  1. Go for the Linea Diesel. Active and Dynamic variants have great discounts as of now. Also Fiat claims the MJD to have a life of 2.5 lakhs kilometers.
  2. Well done Cyrus !! This ***** need to be taught a lesson. Hope this becomes big news on the media !!!
  3. Carmaker Fiat India Automobiles today said it will consider raising prices of its products as the margins are under pressure. "There are no margins left ... We may look at revising our prices upward," Fiat India Automobiles President Rajeev Kapoor told reporters on the sidelines of the SAIM annual convention in New Delhi. The company expects sales to cross 27,000 units this year on the back of newly launched small car Grande Punto and sedan Linea. Kapoor also said the company would start exporting Linea to South Africa from September this year. Fiat India Automobiles - the 50:50 joint venture between Italy's Fiat and Tata Motors, has recently arranged Rs 2,500 crore (Rs 25 billion) financing for completing the construction of its manufacturing facility at Chakan. Fiat had announced Rs 4,000 crore (Rs 40 billion) investment in India operations. Source: http://business.rediff.com/report/2009/aug/28/auto-fiat-may-hike-prices-of-india-cars.htm
  4. Aveo is a great looking car. I did not even TD it because most of the forums were not in favour of it. I recently saw it in the Vahan Yatra and was stunned by its looks and was cursing myself for not even taking a TD and then deciding.
  5. My experiences with Prerana Motors Bangalore has been pretty decent so far considering issues with TASS. You can read my experience on the Welcome Linea thread.
  6. Aveo is the worst sedan available in India. Read all about it in Team-BHP.com. Fiesta or Linea would be a better choice.
  7. I doubt Honda will ever make Diesel engines !!!
  8. Best is to visit the car manufacture's website. Most of the car websites don't have all the accurate information
  9. 11-12km with 100% AC - Santro ZipPlus 2002 - in Bangalore traffic.
  10. Just heard on TeamBHP - no new Linea versions till mid next year
  11. Llumar, 3M and V-kool are good brands and the ones you have choosen are also good ones. Stay away from Garware.
  12. I never said it is a bad car. I am saying it is only a overpriced car with less features than other cars and it is selling only because of brand name and reasons stated above.
  13. I have been driving a car for 12 years now and I change gears without thinking about it. I dont even find it troublesome, so I think for people like me AT is not useful because of reduction in mileage. Also, when I took TD of i10 AT I found myself pressing the brake hard thinking it is the clutch couple of times causing the car to stop hard.
  14. Jazz has the best engine - but it is too expensive
  15. When is the Polo based Sedan coming to India?
  16. Go for Punto MJD - it will work out in the long run if you do 1000km per month
  17. I don't agree with this. Honda also has localized majority of their parts. Honda is taking Indians for a ride literally !!!
  18. @lalitmach22 What did you finally go for?
  19. Linea if you are going for diesel SX4 or i20 if you are going for petrol
