    I got a vehicle (Linea MJD) that was delivered 7 months after it was manufactured. No issues at all. There are other fiats which are more than a year old when taken delivery(was also a TJET). Just do a proper PDI (before you make full payment) and then enjoy your car.

    Do a rigorous PDI and if everything is fine then go for it.
    5 month old is not something that should be a deal breaker. This is normal. On a faster moving Ford Figo, I got a 5 month old car -- July 2013 bought in December 2013. My T-Jet pre-face-lift was Jan 14 bought in April 14. Cars are designed to last a decade or more. So few months in stockyard or at plant won't do any harm.

    Thanks for all the inputs, I will make sure that I will do a strict PDI before taking delivery.

    Honda is a crappy car compared to fiat, Its a tin on wheels. you might find no faults in cities where the roads are not bad, but try driving a city on my coastal roads, you will break your back , hit the belly and dent your flimsy body panels. Fiat service was bad a couple of years back but now its much much better. Its a big pity that Indians look at only one thing in a car ' MILEAGE'. The recently launched Baleno is a bigger car than the swift but 100 kgs lighter. I took the baleno for a test drive and found the car very unstable at high speeds especially when a container truck zoomed by ,the whole car shook. The engineers of maruthi proudly advertise the cars weight at 900 kgs and a milage of 27 kms. When will we learn?
