    So the journey with this beautiful Fist has ended as I have sold my prized possesion to an equally passionate Fiat lover.
    Tried hard to stick with Fiat only and thoroughly test drove all current offerings from Fiat. End of the day I was surprised that even after so many years, Fiat dont have anything new that can make even existing Fiat customer to stick with it. All Fiat added is just new bells and whistles to existing Punto and Linea, and nothing to engines or even worth having features.
    That was quite frustrating and heart breaking too as I still dont want to break away from Fiat, but then I also wanted to upgrade, which Fiat was not giving me at all.

    Anyways, time moves on and so we. With lots of regrets, this beautiful story ends with this final picture of the new owner taking her away :-( and yes it broke my heart each time I saw this pic.

    @sunswape Yes bro life move's on and we learn to move on. Glad that you had an enjoyable time with your possession. Yes Fiat lacks an upgrade for anybody wanting to move from a T-Jet to something new. Maybe next year we will have some affordable Jeep's.

    Sad to see you let go of the beauty which brought so much life into your life. But good to know that you enjoyed every bit of moment with her. I had similar feeling when I parted my Fiesta.

    So what have you moved on to? Is it a Maruti, Hyundai or Honda??

    Fiat should introduce some new products soon. I will surely return to Fiat if some new comes from them, be it even a all new Punto

    Yes, Its completely sad for me too. Believe me, not feeling good selling this Fiat, as I was so deeply bonded to it.
    Moved to Ford Ecosport, as the closest car which came closest to Fiat was this only. Rest, never even looked any Maruti, Hyundai and Honda :) reason we all know.

    Lets see how well Ecosport pays back. Punto set quite high standards already.

    Fantastic choice. Ecosport is a good handler. I have driven it but not extensively, only in city roads. The rear mounted spare tyre gave me some nerves in B2B traffic and during parking. Rest it was a breeze.

    Yeah it came closest to braking and handling. Though steering is a let down, hoping to get used to it.

    Congratulations for the EcoSport @sunswape !
    Parting is way more difficult when you have invested so much on the ride.
    Anyways, your headturner will now grace someone else garage :)
