    I've no idea. Actually, I could not drive much after the service as am down with back ache. Whatever little I drove, I could not feel any issue. But to check any alignment issues/ Handling/ Wobbling, I'll need to drive her at about 100 - 120 kmph on highway.

    It would look good in my opinion . It may appear as a FIAT watermark !!!
    Only two conditions : it should be uniform fading and the paint should'nt rip off during removal of the sticker !!!!

    In your invoice for the 4th service the Major Service Labor is Rs1200 but total labour cost is about 7.5k. Is it due to the Clutch repair or labor cost is this much ?

    Yes, Clutch repair labour cost is Rs. 4500/- Add 1200/- for major service labour + Wheel Alignment + Balancing + all others (except for parts)

    There wouldn't be any noticeable difference when you drive. You should be having a free checkup kind of thing say after another 2500 kms or so (Normally all the wheel balancing /Alignment shops do provide a free checkup). Maybe you can get it corrected then. If there is no free checkup then get it corrected at the earliest. It is out of the recommended range.

    Good News !!

    Just spoke to TASC. As expected, Fiat has honored the warranty for Clutch repairs and approved it. Thank you, Fiat !! Most manufacturers would have made me/ customer sweat to get the warranty approved.

    Shall get refund after a week from TASC. At that time I'll remember to get the 3M anti rust free check up & application done & also shall get Wheel alignment report checked.

    Nice to see your scratch free linea. It looks like a brand new(touchwood).

    In Goa many people are getting the 3M paint protection from Ford service stations where the fininshing is good. In my case I got it done from Tata Showroom and I am not quite happy with it. In my second free coating they didn't remove some very small scratches, which could have easily gone with polishing. So my point is to get it done from the best place.

    That's a wonderful update Vahanpujari. I can see some marginal increase in the price of some items when you compare the 3rd & 4th service. Initially Fiat had this spare part comparison where they claimed that Linea's spare parts are the cheapest. Now I don't see that in the site.

    VP nice to read that thread and thanks for sharing bulk history of the car servicing.

    We should publish this bill to show how easy are the FIAT cars to maintain.
