That is quite a bad shunt. Good to see the car has absorbed the impact well and you're safe. These Hit & Run fellows deserve to be shot.

Its very sad to see the car in this state.

However, its very remarkable to see the Linea take the hit and still keep the occupants safe.

Wondering if the City or Dezire would have been able to take this sort of a hit and still keep the occupants safe?

Thank god the occupants are safer post such a tragedy!Some body really hit the nail on its head when the talked about the "Tijori" like build .

As regards the expenses ,it must be around 10k and rest borne by the Insurance.

Metal Parts + Denting & Painting + Labour will be borne by the Insurance.
50% of Plastic will be paid by you.
On seeing you picture, Only the Rear Left Light , Bumper , Bumper Silver cladding have to be replaced.

Your share approximately:

Rear Left Light - Rs. 1500
Bumper - Rs. 2000
Bumper Silver cladding - Rs.500
Other plastic consumables - Rs. 500

So it comes around Rs. 5000 only.
if you spend restircted to Rs.5000, Definitely i need a BIG Treat

The cost of the silver Cladding is ~2000.
Rear light is ~1850
Bumper is ~3500

Your share will be ~ 3750/-

Dear Geeash, sorry to see your car in this shape - but once repaired, it will come out dazzling anyway, that's where build quality shows.

I am a new member and I have read through your complete ownership report in a few sittings - commencing that day when you bought this beauty home.

Have been living the joys and sorrows with you on owning a FIAT !

Now that I am a member, hope to be an active participant in your long running post. Keep us updated about the repairs.

Venue: Ponnerikarai ( kanjchipuram district)

Occasion: While travelling Back to chennai from bangalore for vacation

Time: 3PM

Type: Hit and Run. Speeding collision on rear side, when i was standing to change lanes on NH due to a bus break down. Vehicle came and banged me at almost 100kmph speed

Demon Vehicle: Tata Maxi Cab TN -18-H-1712

Damage: Extensive Damage to boot / Rear both tail lights/ Rear Bumper/RHS rear door

Let the picture speak for themselves

The Demon


My car









Filed a FIR and they have traced the vehicle. Have got the Damage certificate and has dropped the vehicle at VST body shop poonamalee. The Future Generali people were prompt enough to survey it today morning itself.

Lucky Escape for me and my family because of the tank like build
Sad to see a car damaged...

Pretty similar damages like my colleague's flamingo red linea had suffered. He was involved in a 5 car crash some months back.
The total repair cost for him was some 60k if i remember correctly.
After repairs we can hardly see any signs of the accident.

Please do post your car's snaps after repairs.

Bloody concord cheaters charged me 12k for just a broken bumper replacement and paint job last time remember !!

Where my calculation went wrong?
Some 2k increase from my calculation.
Anyhow you seems to be very happy.
Please check each & every repaired area thoroughly before taking delivery in bright sunlight.
