Hi This is Balaji from Chennai. First and foremost i have to say i am awestruck to see a dedicated forum for a product which is touted to have a not so good after sales service. Great job friends! I have to say this forum has installed confidence in me to check for FIAT even after hearing lot of -ves from different people. I am planning to get a diesel car by October end and so was gathering info about various cars. My budget is between 6lacs-7lacs. I am now planning to go for a test drive of FIAT punto(75 PS) this weekend in Concorde Motors, chennai. Had spoke to the SA mr. Rafi and got the details. Currently the discount is worth 37K and so getting a Punto Emotion is well within my budget. Now to the main section, 1) I am as any other new FIAT buyer is carried away by the issues discussed online. Particularly in chennai, can any of the FIAT owners please let me know about the availability of spares,service and warranty claims. I am aware that I have to go to a TATA for service. But I heard from my colleagues who owned TATA that the one in the ECR is doing a fair job then the rest. Do they have the same treatment to FIAT? 2) Is the ground clearance a major concern. From the specs i see that punto has the ground clearance similar to a FIGO. I travel a more in city and might do a highway travel once in 2 months(might be more once i get the car ) . Can any of you please clear me on this aspect? I can understand I can make it clear myself during the test drive but still ambitious to know as i cannot wait for the next 2 days. 3) While booking a new FIAT car(particularly in chennai) what all should i be looking into?
