    Mangesh is aware of everything since 31st March.


    It is sad to see how FIAT treats its customers. No wonder that the sales figures dropped over the years.


    Yes, I will definitely do that if it is not resolved by today.


    FIAT has remained super-silent all of the time. They have not commented on anything since they are aware of the huge legal consequences of the fraud.

    Write a strong letter to Fiat about all this. Take your refund. In the letter kindly mention that you would not buy any Fiat car and also will not recommend anyone to buy a Fiat car ever. Dealer did a fraud and Fiat clearly has no hold on its dealers today. They are on a titanic.

    I wrote everything to Mangesh and even Kevin Flynn.

    From my experience, they are not bothered about customers. If they cared, these should not have happened in the first place.

    Further, interest is being still charged by the bank even as I write this post (since march 11th) and FIAT offered me accessories for a new car worth of the interest amount! :banghead::banghead:

    No wonder their sales figures have been decreasing day by day.

    @Soumik , for this reason I did not wanted to loose time on booking. I paid the amount and then got the car in hand. I was lucky that they had the red Avvy in in stock with Austin.

    But then , I was supposed to go to Garodia tomorrow for a free service camp and car wash after my 2450 km Bhutan trip.

    But now , the whole story have put me in the back foot.

    Feeling like having the car wash from Austin or from a local car washer.

    The issue is not about the money actually. :)

    If they gave me a new car then I would not have ended up paying the interest for nothing. So all these happened because of their fraud.

    @Subhendusc,

    It is your choice where you want to service your car. I stay just beside Garodia's workshop. I have been dealing with them since 2012, when the workshop was just setup.

    Expert Advice: Certain things in life appear sweeter than they actually are. Good behavior does not necessarily equate to actual good service being done to your car.
    You won't realize it when your car is new, however things will be clearer when your car gets old.

    Anyway, good luck! :happy:

    How many days did your Bhutan trip last for?

    This is a good gesture by Fiat. Check how VAG group is treating its customers.

    ^^ comparing this with your first image attached
    If it's due to that overlap of paint kinda thing, then let me tell u it's normal.
    Mine is not at all repainted or touched up.

    Just my two cents.
    :)
