Yes, thanks. I got a call from Landmark a few days ago. Have booked an appointment for service on Monday. Let's see how it goes.

Sort of sums up FCA's plan for India. They will launch the Jeep Compass this year and launch the localised Renegade by 2019. Guess what they will wait till 2020 or 2021 to evaluate the sales of these two models before investing any further. This also means that there isn't going to be any new Fiat product in the near future.

All the more reason for Fiat to get the pricing of Compass right. Need not be Creta sort of pricing, even if they were to price it at par with the Elantra,Corolla and Octavia, I see it making a pretty decent mark here. Anything above and even if the product is very good it becomes a difficult proposition. Only the Innova and the T-Fort have been exceptions until now and with the right reasons.

This report again speculates that FCA may stop selling Fiat cars in India to focus on Jeep. But no confirmation.

The other day I saw that their Velachery showroom (Ramkay Fiat) is moving to Nungambakkam, the heart of the city where property prices are sky high! Is it in anticipation of Jeep, or are rumours of Fiat's demise exaggerated? (The Velachery showroom did not sell Jeep.) Ramkay seems to have opened a second showroom in Chennai, which makes it 4 Fiat dealerships (2 Ramkay, 2 RDC) and 1 Jeep showroom (RDC) in the city I believe. Ramkay is previously known as a bike dealer (TVS), Fiat was their first foray into cars.

According to a friend, commercial space in Velachery is quite expensive, so its actually economical for them to move to Nungambakkam. Yes they could also use the opportunity to add Jeep. But right now Ramkay Fiat's service center is a bigger bottleneck.

That's awesome news. I stay around 5 KM from this mall. Right now I am having to travel 40 KM's on the nice road to reach Vecto motors in Singsandra.

I am assuming that this will also have Jeep service as I am aware that KHT is opening a Jeep Showroom somewhere around there.

This went operational in the month of June, I believe on the 19th. Big enough facility and includes the service facility for Jeep as well.

On the other side, the Aadya motors both sales and services have closed down.

Yes, it's the same as Jeep Facility. Service center address for both Jeep and Fiat is exactly the same.

Old No.15A, New No.44, Industrial Suburb Service Road, Leading to Tumkur Road, RMC Yard Post, Opposite to shell petrol bunk, Yeshwantpur, Bangalore-560022, Karnataka

Are you sure? Because I had given my punto for the second free service on June 30th and did receive feedback call last week.
Also, they asked me to visit this week for a warranty claim.
