Binai, thanks for the regular updates.
Its kinda surprising to see the number of warranty replacements carried out on your car.

As for the other events such as accidents, and ORVMs breaking, i would say they are part and parcel of driving experiences in India. Its the same story pretty much everywhere.

Your long term report was really an eye opener. I feel really sorry for the number of times, people things and animals come and bang into your car and you have to get her repaired again and again for no fault of yours. Still I am considering a Punto active for my daily office commute and am really surprised to see how expensive it is to maintain a Punto. I currently own an Ikon and have hardly spent nearly as much as you have spent on your regular services in my last 6+ years of ownership.

I was seriously disappointed to see the mirror break after a person fell on it - are these parts so fragile?

A guy banged behind my car yesterday.
Whats with your Punto man? People falling over it, cats dashing against it?

Must have been a strong cat to break the grille. It lived to see the damage?

My first one year servicing is due. Already started my prayers.

OT: You seem to be driving a lot over a lot of bad roads. Ever wonder what would have happened if you were driving some other not so strongly built car.

Has the Toyota Innova also seen problems like rattling and and wear and tear due to bad roads as your Punto? If it is not then another brownie point to Toyota quality.
