Beige interiors were never offered on VTEC's. They were standard on 1.5's however, so do check that this is not a 1.5 with VTEC equipment.

Are you bonkers????? I wouldn't pay anything more than 4-4.25L for something like that even if it was in immaculate condition.

2002 1.5 is not worth more than 3.8-3.9L. forget that deal. it was too much of a make believe. find another genuine car.

The Adeventure is a great car. Very well built but you may want to check how Fiat service is in your hometown

karizma_devil - Your location says Bhubneshwar as well. If you are open to Kolkata regd. cars, theres an OHC VTEC with the Honda dealer here. They are asking 4.25 and I think it can be negotiated further. Infact I had my eyes on the car but can't afford her right now

Thumbs down

guys with a heavy heart i come back form the fiat showroom,no cars on display..and the fiat show room is about to be shut down !
more over i they dnt have a adventure on display or even a demo car..

had a lot of argument with mom..even test drove the IKON ..but i dnt like it..very stiff ride and cramped up interiors ( me being 6 feet athletic built)
i dnt have any options but to book the swift diesel VDi.
thats it nothing more to say.

Not a good start to a Fiat buying experience I guess. Its bad you didnt find an OHC I really wished that AT car was as good as it sounded. So have you booked the VDi yet?

na dippy.dude yet to decide on the colour.
am vry disappointed with fiat,because i suppose thats the only show room in the whole state !! i checked out the fiat india site but to no help.the showroom has just on palio thats it !!the sales man said he would try and get a adventure from kolkata for me to test drive it..but it would take some time,i was in no mood to buy his crap.i wish i could see the black thunder adventure.wish i had some more money would have bought a civic.
well i hope theres a miracle in next few days or else i have to live with a swift for few years atleast
