    My 5 year old Grande Palio MJD

    5 years on my Palio....

    Well, it all started exactly 5 years ago; today is the day my Grande Palio MJD completes 5 years of ownership and i loved every moment of this fantastic work horse.
    10/dec/2010, I got the car from Prerana motors, Bangalore.

    This car was one which I did't want to miss just because of the wonderful engine it had plus add the driving dynamics of Palio, the highway stability is what I like the most.

    I am comfortable in the car at good speeds(triple digits) overtaking on the outside of a curve in the highways, the car is planted.. unlike other cars that i have driven in similar speeds (some have given me goose bumps at those speeds).


    This one is at Gavi, Kerala.

    Clocked about 65000 kms; have travelled only in South India mostly. Been to Hyderabad, Chennai, Tirupati, Kanyakumari, Kollur, Mangalore, Travelled entire Kerala as its my hometown. And to some nice and beautiful places like Kodai, Gavi (lesser known, but fantastic place). Drove on the Muzhupilangad driving beach recently.

    I have replaced the clutch kit and the master cylinder at around 45000 kms. As well as the tyres were replaced around at the same time.
    Now running Yoko 185/70/R13.

    Dear DKM,

    Hearty congrats on your 5th anniversary.

    Palio is one hell of great car whatever the version they had, be it 1.2, 1.6, 1.9 or Multijet.

    If the car in good condition, we may never wanted another car albeit the maintence is little costly. But, we have Fiat loving maniac friends all over India to help us. Don't we?

    Cheers Mate.

    Best Regards,
    Raaj.

    Re: My 5 year old Grande Palio MJD

    That first pic of the new car reminded me of the day when I took the handover of my Palio Stile 1.6 in Feb 2008. That fresh coat of paint and the dust-free sections of the new car will always remember a special memory for any new car owner.

    The MJD was indeed a wonderful car and we have members here who have crossed 1 lac kms and plenty more in this mile cruncher.

    If you have mastered the gearbox of the MJD you can keep up with most cars under the 12-14 lac segment.

    I know how Jeetu Rane's MJD didn't lose sight of my TJet all the way from Goa to Pune in one of our National Meets

    Enjoy many more miles with your beauty and keep sharing your experiences

    The car looks so fresh like just out of the factory As you said the Palio has always maintained its ride quality and balance although this Stile model had a bit more body roll due to increased GC.

    This model could had added more sales to it when it was launched if only the idiots at the Fiat management introduced new interiors!

    If Figo could resurrect Ford back into the market during its launch, why couldn't the Palio Stile MJD?

    BTW I see its a 2010 model. Did you booked during the Dhamaka offer?? As i remember during that offer, Fiat had introduced some of Punto colors to the Palio Stile MJD, like the bossa nova white, grey and red and it was offered in dirt cheap prices. In mumbai itself it was costing around 4.2L for top model.

    Wish you happy Lakho miles to your Palio
