Please don't take one bad experience to heart. Am sure the one year old Maruti Brezza is going to serve you better and you knew it too well even before you went into that showroom.

If I want a car, no bad dealer is going to stop me. For it is the product that is important to me, not the seller.

A dealer part of the producing side of fence, not the consuming side. If everyone thought that bad dealer is ok, customer would be the slave. Mediocrity will creep in and dealers won't need to give a damn. I think we should be demanding and willing to penalize the manufacturer for poor dealerships

Absolutely!

However - I believe his point was that he would penalize a manufacturer for poor products as compared to ones with poor dealers. I believe in the same as well - A good product from a bad dealer is much more value for the money paid than a compromised product from a good dealer. Product is more important than the seller.

Afterall, dealer experience comes once in the purchase cycle. Service experience might come once every 15k kms or once a year. But - you live with the car every single day for atleast 2-3 years!

If a better product is available at a better dealership /service network, at a comparable price - they deserve the money, no doubts about it.

In my case, it is definitely going to stop me. Hence I own a VW Jetta, not a Skoda Octavia

PS: There were other contributing factors as well but the attitude of dealer certainly didn't help the cause of Skoda.

When it comes to automobile shopping, my heart has this amazing ability to turn off my mind. My garage has already have a couple of proofs of that.

Ouch! There is a saying in Germany - "A mistake, however late it is identified, should always be corrected"

I wish German manufacturers knew this, otherwise we would not have DSG failures that frequently over the years .

These are a couple of videos which shows a brand new un registered Jeep Compass with Smoke coming out of the engine bay.
The owner says that they were stuck in a heavy traffic jam and he moved the vehicle for 100-200 meters with clutch partially engaged. The owner, who was also driving the car, does not remember which gear he was in at that time. He claims that a few passerby said that some smoke is coming out of the vehicle.When he stopped the vehicle, a crowd gathered around the vehicle and started looking for the source of the smoke.
The owner says the smoke may have been out of some burnt insulation near the clutch, but he is not too sure about it. Someone from the crowd poured water in the engine bay which caused a lot of steam to come out. What looks like smoke in the video is actually steam! The owner also claims that he is very satisfied with the vehicle and it is in perfectly fine condition.

Just saw Jeep showroom opened in Satara city on the Pune-Banglore national highway. Satara is comparatively small city and not a big city like Pune, Kolhapur, Nasik etc. This shows that Jeep is very serious about Indian market and want to succeed here which is a very welcome and positive news. Hope they will ensure about the good service as well. Keeping prices low for spares and service will help them gain confidence of Indian customers sooner. Typical Indian mentality is people will spend lac or two more initially when they purchase a car, but want low maintenance costs. Hope Jeep will make sure that maintenance costs are in check.

Perfectly said. I own a fiat Linea and the product is outstanding. The sales was a miss initially, but i could easily negate the FASS shortcomings by building a good rapport with the service team.
I dont remember a single instance where i faced any service issue. Right from the workshop mechanic to fiat management , all were available anytime for any anticipated issue.

I dont want to compromise on the product with which i have to live 99.9% of the time for the 0.1% of better service experience which is quite subjective again.

FYI guys - In Gurgaon, the Mahindra showroom near Guru Dronacharya metro station has been replaced by an FCA showroom. Good prime location, ample parking and two banks in the same complex just in case you want to make that booking

Hello All,

I too had a very small test drive of the compass. I only concentrated on the driving aspects since the showroom was crowded like mad! this was on a weekend. It is very evident jeep guys are going berserk over the response on the vehicle.

I drive a duster AWD. so to all who plan for a duster upgrade. let me tell it in short. THIS IS IT!

like i mentioned did not spend much time on it. I was lucky to get a test drive since i just dropped by.

Quick comparison:

Duster Steering :6/10 Compass Steering 9/10
Duster engine response : 9/10 Compass Engine response: 9.5/10
Duster Ride & Handling : 9/10 Compass ride & Handling : 9/10 (couldnt check at higher speeds. Short drive)
Duster Braking : 9/10 (My previous car was ford IKON) Compass Braking : 10/10
Duster Interiors : 4/10 Compass Interiors :8/10
Duster exterior : 8/10 Compass Exterior :9/10
Duster torque feel & Drivability: 8/10 Compass Torque feel & Drivability: 9.5/10
Duster Mileage :9/10 (highway between 16-19) Compass (dont Know)

These are only my personal opinion.
