Seagull76, Congrats for owning the beauty! Nice color choice and looks like a solid ICE Setup.

Default Quick Update 5000Km done

A Quick Update

Successfully Completed 5000km in 5 Months. Extremely happy with my linea.Had some scratches and a dent on the running board (due to hit on the pavilion )

Listed below some niggling issues in my linea

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 about this during first free service. The Door Lock was changed ( as per the bill ) ,now it has resurfaced again :(,

2. During a trip to Chennai,suddenly the horn stopped working. After sometime it started working again. Informed this issue to the SA during the free service . As per the report horn works properly. This issue has resurfaced after the free service ,complained it to the dealer but no solution for this from the dealer

3. For the past one week, some rattling sound is coming during the normal speed 30-40Km/h ( near the Left Front Door ).
Any idea what will be the reason for this ?

I think this is a generic problem with Linea. The Linea niggling issues thread has many owners complaining about the same.

Default Linea - First Birthday

Mini Review for my LINEA in its 1st Year Birthday

Itís been a year driving my linea. Fully satisfied with the car and happy that I made a right decision in buying this car.

KMs covered :- 9500km ( 80% Highways, 20 % City Drive )

Best Mileage Returns:- 26.6 km in Highways
15.6 km in City

Like :-

1.Great Leg Space,Boot Space
2. Very Stable in Highways
3. Mileage
4. Comfort

DisLike:-

1.Should be in the right gear for good pickup
There had been some niggling issues in my Linea from the day onea) A/C Cooling not effective ( in Chennai )
b) Remote Key Not Working properly
c) Horn Stops Working temporarily in Highways
d) Left Rear Door not opening properly from Outside

These Issues had been reported to Concorde Motors and escalated to Fiat India. They checked it and informed me that it had been rectified, but still I am having these issues now and then.


1st Year Birthday Gift to my Linea:- Leather+PU Seats

Done by Haiton Leathers,Chennai.

The seat material is a combination of Leather (front sides of the seats ) + PU ( back sides of the seats ). They call it as Touch leather.However I canít distinguish between the leather & PU

Enclosed some of the snapshots of the seats for the review

The upholstery looks good and matches with the interiors. The rear door lock not working is a common niggle with the Linea. My colleague's Linea is also having the same problem and Fiat people have still not found a solution for it.
