    True Gurjinder bhai,

    The first thing that strikes is 195 R15 legs. I guess Punto is the only hatch (in the segment) which gives this wide tyres.

    Initial reaction of most of the people is "Fiat ka chhota gaadi 7 lac me?" ("7 lacs for a small fiat car?"). But, when they start noticing the features and comparing it with Swift, Polo etc they start believing it as VFM.

    I dont think it's their fault. It's Fiat to blame. Even after 2 years of its launch, people still doesn't know its features. Probably they have never considered Fiat as the option and never went to Fiat showroom.

    Toruk, Congrats for your Car. GP in BNW is a killer on road especially when you see it approaching from front. A poor fathers intelligent daughter is far superior than a rich fathers boring daughter and your choice will prove it. In my Punto the auto lock works(2010model).

    Hi guys,

    Back from a 10 days of peaceful vacation to my native place in kutch (Gujarat). I missed Pierina a lot, which was lying idle at Mumbai.

    Yesterday, when I started her, I hear hisssing sound whenever AC is turned on. I did some R&D with various AC options and found out it comes only when compressor is turned on. Sound goes as soon as compressor is off. The sound is still there and I am worried. Is something leaking from somewhere? Is it a famous O-ring issue? Does this happen when car is idle for more than a week?

    I am not sure about AC performance. Yesterday afternoon was very hot and humid in mumbai and it took a good time to cool down.

    Please reply.

    @Piyush- Wow, the car looks awesome with those Abarth graphics. If FIAT sees these photos, I bet they might consider providing these stickers as OEM accessory. :)
