    Punto Selection and Buying Experience

    From the day I want to change my 6 years old Alto Lxi, I was exploring different forums and cars with-in budget of 10L. I was looking all B2 Hatchbacks and was impressed with Punto looks, however initially wife rejected all hatches and was impressed with looks of Linea and Honda City.

    Since all hatches are rejected, we narrowed down to Ertiga, however due to Waiting time and year-end, we did not decide on Ertiga. Then due to personal reasons reduced the budget to 8L, and Ertiga with must have features is out of list for this budget. Since wife rejected all hatches, I have booked Swift Zxi in December with waiting period of 2months, the decision was selected as it is the default hatch.

    But after waiting for nearly 2months, wife started saying Swift does not look great and then asking me to take to I20, Figo, Polo and Punto showroom. Friend also recommended Punto over Swift.

    Then the day we have seen Punto closely in KHT motors, Wife was exited by the looks and straight away said, this looks better than Swift. Since I was already impressed by Punto, we decided on Punto immediately.

    First impression with FIAT dealers is, do not expect many SA's to come near you, when you enter FIAT showroom compared to Hundai, Maruti, and Ford. And no offers of Water/Tea/Coffee. We went ahead and started exploring White Punto in showroom, then after sometime one SA has come and asking about my interest. I heard of Punto Performance, Stability, Comfort and handling dynamics, but not an expert in that area to select car with these aspects in mind. And also KHT motors does not have Test Drive vehicle for a long time (for that matter all dealers have same answer). Now the toughest part of buying is negotiations with dealer for offers. Called different dealers about delivery time and offers available. Dealer offers were all same and nothing was interesting. Hence decided to book with KHT, as this was very near to my home.

    Once we are impressed with Punto looks, we narrowed down to Red/Tuscan Wine colours and asking about feature differences between Emotion and Dynamic as both are around my budget. Since we decided on the vehicle, I was insisting on Test Drive to check comfort for my driving style. Since there is no test drive vehicle, I had to wait for couple of days. Finally SA offered a vehicle for test drive and I was happy with that and did not feel any resistance on the road. SA promised to delivery the car within 3 days of receiving Purchase Order from Company as it is under lease. However it was not true, and I was also not bothered to check the minimum time required to get the vehicle as I was excited to get car ASAP, after a long waiting for 3-4months.

    Finally made booking at KHT on 2nd Fed with a delivery date of 12th (if he receives PO within 5 days). I pushed hard at company to process this in 3days. Once company has given PO, then asked SA about the delivery date. Then the truth comes that car is not yet arrived it will arrive in 3days then another 3days and then another week. Finally it arrived in Bangalore on 19th and another 3 days for registration process.

    Meanwhile, I got to know about TFI through internet forums and registered for a membership. I was going through other FIATIANS buying experience, dealership reviews, ownership reviews and other stuff about Punto. This forum has created bonding/attachment to this little Italian beauty more and more I see the pictures on this, getting more excited to drive this.

    AS many other FIATIANS suggested, I went to KHT Stockyard with my wife for PDI. Did not do comprehensive PDI, as the CAR was not cleaned and parked in middle of many cars with no/less room for inspection. Did some basic Exterior, Interior inspection and verified VIN etc., Planned to go again with Friend for comprehensive PDI. My Friend did some part of PDI and then CAR got registered on 22nd and delivered on 23rd.

    Impression with KHT was mixed, as I do not have much trouble and also do not have great experience. Everything was smooth with KHT motors and also, Sales Associate Irshad M was good, handled everything smoothly, except the promise to delivery in 7-10days, when the car is not available.

    After all selection/decision/delay, it is standing in the Parking Lot, and am happy with the Car. Now its time to take it on road for some nice driving experience.

    Congrats Murthy. Please start a purchase / ownership review thread. Get behind the wheel and hit the road - I am sure you will forgive all the lapses on the part of the SE. This beauty is built for putting a smile on your face each time you drive and it sure delivers on that promise :D
