  • Expert Hi,
    Fiat petra is discontinued model.Its engine is good but fit and finish is not so good and the frequency of maintenance problems is quite high.

  • Hi Shashi,

    The question is not clear. Petra was introduced in 1.6 & 1.2 petrol versions and is a fantastic car. Technologically it is better than many other cars in the segment. But there is a kind of mental block for fiat cars in India. Perhaps that is the reason it has not been doing as well as expected here.

  • Dear Sir,

    I used Fiat Petra for nearly 3yrs n now i have sold it.

    It had run around 45000KMS n i didn't had any problem. Mine was Diesel 1.9L with 65BHP. The engine was Gem, hardly u could hear de noice inside de cabin n when it was launched none of the manufacturers were having so big n powerful engine.

    Regarding maintenance only during service intervals(7500KMS) i used to face the problem since that time M/s.Sundaram was incharge of servicing and i tell u v had horrible experience with them but now since TATA has taken over service, i hope it will be good.

    I am great fan of Fiat vehicles n engines. Simply Go for it.........
