    I casually asked this question to Bharat of KHT. As per him since the Linea is heavier and the power demand is higher, hence this problem is more in Linea than 90 hP punto.

    I think Linea has max 100kg extra weight than Punto ? Is it so sensitive ? Anyways FIAT must have done their research.
    In the back of my mind cannot rule out the possibility that if they had done the same for Punto it might adversly affect the sale, we all know Punto sells more than Linea and FIAT would not let that happen.

    Just to mention , today I left my car @KHT for 60K service including TChain replacement.

    Lucky you! In Bangalore, labor charge alone comes to 6k+

    Looks like it would be cheaper to drive down to Coimbatore and get it done. Cost effective and you get to go for a nice long drive :D

    Looks like you got only the timing chain replaced. Not the remaining parts of the kit. Else only the parts would cost 6.5 K IMO

    Today enquired inTASS abt my rides timing chain replacement which has ran till 74k kms.
    After the check by the mechanic he assured me that it can easily go till 1lac kms. So plan dropped abt changing the timing chain.
