I heard Pandit Auto will have a dedicated Fiat Showroom in the City (near the existing Tata Showroom). Also, there will be some new dealership in Pimpri/Ch'wad area - what I heard from Tata Salesman!

They have taken over the Acumen service center in Bavdhan to make it an independent FIAT service center.

Nice! Will try to visit the place tomorrow. Need to see this one for myself!

Very less chance of having a service center there. Any idea where its going to be located? Have heard some good feedback about Zulaikha motors - hence I think this choice is good for us Chennai folks.

Service Center is coming up in Ekkaduthangal opposite KUN Hyundai. There will be a SC near the showroom itself for minor works and all major works will be done at Ekkaduthangal.

CD - On a side note expect to see some known faces there

Yes. That's true for Service Center. Acumen is currently closed for couple of months for refurbishments / upgrade.

So, Fiat will have Pandit (City), Acumen (Bavdhan), Millennium (Dapodi) as Full Service Centers.
And Fiat Caffe, Pandit (City), and Pimpri-Ch'wad Dealership for Sales.

Is anyone aware what the exact status here in Mumbai with Fiat dealerships and service is? Would be nice to have a handle.

This is one of the worst places at the moment to have a service center. As someone quoted in another Chennai thread, the road there looks like a 4X4 track. Expect the vehicle to to be back in service soon after delivery.

OT - Do let me know any contacts to get a good deal in Jan

I am confused. There is no KUN Hyundai at Ekkaduthangal. There is HMP Service at Ekkaduthangal. KUN has its service at the Guindy Estates very near to Guindy Bus Terminus. If this is the one we are referring to, then no need to worry about the roads as mentioned by Marlon. They are good here.

And here is the daytime picture (Courtesy - teky ). They would be opening 2 service centers, one at Ekkaduthangal (opposite to HMP) and another at KK Nagar.

Yes. From the information I have, both KHT and Prerana will be opening Fiat exclusive sales and service in Bangalore.

Note:- It is rumored that KHT's will be a Fiat Caffe.
