First of all let me thank everybody on TFI who guided me and provided me with clear instructions and answers for my queries on my thread "Expert Advise required on buying a used Punto Emo Pack". I take this opportunity to thank few of fellow Fiatians by taking there name. Thank you for helping me Gurjinder, ghodlur, shams, krismask, limraj, Nadeem Ahmed VR 46, Jotinder, PatchyBoy, Arkin, Flywheel,and Ravi. I also would like to apologise to most of them as they wanted me to go for a New vehicle rather than buying a used car as used car market is very notorious and I may get cheated at any point of my buying. But however its something else which was written on my destiny. Introduction ---------------- I work for a reputed MNC bank in Chennai and my work place is hardly 12 kms from my home. Due to the generous nature of Transport team, I was put in a cab where 6 other people were there and I used to be the first pickup and last drop and this used to take a good 2 hours of my time everyday. So I decided to use my Ugly back tinny (read Maruti Ritz) to go to office. despite of feeding her with costly portion of food which costs 75 rs/litre, she used to serve hardly 10-12 kms on that. Thanks to my roads that will not allow me to go beyond 2nd gear/20-30 km/hr speed. Then I had this idea of buying a diesel car fed in to my mind by one of my colleagues who had recently bought a Punto Emotion pack Demo car from one of the tata dealers for a very good price. I would say that was the turning point and I got to drive his vehicle occassionally which led my hatred grow for the tinny back. I first looked for Demo vehicle for a similar price what my friend got it for. I was disappointed to find that with Fiat parting with tata none of the tata dealerships had Punto demo vehicle. My next move was to check the price of new vehicles and found that it will minimum cost be 7.5-7.8 lcs on road with all the discounts in place. I never considered Active Variant as it did not meet my minimum requirement list. If Dynamic version had atleast a USB enabled music system and 175 size tyres I would have gone for it with my eyes closed. Since the new car idea as well backfired, I was looking in to classifieds on Olx, Quicker and Carwale. I never approached any local dealer as I knew about the malpractices happening out there. I was attracted by an added posted by one of the Team BHPians to sell his Punto for 380000 which had done 38k kms. But it was too late by the time I contacted him as it was already soldout. Then I came across few vehicles with heavily run odo's of 75k, 85k and 1.2l. Even though I was pretty much aware of the capability of MJD's to do atleast 1.5-2 laks kms, I was a bit finicky about the maintanance cost of such heavily run vehicle. How did I find Her ----------------------- I came across an Ad in olx for a 90hp Punto with 14000 on odo for 7 lcs. I contacted him and told him about my intention of buying it but with in a strict budget of 5.5 lcs which he politely denied. One month later the same ad re-appeared with 16k kms on odo but this time the price was 6.4 lcs. So I called him again and he was ready to settle down for a price of 6 lcs I tried negotiating further and somehow managed to strike the deal at 5.8lcs. I know that I might have paid 30-40k in excess for minimum but fiatians make most of their decisions from heart and are not subject to wallet or brain. will post some pictured soon.
