Probably one of the main reasons why such a beauty doesn't sell. The dealership experience is pathetic. Won't recommend Aadya Fiat to anyone in Bangalore.
Thats a shame. What was the dealer excuse for alloting a half year old car? Did the dealer not promise to get the latest manufactured car? Suggest to write to Fiat about your experience. Did you try with other Bangalore dealers?

Could not understand your condition of Aug make vehicle? Your research seems to have gone waste, I would say.

Hi Ghodlur,
Sales team had showed me a spreadsheet of availability of cars from the month of Aug 2015. They were giving a handsome discount too. My condition was that I would accept any vehicle from Aug onwards not before that.

More than the research the emotions with the T-Jet. I had written to Fiat and the dealer told them to look into options instead I was communicated by the dealer that there will be a deduction of 10K as a part of cancellation. I am working with the fiat team to get my money back.

Hi Congrats on the 90HP scorcher. Have you taken the delivery? Looking forward to read the ownership reviews.

How much did it cost you OTR? Any discounts you could grab from the dealer?

Got my car delivered on 5th Feb'16, surprisingly on the committed date. OTR was 8.37 lacs. Its a bargain for 2016 model. I am working on initial ownership review, will publish it soon.
