Finally my linea tastes the fruit

Had the much awaited alloy wheel change yesterday. removed the mild bend alloy rims from the right rear wheel and repleced with a new alloy rim. repleced the normal rim of the stephnie with the replaced alloy.

So as of now my linea is the first to have all her legs in alloys!!!


The wobbling wiper was replaced free of cost in warranty and as of now there is no wobbling but have to keep a watch

The door rattling was rectified as there was a screw with missing nut in the door pads which according to the technitian was the cause of the rattle. couldnt test it last night as such as it was raining.

Cost: 10762/- in total

Rs.10500 for the alloys + Rs 81 for the wheel balancing thingie which they have done for the new alloys + Rs 90 for labour

I have got a rapid windshied washing concentrate (wurth) which was available at the dealership. which tata uses in our wiper fluid tank which costed me 91 rs as i am due for a long trip next month to bangaluru.

Overall experience was 7.5/10 . the hassles were rectified and it is the first time i have come out smiling from the service station after 4 months of ownership and multiple never ending visits to TASS

The seat height issue is still unresolved. they dont have a clue about it. I really dont know what to do?. coolboy and others are also reporting this issue. why is fiat not waking up?. almost every one here has got this problem. why cant fiat rectify it for all of us?. does anyone have a clue as to what can be done?

Hey, TASS does not use that Wurth wiper fluid. atleast in my car, the advisor poured normal water in front of me.

Good to see you coming out of TASS smiling. Its long time since you faced the issues which were not getting solved

i have not made my mind boil over the small issues. as it is increasing my BP. I have made up my mind that i dont frequent TASS for petty issues and may be ill take my car once in 2 months after accumulating all issues and get it rectified all at once if it is small.
But still this seat issue is bugging and we dont get a proper reply here. the copr quality person whom you guys talk about , the people in chennai doesnt even know about his existence..........
I had told this manager about the seat issue when i went for the oil change . still he has not reverted back. he says he is still checking with fiat. He also says many others have complained. i really dont know which one is the truth. one thing for sure these chennai fellows dont have much expertise as the other TASS

Long back I decided it - not to go to TASS for smaller issues & get it accumulated. Now there are 2-3 issues accumulated Plus I think I'll be changing Engine Oil @ 7k Kms Plus Seat Height lever. So , now is the time to pay a visit to TASS, meet my dear friends & do this

Concorde Chennai uses "Clinic Plus" shampoo along with water.
I have seen this practise in Maruti (ABT) service centres too.

Wurth is only for sale. I am using it and its very good but a little expensive at Rs. 91 (one bottle for every 4 litres of water). In our cars, we could use it twice as our tank capcity is 2.5 litres.

Guys, is this the Blitz Reiniger thingy ? Its a small bottle with a orangish liquid in it. The reason I am asking is that it costs Rs.75/- for Indica !

yes. It is.
But the bottle price says Rs.85. The price might have increased

The label clearly says Rs 85 inclusive of taxes.

By law MRP is to include all local taxes including VAT.
