    Hi Binob,

    Same in my case as well. The moment i took my Punto Dynamic MJD from the showroom it started giving all sorts of noise from the front left door, from the front as well and also from the cabin light. Even my car is just a month old. I dealer couldnt do anything. I wrote to Fiat CEO Rajeev and they had sent a Fiat eng to study the issue and even he wasnt able to fix it. God knows what am i going to do this car now.....

    Relax. Get the door pad opened and check for loose wires, clamps etc.
    I am going to do the same on Tuesday. Till then, pump up some Metallica in there :)

    Don't give up so easily raj@tfi. You've made a good choice by going in for a FIAT. Some rattling is present in all cars, just that when your car is new, you tend to notice it a lot. Get a few friends to sit alongside and test. Even mine had the same trouble and dealer or TASS couldn't do anything about it. But as time went by, the noises have subsided and the ride is absolutely smooth.:p

    I too used to hear a rattling notice from the front suspension/front left door. Last week I got it checked in the TASS, and it is gone now. The reason they gave me for the rattling noise was that heater coil has comeout of its place, and they adjusted it.

    I checked it yesterday.

    On nice roads: absolutely no rattles.
    On moderately bad roads: Nothing
    On very bad roads: I checked it yesterday by taking a road which generally no body uses and is like a backyard road. I hear some sort of rattle in the doors and the boot also. I think i can ignore them for now and seriously i cant reproduce them to the TASS also when they ask for.

    Thanks Punto maniac... but my friend at times u know it hurts when u spend odd 7 lacs and get a car with some issue or the other. Time has taught me very well to be patient but at times u feel bad. I have written once again to the fiat management but didnt get any response... I plan to handle this on my own now and take the car to the workshop and see how wat else i can do....

    Raj: I'm planning to take my car to a bosch service centre here in chennai, to get the rattles and a broken reverse/fog lamp, fixed. I'll update you with the findings. I'm sure these rattles can very well be fixed. As i remember seeing is some post in one of the forums, finding them is the problem, fixing is always a very easy task.

    So if i am not wrong, this seems to be a blunder on the part of FIAT and now its clear after so much of issues people are facing, that its a major manufacturing issues with most of the cars being produced in Pune, Ranjangaon. Yet no feedback taken nor any actions taken. Who is really then accountable for all this....?

    I plan to change the door itself if it doesn't get fixed in a year, by the first service at 15,000 KM.
    Like a wise ass once said, when it comes to Fiat cars; the ownership lies with ME.
