On 24th December 2014, I finally took the delivery of my car "Fiat Punto Evo 90hp, Magnesio Grey". For Accessories, I got the Chrome Silencer Extension and the Door Sill. Though, I personally didn't liked the Door Sill. It was about 7:30pm when I drove out my car from the Showroom (Fiat Caffe, Bangalore). Felt exited as well as nervous taking this beauty home for the first time. Next day early morning took it to the Vinayak Temple at AECS Layout, Bangalore for the Puja. The same evening took the car on the NH4 for a stretched ride. Again, next day took the car for another ride to NH4. And Finally on Sunday, I took my ride to Nandi Hills for a day Picnic, with my family. The drive to the Nandi Hills was great, and the car climbed the Hill without breaking any sweat. Due to my mistake I stalled the car negotiating a very very steep slop ( well above 20 degree slope ) inside the Fort at Nandi Hill. I was very cautious not to rev the engine very hard ( well, I hardly revved ) when I Stopped the car at the Steep Slope and tried launching without using any gas. Seems I was going too gentle with the clutch. I have been driving a petrol car and on hills I use to ride the clutch while starting off. But with diesel I found the behavior not same in the sense that during the transition of Clutch and Accelerator, the rpm refuse to rise and stalls. Maybe, I am not doing the right thing and was over cautious. People driving diesel on the Ghats can give me some tips for hill start. For info I ran AC 100%. Except for the stalling incident, the trip was fabulous and the downhill was executed rarely using the brake. The gears did a fantastic job. The trip was about 150km for me and the Average consumption I got was 16.1 kmpl. Well, while coming back on the Bangalore-Hyd highway, I couldn't resist and ran the 5th Gear around 2500 rpm occasionally reaching 100-110 kph. I held back my temptation at that for now, can't claim I can hold back next time. So far I have done 505 kms in 3 days. Well I wouldn't mention the Pros and my Liking as there has been a lot of them mentioned by others. So, I'll point out some the negatives I have found. The Headlight Stalk sometimes accidentally rotates to OFF, while using the temporarily Hi Beam. The Climate Control always sets the circulation mode to AUTO if I switch the AC to OFF and then ON. Kind of annoying if I the AUTO happens to suck in Air instead of Circulating Inside in peak Traffic. The plastic edge at the bottom Right of the dashboard has very sharp edge. The rubber strips at the Doors-Windows, don't have great fit and finish at the ends. (non serious point) In my Son's opinion the Alloys looks like Baby Bottle ( still figuring out how ). Below are my finding of the car's behavior: In B2B Traffic the car pulls without using the accelerator. Even while climbing the Ramp from my Basement parking I hardly have to press the Accelerator to climb up the Ramp in 1st Gear. Haven't tried doing that with no Accelerator Input. Will perfect the Hill Climb Start before trying that. Any Suggestion on the best technique to do Hill Climb Start with Diesel Car? In the City/Plain Driving here is what I found. Gear 1: good for getting the car moving and crawling up steep slopes/Ramp. Also good to run over the multiple pipes speed breakers. Gear 2: effective @1k-2k+ rpm and good for going over most of the speed breakers except the Made in India Suspension breakers. For that there is Gear 1. Gear 3: effective @1.5k-2k+ rpm Gear 4: effective @1.5k-2k+ rpm Gear 5: effective @1.5k-2k+ rpm The one thing I noticed is that at any gear except gear 1 & 2, below 1.5k rpm is no fun and weak. But if I maintain 1.5k+ rpm for gear 3,4,5 the car respond very well, rather exceptionally well and feel like a mini rocket. On hills the required min RPM increased by about 500. So, in any gear I had to maintain 2000rpm to be in command of the power. Though 2nd Gear can survive with 1.5k+rpm. I am still trying to communicate with the car and understand its envelope. On the funnier side, I haven't washed my car yet. Any advice on the Shampoo and technique, I stay near Whitefield Bangalore and the water is really hard. I shall post more pics and reports as I continue my journey with my Mini Rocket.
