    Important things first -- here's a peek of my brunette taken enroute to Chirala in August, 2012.

    My intro to the group is long pending, so apologies for not keeping with the courtesies of the forum. I have been on it since March, 2012.

    I am based out of Hyderabad and had been driving my dad's Santro a long time. When the time came for a switch, though i started the search for a hatch, i ended up with a sedan. To be fair, i succumbed to the temptation when I saw the Linea. Her lines were elegant, extremely well proportioned and there was nothing over-the-top. The simplicity of the interior turned out just the way i like it. The feature list and specs appealed to my head. I found no other car offering the features i got with the Linea at my price point.

    There was always a nagging feeling about Fiat's reputation w.r.t servicing & spare parts. A good friend of mine who had owned a Linea since 2010 advised me not to touch the car with a barge pole! He just had a lot of pain with its servicing and spare parts. So, i decided to stay away and hold the buy decision.

    That was until I then found this forum and began reading the posts. I must tell you the passion i saw amongst you good people convinced me that this was the car to buy. Some of the travelogues were inspirational. It took me back to the days when i found myself swimming against popular opinion about buying an Enfield Bullet. Then again, it was a great bullet forum and the places people were going on the bike that convinced me to press ahead. I bought the bike and it have thoroughly enjoyed its troublesome pleasure since then (weird eh?). It has been a very educative relationship and I'm discovering the same thing with the Fiat.

    I've had her for a little over 6 months now and though there were a few naggles in the beginning, she's come around quite nicely. We recently did a trip to Chirala (about 350 km from Hyderabad) and I thoroughly enjoyed the drive and the performance of the car on the highway. She's definitely one for the big roads. And that's one of my primary needs -- travel and explore our beautiful country.

    Mate congrats on your beauty :)
    I am sure you would love to cruise around in your ride across the country. Minor niggles are there in every car but the ride quality and the peace of mind when you cruise around in this car makes up for everything...
    Wishing you a million happy miles.

    Congratulations on the Bluenette. The Active model without the side chrome strips looks even more muscular! Now that FIAT has launched the moulded mudflaps, you can enquire with the dealer regarding the same.

    The Linea's natural proving grounds are the open highways indeed.

    Cheers.
