Hello naivedyan,

Does he mean the car will be transported by driving it from Pune, usually they are transported by a truck.
Also did you get the VIN and check for the details needed.
You can follow the regular PDI checklist however there are few things specific to FIAT that you might want to cover as well. I have updated the details in post # 512 on 16/02/2015 in the below link which has the details of the PDI done on my car.
Kindly let me know if you need any further assistance.

Hello naivedyan,

Well, I get the point and this would mostly be the right information from the dealer. A truck is dispatched only when they have a complete load available and no surprises that they would take time to complete the load. Also I can confirm that the VIN number is made available only at the time of loading of the car and I had similar experience. Once the truck is dispatched the cars would take 2 days to arrive and you can plan for a PDI the next day. Please do not give any approvals to the bank to disburse the loan or make any sort of payment (apart from the booking amount) to the dealership until you are satisfied with the PDI.
Sorry if it was posted earlier, may I know which car was booked. If it is a Punto then there is a good chance that they have stock already available and waiting for the capacity of the truck to complete before it is dispatched, if it is a Linea then a good possibility that the car might as well be in production.
Also may I know who is the dealer handling your booking.
Do let me know in case you need any assistance, you can PM me as well in case we need to talk.


Cheers,
pdma.

Hi pdma,
I got a chance to check a fiat linea multijet emotion model which is a September 2015 model and has 35 k.m on the odo. The dealer is giving about 80000 discount. I did a test drive and was impressed by the handling and braking. The car really pulls ahead around the 2000 rpm mark. However i heard there was an ECU remap which allows the turbo to kick in around 1200 rpm.
Are there any issues to be checked with a six month old car and what type of discounts one should expect. The salesperson gave a good account of the capabilities of the car by driving me around. I checked the VIN and it is a September 2015 model. I drive about 1000 k.m a month and would you advise to go for the T-jet. Discounts for the T-jet are around 35000 and so the top model would be around 11.3 on road. The dealer says Fiat is not bringing out active and dynamic models for the T-jet.

Not sure if this has been discussed anywhere else, if so sorry. How is it possible to check a car's variant? I mean the model like alpha, zeta for Maruti NEXA vehicles. Are these information stuck somewhere in the car. Now a days the manufacturer does not badge these. Or it is possible only by checking the features. Hope Iam clear.

Friends, I have done the PDI as per team bhp list for my new Hyundai i20 Elite, in dealer yard on Thursday. Full payment done.

Now the issue is , the Maharashtra PUNE RTO was closed from Thursday-Sunday last week( govt holidays). Today it opened and the SA of the dealer confirmed that, they have submitted the car details/papers to the RTO.

But...he said it will take 6-7 working days for RTO to give the number and till then he cannot deliver the car to me.

I have 2 doubts here :

- I understand , dealer can deliver the car in A/F status and I can keep it in my home parking. I am not very comfortable in keeping ca with dealer for so long since i feel they can use the car for other illegal purpose like test drive , or even trips ( with odo disconnected, not sure )

- Does RTO really takes so many days to generate a number and the dealer need to hold car delivery till then ?

Based on your responses , I will talk to the dealer again and push for delivery in a day or two.

Generally after the submission of the documents to the RTO, it takes 4-5 days to get the registration done and original receipt to be generated. If the dealer has received the complete payment for the car, I don't see any reason why the delivery should be delayed. And definitely not for the registration no which is received only after a week or so of registration. You need to talk to the dealer sternly and get the delivery ASAP. Not that the dealer should not be trusted for misuse at his yard, but for the condition the car would be till the time of delivery. Considering the present weather conditions, better to get the dealer park the allotted car in shade.
