Hi FIATians.. Like all the new-comers thread, this too will be a story of how I got my Linea. Hope you will enjoy this thread. I am Aravindh VK, studying III year Automobile Engineering in SRM University, Chennai. My native is Salem. Starting with the time when I got the awareness that a car named Linea is on wheels in India, lets go back to 2009. My mother is a doctor in Salem. She used to have meeting on 3rd Sundays in the IMA hall. One of that Sundays, The people of TrueSaiWorks had put a stall there and at the first sight I fell in love with Linea. From that, I was forcing my parents to change our car but my bad time, I entered 12th. After completing it I wished to enter SRM, so they told to choose whether Linea or SRM. Thinking that Linea can be bought after a couple of years, but I can’t enter SRM after that, I selected SRM. And I kept dumb for an year, then I started my second round. This time, since our Indica was getting older, they too decided to change the vehicle. The first comment on Linea which I got is “Nobody buys FIAT, why should you do so??” The reply I made for it is, “Say only if there is any Technical fault in Linea”. The next comment is “This car doesn’t have a good Resale value”. For that I told ”If people like us start buying it, It will automatically increase”. And I added that everyone will look back at linea once it crosses. At last, we booked the Linea 1.3MJD Emotion. The waiting period was 10 days. I got the vehicle on 2nd July 2012, 5:45 pm. Oops!! The next day I have to go to college since my third year was starting on 4th July. Next day I drove 365kms from my home to college. After 25 days in college, ran back to home for linea. This time I went at 165 kmph on the Salem-Coimbatore highway which is my memorable event in my lifetime. But I can hear very minute noises from the rear seat. But that doesn’t matter for me because I am experiencing one of the best driving pleasure even at higher speeds. And now my parents too started loving our Linea. Whenever I drive with my parents, I will point out the people who are starring at this beauty at signals. That gives a proud as if I am in a Ferrari. And I am happy to be a part of our ooty meet. This is my first ever brief post in any website. Waiting for your comments, Yours FIATfully, Aravindh VK.
