My First Car - Punto 1.2 Emotion

Discussion in 'Punto 1.2 Fire' started by rahulvfx, Feb 16, 2012.

  1. There is a serious issue with Fiat 1.2 engine which I came across few months back.

    After Fiat has done the free upgrade of car AC, the exhaust of car has started creating a DUB-DUB sort of noise even when the car is in standing position. So how do you verify it -
    Start the car and drive for few mins with AC on. Stop the car and go back at exhaust. Just sit down and listen to exhaust while engine is on with AC running. I asked about this behavior to Fiat services but they were unable to provide any proper answer. I was communicated by service engineers that this problem has been rectified in 2012 edition of Punto. I have escalated the matter to higher authorities and waiting for a reply.

    Please note that this problem is not specific to one car. We checked nearly 4 cars with AC upgraded and found the same issue.

    I bought a really good FM transmitter once and used it for a while but strangely it always created lots of noise , I got irritated and gave it to my fried who drives a Honda City.
    He is using it and I was surprised that there has been no issues reported from him..

    I personally checked all settings and audio quality everything was fabulous but only in my car it had major issues..
    It's been 1 yr since I gave it to him and he's pretty happy even today..

    My advice, dont invest in these things unless you have time to physically check everything out.
    Also Fiat's Transmitters are not on par with other cars so you might have disturbance .. I'm not happy with the antenna either..

    2) The Mats, Is it a perfect fit for Punto ? And do u remember how much you paid for it?
    3) I liked the Door Sill Light Plates, and the pressure Nob with Fiat thing. Did you get it from Local market?

    Hi pra.agar,
    That time this decals was available from fiat itself, as far as I remember it was around 2k.
    Those matts are available in j c road & it comes as universal size, so you can fit accordingly. I didn't had any problem, only the middle pit at the rear is exposed, I don't find any suitable matt for that that region.. costed +-700
    Door sill again from j c road...
    Pressure nob - Got it from UK ...
