      Lightbulb Fiat Palio Stile 1.3 MJD: Fiat is out with new clutch sytem. Need replacement?

      Hey guys,

      Today we got a call from Mr. Kodalkar. They are ready to roll out the new clutch system for Palio Stile 1.3 MJD. Please know that this is only for the aforementioned model. After months of investigation they are finally out with an improved clutch system and are going to replace it for all owners/users with issues.

      Please provide following details:
      1. Name of owner/user
      2. Contact number
      3. Vehicle registration number
      4. Preferred workshop

      Please send all details to himv@ovi.com or squid_rocks@yahoo.co.in.

      We're going to add any new members to the earlier list of 20 that we have from Jan/Feb.
      Please do not respond to this message with your details, but email them to the above ids. You can also email details to Pravin directly (sorry, do not have his id handy right now).

      Good luck

      Is this a free replacement? I would have thought most Palio MJDs would be out of warranty by now. Goodwill replacement?
      I don't know what's gonna happen man but I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames

      I'm not really sure about it. AFAIK, Fiat India is going to tackle this on a per case basis.

      Well. I've shared this information to all my friends who own a Fiat Palio Stile. Thank you Squid.

      OT: Did you manage to find a buyer for your car?

      No mate, did get a few queries, but had to postpone selling the car due to personal commitments.
      So have decided to keep it for a little while longer.

      Thanks for spreading the word. The first time we tried that, got only 20 responses. But it was good enough for us to build a case of manufacturing defect. We had to do a lot of pursuation with Fiat officials at all levels. Finally, Fiat took it head-on and came out with an improved clutch system.
      Many people approached us later on when the word spread about our success (wonder why no one wants to join the effort earlier on ???). But Fiat wasn't ready to accomodate the additions. But now, they've agreed to cover all owners who will respond. I just hope that owners/users are benefitted by what we've done.

      Can i still change the clutch.

      I have recently joined this forum and i have bought a 2nd hand Palio1.3 MJD in May 2012 which has clocked 80k and i too feel that the clutch is very hard. So will the Fiat India still replace the clutch for me and what will be the charges for the same. And please tell me whom can i contact on this issue.
