    My Punto has given me 1.5 years of trouble free service. Yes, the service standards are not great but I can say that for quite a few other brands as well. Regarding spares, that varies with the service centers and so you should probably decide to buy the car or not based on the dealers and service centers in the area.

    deenu, do you think that for a car of a brand which is not good at all, have a constant fan base and even have a separate forum created for that brand?

    Again, Swift is no comparison to Punto's ride and handling. If you like Punto, just go for it. There won't be any regrets. That's one marvelous piece of machine.
    Make a bold decision.

    The car is good,but the service is bad,just like bride being good and inlaw being bad!
    If you like the bride,go ahead and forget the inlaw(which is very cruel and ruthless!)
    About spares,yes,it's true,majority are not readily available,it would just be like getting married to a bride,without a dowry!
    So,do you really care about anything else,if the bride is good??
    Go,ahead,the car is great,Maruthi service is also very bad(I had owned 2 earlier)

    I will make only few statement.
    " Punto owner who is behind the steering is not a less satisfied man/women than onesitingg in the drivers seat of a BMW" as far as the driving dynamics isconcernedd"

    " Punto cannot be the winner as far best service and bad service concernedned" It comes well above average, though not best, since there are few horrible services available which are non fiat.

    " Punto will save the occupant than any other hatch or even some higher class in case of a accident since it is built like tank"

    Deenu, I would say If you like Punto then go for it, Its a Bold machine which will make you more bolder.....
    Rather than repenting when the Grande Punto zooms on the highways and curves......
    Just open the doors of the Grande Punto and you will feel that the car is build like tank, which has a rolling bars on the roof and a cage build with high tension sheets, which is only available in high class cars.....
    I have a Grande Jan '10 model 1.2 never has any issue only went for the service 4 times routine by Fiat,,,,,(Yeah the arts is little hectic when you visit the service with the Tata guys taking care of the Italian Machio....., But not to worry Fiat will soon have its own service and sales bay...
    Do let us know your decision, would be great to welcome you to the Club....

    Are these people Fiat car owners? If yes, trust them.. if no, ask for facts from Fiat car owners.

    Best approach would be to check the forums for each of your shortlisted car especially the long term reviews from users. You yourself would know what to go for. I do not own nor driven swift vdi, it would not be ethical for me to bash the car, the same be applied to Punto.. it deserves its fair chance not word of mouth from non-owners.

    He he, same old story! trust me, i booked wagon R while i had eyes on Punto... everytime after that i saw punto on road, my heart used to cry. The happiest day was when i cancelled Wagon R booking.

    Now, 1.5 years of my punto 90 hp, hassle free all the way.
