    Thanks Sriram for the comment.

    I just got a confirmation from Fiat that they are revamping their inspection process, when I complained of lapses in final quality check of power windows and paint defect.

    All the European and American car closes the door with a THUD noise, which make it feel like we are safe in a Tank.

    Let me tell you a incident happened with me, As i am in kuwait now, had taken my Colleague to collect his car from the service center he has a Dodge Charger, and mine is Corolla. As he pulled the door to close it, my full car was shattered with the Echo sound, the way he closed, It was not his mistake. He said i am sorry for that i said fine its a Japanese. I also told him i have a Fiat at Home and it also closes with a THUD. He sad We feel safe as we enter the CAR.

    I had my punto kept idle twice, once for over a month and then shortly again after a few days idle for over two months, but I didn't face any battery issues.

    Strange encounter, need assisance.

    While driving at around 60kph, in the main road in relatively traffic free time, all of a sudden encountered a ball (not sure whether rubber/ cricket ball) and could not avoid it and front wheel ran over it with a thud, upon inspection i see nothing abnormal. Should the wheel be checked for alloy bend ? Does such objects when encountered by wheel in medium to high speed harmful to the alloys ?

    Kindly confirm.

    If there are no symptoms , just drive on. Attending to each suspicion will create complications.. Keep going

    Posted at 2:14 AM. Goes to show how much we love our FIATS. Wonder anyone else facing the same situation, in another brand car, would even think twice about it :D

    @sriramr9 - Like Abdul said, if you are not sensing anything unusual, like strange noise or car pulling in one direction, just drive on.
