    i dont know why people r writing negative things. my friend is having a punto and till date it has not given any probs. i used to drive his beauty and it rocks. we r planning to buy one or a linea. if dealers r giving troubles why blame the vehicle.

    Thank you Yatinder. Those who R putting negative comments, R taken any money from other car companies??? I have a punto emotion ( petrol)in Navi Mumbai. The car is simply superb and its a head turner. No other car compare with Fiat punto. Engine is powerfull, Ac cooling is nice and Mileage is good. Whenever i see my car I feel proud to be a owner of such wonderfull and gorgeous car. So dont put such negetive points for such a car

    Punto Emotion Vs Swift Vdi 1. Huge boot space 2. Electronic controlled side mirrors 3. It has 2 trip meters 4. Both trip merters shows Average mileage, instantaneuos mileage and trip duration 5. It will display lot of details on the console display like: How many kms. you can go with the remainig diesel, Temp, Date, Stereo info, 6. It will also display in written like fornt right door open, if any door including boot is open 7. The folding key has in built center locking. 8. Auto down in all four power window and auto up in driving side. 9. Nice blaupunkt music system with a feature like volume increase & decrease with speed. 10. Driving seat height adjustment. 11. Stearing height adjustment. 12. Front and rear fog lamps.

    Are you kidding, How can you compare Swift to GP. Its miles apart. Have driven brand new swift of one of my friend to check the performance and interior, was not at all comfortable by the size of the exterior looks(came close to Indica - not the New vista), Then went for a test drive with GP, just Awesome.

    saji |14 Mar,2011 11:29:04 AM

    You are right Nikhil. I also have the punto emotion diesel,13000kms ,1.5 yrs, with 18.8km average mileage in Kottayam,Alapuzha, Ernakulam roads of Kerala. The instantaneous mileage indication helps in developing a good driving habit. Once I faced with a clutch problem during my drive. The low Hyd. fluid level indication displayed piror to the breakdown which I ignored caused the breakdown. This was due to leak in the fuil line . The service centre replaced the damage dcomponent free of cost.After this incident till now the car is performing well with out any problem . I feel Diesel version is more economical than petrol. as the pirze diff. is only around 45000-50000/ between the two. The only problem i feel with this car is that it is not suitable for rough road condition.

  • RAHUL |06 Dec,2010 08:57:10 PM

  • karthik |31 Dec,2010 04:46:51 PM

    hi every one i have a plan 2 buy a new punto any one can advise about maintainence cost and millage / litter?????

  • CarDekho Team |03 Jan,2011 01:41:33 PM

    The Fiat Grande Punto is a very well built car, Fiat cars are sold and serviced at all Tata Motors service stations and this is a good thing for Fiat owners. The Spares are not expensive as compared to before and the Punto requires less maintenence too. Expect 14kmpl on the Petrol and close to 18kmpl on the Diesel Punto. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Wat a F...k is this? Yaar inhoney kabhi car chalai bhi h? Cycle or rickshaw chalaney wale kya jaaney kya hoti hai aur comments kaisey karney hai. For making comment u shud have sound technical knowledge. I am an automobile professional since last 11yrs. I was the part of that R & D team who developed entire sealing system for Punto & Linea in 2008. What a gr8 hatchback car Punto is. Excellent 5star looks, at least 8 to 10 features which others don't have till yet. Plastic quality may not be that much clicking but I am sure that could not be the reason to switch over. Italian are gr8 designers, If nobody know...plz update urself. Price is little bit high...but don't worry...u will appreciate ur decision once u got it. I too planning to have Punto Diesel Emotion till the end of Nov.2011.
