What is the total odometer reading as of now?
It's 25K as of now. Earlier when the replacement happened in 2015, the reading was 14K. Seems like 9K is the difference and we need to replace the Clutch Kit; Fly Wheel.
9k is too low.
Do you have problems while engaging the 1st, 2nd and reverse gears or all of the gears?
After the problem you mean? No issues in engaging into gears. It's just that there is no acceleration or very minimal acceleration.
How are you sure it is not the turbo?
I took it to the AV Motors service center and they confirmed it's due to Clutch burn out.
Can someone please send me Fiat India and Fiat Global's email addresses and contact numbers, if possible? I saw on TeamBHP that there was a similar incident for another T Jet owner.
Many thanks Soumik. Do you also happen to know the Global Fiat email address? Many thanks in advance.
Some update on my current issue is...
After I dropped a note to Mangesh; they responded to provide a 20% off on parts and 25% off on labor as one time good will offering. I wanted to speak to them. No one from Fiat actually tells me how different to drive a T-Jet than a normal car. Owner's manual has no intimation on how we need to operate a T-Jet.
Clutch kit : 9,600/-,
Fly wheel : 32,680/-
Release bearing : 8,700/-
Labor : 3,800/- and (Service Tax) (T&C)
Seems like around 45K is the hole in my pocket.
@Krishna Menon - well nothing really can console you now. Buying a car against market perception and then something like this happens. It's hugely frustrating.
But then it's a machine and nothing more, which can fail.
Further, there is no as such technique for driving Tjet. It's absolutely similar to other cars.
Hope this is the last major hole in ur pocket with tjet
