Thank you @ Kishore108. I bought Fiat Punto 90 hp, Now I understood why people tell so many horrible things about the service and sales experience with TML showrooms and ASS
and now I can tell confidently how TaTa Motors Ltd showrooms specially at Rajahmundry literally doesn't even know how to handle potential customers and they need to learn from Maruthi a lot. I agree that Zest is a good car but after my experience I decided to stay away from TML, can you imagine they just simply refused to change the color and they tried to tell all BS stories even they said invoice was made on my name and so they cant change the color. I even spoke to the TML area sales manger and he himself tried to say invoice was made on my name. When I confronted him that I found out no dealer makes invoice until they get full amount and that too, I only paid 10k with receipt and 5k with out receipt, total 15k then he agreed that invoice was not made and I am under no obligation to buy the car if I dont want and he further said that it will take much work to change the color of the car and promised me that he will get back to me soon. I got a call after couple of days from SA asking weather I am willing to buy 2015 make old stock car and they will give pathetic 25k discount. The same SA initially told me earlier when I was inquiring don't go for old 2015 car. How pathetic they are? They don't even bother to follow the potential customer. Maruthi SA`s came to me many times and tried to convince me to go for Maruthi products like Dizire or Ciaz. Now I need to figure out how much money I am going to get back from them out of my 15k I paid. I really wanted to buy Zest XT Quadrajet and all banking formalities are finalized they royally screw..d with their horrible attitude.
Now I am happy with my choice Punto Evo Sports 90 hp, only complaint is Turbo lag and 2nd gear is not so great but over all Punto is built like a Tank. Being a doctor my priority was safety and now I am 100% satisfied.
By the way this was my 2nd bad experience with the same Sri Koduri Motors Rajahmundry, TML cause actually I booked TaTa Tiago diesel waited 1 month and I wanted to go for top end version and I changed my choice from the earlier version cause there was no test drive diesel car available at the time of booking and I was told I can change the version with in the time with out extending the waiting period. When I opted for top end version after td of diesel Tiago, I was told white color literally will take 3 to 4 months at the least cause TML doesnt produce white color in top end models and they wanted to push silver instead of white. Then also I spoke with this same TML area manager and he assured me that he will call bak but he never did. Then I realized why to spend 7lak on new instead I can extend and go for better car so started looking for better cars in under 10 lak diesel cars. My short list was Tata Zest, Ford FIGO/ASPIRE and VW POLO. Never considered Maruthi or Hyundai due to saftey being my top priority. In the end I was told about Fiat Punto and I instantly liked it and got it in less than 10 days after booking amount. Hope TML will improve their ASS
and dealership experience. Thinking to write TML about my experience soon and ask about my booking amount.
Thanks guys for your valuable in puts, TAI
absolutely helped me not to fell for TML SAs tricks and helped me to get the best car.
