Default Hello All

hello all,
Thanks to all those who were behind in setting up this website . Though I havent posted anything yet , I took lot of valuble advice from this website when I was looking to buy a new car.
i should tell you that the new car reviews were really good . and I knew what to expect from the car as well as the dealer at the time of buying the car .
I live and work in bangalore and own a Fiat Petra -1.6 - -Well call me what ever u want an idiot or stupid or whatever - I dont care - I am very happy with its performance - and well dealing with the service center is a challenge which i have to live with .

Will post a review some time later on the website - I have done almost 16,000 KMs now .
what else ? If someone wants to know me better they are welcome to send an email ..
thanks
harish

Well - I am really happy with its performances - Been through windy bad roads of OOty and Gudalur many times, it hasnt given any problems so far . It is past 18,000 Km s and hasnt given any major problems so far! .
The car is very stable - ( changed the tires to Michellin Pilot Preceda 185/60 ) even at very high speeds - gives mileage upto 14 . worse being 11 .

Good ground clearence and good power.
Will worry about the service when it breaks down

Welcome to the team Hari, enjoy your stay....

(if the Tata-Fiat alliance will go thru) perhaps they will rename it as Tetra?

Talking

Hey hari,
good to hear some real true praises on the Petra 1.6. is that the EL PS or the ELX. how much did you pay for the whole package (OTR).
i find it a bit disheartening when things like the following happen,

trinadha, i don't think you have driven a fiat!! if you have done that you would prolly not say such a thing, and btw almost all fiat owners in the forum are happy with their cars and with the A/S/S

all cars would go through problems, if it has been badly maintained!!! even heard of guys in mercs and the like having probs.. so the later on part is a bit difficult to fathom

Mods, hope this doesn't offend any one!!
but i find it really hard to digest when people talk without knowing the facts!!!

Have sorta become an un-paid protector for Fiat!!
for that matter, i had even tried to be different with marutis'

hope i'm taken in the right vein!!!
