    Time for a little update, 14000 kms covered and i still find the car amusing .Everytime there is a open stretch, the way abarth picks up speed it still gives me those goosebumps! mileage has been a steady 12 kmpl on highways not that im complaining.

    The only negative is that on highway speeds (120 kmph), it feels rather bumpy on uneven patches ! This is uncomfortable.

    Recently a coconut fell on the roof and the roof caved in almost 30 cms in diameter.This almost gave me a heart attack! not withstanding the sight gave it for painting.These buffoons have literally screwed my car! paint feels rough and even the dent was not removed properly.Will make them feel hell during my first service!

    @nitninja I can feel the pain and yes as we have discussed several times in the forum Fiat service center's really have a long way to go.

    yes sir but ruining a 4 month old car just brings tears from my eyes! how careless these people can be ! They have chipped off some paint the rear spoiler too.Im just refraining myself from dropping a mail because till date they have been courteous to me.This will be the last chance im giving them, its either do or die for them.On the same note my vento went for accidental repairs, dent removal and painting was done.Though the cost was too much, paint matching and quality of workmanship was just top notch.It is impossible to find where the car had been repainted!

    That's rather sad to hear @nitninja & yes that is something which comes as a complimentary by owning a Fiat. They make fabulous cars but the care given towards them is nothing to write about. Even I too had something similar experience with paint job done due to rusting issue. It was incomplete job & to add to it the paint was sprayed unevenly across all over!! I totally lost my temper & made them to repaint again. They were very reluctant to do it, stating that it will be a paid job if they repaint again. I said fine, if you are so reluctant I know whom to contact & raise an issue. By this way of blackmailing them finally they agreed upon to do the job & car was back in normal looks. Well I don't know how the things are at your place but at Vecto motors in B'lore all paint job is carried over by TATA (Prerana motors). I guess that's the reason for pathetic job!! :banghead:

    Recently in a similar case, the mechanics over sprayed my car and you can see the same in the roof. I have given up unfortunately and just accept it as it is.

    Always... Always get your paints done by specialist painters & not service centre.

    Case in point RS Motors is different because, they were a specialist garage first With their own set of painters & denters and became Service centre later.
