    ^^ Oh... This Vellore thing could be great!

    @Amit Rox Fiat has never closed shop in Jammu since Uno days. They had the showroom/service center at the NH bye pass. Fiat's presence in Jammu has been continuous.

    @mangeshtendulkar did FIAT took any efforts to write a reply to your email about concern over closing of pandit ?
    or you got the usual copy paste email "we are looking into this !!" forever. which is typed in transperant font color..

    @dadasaheb nopes this time it was not as usual reply. Got response from Mangesh Kodalkar citing that being part of business, manufacturer has to bring in new dealership and terminate existing ones. However he has mentioned that FCA is taking steps to ensure that remaining 2 FASS would be empowered to provide best possible service to customers. Shall share the email content tonight. Good part is FCA is following the comments on TFI forum closely.

    Bull shit!!!!
    Terminate the best service center?

    And where are you bringing new dealership boss? Same city 3dealers as if your sales are crossing 10k per month.

    I think FCA must have earned millions of $$$ with the termination of pandit ASS as they are in desperate need of $$$ thats why they seems to be selling Mag. Mar.

    now I understood that to save Mag. Mar. in FCA's arm Pandit has to sacrifice !!!

    It seems the excellent performance by pandit ASS is considered very very bad from the FCA standards we can say.
    and for that pathetic performance shown by pandit they got terminated from the privilege of FCA alllowing them to run a FASS.

    doesn't this sounds like exact opposite from the maruti and its dealers management.
    no wonder this is the main reason behind MSIL and FCA at the opposite end of the sales chart. :banghead:

    ROFL..... :hilarious:

    This time FIAT has given different reason than their templatised reason so it would take time for them to neutralise that statement.
    Anyways, their is no point of discussing this as business decision is already made by both parties.

    Lets hope other two FASS present in Pune improve wherever required and provide satisfactory after sales support.

    He has to say what he has to say. He cannot say that I agree with you, the situation is alarming etc.. I have a feeling that PAndit wanted out. May be they are looking into somethng else ?
    BTW the one service location in Bavdhan which was convenient for Kothrud, Bavdhan, Baner, even Aundh is gone.

    agreed @acechip : I put up at Aundh, and even though, on paper the Bavdhan workshop was 10+ kms, it was an awesome drive that never took more than 20 minutes. Now will have to go to the city for routine service.

    Hey guys, I am new to this forum. Just signed up. I have booked a Punto Evo MJD in KHT Bangalore. After reading this thread I am worried now, Would I be left in the lurch after spending 8 lac on something. I know this happened Pune, but recently one in North East also shut. What's your thought guys ?
