    See the first pic below (belongs to Sujith1100's Punto). The ODO reading can be seen as "H 103Km".
    [attachment=1:ugt3go2z]ODO with H.jpg[/attachment:ugt3go2z]
    All FIAT cars come from the factory with an initial temporary ODO that shows this "H" that you see in the photo. The car can be driven upto 200Km with this H after which the ODO resets for one last time to zero and H disappears.
    Also, this H can be manually deleted as well by resetting the ODO manually.

    In the second pic here, there is no "H". The car has done 2800Km. This is the permanent ODO (does not show "H") and can't be reset.
    [attachment=0:ugt3go2z]Photo-0550.jpg[/attachment:ugt3go2z]

    Inference- If the dealer car shows "H 27km" on the ODO, you can be 103.7% sure that the car has never been driven more than 27Km (unless the ODO was disconnected).
    If the car just shows "27km", there is a possibility (not a certainty) that the car might have been driven for 200Km of initial temporary ODO + 27 more Kilometers.
    Sometimes, the dealership mechanics reset the ODO at the time of their dealership level PDI (as was done in my case), so it does not mean that "H" must be always present in the car. Its just that "H" is an insurance that the car is a virgin. :wink:

    I just talked to one person in my office having Emotion petrol Jun'10 model. He is telling there is some problem in the A/C in all the cars so FIAT is replacing some components free of cost. Any more details on that??? Though that gentleman didn't face any problem himself. :hit
