Guys, my Linea completes 3 months tomorrow (17th). It has completed 2600 kms. I wanted to take it for service this weekend but now due to another engagement I may not be able to make it this weekend. Is it ok if I take it for service the next weekend (28th)? Will there be any issues?

Hi Achinthg,

Last time when I had been to the service center for a quick repair, I enquired with them about the service dates and the kms run. He said anything between 2500 to 3500 kms if is fine for servicing, but I believe the date should be within the 3 months time frame. I would suggest you get it done before this weekend.

Kodi is right. The date has to be within 3 months.

Called Prerana Motors to check about the service. The lady who answered has no idea if I can do it the next week. Did not want to take any chance so I booked it for this Saturday.

Check with the Sankol(CRM) about the servicing. You can refer my name(Vasanth). If it helps its good..

I know the guy. I talked to him when I visited TASS to get a dent removed when I had a minor accident.

Great looking car !! Medium grey looks as good as flamenco red and hip hop black.

Vasant, thanks for Sankol's number. Don't know if I want to call him as I have already altered my plans and booked the service this Saturday.

There is no problem. A little +/- in both mileage and time can always be adjusted by the service centre. We gave ours at 3400 km and 3 months and about 2 weeks.

I got the first service of my Linea done yesterday and here is the report:

I was asked to come around 9 to 9:30 AM. I reached Prerana TASS at 9:35 AM. There is only one SA for Fiat cars (I think) and there were 4 Fiats for service - 1 Palio, 1 Punto and 2 Lineas. I was asked to sit in the A/C customer waiting room with TV. I was attended at 9:55 AM. The SA Surendra asked me if any problems and here is the list I gave him:
1. Engine noise is on the higher side.
2. Black smoke from exhaust.
3. Pickup is less at 5 to 10 minutes at startup.
4. Some vibration noise from the left side of the dashboard sometimes.

I was asked to come back at 5:30 PM to pickup the car. At 3:30 PM I got a call saying the car is ready and can come and pick it up. I reached TASS at 5:30 PM. SA took be to my car got the dust removed and the tyres polished.

For problem number 1,2 & 3 he got the engine connected to a computer to find errors and there were some errors reported which he got fixed.

For problem number 4 he said there was something loose in the HVAC and he has got it fixed.

The total cost for the service for Rs.0.

One sour point though: I forgot to remove the CD from the player and in the evening the CD was missing, when I asked the SA about it he checked with security who did the inventory but they had no idea. So, guys ensure you remove all media from the ICE before giving it for service.

Good to hear that your service went off well. The main thing is that they were able to find and solve all the issues that you had told them. That is what I want to see from the service centres- prompt action and delivery on or before time.
So did you notice any difference in the engine after the service?
