    Welcome Hitesh and enjoy your stay.
    One little advice.. don't buy anything for its resale value, when you do that you become just a trader and not an owner. :wink:

    At first Hitesh welcome to TFI.

    Very well said Roy. Why are thinking about selling out car before buying it. Trust me FIAT has improved its after sales service. The spare parts are available at service sations. If they are not available you will get it within 2-3 days. Service advisors are very good and has good knowledge of the product. Dont worry, go ahead & enjoy your cars performance, ride & handling, & features you wont find in another hatch in India.

    Hitesh welcome to TFI.
    we dont build home considering resale value and a car could be another home but with wheels.
    there is nothing to be worried about if it is punto , as you are not alone.
    take care of it very well .
    you will be more than happy and confident to own it rather than sell it.
  5. Hi Hitesh, welcome to the forum.
    Congrats on your Punto. I am sure you will enjoy her and your service experience will be excellent.

    p.s : dont think of divorce before the marriage. I am referring to the thought of resale before even getting the car.

    thank you so much guys for the support...just get a lot of nagging abt the reasale value n service when i inquire abt the car....if it truly satisfies me then i then dont care abt the value....but im amazed to see so much emotion for this car and brand like no other on this forum and i adore it....will keep you guys updated...

    Awaiting for my red beast to arrive....till then happy new year.
  7. Congrats Hitesh on your new car. If you are still worried about the resale and servicing, I would say, it applies for all other brands as well. My dad has owned a Fiat, Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai, and he still says that Fiat gave him the least trouble. The service provided by the other brands was never satisfactory either. So, it all depends on how you handle your car.

    As far as the resale is concerned, owning a Fiat is not just owning a car, it is a relationship. And you do not look for benefit risk ratio in a relation ::T

    So forget all your concerns and just have fun with your new member of the family.

    First thing first, welcome to TFI hitesh. Do post ur einitial experiences in booking and dealer experiences in the relavant sections.

    Secondly, You mentioned about resale value, once you drive the beauty regularly, then think bout this. Im sure ull be soo hooked up, u wont let it go and will become a FIAT fan.

    Finally, even if u decide to sell, im sure u can easily find a FIAT Lover who'll be ready to take the beauty to its next journey.

    So, just njoy the car as long as u can and when that finishes, think bout the other things. Happy Driving.
