    SA is giving you load of bull, none of the cars come like that. Can you upload pictures so that we can better judge.

    Demand a different car if you are not satisfied with the current one.

    Are u talking about the grooves on the lower right-side of the driver seat [and vice-versa for passenger side] from where the seat belt emerges from ???

    The plastic around that area tends to break due to frequent usage , but shouldnt be happening on a brand new car !!!

    Exactly...
    Should I ask him the other car?
    Frankly I am not satisfied with the car that he showed me.
    Please suggest me.

    If u r not satisfied with the car , better dont go for it ...

    Look for other Puntos with the same dealer , check for the same problem ...
    If all other Puntos have the same problem , try another dealer .
    If that delaership also has Punto with the same problem , then u may have to live with it .

    Though tedious , but at the end of the day u will have peace of mind .

    Thoroughly go through the PDI checklist ...

    Which dealer is it in Hyderabad?

    Tell them straight forward that you don't want this car and do tell them that you are from TFI...

    Its a Rs. 25 Plastic cover/ cap !

    srikanth - Get that plastic cover replaced if the all other things in the car during PDI is alright.

    My Punto 1.4 has been making squeal sound (only for few seconds ) recently every time I start it after parking in rain . Could it be some belt loose/tight or water in belt ?

    On the left side of the boot, there are two Velcro straps with hooks - I use that to strap my warning triangle and it sits there fine.
