Default Re: Fiat Punto 90 HP Sports: My Companion. Now, 80000 kms completed!

Update:
Now the Car has done 1.4 L kms.
Major Trips done in last two years.
1> Leh Ladak Trip In 2015 June First week 7100 kms.
2> MP trip just after Ladak.
3> Uttarakhand Trip in Sept 2016, 6.5 k kms
4> And many Goa trips.

About Service and Tyre changes
Service :
Nothing major here,
1>Just after Ladak Trip (Odo was 93xxx) had to change the Steering ball joint as they got jammed and while removing got damaged Repair cost some 5k including labor.
There was no issue with steering but was not able to do alignment adjustment so had to replace.
2>Changed the Front suspension strut mountings at the same time. 4.5 K including labor.
3> Changed Clutch plate and c mount around 1.02L kms 10k including labor.
4> Changed tyres just after ladak trip the set almost lasted for 50k kms.
5> Changed Lower arm during clutch plate change 4k including labor there was some discount on parts and labor of 10%.
6> Changed battery around 97k kms in Aug 2015 replaced with Amron 5k cost, 55 Din.
7> At around 1.35 kms serviced alternator cost was 5k
8> Change rear suspension struts at 1.35 L kms
9> For my kind of driving front brake pads last around 30/31k kms cost of replacement is around 4k including labor. The rear drum liners are stock.
10> Did EGR and manifold cleaning around 1.02 L kms.

During the 1.2 L service car is fitted with new Timing chain kit which has life of about 90k kms, not opted to change other belts like Power steering and alternator. As they seems to be fine.

Rest of the car is working absolutely fine. AC is as good as new, so as the engine, no rattles and regular servicing.

Recently got my cars door painted as it started signs of rusting it was present since 2015 and had mailed FIAT already about the issue but didnt had time to give car for 10 days so in march 2017 Asked FIAT to do the re painting JOB, and they covered all the expenses under warranty.
I dont have any issues with the service. regular parts are available at service centers. Car is bullet proof. have driven in worst terrain of Ladak. Suspensions started showing age, has become softer, one can feel after driving other Punto. but still no noises, the current tyre set is looking good for more 10k kms.
