sure u love ur car, yet u are also putting forth its flaws as well.good posts
i do love to last particle of it. its a nice one with a feel for sure!!
well with my previous car indica vista , punto's turning radius is bit longer ,though the steering is much lighter and comfortable.
but i dont have much of issue with that as i am used to drive big cars like ford ranger and dakota.
i cannot compare it with other cars in puntos segment as i have little idea about it.
but of course its apparent punto can never beat wagon r , beats and such urban sibilings in city u turns.
what i learnt is punto is designed to accommodate wider range of rubber , so that it doesn't scrape while turning- typically considering the sport interests.
a.s.s part , i can write an essay .
the service centre guys are much considerate and polite over my hometown "kvr dream vehicles,kannur"
and they take care of the car like a baby with 2 or 3 guys always engaged usually. they have differnt desk with computers for fiat in tata s.s.
so it feels little bit of relief to note all that.
but again fiat have issues with parts/spares availability and that is something wierd and common with european and american cars imho. i haven't got any response yet for my seat replacement,even after putting up some word in ceo corner in fiat website
mileage part is not clear to me yet as its still running in period . i have noticed wide variations , from 14 to 21kmpl (city and hwy mixed) hope it will get better later
i am convinced that fe is far better than my previous car vista which used to stick to 13-15 initially.
imho credit goes to vgt and turbo lag to an extend so most of the time car runs without the turbo in and around 50 -70kmph drinking less fuel.
i20 is also a good choice if you are not brand conscious or dont have a serious driver in you.
i20 is definitly a good package but i dont know about its mileage whether it is hyped or true imho 23 sounds too much in such a heavy car with small engines) . if it is true then kudos to hyundai.
fiat sales are day by are getting extinct and it is matter of alert for existing owners but iam not much worried if my car doesn't give any troubles(hope it doesnt)
(imho fiat is planning some drastic steps for sales by 2011 or maybe something else}
i am pretty much satisfied with its ride quality,looks,steering feels, good nvh and well built. remaining things and creature comfort i am least bothered as i scarcely use them (they are all useless literally at least to me-as i dont even use those steering controls.)
well the liking towards the car might have left you feel i am biased or exaggerated well i put whatever i felt if i feel bad it would definitly reflect here.(so far it did not)
