fiat linea poor airconditioning , mileage, pick up

for Active

I have a fiat linea petrol . on delivery the airconditioning was very weak. On my first service i pointed out this problem to bharathi automobiles ,service partner of fiat. inspite of this the problem persisted. the service engineer mr walter at bharati said he will call me when the service manager from fiat comes to his service station. In the hot summer i sweat with the airconditioning on. the car is very poor on mileage 7kpl and pickup. the engine power doesnot match with its heavy weight and therefore very poor on climbs and elevated roads bijith

I own a Fiat Linea Dynamic for almost 6 months now... and feel that it is a great car. Mine certainly has no a/c problems since it chills all passengers when the automatic is below 20 C. The Car has an average of 10 Kmpl with Ac on and is very comfortable and gives the feeling of driving a luxury sedan. It has a not so good pickup on 3rd gear but changed my driving to shift directly to 2nd when quick acceleration is needed especially while overtaking and on 2nd it has a very high acceleration. The engine is very silent and rarely ever heard with ac on. Managed to touch 165 Kmph on pune express highway with 5 passengers and full boot and still the car was rock steady with no vibration or noise, it inspires a lot of confidence at high speeds unlike verna, however the irony is that with its 1.4l engine and its massive size its top speed is not as high as one would like it to be, wish it would come with a 1.6 L or more variant. The only problem i have sometimes so far is with the reverse gear not always clicking in when shifted, but that also happens rarely. The Fiat service via Tata motors is however truly pathetic.
