will not stay at one place, it will jsut slip off.

    Best way, cut the ciggarate and rub the tobacco on the front and rear windscreen with 2 drops of water, The water will slip off from the windscreen.
