    HI Everybody,

    I am planning to buy Punto 1.3MJD. I test drove Polo TDI, Figo diesel and Punto 1.3MJD. It really love the driveablity of punto. It is an amazing car.

    I have one concern and need suggestions. My friend had palio and he had faced lots of issues with servicing and spare parts. Does users of punto still facing A.S.S. issues.

    Rajesh, which city are you from?

    On parts issue, be sure you will be in better position than VW and Ford, both on affordability and cost.
    Now a days, there is no spare parts issues. Servicing is debatable topic, some are pretty happy, some are satisfied and some are dis-satisfied.

    No Horror Stories .. Owning Punto is like owning World class Car at price of Maruti's....Very promising in terms of A.S.S Costs. There might be some problems ..All i can say Negligable .
    A.S.S is totally depending on Dealers. Palio era is gone ...I Advice to Go ahead with Punto Dyn...

    Thanks every one for quick replies.

    Ravi, I stay in NOIDA .. But I will be travelling to Himachal quite often.

    I will be booking dynamic variant of Punto1.3 as Emotions is out of budget. I want to upgrade 165 / 80 R14 tyres of Punto Dynamic. I asked dealer if I can upgrade tyres and dealer is saying the upgrading tyres will lapse the warranty. I am not sure it is correct or not.

    Theoretically yes, but everybody does it.
    You can easily upgrade to 185/70, on 14" rim.

    Thanks Ravi,

    Also Fiat Dealer is saying .. There is no need of gear lock in Punto and infact no possibility to add gear lock. I live in Noida(NCR) which is highly prone for crimes. what you guys suggest is it safe to have Punto without gear lock ?
