    Today i have completed my First Year of ownership With my dear Punto :D.

    Now odo reading is 13,301 Kms.

    And went for 2nd free service and total bill was 5382/- .

    Replaced Front Suspension damper and elastic pad for Both sides and claimed under warranty, usual 2nd free service and Wheel balancing.

    Regarding the Front Suspension damper and elastic pad replacement SA voluntarily replaced and told defect will occur in some of the cars.
    Reason to change is little Hard Steering feeling and While slow turning sound comes and started to notice the sound from last week.

    After the service by little bit of driving feels very smooth steering as new vehicle.

    And also solved some rattling issues.

    As it is time for Insurance renewal, this time i went with Royal sundaram as they are having cash less facility with Fiat ASS,RSA(TVS KIT) and were offering less premium with high IDV compared to all other companies.
    Insurance costed around 19K and IDV is 6.20 Lakhs and it is 0% depreciation policy.
    Earlier insurer was Bharathi Axa and Insurance claimed once so no claim bonus.

    And my total Cost for 1st year will be as below.
