    sungoa2010 : When Your car gets serviced ?? We all are waiting for your Next Update !!
  2. sungoa2010


    My 3rd free service is on 8th. Will update after that. There are few issues to be addressed.
    Need to check the suspension I carpet feeling is missing now days. Feel like a decrease the punch. This I have noticed after the engine mount incident.
    Otherthan that there is nothing much to complain. Will try to be present there while changing oils and coolant.

    I will advice you to do the following : Keep a diary or use google doc and keep a record of fuel filled with odo reading and this will help you to calculate your average FE that you got. That will give the actual FE that you got and it is a good measure of the health of your car. Also you will be able to figure out, in case of some drastic change in FE, where it has started.

    I have given my car for servicing today(3rd). ODO -11550 kms

    Please advice whether spark plug need to be replaced at 3rd service? I couldn't find it from the manual.

    Also manual mentioned to do Engine management scan. Service adviser told that he will do if any requirement is there. Should I insist him to do the scan since it may
    find errors whose effects are not yet appeared?

    All filters and all fluids will be replacing.

    Will get the vehicle in the evening and will update the same.

    Sun, as I told you may need to seek clarification on these items. I suggest you to shoot a mail to Fiat Customer care and there is no harm in waiting for their reply. :)

    Thanks Ramesh. I need to know whether the email id has changed. Does the old email id still working. I will write a mail to CC to some important officials.
    I hope this will help them to understand the wrong practices happening at some of the dealerships

    Today morning first time in last 2 years my Punto missed the start when I turned on the ignition. After that it was normal. And I checked many times. There was no problem.:D
