Yes 1.5 is good deal for Siena If its in good condition! Siena is good car but has poor resale value!

Regards,

Ravi.

As an indication I can give my xperience. Last august, I bought a single owner siena 1.6 elx (aug 2003 bangalore registration) for 2.25 lacs. The car was in pretty good condition with some minor dents and had 27000 on the odo. the car is running great, but with some minor noise/rattle issues.

1.65L for a car that is out of production & a company that cannot provide spares or service. dont fall for it man. get a newer car, if you want the sienna, not a 5 year old, which could be bringing up some major repairs.

Congrats on the purchase! Happy Motoring. Siena is good car don't feel bad if you don't get any parts while servicing, you need to wait for few extra days sometimes but not always!

FIAT cars are always great!

Ravi.

From where did you get that info???
Petra (previously Sienna) is very much in production, though it is available at Fiat exclusive dealers only!
Agree, there is a delay in getting Spares, but it is very much available!
And with Tata Motors providing Service, it is no longer a issue to be sung again & again!

Mettalica, Many Congrats on your new purchase!
Enjoy driving the Italian beauty!

Thnaks prkothan & basilmabraham .

Although I have been told that I have paid about 20K odd more for the car, I have no regrets. It very well maintained and nicely kept car.

Will post some pictures over the weekend.

Congrats!

My cousin and I bought the exact same car - Aug 2002 Siena 1.6 for 1.75 in Bangalore in August last year. The car is thrilling to drive. I have got 14 kmpl in a combined City/Highway drive, plus have touched 170 kmph on the expresshighway on numerous occasions!

Need to do the following to ensure that it's better:

1) New windshield - current one has gravel rash
2) Alloys
3) Tubeless tyres

Cant wait for the annual raise to happen.

Mettalica - enjoy your ride and have fun!

Superavi

Edit: The 14 Kmpl was a light foot driving effort - 100 kmph on the highway, and in the city (i actually live on the outskirts) upshifting at 1750 - 2000 rpm.
