    My Punto Evo has this left pulling issue and has eaten into the left tyre. I had tried getting this fixed at Madhu, Bangalore 4 months back - had the same issue. Aadya smartly said their machine isnt working (later found out that all their alignment is done at Classic Motors Kalyan Nagar) Tried getting this done at Classic - spent about 4 hours fixing this at that shop - had to stand through multiple test drives by the alignment chap; and left with a left pull all the same.

    finally the put the tyres outside in (hated doing that) and they adjusted the steering centring - I know that the car still pulls and that it would eat into my tyre.

    Not sure what else to do to fix this.

    Hi all,

    I too have left pulling issue from day one of my purchase Punto evo dynamic. Ramkay Fiat mechanic are keeping it for more than 5 days for fixing it. Also, they are trying to convince me that it is defect of Fiat. Please let me know did anyone raised issue to Fiat .

    Why would they take 5 days for this? Are they saying that suspension or arms are bend?

    The steering is very responsive and you would get the feedback based on the road. If your car is aligned correctly and if there are no structural damages, you shouldn't have drastic pull. Slight pull would be seen on the road due to incline; at least in my experience

    Yes, till today my vehicle is in service center only. They haven't said anything about suspension or arm bend. I have done test drive along with mechanic on NH7 high way, vehicle move towards left as soon as hands removed from steering. Also, I have raised issue about it to Fiat india.

    I had left my car for 4 days for getting the left pull problem arrested at FASS, Pune. Fiat has a step by step procedure for sorting this problem which includes a lot of permutation and combination of things to be checked/tweaked including suspension. This takes time. I got it sorted after this.
