    I’m not blaming the dealer but experience has been disappointing. I chose Prerana primarily because they were closer to my office and offered me the best deal for my current car.

    For Krishna & other TFIans, I prefer to keep things black and white (no grey areas please)

    • I had clearly told SA that I’ll be handing over car only at the time of delivery as I don’t have any other vehicle. He did not have any objection but did asked me to submit RC book and insurance papers. I was open to this and asked him to collect it from my office. There were no further discussions in this regard and I assumed that Prerna was fine with the status quo. In the meantime, there were couple of discussions with SA as I wanted to change the invoice in company name. My company agreed to sponsor the car and dealer increased the price by 3K (due to some price hike or tax reasons). I did not create issue and my company went ahead with the revised invoice. There wasn’t a single instance during this period when I was told that my current car would be revaluated if I don’t handover.
    • I had to go out of Bangalore for 10 days but I did email dealer that I’ll be taking delivery after coming back. There was no issues form dealer even at this stage.
    • After returning, I emailed the scanned the copy of full amount cheque to SA and then comes the surprise about revaluation of car. I was disappointed because there was no prior communication in this regard and it comes only a day before PDI and only after communicating that cheque for full amount is prepared.
    • Still I went ahead and thought maybe they will reduce the resale value of car by max 5k. To my surprise, it was reduced by 25k. Whatever be the current market conditions how far is that reduction justified? They asked me for a compromise and I agreed for 10k reduction but still the deadlock pursued and I gave up. Even if everyone says market has gone down, I’ll not sell my car at 1.45 lacs…I’ll rather use it for few more years. Also, If I had to buy the car at full price (without exchange bonus), Adit (KHT) would have always been my first choice. I would have not haggled so much with Prerana.
    • Accidents, KMs travelled etc. -> Car hasn’t met any accident till date. Even for scratches and minor dents, I got the door panels, bonnet replaced. I was honest about all these things and informed the executive who was evaluating my car. Post-valuation, It would have run additional 1.5k.
    • Date of evaluation -> must have been in 1[SUP]st[/SUP] week of July when I started searching and TDing different cars.
    • Current offer -> they offered some freebies to compensate for the price reduction but I was not interested. My company has issued cheque for 8.x lacs and getting the cheque re-done is again a month long exercise. In the initial quote deal offered was - 15k exchange bonus + insurance at 4k + 3k corp discount. I can PM you the invoice, if required.
    In nut shell, I was disappointed because this 25k surprise comes only when I visit their showroom for PDI along with full amount cheque. I don’t deny that there could be miscommunication but how can we skip a communication which costs “25k”?

    I met another TFIan (subramanyam) in the showroom and he advised me to speak to Mr. Rangnath who is the manager of Lalbagh showroom. He had left for the day and when I asked Prerana staff for phone number/email id of Mr. Rangnath I was told that they cannot directly share the contact details of their manager.

    Other annoying part was they kept on giving long lecture on fiat and demand supply conditions to a person (read: me) who was instrumental in preparing the India market entry strategy of most luxurious car of Fiat family :p

    Firstly apologies if I had posted in such a way that gave a chance to interpret it in a different way.


    Subramanya is my very close pal who is picking up the Tjet. I had to step out for a couple hours that day, else even I would have met you in person and got hold of the actual then and there.

    I was digging out more details to help you out rather than supporting the dealer. I personally know Mr. Ranganath, so would taken this up directly with him.

    Even I am exchanging the car from Prerana. But let me tell you one thing, these guys dont offer a price just like that. They get the quotes from the market and the respective manufacturer used car division. I am selling my Liva. Toyota itself dropped 30K just from the period starting 26th of July to 23rd of August. In less than one month, thats their valuation, I cant blame them.

    Thanks to our Govt, flouting with news of hike in petrol prices, the resale will go down even if a gap of a week is given.

    Would you please list down the accessories that they offerred you? I bet it would not be the routine mudflaps, carpets and stuff.

    Do feel free to pm me, I will share my contact details and hopefully get the deal through.

    Quick update guys...My car book booking issue has been resolved. Mr. Rangnath (Prerana Motors) pitched in and offered a "tolerable" deal.

    Special thanks to TFIian Krishna who helped me throughout the process.

    A PDI issue has cropped up and I have posted the details in a separate thread.

    Congrats that the deal went through. Welcome to the FIAT Family. The deal you got is a good actually.

    By the way how did you get hold of Ranganath Contact details since I did not share it with you?

    And a request from my end, please don't share the contact details on a public forum. Thanks in advance.
