40,000 kms completed I'm extremely pleased to let you all know that my beauty has completed 40,000kms as of yesterday. As expected she is running beautifully. List of changes my beauty went through in the past year. 1.) struts changed (Under the advice of concorde SA to eliminate suspension spring noise.) Verdict = It was useless and i lost 3000rs for the change. Later some juggad with the drive shaft solved the problem and i've driven about 5000kms since then and there is no noise. 2.) EGR, intercooler and manifolds were cleaned about 2000kms ago and the car is running smooth now. FE = I'm constantly getting 15-15.3kmpl in the city and this entire reading from 30k-40k was mostly city driving only . So i'm very happy considering blr traffic Things that need attention My clutch is heavy and its become hard although there is no signs of any component failure i'm planning to replace them shortly. My upcoming trip to Leh would definitely do well with a new clutch so I'm just waiting for it to run another few 1000kms before i change it. Cost of ownership My ownership report is here http://www.teamfiat.co.in/dealershi...maintenance-cost-ownership-16.html#post164035 It has hardly changed by much. Verdict, I couldn't have been more happy choosing a FIAT than i am now. I'm extremely happy with whatever its given me and even to this day there have been only minor instances where I've hated the TASS but never FIAT as a brand. Given a choice i'm ready to pick up another FIAT.(But i wont sell this ABARTH!!) Upcoming trips Shortly i will be moving out to Leh so very soon I would probably be updating the 50,000kms ownership report as well ;-) PS :: Thanks to TFI for all the help rendered thus far in solving many issues and niggles i've faced in my 3.5 yrs of ownership. Hoping to see many more happy days with TFI and my ABARTH Mods :: Can you please change the title to "Me and my Abarth - ownership report"
