We're spoilt for choice today. Either:

1. You could have refused delivery & waited for the right colour. The Duster is no hot seller anymore and Renault dealers are desperate for sales (especially since the Captur has bombed).

2. Gone to a competitor.

3. Chosen the 'other Duster' that looks like:

I was worried about my wife and our baby that we saw live during the scan.
But bringing home a 15 lakh rupee product that you won't be happy with will only aggravate the stress. Rent a self-drive car from Zoom Car, Myles etc. if the situation was so dire!

I still don't believe that anyone or anything forced you into taking delivery of a car you didn't want. You could have simply refused and waited a bit for the right 'green' colour, or gone for another car. Just the fact that you accepted delivery tells me there is simply no case here. This is a rare time that I'll side up with the manufacturer / dealer.

Forcing a customer to book urgently when an actual car may not be available (for whatever reason) is one of the oldest tricks in the dealer book. What usually follows is pressure to pay in full to 'block' car, which a lot of trusting customers fall prey to as they expect a level of integrity in return for handing over their hard-earned money. Once money changes hands, the customer has no real leverage, so exercising caution is well-advised, as is taking a third-party along who can provide an impartial view a justifiably excited buyer may overlook.

Others have already commented on the legal aspect of the case - or the lack of one - so I'll just say (and no offence intended), it's always best to leave oneself some buffer in big transactions that one cannot easily undo/let go, esp. when under emotional duress (concern for wife & baby's well-being in your case) so one doesn't get boxed into an unpleasant situation.

Can empathize with you, but you should probably account for the real possibility that nothing can be done now, and get on with enjoying your car. We all get asked for color choices, consider this your 2nd preference

Keeping emotions aside, what amount are we looking at as penalty offered by the court IF it rules in your favour? I am not sure but will it be more than a few thousand? You will probably waste more time and energy on this than that penalty amount. But I do understand that sometime our emotions get the better of us and in this case you have taken it upon yourself to teach these people a lesson. I sincerely wish you all the best in this endeavour and hopefully you can also club the Insurance fraud in your current case.

This aside, why don't you get your car wrapped or repainted to a colour of your choice if the you were so keen on a particular colour?

If this was already blocked by this dealer, I see no reason for them to sell to someone else (Unless someone influential wanted one urgently- Seems a little unlikely). I believe point 1 has more chances. It seems hard to believe that for a booking placed on 23rd, they would be able to get the car from the Chennai plant and deliver it to you on 28th. Especially considering 24th was a Sunday.

The sales activity is controlled by a cluster head kind of a person who mostly sits in Silk board showroom. I had an experience of his arrogance at the time of booking a Lodgy in 2016. I asked for 85PS RXE variant, initially, the Sales executive at Mysore Road denied having it in stock. After a few days, when I visited their Silk board outlet, I realised that it was available and this person had to approve for taking a booking. This dealer has a lot of cars in inventory and it is highly unlikely that car had to be brought from Chennai plant. Renault's statement clearly mentions malpractice at dealer place, are they looking for a new dealership in Bangalore?

This is not unusual, these things happen. Anyway you have accepted the delivery, so not much can be done I guess.

Repainting or full vinyl wraps are the only options left.

Actually this is the case. During one of the discussion with the sales executive of the showroom, she told me that there was no Green Duster in the yard itself when her associate took the booking and confirmed the delivery date.

Yeah, we became parents recently and we nick named him Turbo . I am not upset about the car, but I am a bit angry with these so called MBA sales guys. Because of them I was about to fail as a husband and as a father.

I prayed to court for exchanging the Orange Duster with a Green one, and to transfer the extra accessories I got fitted in the Orange Duster to the Green Duster (Momo Alloys, Rear View camera with display and Leather seat cover)

Thanks for your best wishes, I am also not sure if I can club the insurance fraud together as it is not mentioned in the original case I filed. I don't want to teach anyone a lesson, I just want the car I booked and paid for. And if I fail to get that, I'll at-least get a lesson.

Don't want to get the car repainted because of 3 reasons:
  1. It was not my fault that I get Orange Duster instead of Green Duster
  2. Changing colour of a car is illegal unless it is approved by the RTO
  3. AFAIK, painting is done in the very initial phase of the assembly line, and repainting new car will be patchy.

You got it right, else how can they deliver the Orange Duster within 2 days. They want customer to pay the money and buy the car based on dealer's choice.

It’s not that uncommon that your first colour choice is not available and you settle for second best or just wait. The dealer gave you both these options, so I don’t get what you hope to achieve with your court case. Are you seriously expecting them to replace a perfectly good car that you took possession of and used?
Am really surprised the judge didn’t throw the case out.

Look- am not unsympathetic...I had booked a Terra Beige VW Vento myself but after nearly 4 months of waiting when the dealer told me that my choice of colour would not be available for some more time, I quickly changed my option to White, which was immediately available. I love my car regardless of its colour. Am sure you can learn to as well.

Default Renault shows its true colours: I wanted a green Duster, but ended up with an...

