Devarshi.the drive by wire system is only for the diesel variant and not the petrol ones.The petrol variants pretty much have a cable link between the accelerator pedal and Fuel injection pump, which regulates the quantity of fuel that is supplied to the engine.

This is how drive by wire works in the diesel -
Source- www.fiat-india.com

"In the case of the Palio Diesel we use an Accelerator Pedal Potentiometer. Driver inputs at the accelerator pedal position are converted into an electrical voltage signal and sent to the ECU by a potentiometer connected to the accelerator pedal.Thus the accelerator pedal inputs are processed together with other vital inputs from sensors which measure other critical parameters to provide precise injection timing and pressure. "So essentially,there is no cable link between accelerator and fuel injection pump.

And the clutch is a hydraulic clutch,which is pretty much common to most cars and the only gripe of the older palios (2001-early2002) was that the clutch pedal was a bit too hard for city driving.This problem had been rectified in later models and neither of my palios (2003-1.2 and 2003 1.6 S10) have this problem.sadly,most of the palios were sold in 2001 and 2002 so most of them have this hard clutch issue.

Adi gr8 choice................ I own 1.2 Sport (Apr 2005). I had taken the test drive of it few days back... Its awesome.... I was surprised by the pulling capacity of it at 20 -30 KMPH that too in 3rd and 4th gear... In first it feels lil sluggish but not as much with which you cant live.. If you are looking for more n more n more torque go for 1.6 Sport . But Adventure has unique and stunning look... Go for it and u will never regret your decision...

And ha dont forget to join us at : paliousersgroup@yahoogroups

Cheers

From what I have read, fiat has sold enough models for the customers to not worry about these problems. May it be petra, palio or the adventure.

Petra, Palio and Adventure all 3 share many common parts.. And Palio has been sold in descent numbers so dont worry on this front...
