Few months back we wanted to have another car for our family, which was basically to be used by my parents. I did not want to invest more on the second car, hence wanted to get a second hand car. Came across a 2011 registered Punto Diesel Emotion model (75bhp) with an odometer reading of 60000 Km approx. Over all condition of the car was good. Checked car’s service history. Test drove it and checked few other things along with the most important dipstick check. Everything was ok. Decided to buy and after some bargaining grabbed the car at Rs.3,00,000/- during end of December 2014. After buying the car I took it to Fiat Service Station and did a complete paid servicing. They recommended me to change front shock absorbers, brake pads and the timing chain in next 2000-3000 Kms. Though it was not necessary to change timing chain for a 75bhp model, they advised me to play safe. I did as per their advice. Further, I spent around Rs.30,000/- to revamp the car (changed tires, changed seat, changed floor mat, interior treatment and exterior polishing). I almost made it to look like new. Now the total money spent on the car was Rs.3,50,000/- (car cost + expenses) 60500 Kms – Complete servicing 62134 Kms – Suspension & brake pad change 63352 Kms – Timing chain replacement Everything was fine upto 25th April 2015 (Odo reading around 69500 Kms). On a way back to home our driver noticed “Low Engine Oil Pressure” warning and warning light. He then stopped the car and checked. There was no oil in the engine. Fiat Service guys advised to top up engine oil and took it to service station. They checked everything. There was no leakage. They advised us to report if engine oil level decrease again. The car run smoothly for another 1500 Kms, but the driver again noticed the same warning yesterday (Odo reading around 71000 Kms). and he took it to service station after adding engine oil. They checked it again and shockingly informed us that engine was damaged. Heavy smoke is coming out of the dipstick. The only solution as per them is half engine replacement which will cost me around 80-90k as per their preliminary estimation. I already own a Punto (Diesel 75bhp) which is why I had faith on the vehicle and hence I went ahead with buying another one. However I am suffering both mentally and financially after my decision. I doubt if these Fiat guys can replace the half engine properly. I do not have faith on them as they are unable to provide me a valid reason for the engine damage. Again I do not know if the car will be alright after the treatment. I do not want to spend another 80-90k in an old car. How much can I recover if I sell it. Guys please guide me.
