    I usually tend to avoid returning to Blore on a Sunday evening after a lond drive. Be it from which ever place, entering Bangalore would be a pain.

    Nope, your pics arent visible

    Because it had worn out as my driving was about 6okms avg in B angalore traffic everyday..still I feel it should have lasted more..

    Heavy screeching sound was heard when I braked...and it was like pads itting drum..I had escalted this issue to FIAT bosses too..

    I was told being soft pads they wear out soon if driven in heavy traffic...but they indirectly hinted that they should do better on longevity of pads somehow..

    Only disappointment till now with car...

    @ shams, Yeah I agree Kanakpura road is much better than the Mysore higway. I was referring to in general. For eg, when am using NH 4, on Sunday evenings there will be massive vehicles at Tumkur toll plaza :A

    @ puntosat, sorry for going OT

    As mentioned earlier...I had a problem where inside of my left back bumper was rubbing with tyre on acute turns in ghats.....pic below..

    I had give my car to AAdya motors yest...they arranged for a pick up & drop ...free of cost!!!!

    Service guy checked it and said..someday someone must have hit car from behind on bumper ..yes there were couple of minor hits..where the bumper went in and had come back...without even a scratch :)

    But this might have caused the inside to move by a cm...

    They removed bumper and did some work and now things are normal...and working fine

    They charged Rs 200 ..which inludes washing outside & inside out (interior polish)+ labour cost...amazing!!!!

    They also got all typres polished black & shiny...

    Kudos to Aadya for such great service....best part was free pickup n drop :)


    In addition,they also rectified a minor problem with CD player..for free...


    Now who says FIAT service is bad...

    BTW..I had reported two weeks back about my friend's problem with re-fitting Vento brake shoes...he has still not got appointment after 20 days !!!!

    I'm grinning...I rubbed salt on his wound...by calling him and explaining above ....on how easy & good our experience is...
