    Good to hear this, FIAT should market T Jet in a big way :D.

    Any clue whether this is going to be the facelifted version that is made available in Turkey ?

    Even if fiat brings in tjet how many of us Indians will be tempted to buy that jet?? People shy away seeing the price tag, but dont loose an opportunity to buy the same car even if it is 2 years old(kept in the stock yard)when offered at huge discount.In this scenario it is very hard for companies like Fiat to survive.
    I am sorry if I have hurt anybodys sentiments, its just the way I felt.

    There are people right here in this forum who bought the T-Jet brand new when it was first launched. There are people who drooled at the car, wanted to buy it when launched but did not, due to various reasons. And then there are people who jumped at the opportunity to buy a technically new car, lying in the dealers stock yard for a massive discount, me included. I think that is a better option than buying second hand. I believe we, the dealer stockyard stock buyers, got the best car FIAT ever launched in India for throwaway prices. Though the car was lying in the dealer's yard I have not faced any issues with the car in the past 9 months of ownership.

    Circumstances dictate the decisions we make and these circumstances seldom remain the same, my friend. Each one of us change our outlook based on what suits us best. IMHO, the only reason the T-jet did not make waves the first time it was launched, was due to FIAT's lackadaisical marketing. I hope they get their act right this time around, so we don't have 2 year old cars lying around in the dealers' stockyards.

    Nothing personal there buddy.when I got a punto active back in 2009 august I got it without any discount, and in 2012 august I got Punto diesel with 50k discount.i would have got the car anyway even if there was no discount offered, I am so much in love with Fiat.and I think the price they ask is justifiable.
    But the mentality of most of the Indians as rightly stated in the Fiat ad,''thoda kam nahi ho sakta??'', where people buy cars based on the maximum discount offered.this results in cars like tjet, punto, fabia which were left unsold for months.
    And it isnt crime for car lovers like us to drool over marvelous piece of engineering.

    Fiat can think about launching limited edition Punto T-Jet to take on Polo TSI. This would have few takers among the enthusiasts. :)

    If fiat launches tjet in punto with 6 speedbdual logic gear box I think it will be a worthy competitor if polo tsi.
    But FIAT dont dishearten us Fiat lovers by launching limited edition tjet(read tjet sports) with sporty decals and stitching on seat.

    This is where FIAT is loosing out, they should take a leaf out from the Marutis and Hyundais on the marketing strategy. Both these companies are marketing their average products well and they are the market leaders :eek:. Why can't FIAT do that with their excellent products which everyone is drooling about ? FIAT should give some confidence to the prospective customers...

    In my case I was waiting for this T Jet launch for so long and I almost decided on some other model.. lucky that I didn't commit though :D
