    Thats awful @Vaibhav Rawat. Sorry to hear that you are having problems.

    I have read about the Linea T-Jet "losing power" issue quite a few times now, even in some older ownership posts and I wonder if this is a common issue with Linea. :-(

    It's NOT an issue of any sort with the Linea: 'losing power' is the most vague description, and so pretty much anything can count (from dirty fuel and bad fuel pump which is what @Vaibhav_Rawat has faced to a loose contact or a coolant deficit or a leaking pipe/plumbing), which is why you might've encountered it a few times reading reports.

    There may be an issue with gear shifts/weak powerspot at certain rpm-s on some mjd-s on the newest cars: 2 or 3 such reports have come, and that is a 'new' incidence IF it is, statistically, happening frequently, which is doubtful.

    Internet reports are NOT statistically AT ALL representative, so......I wouldn't worry in the least, speaking from years of experience with the Linea(petrols, t-jet)+Punto(diesel) here. In any case an issue is an issue....so as long as FASS sort it out well, doesn't really matter.

    cheers

    I dont care about statistics. I only care about my car. My car should serve me well when I am in jungles, mountains, highways or anywhere for that matter. If a 3-lakh rupee, 7 year old WagonR can move continuously for 500kms which includes the harshest terrains in India, including steep slopes with full load, then why is mighty T-Jet failing to do so??? I have taken T-Jet twice on long trips and same issue has occurred again and again. And I can tell, it feels miserable to be stranded in middle of nowhere, with jungle all around, temperature dipping. I really dont know if FASS will be able to solve the issue or not, but I am scared to take my car again on a long trip in near future. The whole excitement of buying THE LINEA T-JET has died down and am feeling embarrassed on insisting my father into buying a FIAT.

    @Vaibhav Rawat, this is sad to hear. I would suggest following up with Fiat through emails and getting this escalated to other persons in their organization. If you are interested, PM me and I would share some email IDs with you. Let's try and make your purchase a successful one.

    I understand how miserable it feels to be stranded on the road in middle of a journey with family and luggage for the same issue again and again. I feel this may be due to blunder in finding the appropriate problem by the service team of Fiat. Relaibility is not an issue with Fiat cars, but these service people may not be reliable. Pity the way, such a well designed and well thought machine is taken care of.
