    I had the same apprehension. However, I tested several vehicles and can tell that the AC is chiller in Chennai climate. I PDI'ed a vehicle yesterday and found that it is not chilling to the one I have seen earlier. However, yesterday it was scroching in chennai around 40 degree +. Also, MJD's never faced the problem. It is the petrol variants which were recalled and retrofitted.

    There was an issue of faulty O-ring in some of the 2011 manufactured cars, which lead to leakage of AC gas. Fiat have recalled and upgraded the O rings on the faulty cars and they problem have already been rectified.

    Dont worry deepak.AC upgrade was only for the Petrol variants and that too for 2009-10 models.The A/C in MJD is quite a chiller.Go ahead and enjoy ur car!! Hope u had a pleasant buying experience :)

    There is no problem except was in few lots in petrol which was readily changed by fiat.Its just noise by few people as they r sufferinmg from best word "VEH HUM" which can't be rectified..I never faced AC issue in my 2009 Linea MJD.
