    I too was offered feedback, twice in my case. The first was telephony & the second was supposed to be face to face which was not executed as I am nearly 120 Km form dealer:(

    Can you please advise which android app you use? I could locate two apps called as MyCar in Google Play. One with the car icon and the other with a smiley.

    Also, how is the data to be fed manually into the app after every trip / refuel ?

    Kindly advise.

    Hello Omar,

    The app is the one which the logo of a green car smily. Yes, we need to manually input the data after every refill and it hardly takes 30 sec. I usually do it when standing next to the fuel dispenser and the app is really helpful.

    Congrats Pradeep. It was your destiny to own a FIAT and it is the same destiny that makes all of us proud owners of FIAT and your story has vindicated this fact once more.

    FIAT is not for faint hearted people who cannot see beyond Maruti or Hyundai. It takes a lot of courage, determination and enthusiasm to choose and maintain a FIAT and these traits makes all of us stand different from the crowd.

    Personally I still love the old linea looks over new one both INT & EXT. The driver arm rest is cut half to avoid interruption during gear change which sometimes is annoying when you shift gear in the old design models.

    All the Best.

    Thank you for your reply Pradeep. I have downloaded the app. Will play around with it to see how it works.

    Spent a few hours today in getting both the cars cleaned, felt good after looking at the end result.

    Really, sir ,you are making Fiat cars sound like Enfield Bullet. I dont think I took a courageous and determined decision to buy a Fiat. It is really just like buying any other car. The cars have decent economics, exhilarating driving pleasure and decent levels of reliability.
    It is Fiat's own poor sales and marketing that has shoved the cars to a tiny corner of the sales chart.That is what makes one overstate the niche value of the car. The appalling resale values are a reality check.

    I find the older one very comfortable and hard to live without. Infact I disliked the fact that it was not a standard on all variants of Punto/Linea. It can be lifted out of the way for those who find it cumbersome. It is good for long journeys and not an issue at all for moderate driving which I prefer. OTOH I would like to know if the newer design works as well as old one.

    Hello Mate,
    The newer design solves the purpose to a certain extent, however I too love the longer handle which can be moved out of the way if need be. Personally Iam very used to the hand rest even in city commute as I feel more comfortable to just throw my arm on it and relax the muscles .
