I enquire for Abarth Punto but they said they are not taking any booking for the same.

From what I know, both Vecto and Aadhya would be closing down soon. No specific dates as yet.

I just don't understand this. With Jeep into the market, FCA is stronger than before in India. This is the primary reason I wanted to check about Abarth Punto. I hoped that Fiat showrooms and service centers will not shutdown. Fiat showrooms endured all these years with abysmal sales but with Jeep into market and they shutting down ? This will only create negativity towards Jeep brand. People will definitely hesitate to buy. Adding salt to the wound is that FCA want to sell a portion or majority of its brands (to Chinese).

Relax Mate,

There will be new dealers coming up and MOPAR service centres. If Abarth Punto is the need, you can check with KHT too.
If you reference is to the news about Great Wall motors wanting to buy Jeep, I think you missed the public statement issued by FCA confirming the news to be rumour / fake.

Cheers,
Pradeep.

I think you are reading too much between the lines . Relax. One dealer is not going to make or break FCA is India. It might be a dealer decision to not invest further in FCA in India. OR maybe They are closing this one and opening a Jeep showroom somewhere else. OR maybe there is some other reason. With KHT opening a showroom somewhere on Tumkur road, maybe there is not enough market for FCA to support another showroom (but after success of Compass this no longer holds true). Till we know the real reason, it's all speculation.

Hi all,

I own a 2012 Punto 90HP Diesel, run ~1.05L KMs. I recently moved to Old Airport Road and unfortunately all the Fiat service centers are now quite far for me! (Previously visited Vecto motors)
I visited the new KHT in Yeshwantapur recently for series of issues - Can read the summary here -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post4273686 ("My Car Won't Start" | What To Do)

Coming to the point, now that the car is out of warranty, I am finding Fiat service centers extremely expensive for visits. When they did not have a spare battery earthing cable, they fixed the existing wire with a workaround, which took about 30 min - the labor bill was INR 600!! I was quite shocked to hear this.

I would like to know if there are any reliable/non-exaggerating multi-brand service centers in and around Indiranagar/Domlur/Old Airport Road for regular servicing and also important works like clutch replacement etc. Any feedback anyone??

Happened to locate a center near my office called Laksh Service Center near PTP, Outer Ring road, Kadubeesanahalli. Quite good reviews on google but yet to visit. Also not able to find any reviews on teambhp. Any feedback anyone for this place??

My Fiat Linea is currently at 14800 Kms and I will be able to give it to first service at around 15800 Kms after a urgent long trip. Will that be an issue especially since it's the first service and I'll be getting it done in a different city. Can they quote this as a reason and deny warranty in the future?

Yes they can hold it against you. Normally service stations allow for anything between 200-300 KMs overrun.
Are you currently out without a FASS available where you are? Best is to speak to your service manager and inform him and have a work around arranged.

Yes, they can deny warranty if you overshoot the service interval. You can check the below thread,

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post3990390 (Fiat rejects warranty because of slightly overshooting service intervals. EDIT: Fiat agrees to help!)

If this is very urgent check with them before the travel.

Didn't want to take chances after reading your post. So dropped in at Sky Moto, Akurdi at 0430pm and 15108 kms and getting things done. They were courteous enough to accept and promised delivery in 2 hours. Waiting.

Found a Fiat Bravo probably imported and couple of Compass s waiting for service.
