It's odd that a hosting company will put up a message like this. But that doesn't exonerate Fiat from it's lethargy. Heck, even the Bihar government is more efficient than them! By the way, i belive their new commercial manager is a ex-Honda Siel guy. Still no results? Damn, Fiat's lethargy got to him too!
The way fiat is going , i wonder how long they will last. Or more importantly, do they want to last in India? How can anyone survive selling 129 palio's and 125 Petra's a month in the world's second fastest growing auto market is beyond me.
If a company can't sell cars in a fast growing market then where can they sell their cars?

FIAT automobile division might be taken over by General Motors ... there was an report in Economic times three days back about how the GM and FIAT bosses have postponed the talks of acquisition for another three weeks ...
Maybe situation of FIAT India will improve after it merges with GMIL ...

http://www.detnews.com/2005/autosins.../28/-68494.htm

this news post shows that fiat may be trying to sell to gm..if gm is unhappy then obviouisly the price they will have to buy under the put option is much more than the current valuation for fiat's auto biz.. at the same time, for fiat, selling to gm will give them the cash needed to square of a hugh loan they are defaulting on, well almost. under such circumstances, fiat worldwide will probably cut back on operating expenses (other than direct production costs) which offcourse includes marketing/advertising and after sale liabilities like parts replacement under warranty and the like..

129 palios!!!
125 petras is good for a car that was never properly advertised ...
man i will do a better job of getting people to buy palios then the whole fiat team combined
really pathetic
i bet the only reason fiat sold their cars were because of people like us.
this is not good specilly when people began believing that they are trying to improve their standards

It's working beautifully. No problems at all. You may have logged on while the server was possibly down.

It makes it even worse. Even a dumb system admin will isolate a hacked system from network. Looks like no one in Fiat even cared about the site till whole world started talking about it. Real apathy, I would say!
