I've paid the booking amount for the Punto at Pandit Motors in Pune. I got a call today to make the final payment. I requested the PDI but I was told that they would have to finish the billing and pay whatever octroi charges to bring the car from their stockyard to the showroom prior to me seeing the car. I was under the impression that the PDI would be done prior to final payment. Am I mistaken? If I do make the final payment, am I committed to this car regardless of any defects it might come with? I remember reading a post somewhere about how the VIN carries info on the manufacturing date of the car. I have been unable to find that post again. If someone could help me out by posting the link here, that would be great. I have read through enough posts on this forum so I have a pretty good idea of what to keep in mind with respect to buying the car. A big Thank You to all for creating and maintaining this forum so that first car buyers like me have a knowledge bank to count upon.
