Hi Friends, I have been following this forum for last 6 months and it was very helpful and gave me courage to get my beauty at home....yes I am talking about my Bossa Nova White 1.3 MJD Punto Active... My search began when I analysed my credit card bills and found that large amount of the bill was covered by the petrol expense for my Zen Estilo... My monthly run is about 2000 Km and which used to cost me around Rs 10000 per month... so I made a decision to go for a diesel car... I did not hunt for any diesel car as I always had Swift at the back of my mind...but because of below mentioned factors I was forced to look for other options: 1: My wife do not like Swift at all.. 2: The never ending issue with Maruti cars, the mysterios noises that I can feel in evey maruti car be it Zen Estilo, swift, Wagon R, RITZ... 3: Very rude behaviour by every Maruti dealer if I talk abount Swift Diesel car as if they are giving to for free. 4: Irrelevent 3 months of waiting period. For of all the other available options, I settled down for Punto because: 1: Figo: Image of Ford for its higher maintenence cost...also the looks does not do justice to diesel engine ...it seems a child is smoking a Cigar.. 2: Polo: Nice and fresh looks but its spare parts are highly priced.. 3: Tata cars: Never in my life..totally taxi material.. 4: fabia: It appealed me but did not suit my budget.. Punto: two things that appealed me while first test drive were its gorgeous looks and very good suspensions... I did not like its pick up..it lags in the the initial gears but as soon as it is into its 3rd gear it is totally a different machine.. Finally I got the delivery of my car on 13th July... at the beginning I was not pleased with its performance because: 1: very loud noise 2: turbo lag 3: not very goof FE: 14 KM/LT It was also because I was comparing it with other pertol cars... But today it is a different car altogether, it has covered 3800 Km so far in less then 2 months and all my concerns are gone: 1: noise is lowered considerably, also its first servicing is due in next few days so I hope the noise would be still lowered. 2:the drive has become very smooth althogh turbo lag is there but if you have proper gear selection that lag is not present... 3: F.E: increased to a great extent, if I drive it completely in city traffic (imagine traffic in Gurgaon) it gives me 15 KM/Lt (AC on 100% of the times) and if I partially on highway and partially in CITY it gives around 17-18 Km/Lt.. Few stats about average: I have a tendency to full the tank, it invariable gets filled up in 40 lt of diesel and runs : if completely in city: 600 Km 50 % highway and 50 % city: 700 Km Note: AC is always ON. Till now no major issue with the car...all the issue that I have faced is because of horrible service from Dhingra Motors... I am now waiting my car to be serviced (1st service) may be on this coming weekened. Can you suggest me what all things do I need to take care.
