Can the mods please inform when the team-bhp review would be out?

I am quite sure at least 75% of us here would be taking a call based on the review.

I think their manufacturing plant near pune being closer to mumbai, the transportation cost is reduced hence the ex-showroom ( not sure though)

No idea, received email from jeep this morning because i have booked petrol AT red color. But still not sure whether to go ahead with purchase. But I still have good two months to decide before petrol AT hits the market in october first week. Have been promised delivery in October end.

Hi everyone,

It's being a long time I posted. I am in a buying decision between compass and Elantra. I took TD of both yesterday, I do understand both are from different segments. Jeep I test drove was a diesel version as petrol will only come in September for TD. I feel it's a little overpriced as top model limited (o) petrol automatic only comes with 2 airbags, no auto headlamps, no auto wipers and manual seat adjust. I think its kind of a deal breaker for me compared to elantra and XUV W10.

Does petrol AT (or for that matter, any variant of petrol Compass) make any sense? given that there is only a INR 50,000 difference between Petrol and Diesel variants. The diesel engine has more power (bhp) and torque and is much more fuel efficient. Doesn't it make sense to wait for diesel automatic?

Sorry bud, can't work against the clock when compiling a review.

What I suggest for cars that'll have a waiting period = get your booking done, test-drive it & wait for the official review, then based on your liking / disliking it, take a call on the booking.

turns out Jeep has made it compulsory to buy 1st year insurance from them. and handling charges seem a standard and dont feel like they will waive them.

Have booked the petrol automatic option and waiting for September for a test drive. I am also curious about the accessories list, when asked they said basic accessories. So there is no way in hell i am paying 25k for a bunch of matts etc. I rather go the aftermarket route. This was the Juhu/Andheri Jeep showroom. Waiting for them to get back with what exactly is available in that 25k .

Aanybody else manage to get outside insurance do let me know so i can argue with them over it. Would like to save up money on this car. Pushed from my initial creta automatic budget to almost 7-8 lakhs lol

I don't think petrol AT makes any sense at the current price point - especially with missing airbags. If someone can afford to wait, it is better to get the fully loaded diesel AT.

After a bit of coercion during my discussion with the Landmark Jeep sales guy in Delhi, he finally relented and said that I can get a quote from outside and they will match it. Hope it helps.

Absolutely, but there is price for everything,
Already stretched my budget from 15 to 20 and i dont think diesel AT will be any cheaper than 27L which a bit of a steep stretch for me as of now.

Just the arm twisting tactic of the dealers to make quick bucks with the rush around. Put your foot down and say you wont pay this or you cancel the booking. Drop a note to FCA mentioning this clearly. They will waive it off. Off late the current dealers were too pushy about this and a couple of my friends put down their foot and did not to pay the handling charges as well as got the insurance from their sources. FCA dealer had to oblige. Just be stubborn and firm. Ask for a cash/payment receipt for these charges instead of debit notes.

Just doesn't work when you compare feature to feature between a sedan and an SUV in our market. Take a call strictly by your need. If you are not going to go off road or don't drive on bad country roads, the sedan is the way to go. The SUVs are always costly.

Makes total sense.

Instead of asking to waive off the handling charges, I asked them to increase the discount on the car by an equivalent amount when I got my Punto. Regarding insurance, just tell them to match the quote from outside, or allow you to take it from outside. There are many honest dealers who will sell you just the car and throw in some freebies as well without you asking. You might have to buy it from some outside city dealer. Also mention that you will check the RTO receipts and there shouldn't be much difference between the actual and quoted figures.

Lately this menace of compulsory accessories, handling charges, and insurance has been increasing. A person known to me fought hard with the Renault dealer who was overcharging by almost 45k on a Kwid under the name of RTO agent fees, depot charges etc. and got it waived off. The trick is to stay firm. And with the advent of online / social media, bad name for a dealer will travel fast.

The lone Fiat dealer in Mumbai has a lot to do to improve their services. I for one wasn't much impressed with their service despite me being an existing Fiat customer and 3-4 of my references buying cars from them. While the Jeep Compass is a hit no doubt, me giving them a future sale is definitely a question mark. After all, its your hard earned money!

It's the other way round. Localised parts will also be supplied to MOPAR as spare parts and hence the badging.

I stand validated to this date, base model prices are within the range I quoted.
