Congrats Raju on a 25k+ ownership!
So how does the car feels now in terms of performance and drivability?
Yes after a 5k kms, you can try changing the tyres to a good one like Yokos or Bridgestone Turanza.
For Speedo issue as other member said can be repaired from local one who are aware of FIAT cars!
BTW, are you a member of Palio Users Group? If not join in to share your ownership and get along with other Palio members from your area and others too.
Yes, do post some pics of ur car to give some justice to this thread!

I have had similar experiences with Marutis - both the Swift and Ritz. You push the car beyond the 5K mark and you get a burning smell.
Not really an issue I think.

Sounds like you are enjoying your Fiat 1.6. It is a fun little pocket rocket that makes up for annoying little mechanical issues with its perky performance.
The "icing" of the AC as you describe it: There is supposed to be a thermostat type of device on the cooling coils that prevents icing. Have it changed and that should solve your problem. I had this exact issue with my GTX.
Shuddering/vibration under hard braking. This is a simple case of rotor warpage that proves you have indeed been enjoying your car. Don't bother having it "checked" or asking a service advisor/mechanic for their opinion. Simply have the front rotors removed, turned down on a lathe and re-installed.
The burning smell in the cabin at high speed should not be there. Are you riding the clutch? Are you doing rapid high speed stops and burning the brake pads? Are you driving very aggressively?
I regularly do over 5500 rpm with no burning smell.
If there is an issue with your speedo cluster, try and have *** replace the entire unit and not just do a repair. As far as I know, there are no serviceable parts on that unit. Make sure that they dont just delay doing the repair correctly until the car is out of warranty.
