    Re: What do I feel after 20000 kms? And now After 45000 KMs.

    Grandeur, The Photos are great. The longest drive that I covered was chennai-banglore-shimoga-Goa in my Alto. After buying Punto I haven't got a chance to go for a long drive. Is there any noticeable change after moving to 15" Linea alloys?

    @sandeep - dude, Iam just back from my 45000km service today at fortune, nerul. Had an excellent experience and every major point I listed got done.

    I suggest you write all your points on a piece of paper. Things just fall in place when you go prepared. Iam also sure that you already done that :p

    All the best...

    You should surely plan some long drives on punto..u'll love it. Yeah 15'' has made ride smoother and more comfortable to handle better.

    Thanks Tony. Are you back in India? Let's meet up buddy, will plan the meet soon.

    You Rock!!!

    Thanks for all help buddy! I did exactly what you mentioned here. I had listed down all the stuff I wanted to get done and instructed the Service Engineer on what all things needs to be done and with extra care!!!

    Thanks for picking me from service center and dropping me at my home!

    Nice to hear about the after sales service in Mumbai. ::T
    Grandeur, any idea why the whole clutch assembly needed replacement at 35000Km? Isn't it too low?

    I am starting to believe the other way about service over here in Chandigarh.

    - It took me 3 visits to the TATA FIAT dealership to get the Door sill plates released from their possession. They were not selling them because it wasn't showing in their stock. :hit
    - No 7.5A fuse available in Chandigarh. One of the dealership hasn't even heard about it. I'm using a 10A fuse but plan to use a 5A for the time being. :sadblue
    - FIAT Punto carpet mats not available at 3 dealerships in the region.
    - The service booklet was left unfilled when first service was done in Nov 2010. I am holding on to the proof of first service (bill) till I have time to visit Mohali again.

    It is common in all FIAT cars to replace clutch in early odometer. I replaced my Clutch Assly. at 33000 KM

    I was also changing clutch assly. of my UNO at every 25-30 K.

    FIAT cars are heavy & robust.
    So each time of clutching & declutching more work load comes on Clutch as compared to lighweight babies made in Korea/Japan

    I changed first Clutch Assly. of my Maruti Alto at 85000 KM. ::D

    Hydrualic clutches are more delightful for using.
    But as they have no free play, so they are more sensitive about wear & tear.
