Hello Friends. I am on the verge of buying a new sedan. I test drove the 2012 Linea MJD and Volkswagen Vento TDI. Never considered Fluidic Verna. No offenses but the interiors were not up to the mark and the low seating was a big let down. I have a few queries to current Linea owners: Everyone's talking about 1.3 MJD. I mean we all know it was voted as the best diesel engine in the world. The test drive left we wanting for more, more power and torque. See I actually test drove Vento and then Linea. Vento's engine was addictive but everything else about the car was all about cost-cutting. The steering was dead, completely numb. I can't tell you, how much I hate those electronic power steering. While in the Linea, moving on 1st gear and shifting to 2nd and then to 3rd requires effort from the driver as well as from the engine; power wise. During the shifts, I felt quite a considerable amount of engine noise getting into the cabin. This happened when I revved it hard to see how much pull the engine can provide. Is this rumble normal to all Lineas? If not, then will this engine's rumble die down as the engine opens up? I would like to know how much effort a driver has to put while overtaking? I mean do you have to plan to make the move on the roads? Is it difficult in bumper-to-bumper traffic? I am asking all these questions because currently I am driving 2001 Indica V2 DLS. The car is very slow, requires planning at every move you make on the road. It's just the 19-21 mileage is worth the drive from point A to B. It's been with me since 2001 and consistently it has provided me with fabulous fuel efficiency figures with no mechanical hiccups. However, now I am looking for a diesel that will fun to drive. I don't want another car which is same as my 11 year old Indica DLS. I don't want to plan my moves on the highway, I have my Indica for that . I hope you are getting my point. Vento has the engine that I am looking for, but everything else doesn't impress me much. Especially the steering, the interiors, exterior, features...Linea ticks all the right boxes for me, but it's "NATIONAL ENGINE" what makes me a bit reluctant, if seen from driveability viewpoint.
