    i will suggest not to take delivery unless all the issues fixed. (if this car is not registered at RTO then ask for replacement)
    is this your first PDI or you have done the first PDI before registration ?

    I am thinking that does there exists any QA department for FIAT cars at the plant or not ? just curious :)
    there are many quality issues reported on our forum nowadays.

    it is good thing that this is your first PDI and car is not registered yet, if the issues are not fixed to your satisfaction then ask for another car even if your delivery is postponed.
    till that time do not give your nod for the registration of car.

    if you are worried that much about this car,why dont you go for another car ? may be one more week to get delivery. Der aayein durusth aayein (Better late than ever)

    Yes,till now my dad has not signed the rto form,that means cars not registered right??and yes will go tomorrow again if issues persist then will definitely not take this car,but I don't know how cone they not check the car at the company,at least mechanical things they should check first hand only.

    Yes @ganges,will go tommorow again and if the issue persists,then will ask for another car.but you know I was waiting for this car from a long time,but will hold myself back .

    Be sure there indeed is 'left-side pulling': it may just be the hydraulic steering feel on roads, like most, that are slightly cambered to the left. As discussed in the other thread @Aviral singh.

    Don't be paranoid!: get the glitches removed, that's what PDI is for...though the dealer should've sorted most of this out earlier. Cars are driven in the factory, on to trucks, off trucks, to yards, from yard to dealer etc...H43 kms is perfectly fine! You've got an awesome deal on this 90 hp car: get the glitches sorted out and go! If they aren't, then insist on another car.

    cheers

    No its not the camber of the road ,its totally alugnement issue,the steering itself was not in the centre,it was towards left already .a bit turned towards left ,and its a alignment issue,let's see tommorow its fixed or not.

    @Aviral singh The Alignment thing: you should IN ANY CASE get wheel balancing, alignment and even rotation done from a specialist shop outside on any new car. Watch out for whether the issue is the Apollo tyres, as reported by another TFi-an, rather than alignment or balance per se. Even if it isn't perfect: it will be, once you get it done at a specialist shop, or you trade these tyres for a different model and make (if they are the issue).

    cheers
