Let's not get into which part of the country is remote or rural and which is not. The fact remains, Fiat has sold its products here. Back in 2011, when I had purchased the car, there were approximately 15 dealers here from the erstwhile Tata-Fiat network. For all practical purposes, that knowledge qualifies as good enough 'homework'. After the Maruti, Hyundai, Tata and Ford vehicles, the other most common cars that I see around are Puntos and Lineas, not to mention the numerous Palios. Bro, I would have agreed to what you have said if it had only been a service/part issue. It is more to do with the absolute helplessness that one feels when a cherished possession is confined to the garage and the very people who are supposed to take care of issues turn a blind eye. I had suffered this fate for 2 years. Even then I didn't make as much hue and cry as I have done now when there remains not a single service point for my car and those of many others. As I had said elsewhere, even my TV, fridge, microwave etc. get better service backup than this. Lastly, what's the point of having an enthusiasts' car when it is not even drivable. In 3+ years I could only drive my car for 14575 kms.
