    I recently called fiat customer care,to enquire about the offers ,and was shocked to know that ,there is a rs 10000 cash back cheque offer +free insurance worth rs 25000,now the sales person is saying I have to pay extra for zero dep.insurance,I mean the insurance alone must cost around 20,000 Max for zero dep,I don't know much just a idea,but then why should I pay extra ,I am thinking of doing straight calculation.ie.on road price =ex showroom+rto+logistics.,suggest what to do?Dealers are really trying to make fool of customers,and when a informed customer is.(me;))(thanks to team fiat for enlightening me,and all the replies from all the members),they are saying that relation should also be nice with the dealer ,as if he was trying to say,that I should pay extra ,or afterwards I will suffer .moral of the story=they just want us to pay blindly,without doing any research.

    You can take insurance from outside. If Dealer is not giving better quotes and not helping with all information, buying from outside is better option.

    Aviral, The december scheme is 10,000 gift cheque + free insurance. Generally this is a standard insurance at an inflated cost, and not a zero dep insurance, which should cost extra. Since the insurance is free, I would suggest negotiating the value and taking it, you can also negotiate on zero dep.

    Not sure how much additional cost. There is a thread in the forum which discusses these cost. Just see the thread titled something like "insurance for fiat cars".

    Hi @Aviral singh, ask the SA for the insurance premium cost which is they are offering to you in the free insurance scheme.
    Once you got the figures ask him to give you that discount as you want to buy zero dep insurance from out side. If the dealer is giving you general insurance with inflated rate you can get the opportunity to grab a extra discount & easily you can use that discount for zero dep insurance.

    You don't want a normal insurance at any cost, esp. not at this stage. The cost of components big and small usually is much more than the premium difference for a zero dep. Buy it from any company that offers better discount. I would suggest you to do what @rishike007 mentioned. But never a non zero-dep. policy. Consider the premium of a zero dep. as part of the TCO of car.

    @Aviral singh you can buy 90hp anyday if you have the dough.. :) However, you might want to express your dismay more strongly to the dealer and tell them such laxity will not be tolerated later.
