She loves long journeys...why? Because she is made for it, by virtue of Rigid body and excellent suspensions helped by HVAC. Climatic Difference becomes unknown.Especially with her friends, New Punto(5k) and a Suzuki Alto-k10(3k)
Pic Shot at Wagmon, kerala.
1.15000 oil change; that is first true service brought about something of extra ordinary changes to her.engine has become True free revving diesel burner.
2.Rattle has started probably due to heavy abuse on Kerala roads.
3. She remains a slouch for initial 1st and 2nd gear only. (I can write a huge story on it-means it is worth,short first gear has always been helpful).
4.Adrenalin Rush in VFM
package- Buy punto 90 HP .
PS: no Offense to other fiat owners- punto90HP with VGT is Light Years Ahead of FGT Punto on many qualities and Subjectively much Ahead of Linea MJD though with same engine.
I cant stop thinking how incredible punto tjet can be..HUH lucky those guys..!!!
Only one Glitch This Punto keeps Haunting me (for which I am much Happier too) is that it is not suited for slow driving. 60-70kmph regular drive means end of the day you will have shoulder aches,and ankle pain (from my own experience)
Ultra Precise Steering wheel with great Feedback means one have to keep pushing and pulling steering spokes in case of slow pace ending up in aching arms.not for weak and faint heart. (I get my biceps workout while city driving)
Lack of thigh support -Ankle has to bear the weight of legs
Scariest part of driving punto is taking U-turn.
This car is not meant for U-turns.What else to say ..lol
Punto FGT is an excellent drive on Ghats and slopes but my Punto 90hp Drives Crazy either it gets too Fast or too slow means I had to Keep working with Gears (Again confirming not good for Slow driving)
Gears in Punto 1st (ready) ,2nd (steady),3rd (point), 4rth(and) 5th(shoot)
