Hi I was about to book an Avventura Emotion, but got to know that the prices have been increased by Fiat a couple days ago. After taking into account the corresponding increase in road-tax, insurance, etc, the on-the-road price increment is turning to be around 40-50k. Upon talking to the dealers, got to know that one of the dealers still has one Emotion-trim car already available in their stockyard, and they can provide it to me at the older price if I buy it immediately. If I get any other vehicle (colour, trim, etc) that has to be ordered from Fiat, the invoice has to be of the new increased price. I've told them that I'll buy it in a couple of days and they've agreed to block it for me till then. They told that this car is January-2015 manufactured, which I confirmed by last 3 characters in the VIN No : 'AHZ'. The odo reading was also fine, with the 'H' mark present : H-11 KM. But it has been lying in their stockyard for 2-3 months now. I went to the showroom to make the booking today, but then decided to take a look at the vehicle first, which required an unplanned trip to their 6 km away stockyard. What I saw there made me a bit uneasy. The car was lying there in open-air, under direct-sunlight, eating dust. The windscreen was not covered either, so sunlight was also heating the insides, the dashboard, etc making it really hot. Some of the dust made its way onto the dashboard, central console, inside AC vents, and the interiors as well. These days, Bangalore gets quite hot, with temperature reaching 37-38 deg C in afternoon hours. Plus, it often rains in the evenings, varying from drizzling to pouring. The car has been parked in this condition for at least 2 months, if not more. They said they received the vehicle on March 23. Now, to be fair, this was not the only car which was parked in the open, as there were few other cars parked next to it. Some with their interiors still wrapped in plastic, implying they were new too. It is probably not fair to expect them to keep dozens of vehicles under some roof or shelter. They did keep the battery terminals in the car detached, so that was good. So, my confusion is that should I be worried about the condition of this car? Do the tyres get damaged if they are left lying in the same position under direct sun for months? What about the paint, which has to endure all that heat and rain? And what about the engine internals, with stagnant fluids, fuel, etc? Any possibility of rodents, insects messing up the wiring, etc? I've asked them to clean the car, so that I can do a PDI again before confirming the purchase. Are my concerns valid and should I skip this one and go for a newly ordered vehicle, by taking a hit of 50k more? Even if a new vehicle is ordered from Fiat now, it's entirely possible that that vehicle is also Jan-Feb manufactured and is kept under the similar conditions in factory till it's sent off to the dealer. I need to make my decision in a day. Your opinions?
