    Did you/your friend try to compare T-Jet+ with Civic?

    For the comparison between Linea T-Jet and Honda CIvic, visit this link - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-driv ... hread.html

    That guy sold off his Honda Civic and bought home a Fiat Linea :D

    No he did not try to compare. However, i drove the civic and it had an AT box, Power is awesome and enjoyed the drive.

    I test drove Civic and T-Jet B2B during my selection process. Honestly, the feel that you get in Civic is a class apart. The acceleration, the interior feel and the comfy seats.. WoW, they are. But comes at a cost of 5 laks more. So I feel, its kind of difficult to get these two in one basket and compare.

    Its better to say T-Jet is best this side of 10Laks!

    +1 to that

    Just a small example is illuminated sill-plates with blue color Civic , The dash board gives a feeling of cockpit.

    The area where Linea scores the most is the BUILD QUALITY (the thud feel)

    Vasu, this is going on like a soap opera.
    Every day, twice i check this thread to see if there is a decision made.

    Goahead and book both MJD & TJet.
    Tjet for Highway and MJD for city use. Create history by owning 2 Linea's at the same time ::T

    till today i dint blindly tell you to go for MjD. i have just returned from a 600 km trip. today i can confidently tell you, MjD has hell lot of power.

    speak of 4th and 5th gear on the highway and its a brutal machine. it put shame to ford fiestas, NHCs and many big cars.

    a ford fiesta was acting too smart trying to get close to the bumper, flashing lights and all. it was loaded with fundu guys enjoying a lot. then i decided to show the ford fiesta where it belongs too. i stepped on the accelerator saw an empty stretch with full confidence on the lineas handling and braking i just zoomed across the fiesta @165 KMPH. he could not match me for hell lots of distance. then i let him pass away and he dint mess with me again. his friends might be teasing him shame shame :)

    same i did with a NHC who was trying to be smart with the worst handling car.

    covered a dist of 250 km in 2.48 hours . AND here comes icing on the cake. Mileage 22.4 KMPL.

    no question TJET is a stonker but MJD is no less with the mileage and economy of diesel.

    I just had a 1.3 MJD test drive. There was an issue with AC, it was completely not working.

    The 1.3 is not a slow coach (Power is better than my Palio 1.2) , it has enough power to pull the beast and i am telling this in Bangalore traffic conditions. I'm happy with the power, quickly realised, just keep the engine in the 1500-3000 RPM Band and play with the gear box. Engine noise was audible despite closing all the four windows.

    The only concern is, will there be any reduction in power if we use the AC ?

    The dealer might give around 50K discount for the 2010 model, just one question, are there any new features added to the 2011 mode ?

    Even the 2010 model, i will try to get Nov/Dec not beyond that. Else will go for 2011 model.

    Rite now 1.3MJD is okay for me. Will let you know once I book the car.

    1.6 MJD might hit the market before end of this year as per sales rep (I have my own doubts)

    THANKS A TON TO ALL FELLOW TF'ns FOR ALL THE HELP

    Regards

    AC issue might be because of an old and choked pollen filter. I don;t think they service their TD cars according to the schedule and don't even replace Pollen filters etc.

    I don't think there are any upgrades to the 2011 models(I haven't heard of any) but have read and observed the following:

    1. A "KNZ" Oct 2010 manufactured Punto 1.2 Active had negligible panel gap around the keyhole. They have improved the plastics and reduced panel gaps further since the T-JET lauch IMO.
    2. Read somewhere that a Nov 2010 bought Punto had tweeters. Are Component speakers back in Linea/Punto? The speakers with tweeters sound much better than those without (based on my own comparison with a Feb 2010 Linea).
    3. AC upgrade w.e.f.October 2010.
