    Hi Sunil216,
    Did the dealer gave you any expected delivery date? Fiat should definitely improve on this.

    From what I have heard till now the car has lukewarm response.Many of my friends are interested in this car but they are waiting for "owner's opinion" before taking a foot forward towards fiat. The sale might pick up after some time if it goes well as it happened with ecosport.

    by the way I have booked a bronzo tan 1.3 MJD emotion variant.

    hey soon-to-be Avventura owners! Please accept my envy. ;-)

    Some waiting period is to be expected: managing supply chains and inventory and logistics at a now-busy factory (what with the Zest and upcoming Bolt too), and with dealers who cannot afford to carry too much inventory for too long. But: 2 months is excessive.

    Fiat must try to get as many cars out on the roads as soon as possible, say in the first 2-3 months. Only then will the Avventura's evident ability to market itself kick in: for sustainability of sales or even some sales increase.

    I talked to Fiat's Regional Manager & called customer care too. Avventura is getting a good response, but the problem is that being year end Fiat wants to limit the production as no customer would buy Nov/Dec 2014 manufactured models in the first quarter of 2015, hence waiting time.:sorry: They should have cared for the pre-launch bookings at least. :eek:

    Wonder what Fiat is trying to do here. Show some kind of artificial demand ? Prevent distress discount sale of stocks in future ? They should have known this all too well, taking their own sweet time launching the car POST- Diwali.
    Do they even have a proper Production department that reports to CEO ? Or is it a common function of the Tata-Fiat plant JV, and they have to balance out Fiat vs Tata Zest/Bolt on the line ? If so, then Fiat is really not going anywhere !

    This strategy will prove fine IF they have enough confirmed bookings AND if enough of these early buyers are prepared to wait. Personally, I'd be prepared to wait a couple of months, if that means I'll get a Jan-dispatched car, and considering waiting periods on pretty much all competitor models are as long or longer. BUT: the marketing must be kept on the boil through Nov-Dec, and they must efficiently chase down all enquiries and TD-requests. A pity though that the roads will not see too many/enough Avventuras till early next year. The car sure is capable of attracting and converting conquest buyers, on its own?!
