Hi TFI Experts, I know you would have seen multiple posts on various dilemma in selecting a car. Before posting here I went through previous posts in pre-slaes forum, but couldn't come to a valid conclusion. Hence requesting for an opinion from you guys in the forum. Little background on myself : I am new to cars. Just have learned to drive and this is going to be the first car in my family. I am a great fan of FIAT Linea. Don't know why, but fell in love the very first time I saw her (may be the looks or the solid steering wheel, with great feed back etc .. ). So I was pretty much decided on the car I want and then started the usual long and rigorous search for used/new linea cars in the market and came down to the below three choices. Car options: Linea 1.4 T-Jet Emotion Pack (Single owner, 2011, Odo : 16K, minor scratches, warranty expired): Price 4.5L .. The price is too attractive to be true. So I am planning to take the car for nearby garage for inspection. Will also check the service history in FIAT to logically validae the Odo reading. Linea 1.3 MJD Emotion Pack (Single Owner, 2011, Odo : 37K, one dent at the rear bumper, warranty expired): Price 5.5L .. Planning to do the same inspection as in the above 1.4 T-Jet. Fiat showroom old stock. Brand new vehicle : 1.3 MJD Dynamic july 2012 model (confirmed from the VIN). After multiple negotiations, dealer agreed to give discount of 1.7L from On road price, for the car. Doesn't look to be a TD vehicle. When I went to see vehicle, I requested them to start the engine, they said that they have unplugged the battery, since the vehicle was idle for a long time. So was not able to check the engine, H based odo reading etc. I don't see any external wear and tear in the car. Checked all the 5 wheels. Looks brand new (rubber spokes are still seen). Visiting again this weekend and check the car with the team-fiat's recommended check list. Now the dilemma [Heart Vs Head]: Head: Being a new driver, should I go for used car and then try for new ones. The above mentioned two cars are dealer cars. Even after an inspection from an expert garage, is it worth the risk to buy from local dealers ? Is the 1.7L FIAT dealer discount for a brand new July 2012 model a good deal ? Heart: It's a NEW car. Take it !!! For any issue with the car, I can always reach out to you experts. I can also opt for a 5Yr warranty. I don't plan to sell the car unless it gives me serious issues. Planning to use the car for a long run. Not a 5Yr re-sale enthusiast. Should I be scared on the fact that will the FIAT turn out to be another Daewoo/Peugeot OR should I take a leap of faith and invest the full amount. Please share me your thoughts.
