“Grande Punto Dualogic 1.4 8v of November 2006, 35.000km: ”

Written on: 11/04/2009 by sr138 (1 review written)

Grande Punto Dualogic 1.4 8v of November 2006, 35.000km:
Good car, quite low fuel consumption when driving, here on Dutch highway carefully (circa 108 km/u) 1 li on 15.1 km (1:15,1) real. Engine is very silent and the car drives smooth. Also the gearbox works perfectly.
Big positive point is acceleration on highway, 80-120km/u in less then 16 seconds. Also the excellent seats (Sportsound) and good and luxury equipment .
Negative is that the hard undercarrigage. Also the steering is too light… Read Full Review

Fiat 1.4 TDI Dualogic, Fuel economy, easy to drive & comfortable. The continuous stopping of the engine at intersections & roundabouts now fixed.(ECU problem) Loud thud from clutch, now fixed.( Adjustment) Gear change erratic, some times OK, When climbing hills in Auto, gear change/cruise control picks any gear between 4th to 6th, just runs up & down between 4-6th gear rapidly… Read Full Review

I think the Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 is a nice car, easy to drive gear box not a problem. It's slow to pick up but who wants to be a boy racer? Better than the Vauxhall I had, maybe smaller but runs better… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2009

My Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 8V Dynamic Dualogic just lost power without warning and got me stuck in the middle of CTE right lane, had to switch off the engine and on again 2 times to get the gearbox to engage the gears again to move off), gear change is not smooth at all, pick up is so slow, any car out there can smoke you, aftermarket parts is limited and not many workshop know how to repair the car. Lousiest car I have ever driven. Dualogic? More like Nologic… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/06/2008 by crashmatt (2 reviews written)

I've had one new car in my life - this one. Wish I had never bothered. Awful dualogic gearbox that was beset with problems and Fiat dealers were useless. In 8 months had new gearbox, steering, doors, seals, engine mounts, radio and clutch. All in 5000 miles. Avoid this car at all costs!… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2008 by beesknees2004 (8 reviews written)

I purchased this car in January 2008 in Exotica red. I had a good deal on the 06 Suzuki Swift I part exchanged and also had another £1235 off the list price.So far I have been very impressed with the fuel consumtion around 42.5mpg on mostly short journeys. I would expect this to rise as the engine beds in. One of the reasons I checked out the Grande Punto was the inside space as I am 6'4".With the 4 way adjustment on both the steering and drivers seat I would imagine most people could get… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2007 by Lukelaguna (13 reviews written)

Avoid the Fiat Grande Punto Dynamic Dualogic unless you want a sore ear and wondering if you will make it to your destination without being stuck on the M1 at rush hour with your hazards on (happened to me). Maybe the car would stand a chance without that poor gearbox. So, if you must have one, make sure the word "Dualogic" is not running through your head!… Read Full Review
