@ghodlur Difficult to disagree! But I will, somewhat: I have come to believe that Fiat owners and fans are some of the brand's biggest enemies, if often inadvertently. Too many of them/us have a sort of complex about owning a Fiat, or a reactive defence mechanism at any rate. The result is that often we over scrutinize/are over vigilant/nitpick/are too voluble. A lot of the ridiculously exaggerrated and distorted ideas about Fiats (everything from engine power to gearbox to rear space to service cost/quality to pricing) have their roots and their incitements in some Fiat owners' desire to 'distance themselves'/even bash the car/brand they admire. The result is that Fiats have to run the gauntlet of scrutiny, gossip and hearsay to a degree that would've left Maruti, Hyundai, Honda and Toyota weeping if only it were applied to them! It is defensive owners of Fiats who've perpetuated the expectation that a Fiat should have the handling of a Bmw, the build of a Volvo, the styling of a Maserati, the engines of a Ferrari, the ride of a Merc, the feature list of a Hyundai, the service quality and reliability of a Toyota....all at the price of a Tata! ;-) I exaggerate, but for rhetorical purposes only!
