    Yes they need to be blamed for that, and also to allow a Showroom in a rather invisible place on main Highway which is/was towered by a busy flyover bang opposite to the showroom also filled by incompetent staff up until now. For someone genuinely willing like Pravin Perreira handling sales at Torrid, things remain challenging it seems for lack of showroom etc. in-spite of him being very proactive to make sales happen. So they now have a good sales person, but still challenged to deliver management, challenged it seems due to expensive real estate and really difficult return on investment of maintaining a prime showroom.
    The name Torrid makes it all the more easy for an angered customer to make it sound even more horrid (an experience). Only amplifies the agony. Name does not help.

    Balaji Thane is operational as Fiat service centre but not as FASS.

    Fiat don't understand that they need to play number game if they want to last long in India. Renault realised that lately now.

    Been there too. Not bad so much a place, but again take it or leave it sales staff. Not keep on making sales happen as happened in front of me with a friend. Who almost found it good enough to buy. Except they didn't seem bothered.

    Fiat India website lists the same workshop but not as TORRID but with the name of the new dealer opened up in Worli.
    Not sure if the staff remains the same.

    That workshop is rental place previously held by same owner of Torrid, Tornado, Torrent representing Nissan, VW and Fiat (not in that order). It could be possible the said place is being rented out to new owners Landmark Group.

    The other temporary showroom on Andheri Link road near Laxmi Estate now belongs to VW group.
