No way could I wait that long.

That's Lipscombs for you, that's their standard waiting list..

I'd seriously consider giving Essex or London a ring, I'm never taking Carmen back

    I wonder whether Lipscombs must have a very busy service department. Or short staffing. Who knows?

    You have to get it sorted out pronto. I am not going to wait another two weeks.

    And that appointment on the 11th will be for a quick look, they'll have to order parts and want to book it in two weeks later to get it all done...

    Book it in elsewhere!! :(

    Its sad that build quality issues get to this point! I really do think even Fiat/Abarth look slightly down on the Puntos mainly as the 500 is such a good seller, you'd think they'd put an extra effort into the Punto's and really try and push their sales up in that market.

    As the Evo is much better looking than say the new shape Focus or Astra if that is really what the Punto's main rivals are these days

    Strange You're putting the Punto in the wrong grouping, its rivals are Corsa, Clio, Fiesta etc, not the next segment.

    See thats the thing its funny how the the segments get all muddled up.

    When I see a Punto it always seems more Focus/Astra than Fiesta/Corsa which I would have said that the 500 is up against but either way its a shame that Fiat didnt seem to put as much attention to quality into the Punto as the 500 but then again I havent really spent that much time in either of the Punto's to be fair

    The Punto and Corsa D are the same car chassis wise, strange that you would think it was otherwise, I suppose pricewise there is a lot of overlap between segments.

    Punto seems like a quality product to me (Evo anyway) don't see where it is a lesser quality product than the 500

    I agree with Sandys comment I have owned both cars there is no noticeable difference in Quality
