Agree with Mdsaab. Out the 3 mentioned, Jazz should be the best option. Itís a great city car and space-wise, as good as a C-segment sedan (or even better).

(what if the showroom had a theft or fire?- would they not get in touch with him?). We had halted the car 1km from the showroom.
Eventually at my extremely firm persuasion (and annoyance and making ample noise) three guys from the showroom turned up at our car (I think they feared that I'd take it for a longer TD even if they protested). The Team Leader came on the TD with us. And gosh! His attitude. Almost felt I was traveling with the MD of Hyundai. Constantly on calls. Could hardly care less about the 'customer'. Was totally putting me off, but I tried to focus on what I was there for - the TD.
I was expecting Hyundai to handle this better. If this kind of a behavior was from a VW dealer, itís quite understandable because a year back they used to have occasional sales of a few Jettas and Passats, and maybe the surge in sales was too hot to handle. But Hyundai always have been a volume-seller, and they are expected to handle this in a much better way.

The sales chap was saying that they have some 25 odd TD a day! (gross exaggeration IMO). Being fair, one can imagine them being concerned about how to manage a lot of TD. But a simple solution from Hyundai could be to provide more TD vehicles. And the process of getting a longer TD seemed lengthier than the TD itself.

My bigger issue was with the attitude and sense of arrogance from the dealers (especially the Team Leader). The first one completely refusing a TD was very surprising too, as it would be highly unlikely that they would not be having a TD vehicle. My guess is that they would just not find it worth their time and attention, with the huge demand they are seeing.



- Sorry for this OT. Someone please guide me.

How to NOT show the title in the link?


If someone could reply here or PM me, it would be a help.

Previously Fiat was offering;
-One year Insurance.
-Basic Accessories.
-2 years extended warranty.
-50 month free Roadside Assistance.
free by paying Rs.5600 extra with every Punto(petrol or Diesel).
IMHO, rather than banking on these offers Fiat seriously needs to address on their AfSS first.

Nissan is also offering Huge offer on the Petrol Micra in the form of free Petrol worth Rs.52,000 for the use of 8 months & 0% Rate of Interest on Financed cases.
Also written at that place was that this scheme is applicable for 'Micra MY10' only. Can anybody tell what the latter means?

Can you tell me what they have offered by way of monthly special discount?
also with some of the new launches being midsized sedans with diesel engines. i am sure the manza would feel the heat and you would definately see some discounts in the offing.
Please give me your current discounts, then i will personally call up a local tata dealership and see what i can get. Will post the results thereafter.

This is absolutely true, much to my disappointment.. I got my Linea Tjet plus on 30th June and presto, this offer rolls in on the 1st of july.. Went to the dealer to get my number plates fitted and saw this banner today evening. Had I waited another day, I would have got fuel vouchers worth 14000 for a petrol linea. That's a good 4-5 full tanks of petrol.. Diesel lineas are given vouchers for 18k or so.

To add to this list you have mentioned, they are now offering an exchange bonus of 20k on any brand car, as opposed to last month's 10k, where I lost again

The "opportunity to get diesel linea for petrol linea price" offer is restricted to 1.4fire emotion pack petrol. As far as I know, its not valid on the Active and Dynamic petrol variants.

That's it for now, more tomorrow!
