    exactly...this noon i had been to fiat parts supplier @ Kashmiri gate(new Delhi) told me the same thing that very soon all fiat cars are gonna be recalled for their faulty condensers. cost for the change would be around 25k for each condenser.its for all cars it seems...........

    Herbie, all petrol Punto and Linea manufactured since October 2010 come equipped with upgraded ACs. If your car is manufactured in Oct 10 or later, you need not worry about the upgrade.

    Hi Guys, I own a punto emotion 2009. The a/c is giving terrible time in bumper to bumper traffic conditions. Even after the recent upgrade of the kit, the problem persist. when it is cruising or idling , the cooling is superb. I spoke to the service enginners at wasan, whom are not willing to accept this fault. I am very disappointed with this and dont know what to do now

    Mine 1.2 Active is cooling well after the up gradation of the Kit, usually keep the ventilation on the Re-cycling mode and then turn f to In-Cabin cycle mode once the cabin is cool, Hope this exercise will solve the issue.. If the problem stills pursuits then check up the Gas level????
  10. I'm trying very hard to upgrade my AC from Fortune Nerul. Also called Fiat couple of times. Mine requires a white AC kit which is not available since last 4 months at Fortune Cars Nerul ( very hard to belive this !). Fiat call center promised me someone would call me within 72 hours and give some update. Let's see.:uh
