Concorde people advised my friend that going for after market ICE will void warranty of Linea! is it true? Did they gave same funda to you as well?

Kindly advise!

Thanks for the wishes NutsNBolts.I am enjoying my drive in linea.

One minor issue in linea is the dead pedal angle . Hope I will get adjust to that quickly

Congrats seagull for the lovely Linea. Fiat has designed such lovely damsels for the roads. The interiors are somewhat different for BS4 Linea. Shades of beige here and there.
Great average figures you are getting from your car.
Wishing you lots of happy miles with the Italian cruiser.

Default First Service Done

My Linea completed 3K (before 3 months ) and was due for the first service last week

Booked the slot two weeks before in concorde motors,diary circle.

I had two issues in my linea so far

1. Left Rear Door not opening smoothly/properly from outside. Had this issue from the first week ( I didn't do the PDI properly ) and got fixed it from the dealer. It resurfaced again and informed service adviser ( Mr.senthil ) about this. After the service,door opens smoothly till date,hope it won't resurface again (hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things.. )

2. During my recent trip to Chennai,suddenly the horn stopped working. After sometime it started working again. Informed this issue to the SA and after the service he told that it's because of loose wire connection

Service bill amount was 0.0

Congratulations. Fiat Linea is definitely a great buy. FE you are getting is good. Regarding the door not opening properly I think it is a minor problem and can be done in the first service. Nice photos. One question I want to ask is that you have placed subwoofer in the boot. Does it eats up the storage space or it is not a problem?

Congratulations on buying the Linea. Even now, every time I look at one, I do a double take and look at it again. This car looks delightful.. The colour you've chosen is a fantastic one as well.

Now, this might seem odd, but I think you should get rid of the black tbhp sticker. Before I am accused of blasphemy, I'd say that replace it with the other one which has just the text saying team-bhp.com in black font. It's just that this one seems too large.

Thanks HappyRoadie.The boot space is huge in linea. The subwoofer doesn't eats up the storage place at all

Hi Karthik,

Thanks . I am a regular reader of your thread.

The ICE setup was around 30K

The boot space is huge in linea. During the ICE setup , technician was able to sit comfortably inside the boot.
