    From Vecto Motors. As I am a Fiat user from almost 10 years and I know people in Vecto(due to Prerana) they are friendly and helpful. I have no issues with Prerana until now.

    Hi Team,

    I am a bit concerned with the behavior of Vecto Motors, Bangalore. I have booked a Punto Dynamic MJD at Vecto Motors on 12th October’13 and performed the PDI. I was accompanied by couple of friends who are Team-BHP-ians on Saturday, 9th November’13 and while checking the engine number (0360110) and the VIN (MCA118B5E07045936AKZ)
    we found out that the engine was manufactured in 2012 and the car was assembled on January’13.

    I went around the car and was bit surprised to find the below:
    1. Cobwebs on the front wheel caps and inside below the front passenger seat.
    2. The plastics that cover the C and D pillar on the inside had faded spots.
    3. We tried everything but the rear seat was not latching itself on to the lock.
    4. The rubber sill flaps on the rear doors had atleast an inch gap.
    5. The seatbelt caps on both the front seats were falling apart.
    6. The RHS beading next to the OVRM were displaced as if it were tampered.

    I was promised by the sales person that I will allotted a car assembled in June’13. I was surprised and when confronted with the sales person, what he had to say was that Vecto Motors received this car in June’13, which was rolled out from the factory on Jan’13.
    Now, I expect a 10 months depreciation value as a discount. Once the vehicle is registered with the RTO in my name, I have to take the brunt of the depreciation of 10 months(almost a year old car from Vecto Motors), even though I am buying it on Nov'13.
    Has there been any similar events recorded with Vecto Motors yet or is it the “Fiat India few old habits die hard!”.
    Please advise.!
