    My Linea Gets New Windshield

    On 1 October 2012, some few km ahead of Akpa check-post, Himachal Pradesh on NH 22, the traffic was stopped due to blasting and clearance of debris by BRO staff. So, I stopped my Linea and started clicking photographs. As the work seemed to take some more time, I sat inside my Linea. Then, I heard a 'tip' sound. The very next moment I saw at least two cracks on the windshield in front me.:( Then, I realised that a stone chip might have fallen from the mountain top on my Linea's windshield resulting in cracks.

    After returning to Bangalore, I took my Linea to the nearby Windshield Experts on Chord Road on 16 October 2012 and got a new one windshield for my Linea, bearing FIAT logo, costing Rs 6,250. I paid by credit card and did not claim insurance as the net amount that I would get was less than the no-claim bonus that I am enjoying now.

    Thanks, wolverine_arnab. I saw some cabs and trucks having cracked windshields. I think, they don't change their windshields just for cracks.
    Thanks for the compliments, puntosat.:)

    My Linea Is Worshipped

    My Linea was worshipped today on account of Ayudha Puja. My Suzuki Fiero and my son's Royal Enfield Classic 500 gave her company.

    I had already visited many of 106 Divya Desams including temples in Kanchipuram, Srirangam, Srivilliputtur, Azhagar Kovil, Mathura in UP, Thiruvananthapuram, Thiruvallikkeni, Thiruneermalai, etc. Regarding completing the remaining ones, I don't know, when that would happen! Thanks, Bala.
    Mine is 12 year old Suzuki Fiero, still going strong!:) Thanks, Suresh.

    Maintenance cost at 99 paise per km only at 56,200 km

    My Linea had a new set of 4 Good Year GT3 tyres costing Rs 4,400 each at Chandigarh at 52,000 km during my recent Himachal Pradesh trip. I topped up half-litre of the engine oil at Bilaspur. After returning to Bangalore, I again topped up another half-litre of engine oil emptying the 4-litre can of Selenia K that I had! My Linea has so far consumed about 5 litres of Selenia K for top-ups only apart from replacement during servicing. After updating these expenses, I find that my Linea's maintenance cost works out to mere 99 paise per km only at 56,200 km that she has run so far.

    Sir, 5ltr oil top-up is too much. Have you explored the cause of this ? I do observe oil top up required in my car too but must be Max 1ltr in between oil changes.
