    Got trouble !!! ... Did anyone faced false breaking on there new Punto 1.2 ??? The break is failing abruptly like I couldn't find out on what circumstance it failing up? Sometime in 2nd gear while in traffic, or some in highway when in 4th or 5th gear (very rare experience in 4th or 5th)... It's very frequent in heavy city traffic drive like in 2nd gear, like as soon as it fails if if press once more there after it catches the break, so now every time I need to break in slow traffic I have to paddle atleast twice for no taking any chance... And it's not that everytime it is happening, like I can't recreate the problem once more. It happening as I told abruptly... For this I went to near service center( K h t motors), told the problem, they took a test drive but didn't felt what I'm facing... now it's a big problem and as I'm new to autoparts, I don't have that much technical knowledge about the car. So the technicians told me everything is fine... Now I'm driving my new with fear ... don'i know what to do ... So posted here if any technical guidance comes...


    Thankss in advance

    rahul about the FM transmitter, i think noting can be done. For Bluetooth mic you can replace with one avilable in market( i mean simillar one) with better quality. i have one GPS+blutooth device which had the same issues. I replaced the mic(mobile repair shop guys did it) and its super clear nw. For better reception you can adjust the position slightly and see the result.unfortunately in your case as its mirror mount not much adjustment can be done.
