    Happy Birthday to my Ride... :)

    It's a 3rd year with my Ride with 67K kms on ODO. Feeling awesome.

    Overall maintenance done is all routine schedule services till 60,000 kms.
    Replaced:
    1. Front break pads @36000 kms. (Will be replacing by 70,000 kms)
    2. Clutch & pressure plate plate @40000 kms
    3. Right camber bolt twice approx @30000 kms & 60000 kms. due to alignment issues.
    4. Replaced first set of JK tyres @ 45000 kms.
    5. Replaced all spark plugs @ 50000 kms. (Advisable to be replaced @35/40k kms)
    6. Replaced battery @64000 kms.
    7. Replaced Boot shocks @ 66000 kms.

    Apart from the above maintenance there are no such issues observed in these 3 years of ownership. My ride is being serviced regularly at Pandit bavadhan service center. On obvious reason of casual meets ;)

    Longest one day trips done in these 3 years
    1. Pune - Belgaum
    2. Pune - Mahabaleshware
    3. Pune - Solapur (twice)

    No regrets to having or choosing 1.2L Petrol hatch for my daily commutes as well as long drives.

    Birthday gift to my ride.... Fiat 500 trumpet horn.

    I had some reservation on 1.2 engine, but after weekend drive of 1.2 of @Puntom, I quite liked it. Driven some 25-30KMs or so and it was driving so nicely.
