    Atlast after several follow-ups and escalation steps :arghh:.
    The dealer confirmed that the car got billed in FiatSide and gave the VIN of the car.
    MCA11876G07066123HHZ (I guess August made, Minimal Grey).
    I have almost lost my energy to fight with them.
    They made me to change the color from Tuscan wine to Minimal Grey ...

    It took a month for my Linea here in BLR. But they kind kept me informed.

    Do a PDI. Wishing you many happy miles ahead.
    Please post some pics and delivery experience when you get a chance.

    Ha Ha. Welcome to Fiat's way of selling cars to its customer. I remember how much hardships I had to go through to get my RED last month. And follow up till the car is in your dealer's yard.

    Congrats! It happens with salesmen basically on the false commitments and hope you are in the verge seeing the vehicle and getting it at the earliest. The delay had happened and nothing could be done now. Now have a thorough PDI and don't carry the frustration during the inspection/delivery.

    Also, it would be good if you have the delivery with a positive mood (if possible) with the dealer. Reason being, you need to carry a good feel from the day you own the car.

    All the best. Happy ownership!

    Yeah. Definitely, I was bit frustrated. In fact my wife and father in law was not interested in buying fiat after all these mess.
    Moreover, we have only one FIAT dealer in Pondicherry, which put a Big question mark on After Sales Service(ASS).
    They have almost made me to Cancel the Order. Even dealer himself had processed the Cancellation.
    While giving the Cancellation refund check with interest amount also for three months delay, He requested me to wait for two more days to give the VIN, if not process the check for collection.
    However it was my fond towards the FIAT Car (especially the Build Quality) , which was not letting me to buy or even prefer other cars over FIAT.

    Now I am feeling much excited, and eagerly waiting for the delivery day.
    I am praying for no more delay in delivery process ... :)

    By the way I will definitely do thorough PDI before registration as you Guys suggested.
