Default Re: Fiat Linea T-Jet : Test Drive & Review

I saw the same adv in the Gurgaon HT.

Anyone knows how the exchange bonus of 1lakh works ? The dealer quotes a price and deducts 1lakh from the TJet price ?

Same question for the 1lakh gift cheque. What exactly is that?

The on-road price is calculated and from that all the amounts for insurance, gift cheque and ex-bonus is deducted. You are required to pay only the final amount. Not like other cos. where gift cheque would come to you after one month of purchase.
Can you post a scan etc of the advt. Thanks.

I called both KHT & Prerana to ask about this offer in Bangalore and this is the quote I got:

Ex showroom Price 9,51,772.00
Road Tax 1,47,905.00
Handling Charges 5,500.00
Ex Warranty 5,399.00
INSURANCE & RSA FREE
Less:
GIFT CHEQUE (cash discount) 1,00,000.00
EXCHANGE BONUS(in case of individual case) 1,00,000.00
Corporate offer 4000.00
--------------------------------------------------
TOTAL PRICE 906576.00

Am sure one can get ~20K more off on this as they mentioned the Ex-Showroom as 9,36,xxx but while sending the quote mentioned 9,51,xxx.

Am sure there will be more discounts to be had on this soon. Not a hot selling model + petrol prices + one year old stock. I recollect the days when the S10 stock was cleared at ~2L discounts by FIAT when the contact with Sachin was about to expire. A similar situation would happen to the T-jet with quite a bit of one year old stock held by FIAT.

No new T-jet cars being manufactured right now. All the stock is one year old and the discounts are on that only.

Am tempted to buy this driving machine but am sure more discounts are coming soon + with petrol prices heading north, one has to think twice after currently driving a S10 already

Hopefully after Fiat's decision to start their own sales and services in India. It should definitely change their fortune...

I had read somewhere that 2012 T-jet will be launched soon, however, fiat has launched punto sports without any mention of t-jet. Does anyone have an idea about when is the updated t-jet due for launch. Also any idea about how much 2011 stock do they have which is taking so much time to sell.

Fiat is taking it coolly because they dont want to create an impression that the linea as a model will be stopped or has stopped. I guess thats why tjets sell only to people who either love driving a proper petrol head car or somebody who thinks the discounts make sense.

I wish they bought this tjet engine into the punto. It would make for the hottest hatch in India. Period.

The discounts on T-Jet is increased recently to 2.36 Lacs (excg bonus Rs.1 Lac), before that everything was same except exchange bonus which was 40K (I bought three months ago). That offer was started somewhere around Diwali and was in place for around six months and now they have increased further by 60K.
So your thinking is right that the discounts may be increased but when, one can't be sure. Secondly if you wait for more discount, you'll anyway be getting the same car but will postpone your driving pleasure.
I guess few days ago someone posted that Fiat is having around 30-35 T-Jets in their stock, so now maybe less are remaining. I also heard from someone from Fiat that this Excg bonus is for 2010 manufactured cars only and he was not sure about 2011 manufactured ones as he was bit busy (I guess its on all models), so any info on that part.
So all in all, you can wait and watch and test your luck.
On Carwale, 3-4 used T-Jet + (in Mumbai) are being offered for as low as 6 Lacs and with 7000 Km done. You can consider that too.

Need some quick help.

Have booked a Emotion Linea MJD in Bangalore, and expecting delivery May-end or 1st week June. Can any of you guide me on how to verify the manufacturing date from the VIN number, please? Thanks a ton, in advance.

Cheers,
Jagan.

Just booked a T-Jet + at Pandit Auto. I was told it was the last in their stock. Fiat is currently offering 1.15l cash discount, 1l exchange bonus, free first year insurance, free RSA for 50 months and 4k corporate discount. Car is Mar 2011 vintage . Mulled over it for few days and decided you only live once and took the plunge!
