    hello,


    I wanted to buy a new car, so i called up the fiat dealer in my neighborhood, which was opened a month ago. The drive quality is just mesmerizing. The pleasure of driving is absolutely unmatched in this segment. The SP told me about an unbeatable offer on punto. i am getting a discount of 1.1Lakh in exchange of my good ol fiat uno 1.7ELX(3.5lakh ODO) , which is in working condition whose market value is 40k. So, net price would be 7Lakh.

    I wanted to know about its maintenance, so i checked it out on TFI and i was shocked to see that overall maintenance cost is way way to high than what i had expected. I also own a figo, whose maintenance cost worked out to be cheaper by 30% than punto's .

    I want to know, after considering the discount and the additional service cost, will it work out to be a good deal?

    I guess you are over nervous with the cost of maintaining the Punto. Which car offers the maintenance interval matching the Punto's? Which customer support is so customer centric when it comes to maintanence issues when compared to Punto? I think you should stop worrying about the maintenance expenses and start enjoying the car. Go ahead with the deal, you will not regret it. Finally it is your choice.

    I dont think Punto is expensive to maintain if you service it on time.

    I own Punto 90HP since July 2011 (49000 on odo) and I spent around Rs. 21500 on maintenance including:

    1st Free Service @ 5000 = Rs. 0
    2[SUP]nd[/SUP] Free Service @ 15000 = Rs. 4500
    3[SUP]rd[/SUP] Free Service @ 30000 = Rs. 7500
    4[SUP]th[/SUP] paid service @ 45000 = Rs. 9500 (Major service: Change all lubricants & coolent)

    So per km service cost is Rs. 2.30 approximately which is good for a diesel vehicle.

    (4500+7500+9700)/49000 = Rs. 0.438/- per km; i.e. 44 paise per km
