    Thanks guys. But as a precautionary measure will get the hoses checked as my car has completed 3 years.

    Yes, the hiss is on. Yesterday i noticed that the hissing sound is coming up when i steer to the extreme ends. This sound was not coming up early, i wonder why it has started now! should i check the steering oil levels?

    While parking and taking a U-turn we cannot avoid turning it to maximum.I didn't know this issue though I was familiar with the hiss sound.

    its completely normal no problem. Avoid holding the steering at the extreme positions for extended periods as Gurjinder pointed out and always park the car with wheels straight.
  6. @lowflier - I am not sure of the beep sound. I am not getting beep sound when I crank the engine.
    One more observation - The sound via speaker is reproducible when the USB is plugged in and autoplay is ON. I was not able to reproduce it with no USB during service. Now that I have iPod connected, I can reproduce it. Additionally Fiat manual says that you need to wait at least till the "lock" light is gone before cranking. If you wait for slightly more (few additional lights to go away) then the cranking works normally. I plan on taking my vehicle again to service station with USB.

    New Red Punto - Lot of Noise from AC Fan

    Hello Guys,

    I have bought new red color punto last week....Since the 2nd day, there is a lot of noise from the AC fan outside whenever I switch ON the AC......Its a lot of noise.....I have gone to the workshop and the technician told me that this noise is very common in Punto and its with every car......I dont believe him.....Is this a common thing ? Can you tell me what exactly this shud be ? I own a swift car as well....never came across such AC fan noise......Pls advice guys.....Does anybody from you also facing this problem.....?
  8. Best wishes for your new car.

    Is you new car is Petrol? I own a 1.2 and fan noise is loud after a/c upgrade. However, check other Puntos and compare.

    the older model puntos n lineas had a problem of poor cooling issues due to faulty O-ring etc, which were replaced later by the SVC.
    I think the AC fan noise is quite high in fiats, i ve heard many, commenting about the same with my car as well.
