Guys, nobody here is bashing the Uno. It is just the fact that a car, very good in its times, may not be practical to own 10 years later. There are much newer hatchbacks (newer than the Uno) available at around the price the Uno might selling for.

Matter of choice.
I am going in for a used car and upon going through several posts in the forums and a lot of searching, have come down to some available options with respect to my Vitamin 'M'(Moolah upto 2L).
1) Uno diesel - 1998 45,000/-, Basic with a/c, 90,000kms run
2) Palio D - 2003 - ELX - 1,35,000/- 80,000kms run
3) Honda City 1999 - 1.3 - 1,00,000/- 70,000kms run
All the 3 cars condition is not good, i.e will have to spend another 15-20K on getting it right.
My running is around 700kms/month.
If I go for the city will have it modded externally with the remaining money.
What do you people think.
Are spares available for Uno & Palio.
I searched in various threads, but availability of spares was hard to find.
Please guide me.

The Uno is a good car. I used a petrol for 7 yrs and did a Lakh km on it. The only maintanance was the routine service. My friend has a Diesel. Spares are not an issue can be found quite easily. I agree that most of the critics are those who've never owned one. I still regret selling mine. It's still in use and has completed 2 Lakh km now. Not a single rattle. All the advice in this thread to stay away from the Uno is more applicable to the Ford Escort, Ikon and Opel Astra, Corsa. Try getting spares for these cars.

If you are doing 700 kms a month, just go for the Honda City. Nice, rev-happy sedan (even if its the 1.3) and spares should be available easier than the other two. Maintenance could be slightly expensive if you go to ASC, but its generally a reliable vehicle.
Second preference is the Palio but stay away from the Uno due to unavailability of spares.

What a car is this. Perfectly suited for Indian roads, superb suspension and excellent FIRE engine. And spacious too. It was really a great package.
I own this car since 1999 and have driven only 50,000 Kms. But its still in top notch condition. City driving is pleasure, v short turning is a boon.
Excellent car let down by FIAT. Its still doing good in Turkey, Brazil and Italy.

i reside in a moderate town where Uno Spares are easily procurable . But i agree people who love Fiat and passionate towards it wont be able to complain it.
Before you people were complaining " ...service is horrible , even though fiat vechiles are solid built". But i dont find the complained have stopped even after when the sales and service have been outsourced to those one Tata's.
I am amused to see people writing reviews of oh .. wow about vista qudrajet and swift vdi engine's while they complain about palio multijet engine .
to my knowledge even when compared to todays hatchbacks.. i dont think anyone can come near it on Road handling.. ( excuse me Fabia).
Hope this Solid Rock takes the world by storm again by 2011 thru its project 327.( An fusion between 500 and punto)
Some spy pics claimed to be shot in 2008 (???)

Stay away from it. What is the use of having a right contact to get the spares?. Spares should be readily available at the dealership. Even after so many years the spares are not even available in thirdparty market speaks for itself that you must stay away. I am not a compulsive baiter as i own a fiat linea myself. Just that this hassle is not worth the money you spend.
