    Why fiat palio, sienna and petra are not listed at time of registration on this site? I mean they are not classic in the real sense of the term yet ...

    People are still using them for daily commute including me ... Fiat Petra 1.6 with CNG BRC Sequential ...

    Felt the same in the beginning for a long time, therefore refrained from posting. But then the forum was already started for new age Fiats like Punto and Linea and now Avventura. Nonetheless you can post about the cars on specific sections of the forum. We do know that even if Fiat officially extended support for these cars, parts availability and labour that can tackle issues properly and troubleshooting of these cars was a mystery for most part; unless you can find some support on other Fiat forums, Indian and International.

    I mean infact in the profile all possible FIATS sold in India must have an entry ...

    Then it becomes TEAM FIAT ...

    Thats my suggestion ...

    And fiat makes available parts for Petra Palio etc. at authorized service stations also ... takes time as they sometimes import it from their master stock in Italy or Brazil ...

    There are Indian forums on FIAT which have more discussions on UNO, Palio, Siena, Petra. This one was specifically to entertain newer Fiats. That is not to ban Palio etc. from the forum. Therefore the lack of listing I guess. It wouldn't hurt I guess as per what you suggest. Or you could add that in your signature which will be visible in every post.

    Without feeling offended or bad, I would suggest that it is better to be on forums that deal more extensively on certain products as one can benefit from the vast expertise of people handling such earlier models. The knowledge and contacts of those members I am sure will definitely be of help to those using Palio, Petra, Siena..etc. While all Fiat owners are welcome on board Team fiat and to post their queries, I doubt one will get any worthwhile replies of opinion or guidance.

    Agreed mostly, but I feel at least for the registration and profile sake it should be listed. Because then if not listed it discourages people with those cars from coming onto this forum ... which is very useful to say the absolute least about TF ...

    Once a few people start coming, some experts will also start coming onto the forum ... especially some specialist fiat technicians consulting third party garages ... know a few of them ... they have kept a lot of fiats running on the road in immaculate condition with their customer service sometimes better than FIAT INDIA themselves ...
