Hi guys! Have a 2009 Linea MJD Epk (1290kgs, BSIII). I haven't written any ownership review yet. Will soon write it up. Until now, there has been absolutely '' 0 - issues '' with this beauty. No problems whatsoever! Not even single mechanical, nor a minuscule electrical fault. Except for rare denting and scratches, and also, for the famous 'rats' that chew up the ABS & Air-bag wires, it's been an absolute pleasure driving this beast all this time. Revvs clearly upto 4000rpm, and gives constant mileage of 20+ kmpl at highways. Maximum I got was 27.2kmpl, on Chennai-Pondy by-pass. But now, comes a urgency to know about FIAT's spare costs for older version of Linea MJD; All service costs for the past years were hardly notable, until the last service that was done 8 months back at 48,000kms, at Concorde Chennai, screwed up. Charged a hefty amount of Rs22,000 , and their service was not satisfactory at all! After that service, there was no notable change in the drive, except for the slight increase in engine clatter, when revved. As soon as the car clocked 62,900 kms, changed the tyres to MY-02 195/60/R15. Boy 'o' boy, what a difference that made! As always, filled up with nitrogen, & set the pressures to 33psi at front & 31psi at rear. And in no time clocked another 1k kms. Then came the time for 60k kms service. Unfortunately, excess of 4000kms had been done before leaving for the service; the car was occupied all throughout, so couldn't find time before 60k kms. Now, having left the car for 60,000kms service at Ramkay Fiat Chennai, on last friday, these were the issues I reported: Passenger side air-bag failure. (Rat's mess I suppose) Problem with USB port. Though, phones get charged, once anything that's plugged into USB port, Steering mounted audio controls go mayhem. (Again, rat should be the culprit) Replacement of rear sun curtain. (Completely torn, Rat rat rat, wonder what's the relation between FIAT's & Rats :irked) Excessive wind noise from driver side at speeds above 100kph. Right side of the horn pad wasn't working. Wiper's speed was slow. Excessive vibrations when moving the vehicle in first gear, at steeps. (Found this after my recent trip to nandi hills, B'lore) AC cooling wasn't as efficient as before. Though set at 21 deg, failed to cool the cabin @Chennai's temperature. Excessive engine noise intrusive during higher revvs. Suspension wasn't as good as before. Ran over some moderate pot holes too. So should have taken some hit. And today got a call from Ramkay. And was said that the whole clutch assembly has to be replaced. I did say that, the plastic clutch plates were replaced with metal ones long before. But he said, the whole clutch assembly has to be changed. Also, both the front suspensions have taken sufficient damage, & that it's necessary to change the whole set up. And regarding the battery, I was told that one cell, was low, and one more was critically low. Though I didn't get any notifications from the MID, nor I felt any difference from any electrical within the car, I was surprised to hear that a new battery has to be installed. I asked for a rough estimation of the cost split up, and I was quoted the following, for this service. [TABLE="width: 344"] <tbody> 1. BRAKE PAD 3300 2. BRAKE DISC 2500 3. INSULATOR PAD 1 SET 3000 4.

SERVICE 17000 TOTAL 54,100 + 9000 (service cost) </tbody>[/TABLE] Approximate total = Rs. 63,100 Now, is this normal? Or am I new to this kind of 60,000kms service cost!? NOTE: I'll put up my in depth ownership review soon, as I'm currently busy in my final year, with my GRE, TOFEL, & Placement stuff.
