Wooo Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!

No?

Okay. :(

This is the best news I have heard about Fiat in some time. Though I still do not doubt that they might be selling out the Indian operations to some one else.

I am not sure whats really happening with Fiat.

Two weeks back, my Dad's Siena's mufler got a hole and is making awful noise. The mechanic in my Parents town placed an order with the dealer in Hyderabad. They wanted the picture of the mufler. ***, an authrozed dealer doesn't know the details of a certain model car. The dealer placed the prder with the company and was promising us the delivery by last weekend. Today the news is they want to Know whether the car is Euro 2 or Euro 3.

You will seriously get beaten up.

On a more serious note, this is the page which shows the award for engine of the year in various categories.
http://www.channel4.com/4car/feature...es-view-4.html

The engine of the year award went to BMW 5 litre V10 engine. The Fiat multijet 1.3 litre engine got the best engine award in the 1-1.4 litre engine category.

Hi,
I recently bought new PALIO nv from Mumbai dealer Fort Point. Out of curiocity, I asked the dealer how many Palios they have sold last month. I was shocked to hear the answer. Do you want to know the figure.....................7 (Seven). I coulnot believe it. Ofcouse, this figure is only for Palio not the PETRA included. But still...it is so discouraging to see such a great product being rejected by Indians....

ashutosh
1.2 Plaio nv ELX / Galaxy Black.
