    Did you get to see if it was a 1.2 or 1.4?

    Someday ....
    One day ....
    When i am on Highway ...
    AC will work in the required way...
    Till that day ....
    I am suffering the heat, like a turkey in hot bay
    Its fixed, thats what Fiat Management Say
    Parts are not available thats what Service Adviser Say
    From the summer of May
    To the winter of the day
    I suffer the same way
    People laugh and giggle, "Fiat Linea is my car" when i say..
    Being over emotional, my heart say
    All the pains will go away ...
    Some day ...
    One day ...

    Mihir- The SA mentioned that the AC change was for both 1.2 and 1.4 Puntos...but I didnt see whether that specific car was a 1.2 or 1.4.

    Thanks Arvind for the confirmation as my Dealer still does not have any news on this. Can we ask the dealer to do it or does he need the intimation from the company?

    I spoke to SA as TASS in hyderabad. He said he also heard something about AC but does not have details as yet

    Great news for Hyderabad Petrol owners.... Had a talk with the SA and he said that the kits have arrived but Fiat has organized a training for the technicians on how to install it and they will call the owners next week regarding the upgrade after they are trained on how to do it.....

    @ Friends who already got it done: did anyone noticed a difference in cooling after the upgrade.... Just wanted to check whether it is worth getting this done or not

    Hi Shashank ,

    I got that upgrade on Dec. 1 . And i had stopped using AC around 15 th Nov. So wont be able to comment on the cooling front .
    I havent even refilled the ac gas [ which tends to reduce during the process of uprading ] . Only thing noticable is the more audible fan noise [ bt for a shorter period than earlier ] .

    My dealer has ordered the AC upgrade kit 2 weeks ago, still awaiting :(
    @Dilip_dmk: Any changes in mileage figures?
    Fan with more noise isnt acceptable, already my petrol car sounds like a diesel one :(

    Thanks Dilip.... Did you get a chance to see how they do it and what all parts do they replace in that...

    Hi Viny ,

    After the upgrade I had taken the car to Chandigargh [frm Delhi - approx 275 kms ] and the car is returning an average of 16.7+ kmpl [without AC] . The car is butter- smooth [ with no feeling of under-powerness ] . Excellent acceleration . Culprit : 2nd servicing , winter season . However cant still say anything if der has been a change after the upgrade !!! Would report to you next summer [ highway + ac ] .

    No noise of fan inside the cabin . Inside the cabin u wont feel if the engine is running or not .
