I plan to buy a new car by year end, so today decided to make a casual visit at nearest Tata-Fiat Dealer – A-One Motors to check the Fiat Linea Active FIRE (Petrol) Inside out.
Though by the year end there are much more new cars expected to roll out in this segment but personally, I like the big-car looks and neat Italian design of Linea at a much cheaper value, keeping aside the Sales and Servicing of Tata-Fiat, which I’m still doubtful about.
Now speaking about the actual part, when I stepped inside the showroom, The first impression was nothing great and the place looked to be somewhat small & congested with only two cars – Fiat 500 and Indigo Manza Quadrajet parked both the sides and a small reception table in just front, The showroom staff looked to be busy in themselves and it took couple of minutes to find the suitable person to speak with.
Suddenly, a sales girl asks from behind “How may I help you sir?” I asked for the Fiat Linea Active FIRE and just like other showrooms, First of all they noted down the contact details then asked me to take a seat and wait. Now…I’m waiting….and… waiting.
After sometime I see that dealer coming from the small space, He reaches to me with a smile on face telling about Linea and asks “So, You want to check the Active Petrol Model”, I happily answered Yes and he rolls the eyes saying “Errr…..I guess it is not currently available with us” giving the excuse of 2010 Model coming up. But after few minutes he tells to check top-end Emotion variant which was (supposed to be) parked outside and I agreed because as they say, something is better than nothing!
We went out side the showroom where only two cars – The Manza and Nano were parked. The confused dealer asks the security guard “Where has the Linea Emotion Gone??” and alas! Security guard answered “Sir, That Silver Linea has gone to Civil Lines for a drive by another customer”; now the dealer regretfully looks at my face and what else I could have said except “its okay”.
Getting inside the showroom again was pointless, so I just took a quick look at Manza which was parked outside and asked him the name of variant. Gosh! He replies - “Emotion......no no…it’s Quadrajet Aura!” I realized it was time for me to drive back and in the end, I asked for the brochure of Fiat Linea, He runs back to the showroom and within couple of minutes hands me over the brochure with complete price list of Tata-Fiat Vehicles.
So, I’ll conclude that admiration at A-One Motors was not really guaranteed but I sincerely hope it will be guaranteed with the product, if it ever comes to my home.
