    Just got a call from KHT Motors Service center that my TJet + needs an upgrade to the rear axle (mine is Feb 2011 manufactured). SA told me that it is "to reduce difficulty while driving" and will take couple of days to complete. I booked for next Saturday (19th) as I cannot do it tomorrow.

    Is there any noticeable difference in the cars where this has been upgraded?

    There is no noticeable difference in driving.

    The SA here told that this is being done because there were many cases where the rear tires were experiencing unnatural and uneven wear due to this faulty rear torsion beam. :-? Has anyone experienced this?

    actually theres a spot welding that may crack open on the replaced ones. there were few reported cases regarding this crack.

    the service adviser told me this.

    but i have found a noticeable change in my linea.

    before the upgrade, my car was pulling to the left even when the toe adjustment was set to zero. but now its not pulling.
    i used to hear thud sounds from the boot since day one of my purchase but i thought this was normal for all lineas. but now theres no noise its silent.

    well these were the only two changes i found.

    Fiat Upgrade in rear axle and suspension

    got a call from universal ASPI A'bad last week, regarding some upgrade (they didn't knew exactly what upgrade).
    Set my Punto for upgrade on Tuesday, and got it back as it is, as they didn't got the correct part from fiat on time. Might get a call again some time next week. Any ideas what upgrade? TASS said to solve noise issues by replacing some part in rear axle and ssupension!!!
