I dont know why some guys are pouncing on me for asking a simple question, to the extent of not asking me to buy a Fiat. Drawing an analogy, Apple may have reinvented the smartphone, so does that mean people should be blind to the mapgate ?. And people who talk about it should not buy the iphone. Hope this forum sees both sides of the coin, so that more Fiat owners are created rather than dont talk about issues I am from Bangalore and have test driven Punto 90hp from prerana and liked it compared to other hatches , thats why am here.I have postponed my purchase a bit because of something in my career. The reason behind me asking this question is many of the previous Fiat owners in other forums have mentioned that they did not buy a Fiat again because of the spares issue faced earlier. Another thing is so far, Fiat completely stops selling a model when a new one is introduced. Good to see some of the brave hearts here who has bought Fiat again.So the message I guess is, if you love driving a Fiat dont think about the future, see it when it comes, you will find a way. Thanks for the guys who posted encouraging and sensible replies.