You asked for a green,did not get one, you asked for any other colour,they offered orange and you accepted and have been driving around. End of story.

I guess you should just forget about it and enjoy the car. I have waited for 3 months for the colour choice. In the meanwhile the dealer kept offering all other possible colours including a newly introduced colour for which I kept declining.

Probably your personal circumstances led to bad decision making during the purchase. Shit happens and we move on. The dealers have multiple issues. Unless they block a Vin they really cannot be assured that they will get a car that is in factory stock.

Renault JP Nagar is not owned by Trident. I have visited this showroom and there is no mention of Trident anywhere.

Also if you are not enjoying the colour, just spend a little more and wrap it green. Just withdraw the case. It is only going to take more of your time and peace away. Enjoy you car and enjoy the arrival of your child. Cheers.

See this link, this group has a long history of cheating customers from the time of Hyundai dealership. The biggest reason for Renault losing sales in Bangalore is this dealership, they don't have any ethics and can go to any extent to impose things on buyers. The work culture is same in all their dealerships irrespective of brands.

To be honest it should be, "How not to rush oneself into buying a car.".

Come on man, as many have already detailed enough, I also can't find reason with this case at all.

If the car is reliable, why not enjoy it and make peace with the colour?

FYI, I've changed dealers because my choice of car variant or colour was not available. Easy peasy.

Now that you have the car, PetaWatt, odds are you're going to have to live with it. How about making your car look better? Start off with:

1. Blackened roof
2. Blackened rims
3. Nicer number-plate
4. De-chroming it

Orange isn't a bad colour. Posting pics for inspiration (not that I like all of these visual mods):

Instead of approaching the court after getting delivery, you should have cancelled the booking and if they don't refund the amount get it sorted through court. And book Breeza and get it delivered in 4-5 days, as simple as that

You had other options which YOU didn't pick.
- Cancel the booking & go ahead with other brand / model / color
- Get a self drive rented car until the situation is settled
- Get another used car which doesn't depreciate much, use it till the new car arrives and then sell it
- If you had already paid the full amount to dealer, ask them to get the green color car ASAP and till then get a loaner car

There is no point in blaming others for your act

You were committed a free (comprehensive) insurance and you were provided. In case if the customer was invoiced for a higher amount but the actual insurance premium is different, then it is a valid case and illegal too.

Why didn't you insist in getting the VIN number written on the manual receipt?
System generated receipt with VIN is equivalent to vehicle allotment. If dealer is aware about the stock at Chennai, getting the VIN detail is not something impossible.

Sorry for being bit harsh and blaming you, but that's the fact.

IMO and understanding,
1) Vehicle is already registered, so no replacement possible. You may argue that the dealer committed to get an green duster registered in you name but gave something else without your knowledge. It's again your mistake. You should have verified the documents before registration. If you have signed blank documents, you know it's your fault again.
2) Get it sorted out with the dealer (through Renault, if required) for a mutual compensation on additional accessories / VAS / service or gift coupons. Nothing much can be done
3) Just forget the incident and enjoy driving the new machine with your new family member. There is no point in running for this case. Lesson is already learned, make use of it for the future.

Happy driving.

Haha - this is a classic case of having your cake and eating it too.

This is the oldest trick in the book. @noopster and a few others have given their own experiences; so is the case of mine - did a booking for blue color Vento; was promised one in 3 months; black and others were available on immediate basis. Around 3rd month got to know through a friend (in VW) that a blue vento was dispatched from the factory for my booking period the blue, but then it suddenly disappeared. Later got to know that it was sold to another customer. Made a lot of noise and then was allocated a new one a few weeks later. Did I have a case to fight in the court? Maybe; but who will take the effort.

The outcome of your court case would be educational for a lot of folks on the forum; so please do share the updates as it comes. However as rightly pointed out by many; you don't have a very stable base to fight for.

Anyone can get confused, but it is owned by Trident. This is exactly my point. As a customer, I'll see "Renault" and get the confidence that it is Renault's showroom and won't expect any false promise.

Its more kind of "Not knowing the law is not an excuse to break it", but then law is well documented and anyone can have access on it.

Let's twist the story a bit to fit it in the current case scenario. Doctor commits to start the surgery within 5 mins and assures me that the patient will be saved. After, 4 mins I found doctor drove home for lunch. I ask hospital management for another doctor, and hospital management says there is no other doctor available. The poor soul passes away.

Whom should I blame?

Please don't be sorry, I am here to get different views and thinking of unbiased people, and it you feel I have to be blamed that's totally ok with me.

Thanks for sharing your opinion and understanding, I am learning from all these comments/suggestions I am getting here.

There is at-least one lesson remaining that only court can teach me.

I don't know much about the dealer, but Renault seems to be new to this? When I did the search for the cases against Renault, I couldn't find a single. I searched cases only in the jurisdiction I have filed my case. Finding the cases across the India would be difficult as if value of item is less than 20L then case need to filed in the district forum, and there are a lot of them.
