    As mentioned earlier, check the review on forum for the details needed. Link below.

    In addition to the above, there are many detailed ownership reviews available here which covers many things about the car extensively, did you get a chance to check them too ?, if not please do.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    Is it okay to buy a 2012 linea Emotion model that has run 1.5 lakh kms. It is fully company maintained. They have done engine service at 145000kms. All have been changed Clutch plates, suspensions. And all other works are also done. After test driving the car, my mechanic said it is good. I also felt good while driving.I want to take your opinions too. The price is 3.50 lakhs. My question is-Is it worth to buy?

    It depends on how long you plan to keep the car. High Mileage do in fact give confidence on the capabilities of FIAT engine; but how much further you plan to rise the ODO. (Though high mileage car's aren't the first preference; but it could also relate to lot of high way running, which is better than city run)

    Please get all the service records and study them; for the work done so far. If any work has been done repeatedly or any major accidental repairs;please avoid the purchase.

    Price as per NCR standard, its around 10-15% higher. (Do keep a budget of another 30-40k for servicing/repair as per your finding/requirement)

    Also, please check the rusting. Though its pretty new (2012), but if it has always been parked in open and/or washed regularly; FIAT are notorious for rusting.

    Is it best to buy a used 2010 fiat linea or 2012 club class Manza?

    If you are Looking for Backseat Comfort and you are not driving the car Go for Manza. Fiat Linea for everything else. Look, Ride, Handling, Build Quality.

    @Rishik7 From your first post you have driven the Manza earlier. So have you owned a Manza earlier or have you just driven it. If you have owned one earlier, any specific reason you have sold it and wanting to go back to it again. Also Manza has the same engine and possibly a better tuned gear box too, having said that Iam not sure on the equipment levels in the club class in comparison with the 2010 Linea. Due check the pros and cons of both the cars and take an appropriate call. End of the day put your money on what you would be happy with.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.
