I have bought a Linea MJD Dynamic 2012 June manufactured, in November 2013. I had done a detailed PDI along with one of our members Vj_v1. I have got the following replaced from the dealer. 1. All fluids 2. Battery 3. There was small patch of rust on the bonnet edge and a small paint chip on the left rear door handle. Got them fixed. On the day of delivery I exchanged the stock tyres and got 195/65 R15 Yoko DBs It has run close to 12k kms so far and have done 3 highway trips. The longest being to Kodaikanal (~1100 kms one way) which I drove in a single stretch. No issues faced so far (touchwood). I have got the engine oil, oil filter and air filter changed when my car clocked ~7.5k kms (IIRC). You are supposed to get the 3+2 yrs warranty and I suggest not to take the car without it. The 3 yr warranty will be applicable from the date of purchase and its given by Fiat so dealer should not have an issue with it. They might deny extended warranty but please insist on it. I have got 3+2yr warranty. My OTR was 9L.
