ACC - Felt like sometimes it is throwing hot air to maintain the temperature.
Missing reverse gear lock feature ,,,, it is such a nice feature in palio.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post2769269 (Fiat Linea T-Jet : Test Drive & Review)
Its already posted on T-Jet review page. Its true and I feel this is the perfect time to buy the T-Jet. When I bought mine, the deal was exactly the same but Ex-bonus was 40K, now Fiat has increased it to 1Lac. Tell me what more do we want. All I can say is that Fiat is matching step by step the resale price of T-Jet by increasing the discounts.
As regards indicators stalk on LHS, ACC (It throws warm air from middle vents and cold from corner ones just for maintaining temp and let fresh air in for small time after a fixed time gap, absolutely nothing wrong in that), they are very petty issues not worth bothering and you will get used to them in max 15 minutes of drive.
As regards exchanging the old Palio, I would recommend you to keep it only if you don't have parking issues. You can very well buy a used 10-15K car (Uno or 800) and exchange it to get 1Lac bonus.
Remember No car is perfect and one can't get ALL the features in a single car, same as mobiles, but at the same time, this car scores very high in features, driving dynamics parameters and now its more than VFM too.

Isnt it a steal?
It is an absolute steal in my opinion. There are 4 Linea T-Jets in the classifieds section of this forum and all are priced higher than what you'll end up paying for a brand new one. Remember, you won't get that kind of resale value for your Palio in the open market as there are hardly any takers for it.

Are you serious?? 6 lacs on the road for a new T-Jet+ ?? Man, I paid 11.2 lacs of hard earned money last June

Jokes apart, how old is this car and how on earth are they pricing it so low? Agreed they are clearing stocks but pricing close to 50% of the original on-road value sounds a bit strange. As far as I knew, the current T-Jet was going with 2.3 lacs discount. Is this 4L offer a Fiat offer or a dealer specific offer that they are giving for a particular car?

If everything is in the clear, grab it asap. Keep the Palio 1.6 too. You ain't getting another hot hatch in India like that, at least for the next few years

Reverse gear lock feature? I actually find it obtrusive if I need to lift up the knob to engage R every time. Once people are used to driving, they would hardly slot into reverse accidentally. I've never found this feature appealing or useful in that sense. I think even the older Optra 1.6 had this feature.

The headlight/indicator stalk on the left is a bit confusing, but I've got used to it now. In fact, when I have to drive the Swift sometimes, I mix up the knobs on that one since the Swift has it on the right side stalk. I end up using the left knob and the wiper comes on *lol*

Saw an advt in PrajaVani (Kannada Newspaper) I think on 14/5 or 15/5. FIAT is offering a whopping 2.5lakhs off (including exchange bonus, cash discount) on Linea TJET.

Linea TJET never took-off and will never in india becasue of the perception the FIAT had. It already went the S10/GTX way..

Feel very bad for this competant vehicle...

These cars have must be more than a year old with full of rust, dead battery and hardened tyres. Considering Fiat, it could be a risky pruchase.

Don't see such advertisements in Bangalore.

Last week I was checking with dealers on 1 lakh discount on Polo/Vento. Surprisingly none of them had stock (or may be trying to push 2012 stock)

Brother-in-law's City CE is scheduled for delivery this week. Noticed in the revised price list a shocking increase in ext warranty and rsa since booking in Feb. Ext warrant cost has doubled from 3k to 6k. RSA has shot up from 1.5k to 4k. Similar increase for Jazz and Brio as well.

Of course...when they reduced the price across the variants, someone needed to pay, right? If I remember correctly, RSA was offered for free a year back?

And do dealers still have this CE variant in stock? Last I heard, they try their best to make you book the higher variant, saying it takes months to get the CE delivered.

As per ET, after petrol price hike, Maruti, Tata and Hyundai have announced discounts.
Petrol price hike: Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors, Hyundai Motor offer upto Rs 50,000 discount on petrol cars - The Economic Times

However, as I remember Alto already had a discount of Rs. 30000 from December onward.
Is there an additional discount offered now?

Mag -

Please check the OTR prices @ Carwale, this site is very very accurate on the pricing and specs part, here is the link -

No clue on the discounts though, probably you'll have to pitch in dealers against each other for maximum discounts.

Thanks Torq. I am aware about carwale price check option and have tried it also. But you don't get the actual on road price i.e. with discounts offered by dealers.

Discount on WagonR is 27000 in Pune. There is an additional corporate discount and petrol price hike compensation (Rs. 2400).
In all, the total discount is Rs. 30000 without any exchange.
