    Guys, we have said\suggested lot to Fiat India like do this do that. Lets stop here. I am very much sure they are not at all going to do anything. They will simply make cars , place them in Tata Motors showroom and rest is left to the buyers.
    They are clearly not at all thinking about ABCD to make a product hit in Indian market (Marketing, TV and news paper ads etc) which makes any worse product among best.
    Good going FIAT, your way is also goes to set an example here, no matter in other way.

    I am a potential buyer for a Linea MJD Emo + and had my heart set on it for a few months now. I was told FIAT's are bad by a number of experienced people but then again experienced people told me not to buy the Accent Viva CRDI either and buy a Skoda Octavia which would have landed me in heaps of bill's about now.

    To date i have taken 2 test drives of Linea and loved the car drives and handles the only problem for me is the servicing, niggle problems and the interior build "I dont care if plastic are hard or soft they should be put together well".

    I am waiting for Fiat to do something about these problems or i will look else were for a new car like the Vento or the Cruze LT.

    EDIT: As for the break u i am guessing the following case:

    Linea - 850
    Punto - 1003
    500 - 2
    Palio - 10

    Ajai Fiat is gearing up dude, But you will surely feel the difference driving the Italian car, its build strong and has many features than the others in the same category, If you have liked the Linea then go for it buddy. ::T

    Test cars are the most abused vehicles u'll ever come across. Do not base your opinions entirely upon them. If possible , get hold of a friend's Linea ( if any ) and then make a comparison.

    In my case the test car i drove was making funny suspension noises ( the sales executive was frank in saying " sir , we dont slow down for bumps or potholes :lol: and hence the noises" ) . But the car we got is perfectly fine , no noises , the interior is well put together , not a single creak or rattle. And , the looks of the Linea have no parallel ( my opinion).

    The Cruze is a different beast altogether and in a different segment, so if u can afford it go for it.
    The Vento has a powerful diesel engine, but is not exactly value for money and not much is known about Volkswagen's long term running costs.

    Absolutely correct GURJINDER. Demo vehicles are used roughly by the dealership.

    If Fiat had done half as much advertisement as Tata does for Manza, we would certainly see more than double the sales numbers for Linea.
