Congratulations and best wishes, Naparajito, on becoming a proud owner of a lovely Linea. The photographs are nice.

I have driven my Linea for about 22 k km across 11 states/UT of India. Except in Karnataka, my Linea didn't bottom-scrape anywhere else.

@J.Ravi-Thanks.
That's true because the speed breakers in Karnataka are huge only a SUV has got some relief.

I don't think that will help much in Bangalore. The speed-breakers we have in Bangalore are absolute non-sense. I usually don't have a problem when there are only 2 in the car. But If the car is loaded with 4+ passengers, however slow I go over the bump, whatever angle I approach it from, the car still gets scratches in the belly at times.

Default Re: Fiat Linea MJD Boss(a) Nova White - 2000 kms Initial Ownership Report

Hello everyone. My car has completed 2000kms and few things i've noticed are-
1)A.c has stopped working.
2)When you release the clutch, there's some rattling noise.
3)USB port has stopped recognizing pen drives.
4)Rear ac vent has come out without any reason.

Mileage in city is about 16kmpl so far.

All but the 3rd one are disappointing to hear. Did you take it for a check yet? I hope they are not big ones. As far the USB port issue, the electronics ones are bound to fail all the time. That's one of the reason I wanted to keep the music system I already had and trusted.

Only positive (no pun intended) seems to be the mileage.

At last my problem was resolved by Concorde Motors, Dairy circle today. They were just brilliant. Mr. Khan(9008318038) and his team
(Mr. Vitthala 944955595)are excellent in customer handling. He firt heard the problems and said us not to worry, everything will be done within 2-3 hours. They replaced a "O" ring in the ac system, and the problem was resolved.
Then the rattle, it was resolved by them. The USB port started working again as they re-installed the software.
The rear Ac vent was also replaced by them.

Note:
please avoid Green Tracks Service centers as they are the worst in this business. They are just good for nothing. Yesterday, they took my vehicle for service but they did not even touch the car. In fact they were arguing with my dad that it was our fault that we gave the car on monday.

Please avoid them!

That's good to hear, mate. So, they didn't charge you anything for the fixes, did they?

Hello everyone!
My car has reached its first checkpoint, i.e. for the 1st service. Had been to Kerala with 5 people on-board and I'm truly satisfied with the car and it's performance. The total kilometers traveled was around 19xx and the average mileage i got was 14.9 km-pl. The average speed maintained was around 120kmph. The car is effortless around the corners and handles the twisters perfectly. The car did scrap once in Bangalore itself, but nowhere else. The 3rd gear is just amazing, rev it hard and there she starts flying. It pulls all the way up-to 110kmph. The top speed achieved was 165kmph as we were out of straight road. It took jus 2 days to cover the distance and it did with ease. This car is a perfect highway machine. It has been just 1 month 16days from when we had bought the car and now have covered 5000kms.

There has not been any problem and i'm fully satisfied with the car and it's performance. Will post few pics soon.
Cheers,
Naparajito

Naparajito,

Belated Congrats, i missed your thread completely.
I think you have read my post reg. Race Chip Tuning Box.
Now the car is leaping like a cheetah once it goes beyond 2000 rpm in 3rd gear.
Really i am addicted to third Gear.
Wherever possible, i push my car to the limit.
Definitely I'll get a very low mileage for this time for sure

But marginal increase in Engie Noise is very evident.
The roaring sound, once the turbo wakes, is really joy to hear.
Even my friends also felt the power and sound change from the Engine.
