    Hello All,

    I've Punto 90HP 2012 model. During idling the vibration can be felt from the engine in the cabin, door and most importantly on steering.. I've driven 2011 Punto 90HP (demo car) and there was no vibration whatsoever felt in the steering in the idling. It was refined as a Petrol car and engine nosue could be hardly heard incabin with the A/C on. I also drove New swift and Chevrolet Beat, if it was refined.

    Is it a normal behavior with Punto or do I need to check with the A.S.S for any issue with engine mounts?

    My steering too has a very mild vibration when idle. I can feel the vibration both at my hands and right foot when I close to 2500 rpms.

    Can't be sure on the internet.

    Though vibes to a certain extent are expected and normal, even in our modern diesels. They are diesels after all. :)

    This is quite normal. Actually as soon as you start building up kms above 10000 this reduces dramatically. Also hot engine wont vibrate as much as cold started engine.

    Does that mean the car is still in run in period? mine has clocked just 9.6k.
  6. Nothing to do with run in period, in simple words the engine performs at its best after the 2nd service.

    Its already over. I am getting less F.E and less performance post second service.

    Get your C Mountings also checked whenever you are at TASC. It's beneath the Stone Guard I guess.

    I think the Multijet feels free after a few hundred km's only. I was at 3500 rpm with only 500km on the odometer.

    The key is the feel - you must feel how the new engine is responding.
