    I have exactly the same issues in my Car. The only difference the roof lining instead of rear It has come out at the front left side.

    Additionally. When I cross the humps, I get sound from shocks as if it is doing kind of summer-salt.

    Wish you happy journey and keep us posted on the service.

    For the point

    3. Squeaking noise from left side on uneven roads

    Could you observe if this sound is coming from the co-passenger seat ? If it is possible see if there is a slight rattle of this particular seat. Just wanted to help you, so that you can pinpoint the same to the TASS guys.
  3. If its the 'tadak' sound as if something is breaking, then dont worry, its typical fiat and all Linea has this sound when the rear seats are empty.

    Regarding the roof lining, i have noticed this in all the cars in the yard. Infact my friends new 90HP punto too has the same issue.

    Thats correct Bro.
    The co-passenger seat is vibrating and now i doubt if the sound is from the co-passenger seat.

    I am much relieved from the information on the shock sound. Yes, the sound is more audible when I drive to Office alone.
  5. Service report:

    Issues reported and status :
    1. Boot extremely hard to close. Need some lubricants - Solved*
    2. Roof beading on the rear edge be glued - Solved
    3. Squeaking noise from left side on uneven roads - Partially solved. There are few squeaks which appear but negligible & only on uneven roads.
    4. Tyre Noise - tyres to be checked by Goodyear guys - No solution as the GY NCT5 tyres on all Jets tested are noisy.
    5. Squeaking noise while braking slowly - Solved.
    6. Fuel flap hard to close - Solved

    *Point no. 1 is sorted out but they have misaligned the boot now. Check for the bottom part of the boot on the right hand side (the gap between the boot and the bumper on the right side). Have to now visit the servce centre again to sort out this.

    The service advisor tried solving the issue with the help of body shop mechanics but they were clueless. Had to rush to office as it was already late. The delivery of the car was promised yesterday evening but was ready only by 12 noon today. The service advisor told me to collect the car at 10 am today as they couldn't wash it yesterday due to rush. They made me wait for 2 hours today.

    What irked me is that i found & reported that the boot was misaligned but the service advisor was trying to convince me that nothing can be done to it and i need to live with it.


    My ratings :
    - Welcome at the gate by the security staff : 10/10
    - Response at the reception : 4/10 (the lady at the reception was shouting for a person who can take my car but none of the staff were ready to attend to a FIAT car. Finally the CRM had to assign a SA after complaining).
    - Waiting time for the Service advisor : 2/10 ( i had to wait for over 30 mins despite having an appointment)
    - Customer waiting lounge : 0/10 (over crowded with drivers; heavily soiled sofas)
    - Knowledge level of the SA : 6/10
    - Car delivered at the promised timeline : No
    - Car washed properly : 3/10 (had stains all over. Am sure no shampoo was used)
    - All issues reported solved : 5/10

    Overall rating : 5/10 (satisfactory)

    I had no choice to choose another service centre as my car is under company lease. The Lease company has tie up only with Concorde Motors.

    Agreed. Concorde Motors, Dairy Circle/Mysore Road, Bangalore, seem to be way ahead of their Chennai units in most of the aspects barring over-crowded customer lounge with soiled sofas.

    bnzjon your boot can definitely be aligned. it the sa tells it cannot be, tell him to leave his job or know facts better. i had a similar issue of raised boot and hard shut. it is better if you get it done with some local mechanic ass he would pay better attention.
  8. I know this can be fixed as the boot was in perfect alignment before giving it for service.

    Somehow i am not feeling that very good post the service. Everytime i look at the boot, i am feeling depressed. I know i am stupid but am not able to control my feelings about the car.

    What was done to get rid of the noise while braking at low speeds? My friend is facing a similar issue with the braking noise, though his car has already done 40K
  10. Brake pads were cleaned. Nothing else and the noise disappeared !
