    We can not easily overtake volve bus like ST bus. Yesterday i was crusing at 100KMPH on NH-4 (Satara - Pune) but it was very difficult to overtake one volve (Purple). Volve was overtaking many buses/trucks/cars from left-right-left. what a control :wow.

    On same route one Nissan Micra diesel was crusing at speed 110KMPH/120KMPH. I was discussing with my wife that Micra has poor highway manner, lack of ABS. poor braking. After 5 minutes we saw same Micra crashed from front. Fortunately no one gets injured. Micra is very well build but lack of ABS loose the confidence. Well done FIAT for excellent engineering behind Punto and Linea.

    If either Viaggio or DART is launched, multiair turbo will come along-with. They are monster of a car for the old tjet.
    Till then it's wishlist.

    Punto MJD, I am sure, you are yet to see a true Punter/Liner or PAL GTS on highway. Look for them, they are rare sight but man, if you get to see one, you will come to know the speed & balance of these cars:D.

    I think a car with a slight lapse on any basic (built, braking, control or stability) is as rubbish as other. No half measures, either a perfect car or rubbish. No matter how good the built is, control is equally important. Having said that, built can't be compromised. This is where FIAT wins the heart, the best of all worlds for drivers:dance

    Thats right! calculations have to be different while overtaking a volvo when compared to other buses.

    On a related note, when the city roads are full of hardly moving traffic, i look for a volvo, try to get behind it and start tailing it for sometime. it really works well.. volvos cut their way through the traffic easily and are pretty fast at that. small cars usually stay away from buses in stop n go traffic

    They are too good in cornering others.

  8. I guess my Amby with a reduced GC would be capable of such stuff :rolleyes: Just can't wait to get it back on the road.
