I don't know whether it's a feature in Linea.when ever it reaches Low Fuel it automatiicaly cuts off compressor for Fuel saving.

I got a good scratch in the Bumper due to a hit in the stone laid in the road side.
Didn't see it properly in the narrow road.FATE

Some notorious child tried his hands on painting in my Right Front & Rear doors.
No idea how to fix it.

Tomorrow i plan to go to VST for fixing Bonnet and someother issues.
have to speak with paint booth inchanrge and try to fix the scratches without burining my pocket.

Enjoy and Drive Safe
Compressor auo cut-off - never faced this. Infact, there are times i have driven with very low fuel in my car but never experienced it.

Scratches - sorry to hear that. fix it fast.

Everything is going on smoothly except some malpractice in Central Locking.Fixed it last week.

Still Bonnet issue is not fixed and seems a FIAT Engineer is posted for Tamilnadu region.
Plan to show him the issue along with Sidha,TSM,TATA.
VST is now improving a lot in Servicing and I am their deary now and know almost all in their Service Station.(Courtesy : 'n' No:Of visits)
planning another Native & AP Trip this month.
Before buying Linea i thought that completing 30K mark in 2 years is a big task.
Now i realized it's a very job to achieve that and more much earlier than 2 years.
Enjoy parenting Both SilverStreak - My Car and Tarun - My Boy

Enjoy and Drive Safe.

Congrats Karthik !

I too reached the milestone in my Petrol Linea a month back.
Agree with you on the extra miles run. I completed 20K in my earlier cars in 2 years but with linea it was just 1 year and few days.

Congrats karthik. What was that problem with your central locking you have mentioned earlier. I too am facing an issue with it. Some times the locking system seems to malfunction. When I try to lock or unlock the car, it just wont work. Mine have crossed 13500km. Planning to raise the issue when I take the car for service.

Even I have the same issue. But I think its with the key and not with the locking system. Sometimes I cannot unlock the car with the key. But once it starts working it goes on without any problem. I was supecting the battery inside the key. But can the battery die down so fast? In my Palio the remotes battery lasted for about three years.

Once you get into Linea it is really grows on you. I have completed 7400Kms in last 3 months and at this rate I belive 20K kms will be a matter of 9 months. Linea owners are a boon to Indian Petroleum industry

Reg. Central Locking System,Some malfunction happened in controller(forgot the name of the device) and it's changed and now i don't face any issue till date.

Another issues i have been facing last 2 days is,
Rear Left power windows is not working properly sometimes.
One touch operation is not operated rarely.no idea about the issue.
Heard some strange sound while operating the window.
need to check it in Service Station when i visit there.
Hope it won't be big problem.

Might be going to VST Service Station tomorrow to speak with Balaji from FIAT and inspecting my car bonnet bulges.

Got an Accident at guindy near Indian Bank with a Private Bus P.R.R Transport fleet services for so many companies in Chennai.
Small scratches in left rear above wheel arch.
He got out after drop some people and moved my lane without any hesitation as my car was ahead him.
I felt a bounce inside the car and left the car there and checked the damages.but i was not able to evaluvate it as the bus was almost climbing in my car rear wheel arch.
so moved the car to the side of the road and ask the bus driver to come down.
After checking a small peel and a lot of Blue color paint of the bus all over the wheel arch.
I got tensed and asked him to call his manager Mr,Parthiban.
He was very adamant and said his company has some policy they eventfully spent some 1000 or 1500 max and will be given to me once they will inspect my car.
I was very furious and asked him to come to the place where the accident happened or i won't leave your bus.
He replied,he doesn't have any issues as his trip is scheduled for next morning only.
I gave a replied imm that i'll rent a person to watch your bus not to move or call a police and handover the driver and bus and i don't care if my car also been stationed in police custody.
After that only he came down and promised me sent person immediately.
I had a chat with the driver and he told in humble voice that the money is levied from his salary and realized his error.I planned to file FIR but after pleading from the driver i changed my mind.
So i advised him and left the place with heavy heart.
I got his number and his manager number.
Now-a-days chennai traffic is very worst

The car is very strong to withstand such an accident by a bus.
Long Live Linea.
