    Aviral, i am too experiencing the same issue. Even though I idle the turbo for 1 min before starting or shutdown. This is not normal behaviour In my opinion. My dad's Mahindra used to do this. I strongly feel this is due to some issue with engine mount. Yes, the engine does vibrate slightly when it falls off but it should not be too pronounced.

    I tested the same thing on a friend's ddis engine and the vibration was really low on shutting down the engine. I am supposed to take my car for first service in couple of weeks, will update you on the resolution provided by ASC.

    Do not worry about it bro, you have warranty and you have EW too (correct?) so just enjoy the car. Meanwhile if and as you confirm it is more pronouced, ask them FASC people to report the same to Fiat and provide a resolution. At worst your engine will have another brand new set of mounts (shoes). Don't worry about it man. Just ensure that a similar shudder? is not there in other MJDs; just to be sure about your perceived problem.

    This diesel mount thing is a rumour most probably fuelled by people like you who are genuinely surprised and worried about the slight shudder that's there at shut-down, perhaps folks who are coming from petrols? Who knows? Until there's evidence of it being anything more than 'aisa hi hai'/'like that only': don't worry even slightly. We don't on our 75 hp Punto, and it's running just fine! Good to see the FASS/dealer providing you with the requisite help and advice.

    So when are you driving to 'Kanyakumari'?;)

    cheers

    @Aviral singh , @prabhjot : The engine mount may or may not be cause. Slight shudder is expected, the worry starts when the whole car shudders when engine is killed. The shudder that i am experiencing transmits through whole body. I will check it out in other models on my visit to SC. But i must admit that the so called mount issue also has a big hand in shaping my perception :It may or may not be an issue at all, fingers crossed.

    @Aviral singh - IMHO the shudder while switching off is quite normal if it is a diesel. Both my Crdi and Innova shudder though it is more prominent in innova being a bigger engine. So, No Worries and enjoy driving the beauty.

    @Aviral singh you should try my non-turbo indica...it belly dances when switching off....and still it has driven 1.5 lakh km like this....I'd say its pretty normal for a diesel engine...
