@Floyd- TATA ranks towards the bottom in the "sales experience" as per the latest study by JD Power Asia Pacific.
I was "refused" Linea TD. But still I stuck with Fiat in my case as it is the sales team that is lousy.
I don't say that give T-Jet another chance but just explaining why you had this experience.

When it comes to after sales service, Fiat has ranked number 2 (ahead of Honda and Hyundai) in customer service and I'm very happy to read it.

This could be an exception - in my case, I was attended promptly by "Tuscan wine" blazer clad Fiat sales reps who carefully took me through all the features and then arranged a TD immediately. These guys were Fiat specific and did not handle any Tata sales.

is this the concorde motors showroom ? The wine red shade looks awesome. I always feel Fiat has some of the best colors in the automobile industry. If once recollects the outrageous colors that the Palio sported..and yet could carry with such flamboyance that no other car has.

I have been informed that my Tjet would be arriving today. My loan is yet to be approved by SBI and i am hoping that the dealership doesnt put up the car in the showroom for display :(

I am keeping my fingers crossed for the loan approval to happen quickly and this wait is getting completely to my nerves..

cheers

As always Wonderful Review GTO! This leaves me with a question albeit for people to voice their views. With us ignoring the space, interiors et al and concentrating on What is the best drivers car this side of 10 lacs ex showroom- Would it be the new Linea T-Jet or the Fiesta S? My heart still says Fiesta S.

GTO's T-Jet review is comprehensive. I saw the T-Jet at Concorde Motors, Cochin today.

A few observations.
1. The interior plastics is better than my Linea MJD E+.
2. With 16" Wheels it has better ground clearance.
3. Cigarette lighter and ashtray is missing in T-Jet.
4. Spare wheel is also an alloy.

I liked the instrument console. Looks better than the retro theme console present here.

Gleaning from all these pages of reviews, observations & speculations I think that's the most emphatic & concise statement made in conclusion. And I loved hearing it! The T-Jet appears my potential new car for many, i repeat many, reasons. FIAT India bravo!

Fiat Linea T-Jet is the only car in its segment to have sun visors with vanity mirrors on both sides. Yes, Fiat loves female drivers as well!

I'm attaching a picture for reference - (Picture courtesy - TFI)

Excellent! now Fiat has just to follow up with some good service and maintenance procedures. This car will be every other car owners envy and we frankly need someone to lead the market in style and substance and fiat is doing this even if they aren't making the numbers.

I had a very fundamental question on the pricing and the positioning of the Linea TJet and a number of comments in relation to the ANHC. I have read a number of posts which state that the Tjet with its pricing and power would not get good numbers for Fiat and it would only be an enthusiast's car. Many have commented that it would not be a mass market car.

Now at Rs 11.9 lacs on road bangalore, the Tjet is just below the ANHC top end (Manual) pricing from what i understand. That being the case, when the Honda is selling such huge numbers, why cant the T Jet with a much more driveable engine, sexier design and much better equipped car with almost the same or marginally low fuel efficiency command better market share ? Why would one think that this is only an enthusiasts car and not a car which would bring in numbers for Fiat ?

Any comments ?

Cheers
Vinay
