    hello folks, how u guys doing,
    ever since i bought punto life became like marathon run, but now it seems to be stable,
    now i have shifted to mumbai, and my car is barely used once a week:banghead:, even if i wish to use, cant find the proper roads like my gujarat. it feels like slowly dying enthusiast. way towards i view the car have changed, i became more practical now.
    in between i did two more trips to rajkot ie trip no. 27 & 28, drove whole night, 8pm to 8 am, no issues so far even with stock halogens,
    and the half trip as now i shifted here, so wont count half trip. summing up to 28 trips so far.
    one thing, the baby got covered parking in mumbai.

    issues : car makes some squeaking noise from the left window, some sort of suspension mount is making bit noise, clutch feels bit more jerky (dont know whether i feel or it is ), and jerk is felt while i shift to reverse, all i think its general issue with many cars so no need to worry about, car feels bit lazy too, may be due to lack of shell fuel here, from front left side underbelly scraps on bumps, may be it would be mud flap. car pulls to left and steering is align abit to right.

    well i am still happy with my car, it just need some extra care and lookout. right now not in mood to fix any issue, feeling home sick,

    thanks

    vicky.

    thanks buddy,

    haha, right bro, i could have make the record of fasted 50 trips on tfi, but now the marathon has been stopped, but dont know when it will start again, thanks for the suggestion though, and once i will surely take her to delhi-punjab-amritsar, 2k kms flat one side,
    and regarding that suspension , there were some bolts in the connecting rod, which were loose, it was tightened at FASS rajkot only.
    thanks

    yes, thanks for your appreciation

    indeed, thanks for your kind words bro,

    ,
    well, those were taiwanese brand lamps, available locally at cheap rate, though fitted and removed as they were useless, lamps cost 500, wire for 400, switch and relay 300, installation 1100 bucks, though total waste of money.

    IMG_20150824_180753_mr1440432786363.jpg hello members,
    car clocked 31k kms,
    did mumbai-rajkot-mumbai again, total 30 trips so far,
    got serviced at pride fiat, front suspension elastic pad was replaced, though they charged 1565/- extra for it, doesn't it came in warranty, ?
    opted for wurth fully synthic engine oil, oil flushed and added additive too

    Thanks @Deepak,
    I mailed FCA officials and mangesh regarding this, and got a call from pride fiat to get back your refund,
    Well I doubted at that time only that it may come under warranty, asked sa the same, he said Saar isme warranty nahi hota, as its depending on usage..
    I think fiat officials should be well informed that what and how their dealers are treating to their customers..

    Regards,
    Vicky
