    Though in the long run it will be good for Fiat and Tata to operate separately, at least from the sales point of view, I believe time is not yet ripe for such an arrangement. It will be in the best interests of both to continue to iron out differences, and run the joint venture. Fiat's target of 40,000 cars for this financial year now seems very optimistic. Even 25k would be an optimistic number in my opinion. Best bet at this juncture is to retain the relationship, and concentrate on increasing the sales with what is available, and then think about things when the time is right.

    Corporate decisions are not as easily done as we are discussing here. In my opinion FIAT needs TATA as much as TATA needs FIAT. If FIAT fails in India, TATA in no way would be benefited. In my opinion, the rift is there, but both companies would temporarily bridge it till a time when FIAT decides to get a divorce. I don't see it happening in coming decade.
  3. what about opel, triumph, peugeot, ralient robin(badal), Reliant Kitten(dolphin) Vanguard(standard 2000) i can give you lot of examples of beautiful cars were unsuccessful in India because of dealers and lack of tie up company support. luckily ford escaped from it. after the successful launch of ford IKON. till now ford launched only 6 models(cars) in India escort,ikon,mondeo,fusion, fiesta, and figo. fiesta and figo are newer models before it had only 4 models out of 4 all the 3 models were unsuccessful. ford is still in Indian market not because of anyone because of its successful model IKON, just like this, Palio is the successful model in India. fiat is in Indian market because of its successful model not TATA.

    "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." We will all be driving Marutis then. And the name of the forum would be changed to teamsuzuki.co.in. We would all learn to see (with awe) the advertisements about "kitna deti hai"! Oh, at least nobody would taunt us about lack of service centers and cheap quality interiors, then. :lol:

    @mclaren, You have yourself said many a time in these posts, that expressing our views on these forums make no difference and is almost a waste of time, but in this forum you have plenty of posts. Why waste your time ?

    Your profile says you are a Fiat enthusiast, but you drive a Baleno currently and are evaluating the Polo for the next buy and at the same time you talk a lot of negatives about fiat and its cars, Make yourself clear and post.

    Any JV will have growth pangs and teething issues. FIAT is just going thru it. The current products are good and really dont need a certificate from all and sundry.

    Blind love??? huh? Did not get/appreciate that comment. I am not too sure, but if there is a way to check out all posts to see what our forum contains in terms of whether we are talking/sharing issues with our cars and trying to find resolutions to these with other fellow members opinions and experiences or we are blindly praising a Fiat product. Me thinks its the former.

    My personal opinion - this comment is not in a very good taste.

    Cheers,
    Vroom

    Hi Abdul,
    We need constructive criticism which mclaren is providing with excellent and logical posts. Let's not discourage and let's not be personal. If a post can be argued using logical means, we must do so. There is a saying in Marathi that translates to "Your criticizer should be your neighbor" which I think has a lot wise advice in it. A person can be a fiat enthusiast even when he would not ultimately decide to buy a fiat product.

    Ramesh joshi,


    Do you call the above quote as constructive critisism or negative wishing / curse of a so called Fiat enthusisast ??

    Nothing personal ever from my side. It is just my observation about comments being aired in this forum. Such wishes send a false alarm which is uncalled for at this stage. Already TATA has clarified there is no substance to such rumours and all discussions are hypothetical going by the denial from the players
    Why send panic alarms among members. Already Royj has reacted to this discussion sadly.

    We are really the Fiat enthusiasts and the Fanboys. We feel the need to develop FIAT. That attitude comes out of passion. It is something I have in my head but cant paste it on this forum.
