    Hi

    I see gear knob rattling and making nosie in 3rd gear,dissapointed whether it is a defect in a 4 days old car or is it common in Fiats.

    Does it lead to any technical problem in near future if i drive car with this issue or is it fine.

    I got i checked at 2 service centers.

    One of the service advisor tell me that its a common problem in 2014 vehicles.

    Another SA tells me that we will login a complaint with Fiat as we have seen couple of such issues in recent past.

    Finally FASS will login a complaint if they find any solution to it they will recall the vehicles and fix it.:(

    @Dinesh Reddy I have 2014 New Linea (T-Jet Dynamic) and did not experience gear lever wobbling/ rattling in my jet. This is not a common issue, pursue FASS till they get a resolution.

    I had the same issue in my MJD Linea. They worked out with greasing the gear cable and stuff, It is better but not 100% fixed.

    It is not common with FIAT vehicles. Insist on the FASS to register the complaint. You can also ask to take a test drive of a vehicle similar to yours in terms of manufacturing and mileage!

    This is not common, is it happening only in 3rd gear?

    The gear shift mechanism is cable driven in our cars. (image courtesy 99 RPM).
    Ask them to replace the shifting mechanism if needed.

    I had same issue where gear lever is vibrating in all gears. Initially it started in 4th gear and slowly I am able to hear this rattling noise in all gears when rev more than 2000rpm. Taken to FASS they changed gear lever under warranty for first time and problem rectified. But again started after some time in 3rd gear and 4th gear. Taken to FASS re fitted gear cable and problem went off for short period.

    Today vibration is there in 3rd gear but not as severe as earlier times. Even KHT told me that some vehicles built in 2014 having this issue which they have registered issues with FIAT.

    Unfortunately this cannot be checked in FASS. We need drive in empty roads to understand this vibration.
