    Sanglikar :) Steering feedback is the feedback you get at your palms of the road on which you are driving. If you go over the pothole or your famous sangli phata jaisingpur undulated roads you will feel the road surface and its texture at your steering wheel while driving.

    Also when you steer your car you will the the accountability of every inch and angle you are turning at. This is steering feedback which is very good in fiat cars.

    Make sure during alignment the technician dint loosen up the adjusting sleeve too much.

    I can imagine, i know those roads in and out :) my native is from that place itself incidentally. But punto soaks up those roads very well.

    You can compare the handling out your car with ford fiesta, ford figo, cruze and a few more which have good hydraulic steering units.

    i have never driven other cars for more than 200 Kms except Hyundai Santro(diven from Solapur to Hyd),if i compare santro with punto,punto is always the best.dont know what kind off steering unit does santro has ?
    the cars mentioned by you have to search if any of my friend is having it, to know the difference...

    @ ganges as per my info only Tata & fiat use HPS.

    Rest all have electronic power steering. Power steering motor is used.
    EPS doesn't have steering feedback. It works like video game joystick.

  10. well, been following the thread closely. i'd like to know why Fiat has chosen the Hydraulic over the Electronic Power Steering? Does the hydraulic one need more maintenance?
