@Palio_2005: Tata is doing its level best to make things unbearably expensive. Here is a gurgaon comparison of some parts with Swift VDI:
Diesels ke some sample spare prices: PalioMJD Swift Diesel

Headlight - 8000 3000
Tailight cluster - 5000 1056
Bumper - 12000 3200
Rear view mirror - 1200 1500
Fuel Filter - 2500 800 (from members' bills seen here).

Or the spares guy at Dhingra motors needs to be fired Maruti rates are from AAA vehicleades.
are you sure about these rates ? Looks pretty steep. For my petrol the fuel filter was 100 odd Rs. and I recently changed my headlight for 6400 which is more expensive than swift but still better than 8k

bhai sahab, please call your regular guys and confirm. choose a small maruti dealer else the stores guy will not even bother to talk to you.

Please recheck. I suspect some loading has happened at dhingra motors. I've been trying vivek but they are outta contact for most of the weekend.

Hello CtrlAltDel,
Go ahead and buy a MJD.No issues.You will forget all prices when the car gives you a driving pleasure.The prices will come down in some time.Dont worry.I would say that you should stick on to your good decision of buying a MJD.Go ahead.I am saying this as a proud FIAT owner.Where are you getting it?Malik cars in Banjara Hills?or Concorde at Khairatabad or AutoFin Bowenpally??

Just contact all the dealers and see what is the deal each is giving you.if everyone gives you the same kind of deal,go for Concorde if you dont have any preference(in my case if I buy a new FIAT,i would go to VST in chennai as I know a Sales man very well there).So if the deal is the same everywhere,go to Concorde.Moreover be careful with dealers otherthan Concorde as they sell cars with some defects.I saw a MJD with the air filter hose cut off and it was sold as it is.Then the customer fought with FIAT and got it replaced under warranty.So be careful.Do a PDI yourself.Coming to the service point I stayed in Medchal for a year and my Siena too stayed there for a year.I did some service at Autofin,Bowenpally.Horrible Service.But as far as i know Concorde at Uppal is doing good service.So even if you buy the car at Autofin or Malik get the free services done at Concorde.By the way where do ou stay in hyderabad???

Default 1222 KMs & 1st Service Completed

I have run the car for about 1222 Kms till now & the only issue I observed with my car was that it would wobble a bit, especially on low speeds. Gave it Green Tracks for service today & went for a drive with Babu to explain the problem to him, he too acknowledged that it does wobble.

Car is now being delivered but Babu mentioned that the wobble hasn't been fixed yet. He mentioned that it seems to be becasue of the tyres & that he has taken an 'Alignment Report' that he will be sending to Fiat. He also asked me to get an 'Alignment Report' from another Tyre/Service Station for comparison purposes since it will help the case & that he will be sending both these reports to Fiat, post which he will ask me to get the car back to rectify the issue as advised by Fiat.

'm just keeping my fingers crossed & hoping that this is nothing more than a simple alignment issue.

Experts: Any ideas what could be causing this wobble?

I dont thinks its an alignment issue, If It was then they would had fixed it in 20 mins @ 280 Rs Only ,
I had the same kind of Problem The resolution was :FIAT Replaced my front tyre which was of goodyear.

In Your Case IT Could be Because of the Rim or Tyre.
