It was thru GM that Suzuki had access to a wide range of Fiat MJD engines (GM used to hold/still holds stake in Fiat/Suzuki), GM previously spun off its entire holdings in Fiat (a year or 2 back) and is now planning to off load its entire holding in Suzuki.

I'm guessing that would leave Fiat and Suzuki to decide on their partnership future! Given 1.3MJD doing duty in Palio, Linea, GP & Vista, what would prompt Fiat (or Tata) to oblige to a defunct relationship and jeopardize their Indian market ops?

b. A sub-par service experience with Sundaram Motors, Chennai - I think a part took close to a couple of weeks to arrive and he wasn't too amused.

c. His son wanted something sportier

Incidentally, he bought the SX4 ZXi after selling off the Aveo and then a Swift VDi. The SX4 usually lies in the garage - to me, it didn't make a sensible upgrade from the Aveo.
Thanks. All in all, nothing is wrong with the car then. I know people who have bought car just because of the driving position comfort alone, hence you really never can possibly predict why one goes for a specific car?
