The Uno had a 1700CC diesel engine whereas the Siena had the turbocharged version of the same engine.

Congratulations Sammy on owing "Linea"
Work through the useful rev range. (>2000~3000 rpm) for best torque figures.

Thanks you all, really appreciate your comments and feedbacks. Overwhelmed actually. Yes I'll definitely be posting pics but pl bear with me, just that I'm busy ironing out a few problems. And the answer to which 1700cc I drove prior to the Linea is the UNO. I still do. A phenomenal car in my books.

By the way I received a call from the FIAT CUSTOMER CARE CENTER in Italy asking me questions regarding the car. I was on the phone for 45 whole minutes. Man are those Fiat dudes brushing up their act. Did anyone get a similar call? I also get a phone call from the Fiat guys here everytime I take the linea to the service center. Sure says a lot I guess.

Sammy, Even I received a call from FIAT CC from China. I think its a surveying company and they asked about each detail about the car. The dealership and Tata-fiat CC does call after every service or after every visit to ensure you were happy.

Hey do you know mandarian(Chinese Language) or they spoke english. Been to china and it is hard for me to believe FIAT uses BPO from China that too for survey from Indian Customers. Quite funny is it. But it is nice FIAT is serious about its image to improve.

Don't know why they chose to call me from China. But the country code on my incoming call was +86. I asked the rep which country he is calling from. He said calling from Minda (or something like that) Consultants a survey company from China.
