    if there is a leak at idling too then check for exhaust leakages.

    @ Subin, you need to get it checked from TASS. what was the highest rpm you could go.
    check the turbo boost by hokking up ECU scanner @ TASS.

    I am seeing that slowly all the Service Centres in Chennai are becoming a nightmare to deal with. This is not at all a good sign if Fiat is serious about the A.S.S. They have to do something to have this sorted out.

    Concorde, Chennai
    The service is very bad as far as I have heard from the people who visited them. Both Ambattur and ECR centres are equally bad.

    TAFE, Chennai
    I did have pleasant experience with them. But, after going through teky's experience, I am scared now.

    VST, Chennai
    My personal experience with them has been very bad. For a faulty power window, they made me to run behind them (almost 2 weeks) to get this sorted and even after that they created a new issue in my car after correcting the power window issue. Another friend of mine and TFI'ian pdranjith too had a horrible experience with them for a fautly battery and wind shield issue on a 2 weeks old car. He is still struggling with the windsheild issue without any solution.

    What options do we Chennai TFI'ians have?

    I didn't get the part on the rotors becoming ''hard''. They are cast iron, they will be hard always. :p

    Did you install new brake pads when you got the rotors turned the first time?

    Cheers.

    yes gurjinder I installed new brake pads when i got the rotors turned first time . With a run of 4k kms my brake pads have been started squealing . I guess its due to rotors getting warped .

    4K is too less a mileage for the rotors to become warped again. Maybe they weren't surfaced properly the first time or they are beyond that stage and need replacing with new ones.

    Have an experienced guy take a look at the brakes.
