    As I earlier mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I brought home Punto on Last Friday. The whole experience with the dealership was delightful so far.The sales executive @ Oberoi cars, sec-1, Noida was very courteous and informative. Every query was answered and I was kept updated about the car from the time of booking till delivery. I seriously hope it continues in the same way.

    Here are some of the pics of lovely Punto..

    Guys,
    Is there some running period for engine for which I should not go beyond certain speed and rpms?

    If there is some existing threads please point me in that direction.

    <BTW> I am just loving (my Punto mjd E+) it!

    As such there is no running in period.

    Neither have FIAT spelled out how to run these cars in.

    In my opinion :
    -follow the idling religiously(refer to ''Start stop , idling'' thread)
    -drive normally, BUT , no sudden acceleration bursts or redlining the engine
    - do not drive at constant rpm's for extended periods, keep varying
    - driving the engine at low rpm's only won't do much good. Gradually show the engine high rpm's. Till 3k rpm is a no issue. Once there, back off, just let the engine feel 3k once a while. But the key word is 'gradual'. Don't stomp on the accelerator.
    -avoid hard braking for atleast first 500km's. Excluding emergency stops ofcourse.

    An oil &oil filter change at 1000km or so is always a good idea.

    Gurjinder.
    Edit-Estimates vary on how long we should drive sanely. They vary between 3000-5000km's. But something in between would be fine.
