I can definitely vouch for the fact that Fiat's gearbox is notchy/rubber whatever. And it does detract from the thrill. I had a Dzire DDIS , and boy did it have a sweet gearshift! On the other hand, Fiat's unit feels indestructible, and could perhaps be also employed on a T90 Main Battle Tank . We want everything from Fiat, as we do from VW, Honda, Toyota, MSIL and others. The difference is, their way of giving what we want and showing how they give, has won over the car buyer audience in India. Here people are not sure about Fiat. And neither is Fiat sure about Indian consumers.
