    Are lower arm and strut pads covered in warranty? Recently had gone for 1400 kms towards interior andhra and could hear lot of noise Khat Khat during pot holes and speed breakers.

    The lower arm of the car is not covered under warranty as the damage of it is termed as wear n tear but the strut pads are covered under warranty. The ball joint is not a seperate part in the log as Fiat does not sell ball joint as a piece. To get the ball joint replaced, you need to change the Rack of the car and that is completely covered under warranty.

    I have same issue with my linea emotion pk 2009 model, there was some noise from front shockabsorbers so I asked my mechanic to have a look and he said ball joint need replacement along with steering ball joint (never heard of this)
    I am tired of local mechanics as they only want to make money and zero in the name of service
    Coming to the point, I am finding it hard to get the suspension done because 1. Fass is quoting 17k + labour 2. Local mechanic here at vishrsntwadi (pune) can't be trusted

    Please some one help me with good options available in pune
    Also , any one knows a good place to get glass polishing and headlight buffing done ?

    Thanks

    @Nia stick to FASS. Skymoto has upped their service levels as per a report or two. And so has Jayvijay. If warranty is not an issue Pandit still handles jobs and pretty reasonable and with highest satisfaction levels based on majority reports. @Lunafiatic @kedarbendre @mchanna

    @Nia please visit Pandit Auto @ Bhosari MIDC.

    They also have the windshield and Headlight buffing services at their service center.

    IMG-20160203-WA0056.jpg Can this be pushed back or fixed without loosing full integrity? This was a new lower arm which failed due to a pot hole.

    @Nia before you finalize on local mechanic or FASS, visit pandit and take anil or rahuls opinion.
