    Hi Himanshu,
    Good luck with your Linea purchase. As you mentioned this is a 2012 model from showroom but just find out if it is a demo car or just a display model lying in showroom. If it is a display model with not many KMS run on ODO then just do a detail PDI (Pre delivery inspection). You can find a PDI list from here http://www.teamfiat.co.in/team-fiat-downloads/2058-fiat-specific-pdi-v3-0-new-format.html#post41923. With your post I can see you are getting a good discount so I belive you can go for it.
    But if this car is a demo peice which is most probably extensivly used & abused by many hands so I'd suggest to be over cautious and also take a good mechanic while doing a PDI & see if any part are replanted in other cars from it when car was lying in showroom or yard. If you are satisfied by everything, you can start doing bargain hard for a demo car.

    Hi himanshu... As said by Rachit please have the PDI checklist and go with the mechanic... Hope they will show the vehicle before booking it... Especially check the car in the daylight for damages/repainting... If the car was used as a demo then my suggestion would be not to go for it...

    Hi Himanshu, Ensure that battery is in good condition else ask the dealer to change to a newer battery. Going with a mechanic for PDI will be good.

    Hi antony the car is not a demo . I will go through the checklist. I checked the vehicle in the showroom it was clean but will check it again once I read the checklist

    Hi Vishi, regarding battery the dealer is saying that you will get the warranty from the date of purchase. So I feel convinced as he is saying that we cannot change anything in stock vehicle.

    Hey himanshu, H65 seems good to go, but as others have suggested, do a detail PDI, check for any rust, repaint/patch work. All the best.

    :eek:fftopic - Use edit button instead of back to back post, himanshu :)

    Hi

    Test Drive for 20-30 kms

    You must get the tyres and all fluids replaced even if they seem in good condition and all rubber parts e.g wipers , belts noise, speakers etc

    Also check that you get current 3+2 warranty completely

    Atleast must to get is 50% discount [ 5 lacs ], then only it make sense

    Thanks
