    My 90hp Punto was in the A.S.S. for rear wheel bearing fault. Got a call from SA that my rear dead axle is due for upgradation. So he is getting that done for me car. Mine is a Jan '11 manufactured car.

    I will post the differences observed after I get my car. He said he will try to deliver my car today evening itself. I am expecting/hoping that the thuds observed on potholes & speed breakers will vanish.

    Raj,

    The thuds will vanish once you fit the upgraded GC kit. That is the biggest difference I noticed apart from not scraping anywhere , when I did the upgrade last week. The down side is that the car is much more stiffer now and the luxurious feeling while coasting over broken roads is reduced / absent. So after the GC upgrade its a kind of mixed feeling especially for those who are used to the old suspension. The new car 2012 buyers will not know anything about the old, and for them this new setting will be the benchmark which they will enjoy.

    Yesterday I got call from Pandit Auto (Pune) saying they will be replacing of my Punto Emotion Pk petrol. Today morning I gave the car to them. Does anyone have any idea why exactly this is being replaced.

    I tried asking service advisor but the answer was not satisfcatory

    He said, there were some problem for some cars earlier and hence Fiat has decided to replace it in all Cars of that specific batch
