Pros : Great appeal, better features and pleasure to own.

Cons : Service backup and few features given in Manual not actually present in the Top end Model

I brought The top end Linea Emotion Pack in April 2009, Since then it is getting very sick and is frequently admitted in the Dealers Service station at Trivandrum. It suffered from the following diseases. 1) It was delivered with painting errors (corrected not to my Satisfaction) 2) It developed drop of pickup in 2nd Gear and Fuel Gauge showing false readings (Fuel pump replaced) 3) Water trapped both Rear Lamp Clusters (Both Lamp clusters replaced) 4) Fuel Leak in full tank ( Fuel tank replaced from their Demo Vehicle as there is no spare) 5) Break oil leak (Container replaced) 6) Frequent unavailability of ABS (Corrected) 7) Time for tyre rotation was not mentioned. More wear in front tyres.(After lot of enquiry rotation done at 7000Kms 8) Wiper fluid tank leak. (replaced) 9) Wiper fluid pumped at very high pressure such that fluid reaches up to the Dicky.(Not corrected so far) 10)Noise from rear left door since delivery.(Not corrected so far) 11)Loud rattling noise from stearing Column. (Corrected after >5 Service) 12) False reading in Fuel Gauge developed once again. (Not corrected even after 2 attempts. waiting for spare) I am very glad to visit service center more than once in a month....

    Man, this is too much! its better to file a complaint at the consumer court and get your money back. I went for test driving linea at kuluthungal and was satisified with the performance. How ever, i booked honda city as I didnt want to take risk (9 lakhs is a big money for middle class people). After reading your review am convinced that my decision was right!!! Thanks buddy for sharing your experience.

    Why buy a honda Better go and buy two OX then you will have a ride on bullock cart save the environment from poisonous exhausts gases and you will have ox dung used as a manure also the dung can be dried and used as fuel for cooking food why waste 9 lakhs ????????? also if you have got some fertile land you can use the ox to plough your field and grow crops, why waste of money, instead help the poor with that money they will give you blessing and carry you on their shoulders instead of a honda

    Thanks for saving me from a big damp

  • Girish |06 Aug,2010 11:56:13 PM

    Is it also due to the poor road conditions of Kerala where you were driving through? You review alone appears absolutely contradictory to many others appearing here. Hence asked

  • rahul |11 Aug,2010 07:12:32 PM

    man u r hyping the things very much, i cant believe that a car can give so many problems and electrical faults at the same time.. even my friends are having this car, they have no complaints with it.... and i think you got a faulty piece and you should have gone to the consumer court.....

  • Dr NRS |16 Aug,2010 06:12:08 PM

    No hype, actually I have not mentioned many other complaints. In fact I have asked to replace the Vehicle with new one. I have filed a suit in Consumer court.

    This is not a review but an actual experience!Now i am on a second thought of buying Linea.

  • Dr N Raja Sekar |15 Nov,2010 09:30:59 PM

    If anybody owns the High end Emotion Pack Model, Please go through the Owners Handbook and check for the A/C vents in the car. Most of the vents were not there.

  • bharat |23 Nov,2010 10:25:02 AM

    hey guys its a good car...and no complains , depends on ur driving....reallly its value for money vehicle........... i am happy and proud to be a owner of car.......

  • Dr N |23 Nov,2010 07:05:50 PM

    Hi Bharat Is absence of AC vents depends on Driving?

    bharat bahnsali |05 Dec,2010 10:41:33 PM

    ya little..not much......

    Dr N |05 Dec,2010 11:17:10 PM

    Check with User Manuel, The foot level AC vents(not knee level) and front both leg side vents not present.

    abhishek |20 Jan,2011 01:34:40 AM

    hi bharat i saw ur review about fiat linea emotion pack (diesel) i also saw bad comments about the car but i am very much intrested to buy this car as this will be my first car i need some serious advice on this, i want to buy a diesal car only and i want to use it very smoothly i dont need speed of 140 or 150. what is need to know is that is the milage promisingly 15 atleast ? and what about maintaince ? PLZ suggest because i dont see anyother car better than this

    Gauravjit |09 Feb,2011 04:53:00 PM

    hey abhishek, i own Diesel Epk, wonderful car, not a single problem, Excellent ride quality, the only thing is the Ground Clearance but if you drive it like a sedan should be driven then you won't get any problems. P.S : Half of the people here bashing Linea do not own it. If you want to authenticate my comment, leave you mail id here, i'll contact you. Every Car Manufacturer and car has its share of problems, the important thing is the company is looking into the problem or not. Even Maruti had problems with fuel gauge, Hyundai with Ac performance.

  • muralidhara |17 Dec,2010 10:18:42 PM

    I intend to purchase linea emotion pack petrol..... but worried much after reading the reviews about ground clearance , a/c performance and pickup .......

    We bought a linea emotion pack diesal in 2011.we were dismayed to find dat when we went to take our new car there were muliple dents like something had fallen on the car,scratches all over the car,like itwas used.we were forced to buy the the car saying we had booked for it.they corected d dents n painted the car n gsve it to us.we found dat the disdiesal car gave us only 10 km/hr after spending 10lakhs for also had squeaky noises while driving,rolling to left which never got corrected.repairs followed car brokedown one midnight service people said some problem with alternater switch.we changed dat for 17,000Rps.still it is happening everymorning car battery wont was followe by complaints osradiator coolent,problem with ac.not to mention the poor suspension of the car every hole in the road is felt.some vibrations are felt on the steering as as well,gear got tightened v had to change it.service people are saying engine has gone all rusty n corroded dat dey cant remove its nuts n bolts.while writing this also car is with service people dey are sayi we have to change battery.since one hslf years have passed there is no warranty fo it.we are totally dismayed.we feel linea company shouldt sell their poor quality cars n stop cheating us.we also took the car from kulathungal motors.they act surprised n act likw v did to the car.this pist shiws dat v r not alone.

    Dr N Raja Sekar |18 Nov,2012 02:34:03 PM

    Sir, Insist on warranty, don't pay anything and ask them to rectify it. Talk to Mr Ajay Harry Pothen. Dr N Raja Sekar 9443909686
