@cgujral Maruti Van, 800, Indica Hyundai santro, ascent these cars are lightweight cars. Heavy car more load on clutch while working of clutch. Clutch of light weight cars last longer than heavy weight cars. Replacement of clutch after 40000 k.m. of linea & Punto is acceptable. I had replaced clutch of my former 75 HP GP at 35000. Replaced sturts & elastic pads after 35000 KM in warrantee. IMHO safety,buid quality,excellent ride & handling these characters are in FIAT then we should not complain about clutch & suspension wear. Finally what you want ? If anybody want only maniac acceleration,risk of injury,cold-drink can quality bulid quality,milege then go for Korean/Jap cars. If you want safety,buid quality,excellent ride & handling then FIAT is the wise choice.
