Default fiat India website solution

I just fuond this out.


when you type fiat-india.com

the site doesnt open

but when you type www.fiat-india.com
the site will pop up quickly (disable pop-ups)

the www needs to go before the website.

it opens both ways.sometimes the site is inacessable because of server or traffic problems.

so www.fiat-india.com , http://fiat-india.com and fiat-india.com all work.

I had stopped caring if Fiat stays in India or not, but now that website is up, it definitely is a good news. Contents are updated at most of the places (accessories section talks about Sienna still).

can't remember exactly where, but somewhere in the site (on comparisons with other brands and models), they have mentioned that the SKODA Octavia does not provide airbags/ABS or something like that.

i don't really think that is true. can someone confirm ?

Be thankful that Skoda provides a handbrake...seen their basic basic basic model? People call it solidly engineered, I'd call it solidly stripped.

BTW - whether or not Fiat shuts down, isnt it time to shut down this thread???

Fiat website has not been revamped at all. They shut down the website as the company was in big troubles(maybe to save money)

that compartision will be against the diesel coutnerparts. Diesel doesnt have ABS.

it has not been revamped but most of the content has been updated.

BTW,the Fiat website is not badly designed at all.i has very good features,navigation and is very fast once the initial loading is complete.

there are very little updates if any. Addition is the content for the Petra Petrol/Diesel and the Adventure.

I remember the site very well from when it was functional, and most of the content is ditto.
