The 'Check ABS' message displayed on the central console along with a beep, the braking was normal but the wheels did lock up on hard braking. Eventually the service station found out that the front right wheel ABS cable was loose. They reconnected it and i was out of there in 5 mins, no problem thereafter.

I hope the route you took is from UNA to HAMIRPUR ( only part which is under construction ) and seeing the damage, i must say you were lucky to come out more or less scratch free and without any issues. Has you got your wheel balancing checked after that .

On a different note, Pleasantly surprised to see some good words about TATA / FIAT dealer ship from a linea owner. looks like FIAT / TATA are learning fast .

The noise was kind of grinding and squeaking while turning the steering end to end.

I have got the same problem in my car , will get it rectified in the next service.

Everything till date has been covered under warranty, i have not paid a single penny. Take it to the service station and point out the issue, this is quite common they will change the strut pads.

The front passenger door handle is a little hard. I can perhaps send it over to the service station to get that rectified. However, sending a week old car to the A.S.S somehow doesnt appeal to me.

Default re: Fiat Linea - Various niggling issues? Post your experiences here.

I have an Emotions Pack diesel Linea since April 2010 and which has clocked almost 23 K now. I have really enjoyed my time with Linea so far. However there is one issue that I wanted to discuss in this forum. It is about Linea's head lamps. I found them insufficient even on high beam and especially on (Indian) highways. I have tried talking to other Linea owners during my visit to service workshops but did not get any conclusive response on it. On the other hand Linea guy from Pune, Mr. Anand, who was in Techno workshop in Nazafgarh Delhi in relation to free Fiat checkup this month only has confirmed that Linea headlight follows ECE standard and is as per international norms. Has anyone here on Team BHP noticed this thing. I am planning to got to Himachal in May and will like to resolve this issue before I hit the highway again. Can someone help me with his experience and expertise on this.

I dont agree with the last post by anup_sh. The low beam is not very good but the high beam is fairly good in my opinion. If you want more brightness, upgrade your bulbs to Philips High power Ralley bulbs.

Someone had told me that changing the bulbs voids the warranty. Even in my Sx4 does not have much brightness. For city driving it serves the purpose but I have seen better brightness on other cars.

@anup_sh: Even though the low beam is not that bright, high beam is powerful, in fact the best in the segment I would say. The fog lamps also does a wonderful job. May be you could try adjusting the beam angle.

Anup_sh: Firstly get the beam angled higher or at the max position to increase the beam throw.

Secondly there are bulbs for the Low Beam (H7) from Osram (night breaker) and Philips (extreme power, not sure of this name). Buy a set and plonk them for the low beam. these do not require any wiring change as these are OEM spec.

High beam are already good enough on the Linea, if you still insist on getting them replaced with higher wattage, but that would require a different wiring, which I would suggest is not required.
