    @abhionline .Congrats mate for being a part of this unique online forum where all of us are bonded together due to out love for all things Italian.

    You will not find any other forum unlike this one where inspite of all our differences we agree on one point i'e Fiats are one of the best when build quality and driving dynamics are concerned.

    And you missed Ford Fiesta as well which is on par with Fiats as far as ride and handling is the criteria.

    Thanks mate.... I know the fiesta handles good, but the price is a bit over 10L.. In that case we can't forget Skoda Rapid also.... @nibedk

    Honestly I never ever calculated the FE on this car. It was probably not good nor bad either before this procedure. But looks like there was this pickup issue with this one which was not the case with other Sienas. I had replaced the valves on this engine and got the timing belt adjusted.

    Considering its mediocre power-output. It was always considered underpowered and sluggish (rather painful) for the city drives. But it was fun on the highways and a turbo was much needed on this esp. to pull this thing when fully loaded. You do of-course need to work the gears a lot esp. if it loses steam after sudden braking.

    This same thing is there on our Indian 1.7s too.
