Pros : looks nothing else

Cons : mileage, service, air conditioner

I own a linea top model fully loaded version. lot of problems: 1. air conditioner does not work effectively, you feel like sitting in front of a cooler not an AC 2. the mileage is 5-8kmpl. i have decent driving skills. i drive an maruti esteem as well as get 14kmpl out of that. 3. finishing of the car is not good - you will find many loose ends, especially in the bonnet 4. service centre is pathetic. just visit them once and see for yourself - no one to attend to the customer. no delivery on time (it takes 2 days for them to service, you give the car today and get it tomorrow!!) best part is, my car is only 20days old and these are the set of problems i face... imaging the older ones :) btw, you can test drive one vehicle which is old and you will notice the gear box is not smooth at all.

    sorry for this, but any crazy driver for that matter doesn't derive 5-8 kms on the linea.i own a linea emotion petrol which hugs and roars across corners and most of all provides 12 kms with a better ac than the city.dude get real man,nobody gets a reign of award streak from the saloons across the world.

    It is strange to see your comments on linea. I have emotion touched 13000 Kilometers just five months but I still feel it is obsolutely new n enjoyable riding with good mileage with a better ac

    Hi, there!! None of your descriptions matches with my experience with the Linea. I've done around 17500kms and found performance of all parameters quite satisfactory. Yes, I do agree the A/C, at times, and the ground clearance are the two major drawbacks of this vehicle. However, depending on driving style / skill one can definitely overcome the clearance problem - only thing is that you have to be l'il more cautious on bad roads. So is the case with the mileage part - at steady speeds you do get satisfactory ratios. i've tried at an average of 120kmph for 15-20kms

    I also agree with the comments. linea is fully packed car it provides all you need compare to other cars of this segment. Here Mrigank says about two problems of this vehicle, i have also faced low ground clear problem but that can be managed if driven carefully on bad road conditions. I drive linea about 12500km and didn't face A.C. problem and mileage also 15-16kmpl in local & 17-18kmpl on highway. If you drive the latest version of Linea i.e. 2012 that resolve all these issues. I also need help on service part of this vehicle as 1st service of my car is going to be done on 15000km. Pls. share the details of costing on service of this vehicle.

  • ramesh |03 Aug,2010 09:53:58 PM

    I agree linea gives average of around 15 km/litre
