Congrats on this car!!! I think it's absolutely brilliant and quite sensible.

Recently, we test drove the Fiat Linea T-jet through some pretty horrible roads, and I was completely blown away by the mind-blowing suspension. The cabin is comfortable and quiet, and one feels like they're cruising through the quaint Italian countryside.

I loved the speedo display - the white with silver trimmings is classic and a joy to behold - I noticed that your version has the same. And the boot-space is fantastic isn't it? 500 litres of freedom. And surprisingly, this car doesn't scrape all the speed breakers in Bangalore - even with 4 fairly hefty dudes in the car.

All in all, this car is my recommendation for the 10 lakh best buy!!!

Thanks, Anarchy83, for nice words about my Linea. Even with 5 adults, my Linea does not bottom-scrape in Bangalore as humps/speed-breakers are now constructed scientifically in a trapezoidal section comprising up ramp, flat followed by down ramp. Even if it scrapes, nothing to worry, the entire impact is absorbed by the sturdy engine guard. That's my experience so far.

When above 70/80 kms speed, Linea start to make 'boooooming' sound. I think it is normal only.
But isn't common to all Lineas?

Smile Cara Mia Fiat Linea Is Worshiped.

Yesterday, my Linea got a grand bath, first shampooing followed by water-wash. Today, she was worshiped on the occasion of Ayudha Puja and also for safely bringing us home after our Leh expedition. My Suzuki Fiero gave company.

Smile Cara Mia Fiat Linea Celebrates Her Second Birthday Today!

My Linea celebrates her second birthday today. But, the birthday girl remains at home taking the much-needed rest after strenuous Leh expedition. However, she was kind enough to pose for a few photographs on this joyous occasion.

She has done jaw-dropping 35,380 km in these two years. My previous vehicles MS Omni/Versa did far less than this at their second birthdays as they had not gone beyond south India.

The following were some of the destinations of my Linea apart from numerous trips to Chennai/Pondy:

Here are the links to my travelogues of my mega trips thanks to my Linea:

(Leh in a Linea)The Leh Expedition

(If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Agra!)The Mega West/North India Trip

(My Fiat Linea's tryst with Goa/Mahabaleshwar/Mumbai/Pune)The Great Goa/Mahabaleshwar/Mumbai/Pune Trip

(Cara Mia Fiat Linea!)My Linea Visits Tamil Nadu Temples, Churches, Falls & Beaches

(Cara Mia Fiat Linea!)My Linea's Kochi/Kayankulam Visit

On this happy occasion, I wish my Linea many more thrilling and adventurous destinations in the coming years!

Many many congratulations to you & warm birthday wishes to your beauty. Wishing her a long, healthy, troublefree life & hope she takes you to various nooks & corners of this vast country without any fuss.

So what is the birthday gift for your FTA Linea? I am sure she has already given you the return gift in the form of your successful Leh epedition

Thanks for the kind wishes, AutoIndian. My Linea is still not free from home-sickness! She remained at home on her birthday too.
