I am new to TAI
I have booked Chevrolet BEAT 1.2 LT from Singh Motors Co., Pune. I booked the car on 20th Oct'11.
The Sales Executive confirmed that I would be getting the car ready for PDI within 10 days (once car comes to their stockyard on order as they didn't had the color I choose). The very next day SE called me saying that they have a Red BEAT LT in their stockyard (due to someone postponing the delivery) which could be allotted to me if I do the down payment in next 2 days.
I became a bit suspicious about this car hence scheduled a PDI of this car before even confirming that I will take this allocation.
I went for PDI with my wife and did every check diligently and found out that car was March 2011 manufactured and there was some minor damaged under the bonnet due to rat bite (it seemed like that). Also to note that the battery not connected hence I was not able to check the instrument panel and engine.
I told the SE that I do not want this car and he should order a fresh one for me. To which till date he has only confirmed that car might be in their stockyard between 15-20 Nov'11.
I am hoping for the smooth and earliest possibly delivery of my car. And have few questions regarding the PDI as below:
1.Can I test drive the car allotted to me before registration (during PDI).
My dealer seem to be hesitant about it when I asked about it last time
during the above mentioned PDI.
2. What if the car gets damaged after PDI and Registration but before
delivery. What provision would be available to me then? Also advise if
there is any way we can get PDI checklist (for the status of the car
during PDI) duly signed by the dealer/SE and keep that as proof of the
inspected condition of the car before delivery which should match during
Expecting all experts to contribute their bits. Request to MOD
