@acechip I just hope they're seeing the great truth of what you're saying in that post, sir. btw, the dealers=120 'pretence' is LONG gone, talk from Flynn is of 'dealer stabilization'. We know what that means, don't we! I don't see any chance of me or anyone else in my 'circle' of friends, and family buying yet another Fiat, even though there are several who do own one or have owned and loved one. Why would one want to replace the beauty that is the Linea (esp t-jet) with a Grand Sienna (t-jet?) somewhat-even-'better' though am sure the latter will be in every way? I do see Jeep as a good alternative, speaking not-much personally: do prefer like rusticnomad-sir the 500X, to the doomed/tragic-FIAT brand for FCA in india, ONCE the locally-made c-suv next year and a cheaper 12-16 lakhs type model comes too (2018?). Let's see. OR, surely better: just buy 2-wheelers in future: there are so many good, non-fake-oo, 'world-class' ones available now. It bothers me a lot whenever i meet this not-young friend who turns up on a Triumph Bonneville, bought at....about the price i paid for the Linea in 2014 at launch, having sold my Palio stile for er 'do paise', since the Linea is so sparingly enjoyed, or enjoyable, given traffic, congestion, time- and other murders on the roads in dilli-gurgaon. I find that i am too vulnerable to 'breathalyser tests' to enjoy the Linea, and still get home, whenever the congestion is low enough, i.e., very late nights once or twice a week. Meantime: the Italian owners of my only-real fun and automotive joy, Vespa, is also down a lot in sales. And the south delhi as well as gurgaon dealers have shut down. No doubt, then, i'll end up buying the tempting-as-hell Aprilla 150 sports-scooter they've launched at the Auto Expo for local manufacture later this year....from dealers FAR way in North or East Dilli. One of them will probably have shut shop too by then. Ha.
