@Relativity..what sound do you hear on humps?
I hear a squeaking sound...on every hump..
Same here. So they agreed to replace it under warranty or did you ask them to do it?
Me too having the same problem, mine is also 3.5 months old,
My 2012 Linea had this problem and after a lot of chasing, Fiat sent their technical expert to Hyderabad to take a look. After investigating it, they said they wouldn't be able to spot weld it and hence used a cavity filler (sounded like some sort of a glue for this specific purpose) to get rid/dampen of the rattle. The cabin now is substantially quieter, though the rattle hasn't disappeared 100%.
Do we know how serious this welding issue is? Can it degrade into something more serious later (a structural problem)? My question really is whether the symptom has been cured at the cost of the root cause?
Expert thoughts from the forum will really be appreciated!
I can feel that the shocker is week + there is dreaded sound from the back right door...
I agree. Fiat should know the cause and should issue a recall and fix this free of cost for all affected cars. But I know they won't. We will need to get it fixed from TASS or outside.
Feb 2012 Linea. Front Left door has a constant tick-tick sound, this has been there from day one. I have completed 12000 kms, each one was covered with music from the door. TASS could not fix it during the first service, they promised to help our during the second service. Lets hope it is fixed. Otherwise the car is doing great, feels solid, safe and comfortable.
FIAT sells 150+ps models of the Linea in Brazil, here in India we get souped up hackback engine in a car that pleads for a larger heart. Give this machine a larger heart and D segment cars will be worried about their status (looks, comfort and power)
Same here. I have it the front left door from day 2 and now in the front right door too. Front right door disappears when u put pressure. (I guess they need to tighten the door pad)
same here if i press the door...noise is gone
