Hi Gurpreet,
We Indians think of resale value before buying a car. Secondly, we are not well-informed about what we are buying.
Thirdly, we are like sheep, we follow others, don't express our desires, are not adventurous, don't like the quality,
but....!!!!. I think, you understand my words in right spirit.
You know, what? Kings are rare, but sheep lie in herds...!
I'm a Fiat-palio owner, I suggest you to go for 1.3MJD-Punto-90bhp and then rule the road. Definite, you will not repent the decision. There is no comparision of ugly-duckling-swift with Punto-90bhp.

Hi,
Fiat Punto is a highly reliable car with performance and build quality. There is clear improvement in sales of Punto with increased service center in asociation with Tata Motors.Only thing is one should take initiative to try beyond ordinary.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 01 January 2011

Definitely I agree with other people's comments. Fiat Punto is indeed better than Maruthi Swift. It has better Driving Dynamics, Interiors, Fuel economy(Diesel), Superior built quality, etc... The only problem is it has low ground clearance and service is poor...Otherwise the car is perfect...

Answer by Gurpreet 01 January 2011

Herd mentality and thinking about resale even before purchasing the car.

Answer by Krishnamoorthy Thyagarajan 04 April 2011

If you buy FIAT GRANDE PUNTO you will never your decision. I will recommend you Punto 90HP as you are looking for Diesel car. Its fun to drive, loaded with lots of features which are avaialble in high end luxury cars like AUDI, BMW & MERC. If you need some more information visit www.facebook.com/teamfiat.

Swift is a very comman car, every tom dick & harry owns it. Be special & by a special car for you.

Answer by Kedar Bendre 04 April 2011

Have you ever purchased anything with a bad reputation. If you want to say yes just think of it... FIAT UNO and Palio were a Nightmare to all the owners so even if BMW or Merk takes over the Name FIAT their sales will fall in INDIA it is as simple as that.Fiat Is A Titanic(FIAT) among Cars.It has fallen low and is lying underwater..it will never rise. Not even with TATA name.

Answer by VENKATESHWARAN 04 April 2011

VENKATESHWARAN seems to be coming from a 'herd" very recently, espacially the last 'sheep' entering the sheep-shed. I suggest VENKATESH to go through the Palio/Punto owners reviews to reconsider his views. Actually, FIAT-SPA cannot cheat their customers by launching cheap-products at high price, like others showing off, decievingly,the so called "brands name". For example, see LineaT-jet-plus.... is there any match in this segment.....these characteristics and features are not even seen in 14-lac cars, what about your Baleno...hehehehe....!!!

Answer by S A SHAH 04 April 2011

fiat has been always wonderful with their cars and i have seen many palio owners still loving their car like anything.

punto too is a very good car and we should all remember that multijet engine used in maruti,tata brands is of fiat.

i do agree that fiat has very low resale value and not a very good dealership and after sales service though there is improvement as compare to earlier.

but the simple fact is that fiat with its padmini has been very casual, this was someting i heard from my elders in terms of everything. they say that fiat has not done a good job in indian market with their approach. they say fiat padmini used old technology as earlier using and continue with it in future but maruti car 800cc came out to be better product that , similarly for uno one of the reason to fail was better compititors like 800 and zen with better sales and services became hot product. they told that fiat didn't studied indian market and was not able to fullfill the demands of people and way they show their attitude.

ok this was past and now coming to future, fiat has now been changed , as of economy growth fiat is now even working hard to get back and joing the customers again.

but still the thinking of indians remain same 1st preference is given to brand like maruti always. brands like hyundai,honda and toyota have also been successful with their product reliability.

i must say the time is changed now the world is moving some other way.

Answer by Mantra 04 April 2011

You cannot go wrong with a FIAT in terms of driving pleasure safety etc. Service is a thorn in the flesh. I have so far owned a Palio NV , GTX ,Adventure and now SDX. FIAT invented CRDI, Now multijet and Multi air engines which are acclaimed all over the world and all major car makers use FIAT engines. I would always go for good car even though poor service than going for a bad car with Good service.

Answer by Krishnamoorthy Thyagarajan 04 April 2011

Yes, Dear Krishnamorthy, one should seek pleasure even by looking at his car. See the road-presence of any FIAT car, and when you are inside, should feel safe.
I'm not pleased by looking at Honda-city-sideways...unproportional front and back. See Dzire, very sad-design. On the other hand, you get a feeling of class and pleasure to see a FIAT from any angle....be it Palio, Punto, Linea (in India). Fiat cars in Europe and Brazil are breath-taking.....fall in love at first-sight.

Dear every bit of thing told for the punto is true but if go for comparison with swift it is not fair. swift is the leader of its segement prize, resale, spare part costing and availabilty, comfort, style,and many more things. punto is the vehicle of the company which expert in manufacturing of quality product. but another side told us that it does not great history in indian market if compare with maruti. Fiat came and again came with some thing new but never take this market seriously. so at the end of every deal money matters and on that front swift always a winner. maruti is also working on swift and i want to assure you if you wait for little bit new version of the swift is going to hit the market. and i can bet on that new swift will be far more advance and better than punto.

Answer by Prashant Yadav 04 April 2011

hii prashant yadav u r totaly wrong ... how ?? i will tell u.. u know fiat had give their own engine to maruti swift due to which the maruti swift had gain the popularity... befor that nooooo one even a single person was not asking for the swift,..same as in the case of maruti sx4... still maruti sx4 no body is asking..... but one more thing u know maruti has call their maruti swift , desire , ritz and sx4 also in which they have to replce the crank pin because they had used small size crank pin.... from here u can conclude that maruti peoples aare simply copying the engine .. they are not using the brain.... so thats y they have to call 13000 their car back .. to replace the crank pin.......... u know u feel jealous .. dear try once fiat ......u really alays found of fait .. because its just like a drug.. once u use to fiat u always found of fiat...

Answer by Gurpreet 04 April 2011

My All Dears, FIAT-Cars are for those who seek pleasure from driving,and ofcourse "drive emotionally", But M-suzuki cars are for brookers...who think of benefitting from selling "used" and get used.....!!!!
