@Aniket Dessai Folks in this forum also have the same question. Whether Fiat will stay or abandon. Whatever they do spares should be available for 10-12 years. The spares for regular wear and tear of the diesel punto/avventura should not be a problem. There are people in India who still own a Palio and there are taxi drivers in Mumbai who still putter around in a Premier Padmini. So spares should be available in the worst case. Its a question of leap of faith. I took a leap of faith recently and there are more people in this forum who have bought Fiat cars and love them. Having said that I see a lot of Fiat cars in Chennai roads and there are couple of good/decent service centers here. But how it would be in Goa and if there are good service centers nearby or in and around Goa is a call you have to take.
