Hi,
Linea T jet is a good selection for its styling,reliability and interior fit and finish.You can go ahead with the same.

Hi Manish,

Congratulations - you have made a great decision.

I purchased TJet after some good research, comparing it with other cars in that segment. I have been owning the car for the past two weeks, done 700km. I purchased the car for its looks, ride(GC, suspension, 205 tyres), safety (Euro ), handling(steering, cornering), torque/driveability (no other petrol in its segment approaches 200NM forget about exceeding it), advanced features (bluetooth, 16 inch alloy, MID, MyCar, Follow-me-home, remote bootlid, fully foldable rear seats, FPS, auto climate control, rear ac vent,.....) and extras.

I did not purchase for mileage, I was mentally ready for a single digit mileage - 8.5/9 kmpl.I was given to understand that ANHC is the mileage petrol champion in the segment.My friend who has ANHC claims 10.5 in city and 15 during long drives. But surprise, surprise! I get 10.7 kmpl in city and 14kmpl in long drives during run in period! If this improves by 0.5 - 1 Kmpl after run-in, I will be eating my cake and having it too!

What I did not like -
dealership exp could have been better
Speakers are only average
No bottle holders inside

Hope this helped. All the best.

THANKS SHRINATHJI FOR GIVING YOUR REVIEW AND SPENDING YOUR PRESCIOUS TIME. MY CAR IS GOING TO BE DELIVERED ON 27-1-2011 FROM ASPI MOTORS PVT. LTD., AHMEDABAD. I HAVE ALSO MADE RESEARCH ON NET FOR GOOD CARS AND AFTER BRAIN STORMING HAVE DECIDED TO BUY LINEA T-JET. HOWEVER, IT IS QUITE COSTLY AS COMPARED TO VENTO AND HONDA CITY. HOWEVER, FUNCTION WISE IT SCORES POINTS. I HAVE MADE THE DECISION EVENTHOUGH MY NEARS AND DEARS HAVE TOLD ME THAT I AM MAKING A WRONG DECISION AS FIAT HAS RUINED ITS IMAGE AND EVENTHOUGH LINEA HAS BEEN LAUNCHED BEFORE MORE THEN 2 YEARS AND T-JET BEOFRE MORE THAN 3 MONTHS THE SALES FIGURES ARE NOT INCREASING. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE REASONS. HOWEVER, WITH SOMEWHAT FEAR I HAVE MADE THE DECISION THAT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF MY DECISION MAY GO WRONG. I WOULD BE SCOLDED BY MY NEAR AND DEARS AND WITH LIFE LONG REMEMBER THE DECISION. HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND THE CAR BECOMES THE RIGHT DECISION. HOWEVER, THNAKS AGAIN.
