a clue: it is a project to Make Punto cross 100hp mark genuinely with out piggybacks and paper figures drawn out of assumptions. Btw
Punto is 2 years 7 month old now running on 27000km on odo.Not much moved out of Garage.
Genuine expenditure as ownership was 5000 as part of consumables in oil change.Ha Fiat!.
Of course there were some damages,accidents,got hit,cow hit ,bike crash,scooter kiss ,you name it.Once an Idiot hit walking and broke his front tooth.yes there was blood spill on the bonnet with mild scratches,car was parked in mall parking space ,me and the security guard the witness.
Thankfully nothing intruded into the car yet.(proof of Tank like built quality I guess)
As a true car lover I am disappointed with the ownership.reasons
1.Unable to drive-There are no roads to drive this machine,but war zones animated by insane Indian fellow traffic
2.Shock absorbers pain-Roads are not roads but torture test tracks and cluster potholes.where I pay more than price of a litre of diesal per kilometer at toll booths .it hurts to see the treatment for my expensive shock absorber and alloys.
3.No Consistency-There is no consistency on expense,price of fuel is like political slip of tongue.(2 months back I was filling 12 litre of 500 bucks,this month I got 9 litre for same moni.shame)
4.Rattle by 20kkm prediction-It did dissapoint many of my close friends whome predicted that Punto will rattle by 20kkm,fiat A.S.service will stop operating and within 2 years i would wish never had bought it. (My those poor friends, I miss them now.)
5.Addiction-they say no addiction is good for health.
6.Worst part- My family thinks ,it is a family caaaar.
