I can't wait to see the back of it.
Ugh Punto's are nasty things tend to really go downhill after 3 to 5 years old you'd think that the owners of Ferrari would be able to make a decent affordable car by now but noooo that's just askin way too much the Jimny is a far better buy and who knows maybe in a few years you may like a new model Swift which was voted car of the year this year a major improvement from Suzuki.



Good Luck with it anyway

Well to be fair the punto was a great little car to learn to drive in. But that's about it, I wouldn't be in a rush to get another one, ever! I don't like fiat dealerships anyway, initially when I took it there they fleeced me on the first service & I found out on saturday there's a problem with the gearbox in mine. They sometimes grind when changing from first to second gear & I always thought that was me hitting the accelerator too hard. I remember telling fiat about this on the first service but when I picked it up later the grinding was still there. Hence my thinking it was my driving then. Yer man who looked at my car on Saturday told me the gear box shoulda been replaced first day when I told fiat. Bastards. Grrrr!!!

Anyhoo, thanks for all the advise & pointers, will post a pic of my new baby (if &) when I get her!!
