    Holy Moly.

    Damn. Cracking the windshield while changing wiper!

    The sheer stupidity of TASS guys was what caused me to strike off almost all items from the 2nd service list. And ended up doing only the bare essential ones. I didn't want a perfect Linea to get screwed.

    A friend of mine in Moga got the 15k service done and ended up having free-play in his steering and car moving to left on a straight road ( it was perfect earlier). AND, he was charged for free service as well! Last i heard he was exchanging mails with Mangesh with no resolution in sight.

    These TASS buffoons are better off working on Indigos and Manjas

    Ouch! That hurt even me man :( Are the morons replacing the windshield again? You really seem to have run into a serious of unfortunate events. Maybe you should wait it out... I'm not exactly superstitious but your car and TASS seem have some negative energy going on.

    ask for a loaner car while your car goes for replacing the windshield. you may need to complain to Fiat for that! atleast your inconvenience will be minimized

    In last 3 months I have spent Rs. 50 k in maintaining my Linea.

    Feb12 - 60 k kms service. Bill Rs. 24,000

    AC COOLING COIL leaked - Bill Rs. 3,200.

    Rear absorbers leaked, replaced with GC upgrade kit. Elastic pad worn out, replaced it. Windshield replaced under Insurance. Still my bill was Rs. 21,000

    Just before 60k kms, changed battery and tyres.

    REALLY A BUNCH OF JOKERS !!!

    I try to avoid visiting TASS as much as possible. Have decided to make a visit only once in 15000km .

    But , now i have to visit them next week for the Routine Underbody coating Pre-monsoon as i got a 5 year Anti-rust Plan with them. Though its just a small job , i really dread entering the place with my beloved car.

    Driver did not come y'day. So, after a few days, I got my hands on the wheel :). It was so pleasant driving Linea Home - Office - Home for a day !! :)

    Sent the car to Wasan just now for Windshield replacement.

    Everytime I wish that for a few months I would not send my Linea to TASC, the dreade opportunity surfaces like a "Phoenix" !!

    Let's see how many days now will she remain out of bounds of TASC !!

    Recently i had been to TASS to replace the blown off turbo hose pipe. A moron mechanic with a white punto first brushed the rear right of the punto to a pillar and then he panicked and turned his car to left and scrapped my lineas rear bumper.

    Now they have promised me to repaint it. I will have to give them my car for 2 days.

    Unfortunate event.
    Most troubling part of taking the vehicle to TASS is the fear of getting the vehicle back in shape. So I take my vehicle after a perfect wash hoping that they will be little more careful in handling a shining vehicle. Also instruct them not to wash.

    Every time I wish to avoid TASC I end up being there on the same day or next day!!!

    Got the car back after windshield replacement.

    1. Driver called from TASC that glove box is loose snd detached. This has been the case since last 3 times at wasan. SA says the plastic bolt is broken abd glove box needs replacement. I said just fix it the way it was as I am tired of TASC. This is definitely the "doing" of wasan. But still....

    2. after coming back driver apologized that he did not notice that the hazard light button psanel on centrsal fascisa is displaced and is pushed inside. :(.

    I will need to send the car to wasan again tomorrow :(.

    Only god can save me in my wish not to send my Linea to TASC.
