    Hi guys,
    Yesterday my younger son was having a look on olx classifieds of fiat linea ( he himself is a fanatic of fiat cars ). While having a look, he just jumped out of the recliner and he showed me the ad. It was a 2011 fiat linea tjet plus with 32,000kms for sale at Rs.2,60,000/-. Then I checked the pics. They looked fab. But the price was too good to be true. Then while having a look it happened to be a dealer. I'm confused of what to do. Will possibly make a inspection this weekend. Here's the link :

    well, always a tough call to see pics and decide for a car's worth - that too considering if these are recent most pics!
    we've all known, sadly, that our cars don't yield great resale value as competition, so this could be true! :)
    could be our fellow Fiatian is moving out of town etc, or prefers a 3rd party (dealer here) to do the sale rather than take the trouble himself/herself.
    you're well versed with the brand, you could do a PDI equiv, a health check at FASS etc & if you can check ALL boxes then you can "make the move" - all the best!

    I have a doubt on this car as its too cheap , you may have a closer look at this car history and other things. Dont hurry buying this car. Investigate properly. I am worried because if you use car evalutaion its comes to 5L . If you still say fiat doesnt have a re-sale value , still it cannot be 50 % of the IDV. " PRICE NEGOTIABLE" dealer has mentioned . Roughly it would be 2.5L .

    Hi guys,
    just came to know that car has MH registration and hence selling it at low price. Had a chat with the dealer that he'll get the car for inspection at fiat showroom and if the deal goes right, then Mjet aur Tjet bhai-bhai and I'll be the proud owner the two beasts. Just dreaming about both of them in my garage and posing for the photoshoot.....:shame:

    In 2011, did TJet existed in India?
    I see that ad is no longer available to see.

    @Tornado - Yes, they were in production from late 2010 till first half of 2011.

    @csr1969 - Did you finalized the deal as the ad is no longer visible:D

    Guys,
    I missed the chance of owning this beauty. Recently, on the day I had a chat with the dealer, the deal did not finalise. So he said that he'll get it for inspection. But destiny had something else for me. On the same evening when I called him, he said that the vehicle is sold to the dealer friend at 2.5lacs and has paid a token advance. I was like o_O. Then I cut the phone call and said myself I'll get a linea tjet some day.

    This is probably a refurbished Demo car on sale... I suggest take a good look at the car before taking a decision. Take a mechanic with you...and ask him to check the car.
