Now that there is understandable. You have more and more resentment as you try to dig deep. Your best bet is form a local Fiat support group and Bangalore is a very active Fiat place. So nothing is going to convince anyone to see it in any different light, except it was a very overwhelming incident, but people have come out from bigger incidences. I personally have a great big story of wanting to kill myself due to car issues and a Fiat mind you.. And by the way wronged by the most resourceful garage of Fiat this side of Mumbai. But there is one thing I knew that it's a mechanical thing and people around were taking for a ride and the car should not be blamed; its the people at Fiat or outside. And when I look at Punto and Linea I see what capability this company has wrt the way the cars are designed for a mass market vehicle and certain aspects need salute rather than bashing and people hold on to these nicer aspects and carry on with their routines. Car is important but once it takes your entire focus you will have misery. Go slow with a chewing gum attitude and towards the root of the issue. Someday you will appreciate what you would have lost parting with it, should you hold on to it. --- Double Post Merged, Apr 29, 2016 --- Why will everyone accept things when majority have different experiences. You must understand the empathy people have, but you certainly have a long way to go before you can really motivate opinions. And yes I am starting to think your agitation while understandable, if you have low tolerance for issues (not that this is a small issue) you kindly reconsider your decisions, because there are huge majority here who would sail through these issues without complains.
