    I think yours is the first tjet to be serviced in forum. What all did they checked? Did they do some tuning/refinement? how the general feedback from the service rep (in case you chatted up with him).

    No, it was not in reverse gear. actually in my parking i have to take 90 degree turn to park it in correct slot. yesterday after the 200 kms drive i first stopped infront of the parking and then took left turn(90 degree turn). i suddenly heard some rubbing sound from the front wheels (not sure which one). Sound was like when two rotating metals touch each other. Today after returning from office i parked it same way but didn't heard any sound. Not sure if it happened after the long drive.

    No worries Gaurav.

    When you said 90 degree turn, you must the turned your steering wheel completely to one side until there is no play left and when you do that, you WILL get this noise.. there is nothing wrong about that. It happens in all HPS and the second time probably you would not have completely turned your steering and there would have been some play left and hence you didnt get that noise.

    It happens in mine too. so dont worry. Enjoy your Jet.

    One more thing, during start ups in the morning or after a long break, I hear some strange noise from the steering / brakes (some mild humming or rather rubbing noise) and it just vanishes after a few minutes of drive. the SC advisor checked this and said that even it was normal and he even showed one more linea having the same noise (it was parked in their yard)..

    I am facing some problem with the USB port- Music player is showing "source not available" even though the pen drive is already in the slot. when I removed and inserted the pen drive few times it started showing the name of the song on the MID but didn't played the song. Suggestions pls. how to get it rectified

    Restart the system by disconnecting the negative terminal and putting it back after 5/10 minutes..
    I guess the problem will go away.

    Today i took my car for around 100kms trip. Through out my journey i drove it in between 60 to 80 Km/hr but got only 13.5 Km/l mileage. It was evening and the weather was also pleasant so i didn't used the AC. I think 13.5 with sedate driving and w/o AC is less on highway. I need to check the air pressure of my tires. As suggested by many members i was keeping my one eye on Instant consumption while driving and tried to maintain it to higher figures.

    Gauravp hw much has your Jet run so far, FE will increase after the service and when the piston plays smooth, I used to get 11 km/lt at the start but used to drive with AC on full time, but now getting 13.2 city driving, yeah do check the correct tyre pressure.

    Last week i had the short trip from Pune to BhimaShankar temple. The total distance was 260 Kms including( 100 Kms of ghat section). on this trip, i got the opportunity to test the Linea handling and i totally amazed with its handling. On the U band shaped road i was cornering comfortably at the speed of 60-70 kmph.

    My jet also gave me decent mileage of 13kmpl on full time AC.
