    Amit,

    Thats quite a big review :wow amd am still going through it. Nice and detailed one.

    I have a query for you:

    When you got your 15k kms/1 year service done, did the TASS people reset the service reminder?
    In my case, these idiots have forgotten to reset it and now its showed 1500 kms left :A . Would it be an issue big enough to go to the TASS? Would the MID keep showing me warnings for it? Any idea?

    TASS did reset the Service Reminder from MID/ ECU at the time of 2nd service.

    Many other TASS are forgetting to reset it. Its not a worry, you can get it reset in your next TASS visit. Only thing is the MID will keep showing reminders at every start up.

    I checked Service Reminder today in the Menu option. Its set at 0 km :confused . Means I won't get reminder at 30k kms. THis should have been taken care of by Fortune Powai when they reseted it. :mad:

    Usual bouts of 15-17 kmpl FE continues in the morning & the usual crawling in evening B2B traffic continues. Result - 10 kmpl FE in 100% city 100% AC ON with my Heavy footed driving. I consider that as good FE. My Ford Ikon used to give me 8-9 kmpl.

    Araldite filled in surrounding edges of rear Fiat Logo seems to be frustrating thieves to move over to other cars :mrgreen: Its still there & 90% of cars in our vicinity still continue to remain logo-less meaning thief is still at large. During rains, when I discontinued covering car with body cover, I was expecting some harsh tries to steal logo. But Araldite seems to be doing stupendous work, me think.

    There are some issues for which I'm communicating with Fiat. Early stages, shall post on further developments.

    Yep. Shall have to remind them to sent the reminder :mrgreen:

    Got the rear tyre puctured today. While I was getting it repaired, a duo of father & son walked by & I heard father asking the son - "kya bola? tuje bahut achhi lag rahi hai kya ye car ?" :mrgreen: Am always amazed the ability of Linea to attract the little ones. (And also the elder ones :mrgreen: )

    Amit, how did you get the punctured tyre repaired? Do you carry DIY kit or got it fixed by a road-side tyrewala? Did you feel any drag when driving your Fiat Linea at the time of puncture?

    Ravi,

    No puncture DIY repair kit for me. Am too lazy for tyre change & all that. Got it done at Roadside puncturewallah. His & surrounding looks were dubious that will he do a good job. But he turned out to be a good professional.

    Actually, there was a keel (metal rod 1.5 inch long & 2-3 mm dia). However, tyre was not completely flat. It was 75% filled & 25% flat-types. Noticed while I got down to go to an ATM.
