    If its mar made, the car must be with dealer from long time.
    Did you do the PDI on car. Its very important.

    If you are not confident, don't take it. Try with other dealers in your city.

    Hi Santhu, yes petrol Punto are a bit slow moving here in Punjab region for sure. Don't know about your area. 19/20 Punto are diesel ones here.
    Personally, I would have refused to take a March 2011 made Punto in Aug 2011.

    if car is in good condition, no rust no scratches , damn sure its brand new factory condition then no problem to buy it.
    you can also ask for discounts :)

    In my opinion its better to stay away from an old vehicle. Try with another dealer and before booking ask for the month of manufacture so that you do not have to go through this ordeal again.

    By the way, did you opt for the diesel for petrol scheme. One of the clauses in the scheme states that the booking cannot be cancelled

    From which city are you?
    Booking can't mean they can force you old car, but before that do the inspection of the car, as per PDI checklist, and see if everything is fine.
    Or ask dealer to give you new car.

    Fellow member ramjn is also considering to move his booking to another dealer. You can consult him on this clause in the diesel for petrol scheme

  10. even if you get a new car from the factory you will be eligible for the offer.
    better get a new car from a fresh batch than march!!
    use the PDI checklist if you finalise this car itself.
    plus it might be of some help if you can take any TFI member for the PDI
