I have been using a Fiat Linea Diesel - Emotion Pk from July 2009. have covered 53000kms on it. just changed the tyres 2000 kms back - having shod the wheels with Yokohama 195-65-15 (the profile being raised from 60 to 65). just out of the 4 yrs of extended warranty. have enjoyed using the machine. Special mention to be made about the stability, ABS braking, the sturdy feel that you get to experience on the highway drives. the low ground clearance did create some problems - twice i had the belly dented by hits on high speed breakers and the second time when i rode over a boulder that had been rolled onto the road by another vehicle. Twice the oil sump got dented - and the drop in power was too evident especially the second while. Each time i had to straighten out the sump base. i have had repeated issues with the front suspension bush. a few weeks back i had to change the front shocks and the brake pads too. i am a very happy owner of the beauty - the LINEA. inspite of all the down sides that i face with the vehicle. i just love it - so do my family.
