    It has been announced that Jeeps will be imported as complete CBUs initially and later they have plans of assembling in India if the response is good! It was not disclosed from where they will be imported.

    you are concentrating more on rumours and forgetting the official news ;)

    If it is a CBU import, why not it be a Chinese one? So the rumour may not be a rumour at this point... It is because China is nearby and Fiat have already have the Chrysler setup in China. So it is easy for them to manufacture it there. :rolleyes:

    What I feel that Fiat has always been either ahead of the time or before the time.

    Palio 1.6 was damn good driver's car but was launched way before the right time. IMO, if Fiat had launched it today, it would have done much better than earlier.

    Now every company is trying to offer something new, something unique and Fiat is focussing on cost factors (Which is not bad but imagine an average ndian buyer walking into Fiat's showroom and seeing only 2 cars). Instead Fiat should bring products which are unique, stylish yet affordable.

    Anonymous, Fiat is now concentrating on their new products too. The other manufacturers are just trying to satisfy the mass market, Fiat is trying to increase the number of enthusiasts. That is the difference.

    Rumor or not, going by the way manufacturing is getting moved to China, it wont be a surprise if automotive manufacturing also gets moved to China, especially considering the availability of cheap labor in china, leading to availability of parts at a cheaper rate, and the labor unrest in India(maruti example). We have to agree that China has already become a manufacturing hub of all kinds of products, and automotives not an exception.

    What I heard about the Chinese products is that they will have products in all quality. The price will vary over the quality.

    Quality depends on the buyer and not the seller. The final decision on acceptable quality always depends on how much the buyer is willing to compromise. And Chinese do make top quality stuff. :D

    Made in China or anywhere else, what you get depends on what you need. Even in china, cheap, low quality products and properly priced good quality products are sold, separately. It all depends on what you are looking for. Everything chinese cannot be called sub-standard or of poor quality. Just look at all the international electronic brands sold in India. Most of them are made in China. Are they all of poor quaity?
    In fact, many of the so-called cheap, chinese stuff sold in India are made in India not China!

    Actually for electronics it is recommended to buy if it is having the label "Made in Taiwan". I heard that a specific part of India is famous for manufacturing all the electronics that you cannot classify whether it is asli or nakli; that too with "Made in Japan" label... :lol
