    28,xxx kms done the A/C peformance since past few weeks is not to my satisfaction. On FULL AUTO at about 18 deg C, there is barely any air coming out of the blower's and the air flow display on the ACC screen shows barely 2 bars. Could it be a blocked pollen filter? Could a blocked pollen filter cause a dip in cooling prowess?

    Most likely it is the pollen filter which is the culprit. And mileage is 28k only; I thought you would have been much ahead by now. Haven't been driving much or what? I'm taking mine to the service center tomorrow for the 30k service.

    Also, now Fiat doesn't give Pollen filters.
    The replacement is "wiremess filters" (~Rs. 45). This will have better cooling, but Pollen filter was better in reducing the outside smells.

    Must be the blocked pollen filter. I had the same symptoms and they pulled out a polythelene bag blocking pollen filter !

    Yes I have been driving the GP less in the past few months. The City has been driven a lot more but all that changes from today! Also, I want to quickly get to 30,000kms so the pollen filter can be changed asap!

    Third service completed!

    Faults: None.
    Complaints: Rear parcel tray broken - Clips out of stock.

    A colleague of mine took the car for service. Overall expereince was good, a SA attended to him within 10 minutes of him reaching at the reception and service job was well done.

    ACC cooling was ineffective in the past few hundred kms but a change of filter has brought back the cooling to it's original level's.

    Fortune's problem of bottleneck in washing continues. I got the car back without washing as it awaited a 45 minute wait for washing. Interior cleaning was done and the job was simply put - BRILLIANT!

    Rs. 4928/- for a Diesel car with 30,000 kms on the ODO is not bad at all. In fact, its sweet !!:)

    If this is for Diesel than definatly the service cost for 1.2 Petrol will bit less. what say? FIAT cars are easy to maintain.
