In my city, Fiat has released an advt for Linea announcing some discounts with a fine print, "offer applicable only for 2009 Linea; this offer is also available on 2010 Linea for an additional Rs. 8000,"

May be not entirely OT but its related to Fiat A.S.S.
After I bought my car I visted twice to concorde in the past two months. Once to get mudflaps part of freebies and other recently to allign a dislodged rear bumper after an Alto rear ended my Punto.

Everytime I get two phone calls after I am done, one from local concorde Bangalore and the other from Tata motors Pune asking for feedback on repair/service experience in detail with ratings.
And the guy from Pune started off once in Hindi and 2nd time in Kannada (since I am a Bangalore customer i suppose)

is it just with me or everyone gets these calls?

My friend has bought Linea and he too gets calls, at least 1 call per 2 months from Fiat asking for feedback regarding service experience.

Really pisses me off at times.

Good move by FIAT if they really improve the quality. I went to a nearby TATA-FIAT showroom to check GP and linea. Earlier I had an admiration towards these products. But seeing the bad fit finish, I was really disappointed. The lock of the hatch door was out of place and rust already in the engine bay for the showroom vehicle. Ofcourse the solid door, body panels were not seen in any other cars of its class. But this cheap quality is disgusting for a customer who is ready to pay 6lacs on a hatch.
The door shut (3 step) was the nice part on this product. It really feels solid compared to a TATA vista.
Want to see the socalled 2010 Lineas and GPs fit and finish.
Friends please put some good resolution photos of a 2010 GP's inside parts.
Thanks..

I used to get calls from Concorde and some Tata call center when i used to own a Indica Turbo after each service. ONce i even complained that the AC knob is quite tight and is hard to operate after the 2nd service. They immediately got me connected with a Concorde Service advisor and he came to my home and fixed the issue. That was some customer service!

Times have changed. Good service is now a necessity and not a luxury!

Pics of 2010 Linea, excuse the less than stellar quality taken from 2.0 megapixel mobile cam. Its a 1.4 FIRE emotion (not emotion pack) petrol, so alloys are standard.

The interior plastics are much improved and at last feel better, you have to see it in real life to judge it. Pics do not do justice.

The paint finish is also better, so does the reduced NVH (claimed).

Music system is blaupunkt, but this one does not have blue and me. Do not get carried away by that front door panel gap because the door was not shut properly be me.

Sid, What's that 'New Model' sticker in one of the pics? Do the 2010 models now come with that sticker ?
