    I did a Bangalore - Chennai trip day before yesterday and returned back home at Bangalore at 1:50 am today. I enjoyed the driving my Linea especially the return trip last night in heavy, non-stop downpour from Kanchipuram to Bangalore.

    My Linea returned 13 kmpl for the entire Bangalore-Chennai-Bangalore trip including inter and intra city driving with 5 people on board and ACC set at 20 deg C.

    The windscreen wipers worked almost non-stop for about 4 hours in all the three speeds. I found that the wipers' movement was not smooth but shaky at the minimum and intermediate speeds. But, they worked alright at the maximum speed. In all the three speeds, they wiped the windscreen perfectly clean. I shall take up the matter when my Linea goes for the second free service the next month.

    So you are back in India.
    I think Petrol Linea has excellent FE.

    Though I never had a chance to run wipers continuously for more than 30 mins. In my view if the wipers are cleaning properly, leave it as it is.

    Thanks, Ravi. Yes, I am back home, sweet home!

    Since the wipers wipe the windshield perfectly alright, it is okay for me, as you have rightly said.

    Yesterday, an inebriated idiot riding a scooter banged my Fiat Linea's left ORVM when I was waiting for signal at the Ring Road - Tumkur Road junction. The ORVM got back-folded with a minor scratch. After reaching home, I observed that the plastic part below the mirror was broken by that moron.

    Today, I visited Concorde Motors, Mysore Road and got the plastic part replaced at a cost of mere Rs 20! :)

    As regards to the wiper problem, the SA assured me that my Fiat Linea's wipers would be replaced FOC under warranty during the second free service sometime next month.

    Today, my fabulous Fiat Linea celebrates her first birthday. I wish her many more happy returns of the day. ::D

    She has done 8521 km in the last one year. But, she has got to cover 5000+ km in MH, GJ, RJ, UP & DL next month!
