Default Update about Sluggishness Issue experienced after recent service

Car was feeling very sluggish after last service done in Oct-15. Earlier on place surface I could get the car moving upto 25-30 KMPH (without foot on gas pedal) just by moving up the gears and letting Turbo keep her running nicely. All that had vanished, was feeling as if car has put on weight and had to downshift too frequently to move the car, overtaking and general driving had become very uninspiring.

Immediately reported issue to R S Motors folks, however, haven't had chance to visit them until last week.

Went to R S Motors last week, SA took TD and said everything seems ok to him, but I said no, something is wrong and narrated my uninspiring driving experience. Asked him to check if any hoses/pipe have come out. He said he will get is checked physically and also check for any errors connecting diagnostic PC.

Everything as far as pipe/hose connections was ok. Then diagnostic PC was connected, where, they saw some "Clutch Switch error message", having done TD of car he was certain there is no issue with clutch, also, there was no warning light or any message appearing on Car Instrument Panel, hence, the error message was removed/deleted from the system. All this took about 1 hour.

Took the delivery of vehicle, and, boy-o-boy, she got her zeal, energy and acceleration back as earlier.

While it was a minor issue, think it means lot for passionate T-Bhp Fiat owners in particular and car owners in general , hence, for their benefit thought of sharing the experience. Hope members find it helpful/useful.

Bye for now, take care!
