    Mmm... But even the remote lock was not working. I was in hurry to reach my office. So I didn't insist him on that. What could be the reason? Should I go for one more round of PDI?.

    Fiatians.. i am happy to announce that finally i have my Punto with me. Quit busy with work and hence couldn't post in time.

    With God's blessings my car registration happened on 12-12-12 and we have taken our car for delivery on 14-12-12 once all my requested accessories were fitted. Here it is...





    Car was fitted with Floor mates, Mud Guard, Reverse Parking Sensor, Door Sill, Sun Film as free accessories. I have done body under coating in 3M costing me 3.5k. This is my first car and still i am wondering how i have adopted with my Punto. Everyone wonders how i was able to drive like an experienced guy within a week. I feel my Punto has something special in it. I have already driven more than 400KM now. Car was very smooth in power delivery. To my surprise my Punto even picks up at 3rd gear as slow as between 15~20Km speed without requiring any downshift in gears (where as even my 2 wheeler requires a down shift). There's mild speed set in 2nd gear which i loved while moving in traffic. Suspension is good with improved ground clearance. Rear seat can accommodate 3 passengers easily and even 4 if they are not over sized. Has enough 380 litres boot space. There's a kind of slope near the clutch where our legs can be rested when we dont use the clutch. . Now i understand why Fiatians are crazy with Fiat cars and now i too joined the club. Overall i am enjoying my ride and i am very much confident to say that i have chosen the right and best car for us.

    Fiatians now i need to maintain my car well.. so plz give me your valuable suggestion specially on cleaning the body, windscreen and glasses. Your recommendations and suggestions are much appreciated..
