My opinion on the new Punto

I have now got hold of a Fiat Grande Punto in Exotica Red 1.4 Dynamic. I am very pleased with this car, being my third Fiat now. had to wait eight weeks or so for the car to be built due to the ad ons I went for. As ever the feel of the car remains typically Fiat, but the difference is that this car feels very solid comapred to the others. It handles well, and the extra features I added were well worth the extra cost. In all this car is an absolute stunner, people have already commented on how nice it looks. I have had no problems with the trim, faults so far.

One question though. I had the mop3 and subwoofer. With that option does the car automatically updgrade to the 40 watt sound system. I was told that it had to be as other wise it could not power the subwoofer. I don't know much about these things.

For anybody else, do not hesitate about this car, for looks alone it blows the competition away.

Re: My opinion on the new Punto

Well I have read some of the threads where people moan about this car. But I have had three Fiats now and am very pragmatic about cars in general. I tried out a few super minis as I was thinking about a different manufacturer. But in all honesty I came back to Fiat again. Their cars have some sort of hold over me LOL!!!. In any event I don't care if other people are negative about Fiat. They are no more por less reliable than other manufacturers as far as I am concerned. None of my other fiats (Uno) or Punto (mk 2) ever broke down, ever! In fact the Uno went non stop for years on end. Fiats remain the most stylish of cars and as with anything there will always be a few that come off the line and are not so good. I have been fortunate and I know that if you get a bad car tha it can be a real pain. But seriously, this car is really great.
