    Good to know the update, ancientmariner

    However, maintain the presure by keeping on asking following infor till you get it with confirmation:

    • Whether your car is billed by Fiat to Dealer (ask some sort of reference like bill no. / date etc)
      [/*:m:2t1kjxy3]
    • Once the car is billed by Fiat to Dealer, he has VIN available. Ask for VIN.[/*:m:2t1kjxy3]

    Once you get both the above confirmation & the VIN, you can estimate that the car can be delivered to you in 3-4 days

    Well as long a you get the 2009 price for the 2009 produced car its fine to get it but if ur charged as per the 2010 then u'd probably bang the dealer for the miss...

    Well i got a 09Dec car on Jan 10 with the perks offered during the month of Dec....
    My car was registered on 3rd Jan 2010.... Technically my car is a 09 car but as per the RC card its 2010:)

    Has the dealer provided you the Chasis number and Engine number?

    Today I was informed by the Product Head (Fiat-Bangalore)that the car has not been built in the plant yet and is unavailable at present. It would take another ten days or so. :A . Now I really want to cancel the booking and go for another car. M totally pissed off. They offered me other colors like Electric Blue and Minimal Grey if I want it immediately. I said I would wait for the Red one. I have asked for a 'loaner car' in the interim. I hope they at least honour that. They have acknowledged that there was a mistake somewhere and the order was not placed with the Pune plant when I initially booked it on 15th May.

    Yes I am fine with the discounts offered on 2009 but to pass me a 2009 when I paid for 2010 is a BLUNDER !!
    I have started another thread in the 'What Car' section for the differences between 2009 /2010. At one point I thought I will go ahead with 2009 and ask for a hefty discount hence the thread.

    Its good that you are a knowledgeable buyer, normal buyer would have taken the delivery.
    This happens with all the dealers, whether its maruti or hyundai.

    Was the mistake acknowledged by FIAT or the dealer. Either ways you should pressurize them to give you a loaner vehicle. I know you have been working on the project of buying a car for a long time and such blunders from the dealer should not be a reason for you to start all over again. I would suggest that you ask the dealer/FIAT to get you the Chassis number as soon as the car is dispatched from the plant.

    Quite possible that it happens everywhere and people are taken for a ride. When I mentioned this to a friend who got a SX4 in 2009, he found out recently that his car was of 2008 make but he was given a good discount so he has no complaints now. However he was not told that it was a 2008 model :)

    The dealer acknowledged it. I am sure they made a mess (knowingly or unknowingly) when they were placing the order. Yea its been a long wait. I think I began my journey in March.
    Yes will take an update again in a few days and the VIN/Chassis number.
    Ironically, people I have spoken to here in Blore speak highly of this dealership and I am sure this is a one off case.

    I am also in touch with the couple who were delivered a 2009 model. They are also waiting for their Red 2010 E pack alongwith me.

    Come to think of it, this dealer is replacing the car for the other couple who have got a 2009 model. Well I think it really speaks volumes about the dealers sense of doing business. I am pretty sure this is a very rare thing even for any other business (Consumer Durables or anything). Today's world a dealer agreeing to mistake and then even going to the extend of replacing the car, its really difficult to get that.

    Looking forward to hear a good news from you on the Car.

    DON'T.
    Reason being that you've created enough pressure now & there is no reason they could afford any further delay. If you cancel, all your hard work of creating pressure would go in vain & you would have to start it all over again booking a new car, followup, wait etc etc, who knows the other dealer/ mfr also delays the delivery - as this happens quite regularly, then you'll end up in having a far higher total wait time than what you're having now. Don't fall prey to "Aasman se gira Khajur pe atka".

    Instead continue to mount pressure on this dealer & Fiat asking for VIN & whether the car is billed or not. Pressurise for an early deadline date from Dealer as well as Fiat.

    Cheer up, dude. Don't worry & don't spoil your mood of buying a fantabulous car. It happens everywhere & to anyone. I again repeat what I mentioned before - "CERTAIN THINGS IN LIFE ARE WORTH WAITING FOR". And I'm sure all these agonies would go away in a jiffy as soon as you would get your hands over steering of your new car - a proud possession. Till then drool & dream - its a great time though like time between Engagement & Marriage :wink:
