  1. Has Toyota addressed the poor braking issue in the Fortuner in India?
  2. You are right about the 1.4 T jet. When one hears SPORTS, it has to be a petrol engine car with untamed horses under the hood !!

    Fiat dealers are calling up all the punto customers who's slave cylinder needs to be replaced and informing them. I got mine changed after the 1st service and now the gear shifting is very crisp.
  4. The fixed mirrors without electrical adjustments in the Toyota Innova is a really good one. You can have the full view of the road behind and reversing the car using the mirrors is a child's play !!Whether it's a short driver or a tall one, at any position of the driver seat one does not have to adjust the vision.

    @sb_alto, Engine oil is the same provided by Fiat. Will look for the green cotton filter, Thanks.

    Still looking out for the filter! I hope going in for a performance filter does not have any effect on the warranty of the car.

    I did not go for the low profile tyres and reduce the ground clearence as you have some of the most notorious, unscientifically designed road humps in Karnataka !!

    I have placed an order for the metallic Abarth badge with a tool & die maker. It's been a couple of months now and am yet to hear from him!
  10. M&M Thar, which was showcased in the AutoExpo should be a good choice as you can even show it off in the city !!

    @dr_nishu, I have not done any interior mods.
  12. Its good to see the car manufacturers taking responsibilty for the defective products. This shows that they really care for their valued customers. Manufacturing defects are bound to happen once in a while, but owning up for it is the true spirit of leadership. Recently, even Fiat India has been calling up customers to inform them about replacing master slave cylinder of a particular batch even before they posed any problems in the car. Atleast now they are realizing that their customers cannot be taken for granted !!

    Thanks. It took a lot of reference from the ABARTH to get the matching colours.

    @5u3zero 195 was the OE, so I went for 205. The grip is amazing, especially in the ghat roads which I frequently do.(western ghats, Agumbe). By the way, you also seem to prefer the Sdrive!!
