    Hi All.

    Thanks to all who helped me in choosing Fiat ,those who had put on linea thread also in this tjet.

    Time Line - took more than 3 months not in hurry.

    Hunt for car story
    1.Ford Fiesta.
    2.Hyundai Verna
    3.Fiat Linea
    4.Honda City

    Previous car: Hyundai Santro

    T.d
    Ford Fiesta - Good in handling and driving position also A.C was good.But a little cramped at back.Also new 2011 fiesta is on the way which will
    be not good.

    Honda City - Good driving but was very low for my height and also after 120 dances in air.and felt like not strongly built.also having cycle tyres :0 fr the engine value.

    Hyundai verna - Superb car but new model didnt like.also cramped a little.

    Linea - Took T.d in chennai worst was the A/C and i was not even able to over take bus moving at 20 km and didnt have the peepy feel my santro had.Even the fiat said it has recalled punto and linea petrol cars for putting new a/c.not satisfied.untill Oct thought of buying linea.but in novemb in chennai the TD of Tjet came drived only once then i was asking linea emotion no way its the TJET.Dad said just book it and color was tuscan wine i also liked it and it exactly fits the car dimensions ,actually i was saving money and went for tjet but daddy said why go for tjet get high end which has all needed for luxury car. and thought its VFM.

    Decisions

    Every one said mileage will be good in honda city .I said put those cycle tyres in linea u will get more mileage than city.

    Now Tjet Story .


    Brought from VST Motors - chennai.
    - Worst Cust Service.
    - dont know any thing abt the car.
    - Even in my RC they gave as T.White for Tuscan whine. have given back to change :(
    - all this was bcoz of new bies . if we go inside to a little superior it goes good.
    - But one thing they dont stock like concorde motors they book after u book so u can expect new manufacture car.


    Was seeing only linea but finally decided to buy Tjet after TD.Also worried in linea regd a/c
    also was abt to select but my dad said why tjet buy high end its slight difference so Tjet Plus and color Tuscan Wine.

    First day Left door didnt open from inside.But i know this was due to the sunfilm guys which they didnt put latch on to the groove.this has happened in my santro too.i was unable to find the first net or else i wud have done that.then i found its inside the opening handle .we have to take cap using screw driver.
    Went to vst service after 3 days.they opened but were searching for wrong place for the problem then i itself went and said put the latch on groove.then it worked.:)

    Chennai - Trichy - Ramanathapuram - Sethu. total - 1110 + exiting 370 = now 1480

    Pros -
    - Sturdy body.
    - Good engine and best handling
    - inside city its 11 km .lt as per MID
    - Mileage as of now 15km / lit as per MID.Its ok at speed around 100 - 140
    and worst roads from trichy to sethu (210 + 210).With all AC
    - Best braking solution.and turning does as u say to the car.
    :steering :steering - Auto Ac - Uber cool . Where it comes handy is we can set the temp at 23 to 25 enough .
    bcoz in manual ac we have to switch off and on when it bcomes very chill but here no need keep playing with switches keep the temp it will take care.
    - Night time front lights are very good and bright.
    -

    Cons -
    - Bottom touches are there. also can blame indian worst road design.
    - Slight air sound from right door above 110.

  8. Congrats Vijay.
    Please post pictures before other TFIians pounce on you.

    Heard TJet now comes with Apollo Aceller Tyres and not the Goodyear's. What make is yours ?
    What about discounts and freebies ?

    Where did u get that information from bnzjon ??
  10. Went to Concorde today for a TJet test drive. Met Satya who took his BNW TJet car today.

    One of the Jet (not Satya's) had Acellere's in them. The sales guy was saying that some cars come with GY NCT5 and some with Acellere's.

    Dont know which of these tyres are better.
