    1. Don't engage the handbrake; instead slot the first gear if your Punto faces upward/level ground; reverse gear, if facing downward slope

    2. Put a wooden wedge or stone at both the sides of a wheel

    3. Steer to the extreme right or left

    4. Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery

    5. Keep the tyre pressure at 42 psi

    If possible fill Nitrogen instead of Air. I filled 35 PSI Nitrogen in my car and was standing stationary for 8 months. When I checked the pressure after 8 months, it was at 20. :)

    On a slope, if the steering is straight forward, the car might roll away in neutral or slippage of gears. If it is steered to the extreme right or left, the car will turn, dash against the curb and stop instead of rolling away.

    Forgot to mention: keep both the windscreen wipers out of contact with the glass, i.e., perpendicular to the windscreen.

    Guys my punto is nearing 25k kms and 1year 4months old and i am planning to get it serviced this time but slight confusion as i had got the first service done at 15k kms is it the second service or third service now, when i tried to book the call the lady said that it should be third service and not second service. Service interval is 15,30,45,60 or 5,15,25..? please advise..
