    Any issue with the Clutch/gear shift should be checked and rectified immediately to be on the safer side. Is it all gears or any particular one?

    I had similar issue before CSC replacement. 3rd gear was a little difficult to engage. Post-CSC upgrade, it's butter smooth:). There seems to be some minor issue with reverse gear. Not to the extent that I should report it as an issue. Sometimes it doesn't slot properly.
    FYI: I did my 3rd free service last week at Concorde motors last week, the SA (Harish) was very helpful in getting all things done to my satisfaction.

    Only 1st gear, and sometimes 2nd gear is hard to engage. This started after CSC replacement, so need to get it checked.

    As Yashik said , get the system bled.

    Plus, get the gear cable checked for tightness/looseness.

    3rd free service is done.
    Gear still feels bit hard. Let me drive for someday and then take a call.

    Cost of servicing gone up, but don't mind, once a year, 2K extra is worth, for replacing all the fluids.

    Got Clutch kit replaced, under warranty and everything looks so nice. Clutch is so light now.

    I admire Fiat for never questioning and always ready to replace parts in warranty.

    I am yet to find out some good sticker shop.

    As per SA, elastic pad is actually struts elastic pads.
    My steering was making very small noise on turning, to they replaced it.

    You didn't read the vahanpujari's ownership thread. He also got it replaced under warranty.
