A friend of mine owns both Ikon TDCi and Fusion TDCi and he comments that whereas the Ikon is bullet proof in terms of FE, the Fusion's tend to vary a lot depending on the conditions.
He says, the monthly average fuel consumption of the Ikon is consistent but the Fusion varies from time to time. Even the Figo seems to be in same state of tune. Looks like I need to research a bit more.
Concorde (Kochi) is adamant that they quoted the price for BS3 Punto in Dec 09 to me and the price rise is for the BS4 conversion.
Have you driven the new BS4 Punto? Or is it all a spin?

Why only Punto owners meet? We should plan an all BHPians meet soon.

Yea, my need for first hand dope from Punto Owners got the better off me...lets do full ON NCR BHP meet where we folks drive up to someplace on the NH8 (Neemrana et all). Just one request if you are looking to open a thread...keep the dates for next month, I look to be back by then.

I got a call from ABS motors yesterday, I thought of ignoring the call but i picked it up, It was their Customer relationship manager, he said he along with a technician wanted to come to my place for a general check up, I gave them my office address.
They were at place at the promised time. The technician did a general check up of the car while the CRM took a note of issues with the car. Now they have asked me to send the car to the service center on any weekday and they will get all the issues fixed on the same working day. My previous experience with them has been poor but now this new CRM says things have changed, so i have decided to give them a last try. This service center is slightly better then the other two Tata-Fiat Service centers in Gurgaon.
Fiat is really working hard to keep the customers satisfied. The biggest hurdle in this process is the sub-standard Tata service stations and their staff. Though Fiat makes great cars the ownership experience is not as good as Hyundai or Maruti.

At least to me, 365 days count a lot on a car rather than max 7 days in workshop and process.
