    Hi Fiat'ers ("Punters" & "Lineans") :mrgreen: ,

    Many of you would know me from several Automobile forums.

    I'm Amit (VP/VahanPujari), am Electronics Engineer-MBA, worked in Fortune 200 companies.

    There are 2 cars I myself owned in last 6-7 years

    - Ford Ikon (My 1st car)
    - Fiat Linea 1.4 Petrol Emotion Pack Flamenco Red

    While in my family (Father/ Brother), the ownership of cars include Indica, Esteem & again Indica. My BIL has NHC- VTEC.

    As you can see from my Car choices, I'm fond of dynamically superior cars i.e. Excellent Ride & Handling coupled with absolutely accurate & responsive HPS steering with oodles of feedback.

    The Ikon was a darling for 5.5 years & I had thrown her into all kinds of terrains for 90,000 kms. She always came back trumps in whatever is the situation. Being my 1st car, I absolutely loved its great maneuverability (because of responsive HPS steering) & ease of driving be it within city or on highways. She was also absolutely trouble-free without any major or even minor part failure/ change except for Fuel Pump which bothered me in last year. That was also due to the fact that I ended up getting in a non-original Fuel Pump as the same was not available nearby where the car broke down twice. I had to sell it with a heavy heart though I kept it for 4-5 days after I got Linea delivered to me.

    Ikon's superb dynamics was making my next car purchase decisioning difficult. Only till I experienced a certain car called Fiat Linea :). Took the plunge & was one of the firsts to buy Fiat Linea in 3 months of its launch in India.

    With 21,000 kms on the ODO in 1 year, 1 month, 22 days & 1 Hour, I must say that Fiat Linea is far far much superior dynamically, is class-leading & is a benchmark not only in its own segment but a segment or 2 above its segment.

    Amit, Good to know you finally. I have seen you in multiple forums before but didnot know that you had owned a Ford ikon before. I am glad you like the FIAT Linea even better after your wonderful experience with Ford for 5 years. Enjoy many more miles with the Linea.

    Thank you so much, Vroom

    Yes, we've not yet met inspite of being in the same city. But, we'll surely meet in one of the forum meets.

    Looking forward to meeting you.
