Pros : Looks

Cons : Extremely Poor Ground Clearance,AC useless, After Sales service Pathetic,

Comfort : OK  Pickup : Poor Mileage : fair Best Features Nothing Great Needs to improve Everything, Ground Clearance/ AC Cooling/Central Locking/After Sales Service I dont think anybody should be opting for FIAT as you will waste your hard earned money. My car has been in the garage more than 12 times in last six months. Even if you email to the CEO he will not respond. Overall Experience Disgusting

    Why on earth someone will use AC in November month in NCR region? and you complaining about AC Cooling, this shows you are a Fiat Basher.

  • Shweta Arora |18 Dec,2010 03:32:02 PM

    I agree .. my car have seen the sight of that wasted workshop 8 times already in 6 months ... and whats not a joke here is that the CEOgenuinely doesnt respond !!! TATA motors has taken more than it can chew!!! I wonder what the Jag owners think if Linea customers are going thru!!! Guess the next steps should be taking them to consumer court!!

    You can definetly go for linea.I am using emotion diesel and getting 19-20 km/ltr.Offcourse ground clearance is an issue.But this can be take care if you are not rash driver.I use this car for the last 16 months in reall gatt areas.In idikki dist in kerala.The after sale service by tata need to be improved.Don't compare with toyota or honda.Tata is as dsesi as our olden period and so expect a gvt. office treatment.

    hai, My name is Gopan, from malappuram,i just plan to buy a car ,my first preference is FIAT LINEA,Can you Please share your experience with liena.i prefer you because of you are located in idduki.its hi-range area na. i'm also,,so please send me your experience, actually i'm in saudi arabia, this mob number is my brother in low's, In this case your immediate reply is highly appreciative

    royabraham |15 Oct,2013 09:57:33 AM

    MR: GOPAN, As per my experience,Linea is a good CAR. I did not experience any technical issue for the last 52500 KM i covered. The only problem is its low ground clearance & low tyre mileage.You will get 20-22 K , KM for a new tyre in the front . The after sale service was very poor by TATA,but we can expect better now since it is by Fiat itself now.Previously we always felt FIAT is an orphen in india with parents in Italy. Now we expect better service from the parents itself who has come to India. One thing you should consider is the spares cost.It is highest for fiat.The Labour charges for regular service is also high when compare to toyota/ford/maruthi.etc... hope fiat will do a market study in india to fix the rates at par with the other std companies operate in india.Any way the car is very good but the support from the maker is not up to the espectaion

    Sushrut |03 Feb,2011 10:35:11 PM

    I dint expect this from CarDekho guyz say Honda maintenance is low....well not at all..if u compare the spare prices honda is most expensive in this segment.....and in Linea u get some features like blue and me which only Linea has. And u even get 16 inch alloys and a turbocharged petrol engine which no other car in class has got.And above all this it is cheaper than the city.

    Jeet |09 Feb,2011 04:43:49 PM

    Don't go by any website reviews, ask for spares parts price list from Honda and Fiat. Compare it you'll come to know . I did the same and result is Fiat Linea's Maintenance cost is way less than Honda City. Shame on you CarDekho team, for such a biased comment.

  • sj |04 Apr,2011 02:10:03 PM

    hi... can any body help me in deciding between SX4 diesel and Linea Diesel... I have also heard that Hyundai is coming up with new verna.. when they are launching new verna and what about specs and prices...

  • CarDekho Team |04 Apr,2011 02:15:17 PM

    The new Verna is launching this month ie April 2011. The SX4 and the Linea are both powered by the same Fiat MJI Diesel engine, maintenance on the SX4 is better and cheaper as its an Maruti. Take your pick or wait for the New Verna.

  • Prasanna k |03 May,2011 07:21:38 AM

    Hi, What do you get by bashing FIAT? DO you think Honda City has good ground clearance? Have you seen how many Hondo City engines getting damaged in Chennai potholes? I have seen it. TJET is great car. Honda City is no way comparable to it. Regards, Prasanna

  • CarDekho Team |01 Aug,2011 12:17:41 PM

    @ rajiv saha - The Linea is a good car overall especially the Diesel version. Its got the typical European looks and handling and the fit and finish is good. The diesel motor has enough power and is also high on fuel efficiency.

  • RAJINDER |11 Aug,2011 07:15:32 PM
