Refer to the car's owner's manual to gain comprehensive knowledge about it.Otherwise when you take your car for a regular service you can ask all that you want to know from the service guys there.

no douby fiat palio is gud enough car in its segment but the basic problem is trust... as there are no service station for this car if you want palio than you must have a guud engineer near by your area although if you think tata than forget they cant give you gud services,, once i visit to tata showroom for punto they said fiat se acha to tata ki gaadi le loooo
i dont know why they people dont having interst in selling fiat cars ..
