Booked White Angel- 1.3 Emotion in Puducherry

Discussion in 'Pre sales query' started by Aadikesh, Feb 27, 2012.

  1. Hi Guys,

    My first post in this forum.

    I booked Punto before 2 weeks that time i able to reach LineaLover, Ramjn and Teky of this forum. They shared many tips to negotiate the Price. Initially i thought i can negotiate by myself, once they came to the picture they gave me lot of tips to negotiate. Really I would to thank everyone.

    Last Saturday dealer called me for PDI. I took our Forum PDI check list and I have done a PDI on the same day. It went for almost 3hours and 30 minutes. Everyone got surprised that none of their customer never did PDI for such a detail manner. And they asked about the PDI list, I proudly told them that I got it from FIAT forum. :)

    During PDI i found 20 defects. In that most of them are related to mild scratches under the hood and few are interiors. Major things i noticed are

    1. Stepney is old one i.e June2011 make(2411) :-?
    2. Seat Height adjuster got struck(While Pushing down i did by manually but didn't come up automatically):oops:

    I asked them to fix all the 20 defects before get delivery. They agreed it.

    Guys, I need your help to know that issue 1 is normal one or not and Issue 2 is fixable one or not.

    Hello, Congrats on your new car.

    The seat does not come up automatically. The Height adjustment lever works in two directions. Pumping down from original positions will take the seat down and pumping upwards (Pulling action) from original position brings it back up.

    Both of your issues are minor.
    For seat adjusting lever, tell them to replace it with new one.
  4. Aadikesh ,
    Congrats on your booking .

    Ask them to give you a latest manufactured spare tyre . It should be possible

    This is normal . No issues here

    Hey Aadikesh, welcome to TFI. And Congrats on booking the car. As Ravi pointed out, both are minor issues.
  6. Vj_v1: Yeah I agree. What i noticed in that car is "Once i pumped down from original position will take the seat up and the lever is not coming back to the original position". I have to pump up to the original position . . Is it correct manner of seat height adjustment?
