We asked at the dealer when we ordered it if we could have one instead of the kit. Had to pay a little extra but no real problem. It should be with us Friday.... apparently.

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Our new Easy 1.4 77bhp wascollected today. We couldn't collect it any earlier as we were away in France and Spain in the 116d

I had asked for the oval exhaust trim, f&r flaps, under bonnet sound insulation and chrome grille to be supplied but not fitted.

Well this didn't happen The exhaust trim is the two port blank one - ahhh well it'll do; the flaps were correct; the chrome grille isn't the one for the 2012 car so back we go tomorrow . As for the bonnet trim - I was told they couldn't find it on their parts list - It must be part of the bonnet - we will ask Fiat UK where it is.
Best thing is they had a diesel in the showroom with one fitted

I have tried just now to look at ePer on here but it isn't new enough. Is there a newer version somewhere I can look at and fid the part number for the ****** ****** ******* ****** ?

Apart from that there were two small chips out of the paint - OS flank and NSF h/lamp. Oh and we didn't get the handbook or service books in the car - only noticed when we got home

Deep joy

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Hi TPS1979

many thanks for that.

I don't know why it is so diffcult for a Fiat dealer to find it and his eper will all be in English.

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Their lack of ability continues!

I took the grille back last Saturday for a refund and was told that they would refund my card but couldn't do it there and then as they hadn't the authority to do so. Fair enough.

Anyway Wednesday I get a call to say a cheque is waiting for me because it is company policy Yesterday I went to the dealer only to find this was the case or so the parts fellow said.
So a visit to the Dealer Principle and I found out it was not policy to issue cheques - just incompetence
They did order the bonnet insulation.

When I asked for an accessory brochure for the 2012 Punto I was given one for a GP and Evo
The DP said he would send on the correct one but I am wondering if there is actually such a thing as maybe Fiat UK hasn't published one yet. Time will tell.

Oh the joys

PS the car is great

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Looks like your dealership needs a kick up the a***
Nice cars though.

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

I agree they could do with a good kicking. Still, it was better than 4 years ago when I last had the mishap to use them; at least they didn't tell me out and out lies this time.

It is just incompetence this time

As far as I am aware there is not an accessory brochure for the Punto MY 2012 (yet) I imagine that they are still trying to shift a fair amount of EVO bits and are biding there time.

Agree with you though. The car is fantastic.

Having checked with another dealer today they weren't able to supply one either. So this backs up your thoughts.

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Well, 1000 miles in with the new Punto and its fantastic, drives like a dream and getting very good MPG out of it, I think I've only spent £100 on fuel. Happy days.

Re: Welcome to the New Punto 2012 section

Hi all

Just a 1000 miles up for ours so far. The mpg is very good at an overall 45mpg. The best on a run I have seen after a long run was 49.7mpg for the trip.
