    I drive a City and it’s build quality is horrible. Let me tell you my experiece. I was driving in town behind a linea suddenly a dog came in way of linea and he hit the brakes and I hit the linea from behind.
    Damage done to my Car (Front bumper + one fog lamp+ number plate+ strach on headlight)
    Damage done to Linea ( A broken number plate + Paint scratch and a mis-alligned bumper + one chrome strip) There was not even a small dent on the bumper)
    Anyone who says City plastic good is lying come and sit in my car and it will all those noises that my 800 used to make)
    I have even changed engine oil sump just beacuse Honda decided to save some money by not giving underbody protection plate.
    Earlier to this incident even I used to say Linea is a bad car and quality is bad.
    I get call from dealership for service after every 3 months.Even my 800 had a service interval of 10k kms or 12 months whichever is earlier
    Now I recommend Linea instead of city to everyone just because family safety is much bigger than some parts falling or mis fited plastic)
    If I had to buy between City and Linea today I will choose Linea with my eyes closed.

    Completely disagree. U cant compare tinboxes(most Maruti's ) with cars (FIAT).

    Im not saying this because im some FIAT fanboy who cannot take in criticism of FIAT. But its plain and simple fact that the body metal used is much tougher than what Maruti or Honda etc can even think of.

    Same was the case in earlier FIAT's. Look at older Palios. Damn tanks.

    I bought a fiat coz of the built reputation and looks,,

    but if the bumper & bonnet cannot prevent a damage to the intercooler which sits atleast 8-10 inches behind all protection, and the grills are not of tensile but hard plastic which cracks easily... i still love the solid feel of the car but its only a feel, i am a Fiat fan too and will be more careful on road to keep my baby safe (fragile handle with care)

    Do not generalise, brother.

    Mind you, a bike colliding at 50-60 kmph straight on is not a 'touch and go' scrape or a small thing.

    Let the Govt agencies test the collision of a bike at 60kmph straight on with the City , Linea , Verna , Vento etc and publish the results. Just like European NCAP ratings.

    Till then , i wont be doubting FIAT's build.

    Dear , will post pics of my Getz after a bike rammed into it at a higher speed, all that broke was the front logo the bumper was pressed but few thumps and it was back in place , i am just posting my reviews on specific part and paint quality not for the entire machine so that fellow members are aware of what all to prevent and what all to check in case of unfortunate situations

    Sad to hear that. What happened to the biker? Hope he has learnt his lesson!
