I had delivered my Fiat Linea KL-08-AQ-4567 to Hyson Motors, Thrissur on 25[SUP]th[/SUP] September 2012 with the complaint of clutch not engaging while changing gear and also very low pick-up. The car was kept for one day and returned to me on 26[SUP]th[/SUP] September 2012 after rectification. But when I arrived home, the electronic remote key was not functioning; all the information on the driver panel was changed; like the dates was showing year 2005. I immediately informed the Service adviser. In the evening I received a call from Hyson motors to know the performance of the car and I informed them about these as well. On 28[SUP]th[/SUP] I had gone to a hospital with my wife and while returning at 11.00 am the car wouldn’t start at all. I tried several means, but with no luck. I informed the roadside assistance and they arrived at 5.00 pm and even they couldn’t start the car and it had to be towed to Hyson motors. A car from a world class manufacturer and to see it being towed away was really heart breaking. On 29[SUP]th[/SUP] afternoon the SA called and informed me that it was battery complaint and I will need to replace the battery. I advised him to double-check and confirm before I buy a new battery. On 30[SUP]th[/SUP] afternoon, I get a call from the SA informing that they detect a complaint in the Fuse Carrier assembly and as I do not have extended warranty I will have to replace it at my cost which he quoted approximately Rs.15000/-. My car is only 3.5 years old and run nearly 17000 kilometers only. I have had a Ford Ikon for 10 years, Tavera since last 5 years, Linea and a VW Polo since 1.5 years. None of these other 3 cars ever had this problem. How come the fuse carrier gets faulty in just 3.5 years and is this common problem with Fiat Linea. Has any other owner faced a similar problem?
