@krsh77

Sorry to hear that you sold off the car but I guess I can understand how you feel to a certain extent. No thoughts of getting a mjd ?

Hey, I am flying out of India next week. So no cars for now... I am dreaming about owning a Fortuner once I am back to India in a couple of years . Hope the dream comes true...

Yes Sir, I second that...In 2010 I have driven the Palio only for a very few kilometers. I have been using a Zen for 3 months and now Alto for one month. You know what? I am saving an extra 3k every month. I am not blaming FIAT because I absolutely love FIAT machines, however diesel is not my cup of tea. I guess that a petrol FIAT will not give much trouble as a diesel FIAT.

1.9 D is front heavy - which causes the suspension to wear faster than its petrol siblings. Also the vibrations in the diesel motor are so strong - it makes the bolts come off
