    This is an article / query section from "The Hindu" newspaper Trivandrum edition.

    Just read the last lines about FIAT's service reputation. Even the person who was planning to buy FIAT will be in a Dilemma now.

    The answer is a positive one overall and the bit aboit the service is known to every potential buyer.

    In the answer the writer has said that the 'reputation' of the service is not so good, not that service as such is bad. Quite a difference betwee the two.

    What i find strange is that he has equated Hyundai's service rep with VW's. And thats not entirely true.

    Yes everywhere people are talking about the poor service of TASS and I guess that is the main factor why people are going for a second thought. Even those who asks me about punto never asks about the car, but they ask how is the service ? People know about Punto ..but service is also something we need to bother about. One thing I dont understand is as Gurjinder said how is VW /Skoda service better ? Is it true ?

    Yesterday someone had posted a new ownership thread and while talking about VW , he said 'the quality is unquestionable'
    Thats the image VW have in buyers minds.

    Skoda's spare part prices make Fiat prices look like a baragain on a sunday market.

    And we all know how the service charges escalated for the Octavias post a lakh km.

    VW's prices will not be below Fiat and thats for sure.

    I guess we've all lost sight of the topic.
    So lets try and get back.

    Polo 1.6 Petrol first service costs 10 grands!! I can only imagine the spare prices.

    As far as the reply is concerned, I am really happy to see an unbiased opinion on Punto. As a journalist, its his job to mention all the pros and cons and he did mention the only con in the most suited (read TRUTHFUL) manner.

    imagine fiat launches fiat 500 with twin air engine for 5.0 laks in india by end of this year.
    it would be a news ticker
    then it would tick almost all column in spec book . may it be looks or efficiency.

    its a huge opportunity for fiat this is the right time for such things.
