    Hi friends.
    M pennin my 1st ownership experience. Bought a Midnight Black Punto 1.3 MJT Active last december from Sanghi Brothers Fiat Authorised daler at Bhopal.
    was smitten by the looks of my black beauty.... even now every mornin it gives me a smile as I look at my ride.......

    have done almost 9000 kms till date of relatively troublefree driving....:)

    Have been loving almost every single kilometer that I jave been racking on.
    I am thankful punto has a super cool ac as my black ride gets unbearably hot many a times now since temperatures reaching 42 degrees here.

    I m also in love of the refinement of my car..... I had sat in a VW polo 1.2 tdi for a few hundred kms n it was a as if a tractor was pulling the car... punto is way way better then vw's n skoda's..... even new swift is a tad nosier....
    The dash may be not the highest in terms of fit n finish but boys isnt it stylish enough.....

    The short gearing is a boon in day to day city driving.... I stick in 3rd n crawl the whole city.... as simple as that....

    The ground clearance has proven a boon lik none in the upgraded punto. I feel the car lil less planted compared to pre 2012 models but it suits the overall picture better since u r less petrified of the mountanious speed bumps all over.

    The ride is a class apart.... n I mean really really cossetting... it deals with the worst of roads with sublime ease just glides over

    The city average consumptionb has been hovering around 16 kmpl almost always but ya m not the most frugal in driving now since I have got used to driving this beauty.
    Recently on a intercity trip to Indore I managed 24.5kmpl with ac on.... for 414 kms..... genusege.jpg 6a9ehaty.jpg


    The most important part.... had a very nice ASS experience till now from Fiat auhorised service station bhopal... right from workshop manager to the cleaner.... all have been at there best all 3 times I have been there. Twice for noise from front struts due to loose bolts... n once for schedules service.

    I plan to have a long trip next month... will post some pictures here... pu4e8e7a.jpg taseju4a.jpg dedygy3y.jpg

    hope all of you have a safe n happy motoring...
