great mileage there, that is the testimony for what italiaspeed.com has been saying, 1.3 90bhp VGT delivers more mileage than 1.3 75bhp FGT...

i am 100% sure you will be getting better & consistent mileage once odo crosses 5K kms..

Don't get worry drashkum,The car is really good.
Mine was having some problem and sorted out easily with VST service guys.
you can definitely enjoy the car moreover Petrol Linea is more silent than Diesel variant.
In my trip to pondi.i felt the car was more silent after 2000 rpm.
IMO,Once the run in period aka 3000kms is crossed,the engine will be running very smoothly.
You have mentioned that once the car crosses the 3000 km mark the engine will be smoother. But there is no oil change on the 1st service that is on 3000 kms. So how does the engine get smoother/silient??? And if there is no oil change how is the run in period ended????

I called up the Tata motors service center located at Worli, Mumbai and to my surprise the manager told me that there is no appointment required for Linea.

I tried to say,it might be running very smoothly once it runs some more kms.IMO it doesn't depend on Engine Oil.
some wear and tear makes the engine smooth.

The trip was very fun because of Linea.
The car was running like a dream and very smooth and got a very good FE.
I got exactly 20.7 kmpl with 100% Ac and with onboard 5 adults.
Driving was a pleasure and handling was very good.
Turning the car in 120 kmph was very well planted and no over or under steer.
I touched 140 Kmph @ 2750 rpm sometimes.
I felt the car was more silent after 2000 rpm.no thunder sound as it's a diesel war head.
The car was really pulling well but some turbo lag was exists.
But overtaking nominal speed vehicle was not a big deal.
AC was very good though i maintained 3 points in blower and 23 degree in auto mode.That day was sunny and i tripped between 12 and 3 pm.
Everyone onboard had enjoyed the trip a lot and planned for a trip to Tirunelveli, my hometown next month totally 1200 kms.
Linea is trully luxury
whoa thats a gr8 mileage run mate, surely it is a luxury on FIAT.Keep updating and drive safe.Hope your problems are sorted out.

Can you help me with the top speed of Linea petrol which has been achieved.

I m not talking about the claimed top speed but the actual speed achieved.

And is it that my car will achieve the top speed faster and more easily after the first service...

Nope.
I planned to add it after a year once the current seat cover is soiled.
In Chennai,we have Stanley in kadhar nawaz khan Road and Haiton in Anna Nagar for Leather Seats.

Karthik did you manage to get body colored parking sensors or got them painted ? I too am thinking about installing parking sensors but don't want to go with black ones, they look like someone punched a black hole in the bumper.
