Buddy, with all due respect, have you felt that your posts reeks of fanboyism towards Punto & strong bias towards FIAT? Every individual loves his car but such strong unrealistic posts has been seen only in this thread. I appreciate the fact that you love our car so much, you treat her like your baby, but try to post some realistic comment about your baby too. If you feel i am wrong or offending in any way, I am sorry. Please ignore.
probably raj has some kind of grudge on me else he would have read complete post and replied thoughtfully.
as far as the way i am,i would always give out optimistic points in any car i drive. and definitely never overlook its flaws or negative sides.
there is no un-realism in the answers given by ladies behind . anybody can understand that they might have adjusted to maximum to accommodate in it.
raj said as if either i myself lied or those people behind were lying .
but what i have learnt is in a middle class family like mine , even in most difficult situations such answers "we are comfortable" is not unrealistic.
thankfully for them they were not troubled or in pain , but yes they were tightly seated with some improvisations .
i did not say five 6feet gentlemen got inside and appreciated .
its little bit intentional from my part to keep these posts humanly and emotional rather than strictly technical and complying to specs.
regarding fanboyism - there is nothing towards fiat and i dont have have fanboy kind attitude at all. this ,punto is definitely a good package until now and i appreciate it.
i do not consider it like a baby either. to me car is like freedom. freedom to travel , freedom to run away, freedom to chase,freedom to move on.
similar baby thingies came from my friends when i owned vista. but they haven't recovered from the shock yet when they learnt that i sold it and bought punto.
only one hatchback which comes equivalent to fiat cars face to face is Peugeot cars they are not in india yet. i would love to appreciate them too. tight built and good response definitly gives you better confidence.
else we have to pay 10 lac plus to see some light.
in india , if not fiat the quality cars starts from skoda only-i think so (yet to see how volkswagon is)!!
ps:i always say glass is half full rather than saying half empty.
