    Fiat Showroom - Pandit Automotive Pune

    Well my experience with Pandit had been good till this issue happened.

    This is my second run-in with a car dealership this year and am beginning to hate them now.

    Back ground

    I booked a Fiat Linea TJet from Pandit Automotive in Pune on Sep 15 and the price quote given to me was as below and I paid the same before taking delivery. There were some freebies including insurance but we could ignore that since the problem is with the exshowroom price and registration tax.
    [TABLE="width: 164"]
    <tbody>
    Ex Showroom
    893602

    Registration
    81349

    Insurance
    18429

    Extended Warr
    7303

    Logistics
    5500

    Total
    1006183
    </tbody>[/TABLE]

    On the day of taking delivery, on reaching home found out that there was an anomaly in the invoice generated and the tax receipt w.r.t the ex showroom price.
    [TABLE="width: 195"]
    <tbody>
    Ex Showroom
    883596

    Registration Charge
    550

    Registration Certificate of Taxation
    79524
    </tbody>[/TABLE]

    I immediately raised a concern with the dealer as well as FIAT and he said they were facing a problem with the RTO and he would generate the receipt within a couple of weeks and it should all be fine.

    After a continuous one month follow up, they issued me a new invoice with the correct invoice price 893602.

    Analysis and Intrigue

    But what got me intrigued is this.
    The road tax in Pune is 9% for a fiat Linea TJet. The tax receipt of 79524 is exactly 9% of the first showroom price of 883596. So I asked the dealer to give me an incremental tax receipt for the incremental exshowroom price paid which the dealer said he would give it initially but now says that RTO doesnot issue incremental tax receipts.

    Unanswered questions
    Now the questions that are nagging me

    1. Is the dealer short changing in both the exshowroom price as well as the tax? Has he inflated the exshowroom price by 10000?
    2. How does this anomaly in exshowroom price happen? All I can think is that Fiat reduced the prices of TJet by 10000 in the month of October and the whole fiasco happened.
    3. Is there anyway I can verify this?

    Good Experience with Pandit Auto, Pune

    Hey guys,

    I booked my Tjet Emotion from Pandit on 17th Dec 13 as my experience with Sky Moto was not good(Pretty bad you can say). My sales representative was Gurnain. Very professional guy.

    I didnt faced any issues while arranging finance through them. A small grouse was that they didnt asked for all the papers required at once.

    PDI underwent smoothly. Delivery was scheduled for 1st week of January.

    Though gurnain went on leave during my vehicle delivery day, remaining team managed it quite well.
    They were helpful in giving demo of the car, paperwork, etc.

    Overall a very good experience and I as per my personal experience will rate them 9/10.

    Lets hope that service center is also helpful and knowledgeable while dealing with car!

    Hi,
    I bought my T jet emotion from Pandit on Dec 5. Overall a very good experience . My case was handled by Nachiket Vaidya. He was extremely cooperative . Whenever documentation , signatures were required , he himself came home and completed the formalities. The entire staff was quite co-operative including Mr. Shinde - GM. The delivery was effected as committed and the experience was too good.

    I am expecting the same for service too. With Tata JV the service aspect was really excruciating .

    I have had not so good experience with pandit guys....They didnt deliver on time.....i had to follow up everytime for everything.... False commitments. I was told you will be given a gold coin not seen yet...i was told that Fiat is having lucky draw if selected Fiat will pay ex-showroom price.after booking when i asked the details they said they dont know...It was sham I think...I just hated the overall experience of buying the car....

    Fiat it is....

    Was there any lucky draw scheme/Gold coin scheme? I never saw any reference in prints, media, FB, Twitter, etc. Did you escalate to their GM or other higher management?
    Fiat responds quite quick nowadays.

    Happy Riding!

    Finally there is an update to this case!! Pandit guys have given me an incremental certificate of taxation receipt worth 1100 translating to roughly 12000 extra for the car from the RTO. This incremental tax receipt from them means that this query can be closed. It took time from them but I really appreciate Pandit Automotive guys in getting the tax receipt though I had to do so much follow ups and put Mr. Kapoor through some excruciating experiences to get he same.

    IN the end All izz well!! :)

    @jaykis,

    I guess the interaction with Mr Manish Mishra during the TFI meet did help in resolving the long pending issue. I hope Pandit motors must have noted that they cant take the TFIians for granted.

    Should be all FIAT Customers:).

    My buying experience with Pandit has been good. There was difference in the price of ex-showroom and the receipt I got from them, however, they had refunded the excess amount within couple of weeks.
