  1. Hi All,

    I am Prabu, one more fan to the large FIAT family worldwide, and a proud owner of Linea 2012 Emotion. I am greatly thankful to Team Fiat India for their valuable posts, which i had been going through ever since i had thought of buying this car .

    I wanted to write a big post, will be writing it soon rather, I had no intentions of buying a new car, my friend wanted to buy a car a hatch and we were looking at all available options. One fine afternoon we went to VST Motors at Anna Nagar, my friend was looking at Punto when i asked for a TD they told me only Linea was available at the moment. The sales person though knowing clearly it was not our lookout gave us a TD and my friend didn't have license and i have to do the TD, drove few kilometers and thats it i fell for it.

    My aging Wagon R which is to be four years old shortly, my first car, which i earned, was giving enough trip to service stations and strain to the wallet. So it was a time to take a call and next week i enquired all similar contenders on the segment though my heart was with Linea. Once i took the dad and mom for the TD they too liked Linea than SX4 which was closely in line. With the offers i had at that time. I was running between dealers. VST, Concorde and Tafe Reach. With poor ratings TAFE Reach which gave the best of offers, I kept telling them reviews are bad about you, take a chance to prove them they are bad and they did it. I will write about this separately shortly.

    Finally i booked my vehicle on 24th Feb 2011 and took delivery on 22nd March 2012. Had Active in mind. My Wagon R fetched me better price with them and pushed myself to Emotion my close pal pressured me to do so. I definitely have to thank him :) Did an elaborative PDI for two hours with the list available at every point dealer exceeded my expectations ( may be i had low expectations seeing the reviews ) and i am thoroughly enjoying every km of the new vehicle.

    The vehicle has its own small niggles, nevertheless i enjoy the vehicle. I am now used to getting stares in signal. Looking forward to take it for 3M soon.

    Hoping to see you all soon in next Chennai meet.

    Will follow the thread with photographs shortly.

    Thanks Tony, Yeah rightly said. I was in RTO waiting for my vehicles registration. Driver who drives FIAT vehicles to the RTO told me. Sir " Fiat does not need to sell itself unlike other cars. People who know FIAT will love FIAT and will not settle anything other than FIAT" though i felt it true. I definitely agree with you . FIAT should be more aggressive in Indian market.
