Please advise.

The entire price of the car has to be paid before registration. Do a PDI before the registration process and make the final payment.

If the accounts team is not working on a Sunday, you will not get a gate pass.

Use your goodwill with the sales guy, give him a small gift and he will ensure that your car is parked in a nice place until Sunday. Get them to park in the basement if there is one.

Congratulations and all the very best. Safe driving.

Hello Senior BHP-ians. Has anyone ever demanded to see form 22 and Internal PDI certificate? My car shopping woes don't seem to end. Having paid entire amount, this should not be a problem. Yet, my dealer unwilling to share copies of those. The dealer is Shaw Toyota, Pune.

Dear all, is there any updated version of the PDI checklist PDF present in page 1? I couldn't figure out a way to find it quickly. I have booked for New Ertiga and delivery is expected coming week.

Hi, I will be booking my Honda City VMT on the 29th of this month. The loan formalities should take 2 days so in essentia, I am looking at having the car delivered in the next 10 days. I have a specific question on the VIN. What is the acceptable month & year of mfg that I can pick up the vehicle at. Perhaps the qn may not be clear. If I book the car on 29th Sep, should I reject any car which is beyond 3months since manufacture i.e 29th June 2019?

Dealer is saying that form 22 copy is only available after 1 week of clearing of all payments in case I an going for bank loan. Please confirm if this statement is correct or is the dealer representatives not being truthful.

Should 1 more item regarding the modalities of FASTag activation be included in the checklist, as now all vehicles are coming with dealer provided FASTag?

A recent experience shared by a Reddit user highlights the importance of doing PDI :

The folks at Popular Hyundai in Ernakulam tried to give us a display model when we had made it clear from the get go that we will not accept a display or test drive model of the car. When we went to sign some documents, we asked for a PDI. Initially they said it's in the yard. But after 5 mins the exec came back and said it's the display car. After a bit of arguing and waiting, we left the showroom and then the exec who sold us the car called and said they have allocated a different car. Lets see how that goes :|

I have added the checklists in an app called checklist. the android app is here.
Checklist App for Android

The iPhone app is here, although I have not tested the app or downloading as I don't have any apple device.
Checklist App for iPhone

once you download and install this app app. you can import the 4 checklists that I have created

01] Car PDI - Visual & Tactile Inspection (at Stock Yard)

02] Car PDI - Car Features Operation & Engine Inspection

03] PDI - Driving Test

04] Car PDI * After the Drive Inspection

I hope this will be handy rather than carrying papers/ pdf.

Of course ... this uses the original lists as published in this thread so thank you for that wonderful work.
please suggest any improvements that we can add.
