Woah! I bumped across this thread pretty late - just like Delhi Police arrives on the scene much later - but that was because I as traveling and had not accessed the forum in last 2 weeks. Glad to see another TJet+ being added to the TFI family and more importantly, Xplorauto's persistence (and luck) in sorting out the deal. When I booked my TJet it was a 3 month old vehicle allotted to me. Since I had chosen Oct 6th as a delivery date, it essentially meant that by the time I took delivery, it would turn another 3 weeks older. But still I chose to go ahead. Why? SImply because the ENTIRE package is unmatched - feature-wise, technology-wise, experience-wise and price-wise. Yes it has rust on the brake discs (which several people confirmed to be superficial and not a deal-breaker) and some minor roof beading mis-alignment issues as well. Apart from this, I had *very minor* paint chip (caused by bursting of the paint bubbles, I was told) on the front RHS. But my dealer gave me verbal and written assurance of getting it solved in *whichever way I choose* i.e. touch up or re-paint. I did not avail any option at the time of delivery but reserve the right to get it corrected whenever I feel. Net-net : One needs to look at the bigger picture. A car is made of metal and alloys and improper storage (i.e. being exposed to elements) can cause rusting in ANY make/model - be it Tata, Fiat, Hyundai or whatever. Our bad luck that Fiat has handed over the distribution network to the Tatas, who are absolute duds in execution. One drive in a Fiat, and more specifically a TJet is enough to silence the most vocal critics and please the most eager enthusiasts. When I booked the car, I had the niggle aspect as a backdrop but was more focused on identifying mechanical and technological issues. There are some minor issues (e.g. old/dated tires, stupid OEM ICE) which I ignored - as I was to change them. But touch-wood, there were no other *deal breakers*. Fiat engines are remarkably built and are built to last. The handling, aided by the hydraulic power steering beats the shi* out of so called modern Electronic Power Steering controlled cars. Braking is exceptional and the car provides a VERY secure feeling on the road. I guess this seals the deal. To be fair - which other car at this price point can tick all boxes in the above check-list at one go? To top it off, we have the TJet with ABS, EBD and airbags. These are essentials in buying a sedan (or any other car for that matter) and uncompromisable. IMHO rest all other factors - looks, features, gizmos etc are subjective to an individual's taste.
