    Hi all,
    First of all thanks for all for accepting me as a part of TEAM FIAT.

    I am from Kerala, working with a Software company in Mumbai, so staying in Mumbai with my wife and kid.
    I am not a guy who is keen on the FE figures, what I need was a solid build, a big car feel good performance and looks. Grande Punto was shortlisted and booked a Med. Grey 1.2 Active petrol from Balaji Autocars, Kalyan. Faced many issues during the sales process, all problems got resolved when I escalated the matter to FIAT. I will post a detailed ownership review later...

    Now the car has done 2000+ and never let me down. The small issues I faced with the car was
    • Glove box was not closing properly[/*:3r6ff21d]
    • Door beading came off from the rear RHS door[/*:3r6ff21d]
    • Fuel lid opener lock was broken.[/*:3r6ff21d]

    All the issues were fixed and I have no regrets in the buying decision. One of my friends, who was going to book a VW Polo booked 1.3MJD Emotion after driving my car.

    Happy revving...

    N.B: Yesterday when I was driving back home form office I saw 3 puntos coming fronm the other side and all of them flashed as if saying "Hello", I bet this is not going to happen with any other brand. :clap

    True, One day when my friend was struggling in Mumbai traffic to take a U-turn, one Punto guy stopped and gave way for him.

    Welcome Rajeev. Nice pics. Love this color.
    I've driven 1.2 Petrol Punto. The car is absolutely "Pin Drop Silent" inside the cabin and feels awesome. No engine noise enters the cabin. I was so impressed that I found 1.4 to be having some noise inside the cabin even though its ok for petrol standards.
