Yes, you are right, FIAT should have. All I was pointing to is that it seems my problem got solved (at least for now - I am still keeping my fingers crossed) with a tire change. It's not that every Punto or Linea has this issue. I have 2 of my colleagues, who have FIATs. One has a new Linea T-Jet (8 months old, not the classic model, the new one) and other one is an Old Punto (3 months older than mine). They don't have this issue at all. So not sure if we can blame only the car or just the tires or both. I think with a little persuasion from my side, the problem would have resolved earlier than now. On top of this, I also want to point out that, I was not at all unhappy with my car though it had this problem. I guess all cars have issues, no car is perfect. With last 4 years of experience, other than the pulling problem, I have had a very satisfying experience with the car and with FIAT service center (Pandit Auto). On the other hand, I have driven so many cars (short trips), be it I20, Etios Liva, I10, Figo etc. and every time I drive these cars, I feel good about my decision of going for a Punto. My colleague, who has a new T-Jet, he made the decision to buy T-jet only after driving my Punto for a good 100 to 150 KMs while we were on a trip to Goa. Before that he was researching for 1.5 years to buy a sedan but couldn't make his mind whether it should be a Honda City or any other car from Hyundai/Maruti. FIAT was not even on his list. While we were on this trip to Goa, I drove my Punto from Pune till Nipani (on NH4) and then he asked for a short drive (I never give my car to anyone, not to even my wife or sis ). Once he was behind the wheel, there was no stopping for him in the entire trip. So from Nipani to Goa, sightseeing in Goa (from North Goa to South Goa and back many times) and then from Goa till back to Nipani, I didn't get to drive my Punto . He booked the new Linea the next month I drove his Linea particularly to check this problem, it has no such problem at all.
