    I have booked Punto Emotion and the vehicle is in stockyard. Though I was given the impression that I am going to get a vehicle that was in transit at the time of booking, I doubt that and I think they are going to give me a vehicle already in stockyard.

    I got the VIN and it's a sep2012 make. I would like to ensure that the car is perfect and free of any flaws.

    I am going to do PDI on Monday after 1 in the afternoon. If anyone of you seniors can accompany me I will really appreciate it as I am not 100% sure of how far I can detect flaws if any. Will come to your place of choice and we can go to stockyard from there and will drop you at your place of choice. If Monday is not suitable for you we can do it on tuesday.

    You guys are the best.

    Hello Naveen,
    I booked it from Ambattur Concorde and the stockyard is at Poonamalle. The colour I chose was Exotic Red. Sep make is perfectly acceptable to me but giving the impression that I am getting a vehicle that's in transit and delivering a vehicle in stockyard makes me worried.

    There may be chances that someone might have cancelled the booking for which they now might have allocated that to you. Since it is manufactured in Sept'12, it is absolutely perfect and nothing to worry about. Just go there with the PDI checklist and do a thorough PDI. :)

    If that's the case I will be only too happy to take that. Hope someone did not cancel after the vehicle failed PDI!! Do you know a Mechanic or someone who can accompany me for PDI?
    I have heard of car consultants that people hire to check the worthiness of pre-owned cars, if you can refer someone or give me directions that will be great. (Man, I am so paranoid!)

    I will doing a PDI using the instructions from this thread

    If you do thorough PDI as per the checklist, that would suffice.

    during my enquiry stage (september) my car i was told that there is no Red Punto available in stock to check the colours. During booking I was told that there are 6 cars coming along with my car. there was another lot of cars came in a week later (along with Teky's friend tuscan wine). this is for your information.

    I wasnt heard of any cancellation till my delivery.

    can you tell me who is the dealer? i have taken from vst motors anna nagar, it was good.
    they will be in hurry while handing over all the documents, you keep calm and collect all the docs, and verify once again,
    check for extended warranty !! for me they told they will receive from fiat after 2 days, finally they gave one booklet called extended warranty.

    take your own time to do PDI.........
