Though I tried my best not to be very critical about my Linea but then I have to tell you truth without any biasness. Small ownership tenure of just about 8 months is like a nightmare for me and I felt completely cheated by this Italian manufacturer. MyLinea is hardly 8 months old with and odometer showing 14 k mark, I have innumerable problems to tell. I start with my biggest disappointment with the car i.e. its AC which is simply not up to task and the summer just passed by is proof of its weak operating capacity. Though I started feeling the heat right from the start of April; it was the month of May end and June in which I was completely put off by its lack of cooling. I felt scorching heat inside the cabin even with full speed of AC. And even after checking it twice at service centre problem remained intact. So most of times I traveled with open windows in the peak summers season and that was like a bad dream for me. On one of my trips to Amravati from Nagpur, I had traveled in hot and humid air with open windows as AC was completely unable to do its job. Another complaint I am having with Linea is rusting problem that its paint has caught at such early period of purchase. It’s not even a year old car and within such short period problem of rusting has started. Rear bumper has caught rust initially and now left hand side of front face is showing the same signs. Again I discussed this with the company’s authorised dealership but didn’t get any satisfactory reply about the cause of this problem. Also the problem that caused a lot of distress during the initial days of ownership was with its engine. I found that at particular speed above 80 km/h mark my car used to lose the response for some time. I felt like everything ceases to operate. For next some time no reaction was generated and only on applying brakes, I gained the control back. This was very weird and caused a lot of irritation especially during the overtaking manoeuvre. I had to get the car three times to dealership in order to get it repaired. Initially they replaced the timing belt but problem still persisted and after around 15 days they finally able to detect the fault which was with the ECU of Linea. An early failure of such a critical part severely affected my confidence on brand Fiat. Although it was not at all a smooth journey I have had with Linea so far, still there are some positives of carI want to tell. 1. Handling of the Linea is just excellent. Steering wheelis very positive and I just love the feedback. 2. Braking ability of car is another positive amid the cluster of negative aspects. I feel very assured even on the slippery surface.
