    This is more of being lazy to get the documents out and they would be worried if there are any issues with the PDI as such.

    @vinayk since the deal is for the Jan 2015 model, I guess you would not have too many options left. If you feel the issues you spotted are minor and can be rectified, get the dealer to fix it before registering the car in your name. If they oblige go ahead with the purchase.

    But the bottom line is, make sure you are convinced about the car before you proceed any further.

    Exactly such business tactics gives rise to suspicicon. Which could very easily be avoided by being open , transparent and back it with data, as per customer requests.

    Well I got a better deal on Emotion variant from them compared to other 2 dealers and also availability of this variant.

    Well my amount is in safe custody with the dealer, they cannot force me to buy crappy stuff, my uncle DGP is just a call away if the plan to get notorious :)

    If they are lazy they should not be in this business, wanted to get this taken care prior to registration in their interest. If the car has any issues after PDI - Simply it will be left at the dealership with a demand for new car or full refund. I have indicated this to them and well aware of me.

    May the force be with you (in case needed):smuggrin::smuggrin::smuggrin:

    I hope this is documented and communicated to the dealer.

    Hopefully this is close looped by FCA by tomorrow as I get possession of my New Linea on Fri and enjoy the drive along with a hassle free ownership :)

    @vinayk, I believe I saw the car in the yard today morning when I went to help another TFIan for the PDI. Do let us know how things go.

    Last night I wrote to Mr. Boparai. Issue is now being handled by Mr. Mangesh, Head Customer Service, FCA. He has assured to resolve it to my satisfaction.

    Thanks to Mr. Mangesh for personally looking into the PDI reports and certifying that the car is in perfect factory condition without any defect / repairs / issues whatsoever.

    He ensured all my concerns were addressed to my satisfaction.

    Getting the delivery of the car tomorrow evening :)
