Talking Buying a New 2004 Palio

During my last visit to Pune, i happened to visit the B.U Bhandari Showrrom.

However, I was pretty early and other than the security guards, there was no one to assist me.

I saw lots of new Fiat Palio(Both 1.2 and 1.6) in the showroom yard and just thought if it is actually possible to buy a brand new 2004/2005 Palio from here.

Firstly, is this possible and do companies offer any discount on such transactions?

Also, if I actually buy the car, will it be covered under regular warranty and if banks would finance the car?

Gurus, please give your comments and thoughts!!!

Hi Arnab. Is it the sheer fascination that you are looking for a such an old 'new' car that to a Palio which is selling less than 10 units per month in whole of India! See cars are made for running, not for remain idle at a corner of a stockyard for years. See each car component has a half life whether it is running or remain idle. If you are crazy about Fiat buy a brand new Punto, don't waste your hard earned money to an old Palio standing at the yard for such a long time.

I can bet my flesh that such an "old" new car, if you are able to find one, would have done a lot of duty as a test drive car, or as the showroom manager's/ worker's drive around car. If you are locked on on a Palio, why not look at used cars available outside, maybe from a BHPian, or a friend, or a reliable dealer?

Tough really to find such an old one. Although I doubt if any dealer would stock a 5 year old new car as you say.

Year end discounts mean they clear stock.

Hi All

Thanks a ton for the advice.
Was curious if this case would exist.
