Default Re: Clutch Slave Cylinder replacement in Linea - Cars Recalled

How very fortunate we were today , me and my family with our 2 month old daughter were returning from Mysore and well guess what, as I drove into the parking space by the side of the road at Kamat Lokaruchi , Ramnagaram my clutch bailed out on me! A total dead pedal!! What if this happened while I was on the highway driving at speeds in excess of 80kmh no where close to civilization!

The fortunate part, I could call for a taxi and send my family home safely while I expected to wait for 2 hours for a tow truck or a mechanic, and fortunately a mechanic from the Mysore road dealer was kind enough to ride out all the way to the point with the part in hand and fixed it on the spot, however I did have to tip him generously for his service.

Wish Fiat which was aware of this issue had been a lot more aggressive with its dealers or proactive in taking the lead and informing its 2009 customers asking them to come in for a replacement rather than depend on its dealership network to communicate! I love my Linea , no doubt about it, but am a tad bit disappointed as well...

Nopes I don't think it has been. The Linea is not our primary drive its meant only for outstation drives. Its done just 14,000 kms and its the petrol version!

Hi Guys,

I need some expert advise, One of my friend is facing problem with his Linea, Seems like the car is posing problem while picking-up. As per him, there is some problem with turbo charge unit , Not working as expected.

After consulting FASS (Jay-Vijay motors, Shivaji Nagar,Pune), they said the whole clutch plate unit need a replacement as its has worn off completely.

Is it possible for a car which is just one year old and cloaked only 10K KM ?
