    @Sagar Sawant - h67 means it isn't a TD vehicle. Minor scratches can come if vehicle is in yard and isn't cleaned properly. They all will go after a good detailing session. Do a thorough pdi. Check for rust or some paint mismatch.

    Which dealership is this? And OB Linea still makes me weak in knees. It looks so majestic.:nailbiting:

    H will remain with a new car until 199 kms (199H). And then it goes off at 200 km on the ODO.

    Never ask for a repaint. It will not match the factory levels. There might be light scratches. A good wash + detailing session at car care outlets will get rid of all light scratches.

    H67 seems to be fine. Since the dealership is in Pune, It will not be put in transport, but good chance it will be driven from factory(Ranjangoan) to showroom in Pune.

    Sagar, please can you post more elaborate response/s. Please avoid chat client type messaging. :)

    So what happens now, what is the status there. What are your further apprehensions if any?

    Since Fiat is offering the 5 year extended warranty I don't think you will be having any trouble. There are lots of happy customers of FIAT. If you follow scheduled maintenance then there is no chance of trouble. This applies for all the car makers, but they are not keeping their promise which FIAT does.

    Just a heads up H67 doesn't mean the car has run only 67 kms , if the speedo is disconnected the odo won't tick. I know this as I happened to test drive a new Fiat with the speedo disconnected. However you may want to check other signs of usage like colour of engine oil vs a new Fiat multijet, that should give a more accurate representation of the condition. Also check carefully for differences in paint shades. You should insist on changing all fluids engine oil,coolant,brake oil, Hyd PS fluids etc (similar to what might be recommended in 1 yr service as per booklet) .
