    New to the group/Mumbai

    Dear All

    I just moved into Mumbai recently.. I own a Fiat palio 1.2 since last 7 years.. My Fiat journey started 7 years ago when I was looking for a car.. I test drove almost all cars, but felt driving a Fiat was something different.. So finally bought palio 1.2 from a Fiat enthusiast that time as a temporary arrangement for about 1 to 2 years.. But it's been 7 years now.. I still don't feel like selling this machine.. It has run more than 1.25L now.. Even now every time I take it out on an highway, it's an amazing experience.. And I'm sure you all know more than it owning 1.6's and recent generation of Fiat in India..

    That's little bit about me, will be happy to get you all know i n upcoming meets..

    I know few Fiat members Chennai and Bangalore.. But not from Mumbai and Pune region..

    It's been almost a year now in Mumbai and I see I have to get my palio serviced thoroughly.. It may need few spares replacement..

    I'm looking for a good mechanic and help on Spare parts.. Can you please suggest..

    I stay in Dombivali East in Nilje gaon..

    Thanks

    Welcome to MyFiatWorld, Sreenivas

    Wow 1.25L kms on a petrol Palio! Superb. How many kms you ran since you bought?

    BTW on the servicing part, i think Hrushikesh or Multijet can guide you better incase they know someone in Dombivili.

    I do it with a local mechanic in Vashi, Navi Mumbai.

    Do post some pictures of your Palio.

    Cheers~

    Welcome to the forum @sreenivasps and congratulations on clocking 1.25 Lakhs on your Palio! I agree with you about the fact that this car is very difficult to let go, in spite of numerous issues one may have to face during the ownership. Its such a bliss on the highways. When other sedans and MPVs are bobbing up and down on undulations, the Palio stays stiff and gives you the confidence to drive fast.

    I have a mechanic by the name of Biju at Goregaon East who takes care of my Palio and is generally considered good for Fiats.

    Lets connect during one of our local meets which happens pretty regularly.
