    Bala poor work done by TASS.
    I would suggest you to call fiat RSA helpline 1800-209-3428. Also file a complaint against your TASS at Fiat service helpline and email id service@fiapl.com
    Engine oil leaking is a serious problem. If engine gets starved of engine oil due to excessive leakage the engine of the car will get seized due to overheating.
    If you still want to drive it to TASS take a extra bottle of engine oil with you and keep checking the engine oil level at regular intervals and topup as necessary.

    hi Bala, sorry to hear about the after repair ordeal. i suggest you call the fiat folks and tell them oil is leaking a TASS has done a bullshit work after gulping your 92k rs.

    tell them to send a flat bed truck and pick your car on that instead of driving a leaking car.
    can you please tell us what all was covered in insurance and how much you paid from your own pocket?

    mainly mail ceo and other fiat heads that you want a certificate from them that your car is fit and roadworthy and the repairs are as per standards.

    strictly mail them that you dont want a road side mechanic jugad sorts of repairs.

    @Bala: Just got enough time to browse this forum after a long gap and hence this thread completely. Sorry to hear about the damages to your car. Don't worry all is well and will end well. Do post your experience on TASS. That would help one and all.

    Thanks Vijay khaksa and Italia Linea,but even a road side mechanic jugad would have done a better job when compared to the guys at T.A.S.S.It was just 4 or 5 screws that have to be tightened to fix the mudgaurd above tyre,they did not even do that and the mudgaurd got disengaged and it had to be cut to make way for the tires to rotate.Now I've tied the remaining mudgaurd with a thread in the holes provided,an indication of future things to come.That the mudgaurd is cut,all the wires,cables in the engine bay are exposed to mud,dirt and water.
  6. Bala, thats sad to hear that the car is stil not ready !
    Make noises and pressurise FIAT to act quickly.

    T.A.S.S. overcharged you.
    Why are you charged for brake job 3 times it should be just one. For replacing brake pad it's obvious calipers would have to be removed then why are you charged for caliper removing and reinstallation. Brake pad replacement include those charges.

    Have you got any reply from Fiat service helpline
    TASS in your area is big :thumbs down. Fiat should look into this seriously. It's not the first time they have given poor service quality to you.

    Really pathetic service. :hit

    How much one can be patient? These guys don't want to correct itself, just doing short term solutions.
