    My Fiat Linea Emotion (Model 11/2009) unfortunately was gone through an accident on December 9th 2012 near Gondavale,Satara(Maharashtra),which was struck by truck from left rear,fortunately me,my wife and two year old daughter survived from that terrible experience without single scratch,considering car damage (Photo Attached) this seems miracle for us and we thank god for this!.Mr.Death was infront of us,we said "Hello Mr Death!",He smiled and left us intact!.

    I was wearing seat belts and that saved us a lot,also seems that Linea body is very tough!.

    My frustration has started now since i submitted my vehicle on same day of accident to Pandit Auto,Shahu College,Pune Branch the review/survey was immediately carried out by HDFC Ergo on very next day within 6 hours of intimation,but my service adviser @ pandit has told them and me that it will take at least week to get estimate!,Roughly he has told 2.5L :-( don't know how much i will get from insurance company considering depreciation thing!.most frustrating is waiting period of estimate and repair time (Dont know why they take such long time),i am really missing my Linea........

    Lets see how it goes as seen very bad reviews about this service center and my service adviser on net! (Link Below).But my previous normal routine service visits are ok in last 2 years.

    Firstly, great to hear that all of you are fine. That's the most important thing!

    It must've been a horrific collision to tear the Linea's body apart like that - even the alloy wheel is a goner. Regarding Pandit Auto, if your experience goes well, other reviews shouldn't matter.

    It's quite a major repair job and will take some time mate.

    Happy to hear that you all are safe. The body damage they estimate the electrical and all so it take a bit time but hope you get your beauty in the same charm soon. The reviews always doesn't matter but your personal experience with the TASS/TASC matters. If you feel that Pandit Auto is ok, just ignore the reviews and get the things done.

    That looks like BIG accident! Glad every one is safe. But get a check up for whiplash injuries anyway.

    Good to know that You and family are safe! I saw your linea being towed away near nal stop, pune in the evening that day! I remember telling my wife how the cabin still seems to be intact! Pandit should be decent else you could try millennium service centre. Hope you get your linea soon.

    Happy to hear that you all are safe. That was indeed a bad accident. The internal damages would be quite substantial. As Gurjinder said, it's quite a major repair job and will take some time.
