  1. Re: Bubling on slow speed.

    the same thing happened to me..@20-30 km speed my car started bubling but it was corrected after getting the right amount of Air-pressure in the tires.

    Air pressure is not the culprit as I've checked it 3-4 times.

    Re: Warrantee of Shock Absorber

    After doing some struggle, :punch got front Sturts in warrantee. :)

    I changed stabiliser bar at my own cost.

    SHOCK ABSORBER FRONT LH DSL 59089793 Rs.1235/- Warrantee

    SHOCK ABSORBER FRONT RH DSL 59089795 Rs.1600/- Warrantee

    Torsion BAR Rs.1315/- paid

    Right hand sturt is costly than LH :confused

    Is there anyone who can clarify ? :anyone

    I think its to do with some parts made in Turkey (outside India) while some made in India...
    There was a discussion recently on specific side parts not made in India.

    Hey that's strange - I was told by the service advisor that the warranty for FIAT's suspension is 80000 kms and has the best suspension system. He also said that in FIAT if there is any problem in the suspension then it gets covered in warranty.

    KM criteria is for TAXI vehicle. Not for Private cars.

    Both sturts are made in India by ENDURANCE. But name of COFEP is also mentioned. Means ENDURANCE might have done collibration with COFEP . COFEP is Brazilian brand. All 2011 car comes with Indian sturts now.
  8. Have heard about alloy crack but NOT bending -- is this true???

    Facing with a major issue of premature tyre worn out. The issue started with whobbling feeling when crosseing 80km/hr by 6000kms. Doing tyre aligment fixed this at multiple times.

    Logged this during my first service at 15000KM but found nothing (probably alignment check fixed it) and by 21000 the tyre shredded to half. Managed to cross 26000KM with this issue but by this time it was unbearable and logged a complaint with FIAT.

    They promtly called and requested service centre to check the issue. The car was given for insepection but things got delayed for 3 weeks as GoodYear team was not able to come for inspection. After all this delay, they told the front two alloys are damaged and there is slgiht bend!!!.

    If I plan to change these 2 alloys, can I claim insurance (FIAT alloy is 9k each!)?

    Alloys can bend. Particularly when going thro' a deep pothole in speed. Our member geeash faced this in his Linea quite early. I think it can be claimed in Insurance, not sure though.

    Yes insurance can be claimed. I had a bent alloy (noticed it when the odo read 9k) and got it repaired here in Delhi (fab job done). Odo is now at 34k and no issues at all and the tyre should still last 10k or more easily.
