I'm new to automobile world, need some inputs.
Recently bought a Fiat Punto 1.2 Emotion, having fun driving.
Being a owner of Palio 1.2ELX, found Punto to be far better in terms of handling and all.
But still i sometimes feel Palio is spacious than Punto, may be my perception.
I'm planning for a road trip Pune -> Hyderabad.
Know the route is Pune - Solapur - Humnabad - zaheerabad - hyderabad.
Can someone help me with the current road conditions in between.
What is the best time to start, in order to avoid traffic?
My plan is like this, to start at around 10PM in Pune and reach Hyderabad by 10AM(considering 12hr journey).
And also what things needs to be checked before and after such long drive.
As i don't have much driving experience, plan to keep a driver.
And one more thing, this vehicle just did 1300Kms in 3 months.
The service interval for Punto is 5000Kms / 6 months.
Should i get first service done before taking this trip? (is this a good idea?)
Does taking for drive before first service has any impact on engine ?
Help is highly appreciated.
