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.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 06 June 2009

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.........
