    Dear All,

    I am planning a trip from Mumbai to Bhuj(Gujarat) which is my native place and it is approximately 950 Kms one way. Since my car is new and have just done 6k kms, inshallah i should not have any problems with my car.

    I am not sure if i should be going on with the trip as there are no service center nearby to my native place.

    I would request all forum members to give out suggestion on the same.

    regards,
    Irfan

    Irfan dont worry go ahead and visit your native in your car.

    Just check all lubricants level and if possible change the engine oil before the trip as it would help to keep your engine in good health.

    Many TFI members did Mumbai to Bhuj trip in their FIATs without any problem.

    Irfan,

    As your car has done 6K KM means you might have done the 5K km service check up recently.

    If that is done then no worry of anything. Go & press the accelerator......:redcar

    So after a year's delay, finally made a trip to Kutch with loved punto... Covered 930 km in 14.5 hours woth multiple break and kept my car in the range of 100-120 km per hour.

    The car as usual is a treat to drive on highways but got a minor scarce when something bump into the tyres making abnormal noise from front left wheel. Checked and found everything was ok and then continued my trip.

    Posting pics of speedometer after my trip.

    Need to mentioned the beautiful roads of Gujarat, they are also too good.
