    On Saturday, i got a call from my Dealer informing me that rear axle of my car is to be replaced, does anybody else got a similar call?

    I have never faced any issue with my car as yet (its only 9months old).

    Please do give feedback.

    regards

    Car i bought was Dec'10 model, delivered in Jan'11, linea MJD emotion.
    The reason was that Fiat felt that thier might be a problem in future, so they are proactively replacing it FOC :p.
    Also the dealer said that its a selective problem (possibly in some bacthes) and my car had been identified as one:eek:

    Can you verify the correct name of the part to be replaced from the dealer?

    There is no rear axle in the Linea.

    Can be something like anti roll bar, sway bar etc.

    rear axle in the sense the axis on which the hub and brake drums are mounted. fiat is replacing these as there is a technical problem in it. they had changed the vendor for this part and they observed that there is more tyre wearout.

    but when i checked they said its for latest cars and not dec 2010.

    this sucks. no one has correct info. now i have to again shoot mails, create havoc and check for my dec2010 linea whether this applies. hopeless mechanism of informing customers.
