    I would be taking the delivery of the car on Wednesday.
    I have already done the PDI in detail and was satisfied, however i did not get to drive the car.
    Are there any known issues with Punto that i need to check for before taking the delivery except for the paperwork?
  2. Congrats Pronoy.Welcome to the family.
    You should check for the glove-box,it remains misaligned in almost all new cars,check for rust,and ask the the dealer to tighten the link rod;)

    It seems that the link rod is a problem with all the puntos, I even read a ownership review by a member on teambhp i guess, who had to drag the car down to the dealership for the same problem.

    As mentioned i have already done the PDI, checked for Rust, found none, surprisingly, the Glovebox was alright, although a little tight, but no misalignment as such.

    thanks Srini

    Have taken the delivery of the vehicle and already driven around 50 Kms, the Mileage on the MID scared me. it was 14.9 when i got the car, in the 50 Kms of city driving the average dropped to 14.1,

    Instantaneous mileage was scarier.

    The car feels worked up as of now, im guessing it will ease up as i drive it around.

    Instantaneous mileage for 50kms is too lesss..it will vary rapidly..

    Not to worry...

    On an average drive of 500 kms u will get around 14 in city......with AC
