Thanks for the replies guys.
The car is as stock as it can get, save for the seat cover and some under body spraying of some stuff.

After a straight drive of 26 kms the car started well.
Seems I got a slow leak of current somewhere.
Need to check I guess.

Check if your boot light is turning off when the boot is closed. Could be an after effect of what they did to your boot lock. Maybe your car did not appreciate being touched at the rear

^^ Yeah. Did not check that till now. But then won't it drain the whole battery overnight? And car refuse to start?
Will check anyways.

Now a days the car is running super smooth. Might be that I am used to its NVH now. Need to drive a petrol car to be able to judge. Not regretting even once as to why I went for a Punto. FIAT got a happy customer in me.

The thud comes if one rear wheel goes over a bump or rut. The relative travel of the suspension is the cause for the noise. It happens with my Bossa Nova Active also. The culprit is the torsion beam rear suspension and the stiff preload design. You wont experience it if both the rear wheels go over speed breakers or a railways crossing. Moreover you wont have it at high speeds also as the setup is biased towards it. The best way to negate it is to slow down to crawling speeds. will have to live with it or wait till the torsion beam becomes a lilttle more flexible.Fiat - No pun intended.

Any ideas as to where problem might be there? I am planning to take it up with dealership once I go for sunfilm but if someone has already seen this problem I will love to hear from him.

Drum rolls please. A long awaited milestone finally reached. 1 year and 3 months it took. But was a happy journey.
Excuse the pic quality.

Hey congrats! Suddenly it's cloudy and breezy! Guess this is the reason!

So how is life with a Punto? My life with the JET is flying high! I am sure yours too as you too drive a MultiJET!

"Small niggling problem:
I wonder if any owner has experienced this issue till now.
Punto is giving a rather loud squeak with a hint of thunk kind of noise in rear right wheel when passing over a pothole( to put in more precise words, narrow trenches dug cutting across the road and then half filled in a shabby manner). Funny thing is that the sound is not there when the wheel passes over a speed-breaker. "
pls check your shocks , I had to replace my shocks under warranty due to this sound .

Nice. Very nice actually. I am getting 17.4 per liter with AC. Daily run is around 52 kms. Around 40 of that will be on BETL I guess.
I am the one with biggest smile in the fuel bunks.

And the car has come to its own after 15k kms. Its a total different beast now. Smoother and more rev friendly. Only niggle is that silly rear left hand rubber door beading which keeps coming off. In spite of it getting replaced once.

They promptly replaced the shock absorbers. The right rear one was changed and the problem gone forever.

Default Misty Nandi Hills

Do not want to write a travelogue for this silly short trip.
Decided to go to Nandi Hills on the spur of the moment. Started at late 5.45 in morning.

Lets see some pics.

Need some help on this one.
I have that nagging beading which keeps coming off.
A battery which drains itself in 4 days flat.
A new creaky sound from left rear suspension.

I am kind of looking at some other service stations. Till now I have gone to concorde Dairy circle only. Any suggestions?

edit: How are prerna guys on outer ring road?

Go to prerana motors at kudlu gate electronic city road.
Meet Sudheendra (service advisor) , iam sure he will be able to help you out.
They are quite a competent unit , as far as FIAT cars are concerned .But take prior appointment before going
