Hi folks, I'm back after a long hiatus. Lets see if we can kickstart this comatose thread into life again.
My Linea (1.4 Petrol) is still going strong at about 48,000 Km...the reason it hasn't done more is to do with the fact that I went in for a Swift Diesel in Jan 2012, and with Petrol not getting any cheaper, naturally, the Swift is driven more frequently.
Nonetheless, this puts me in a good position to compare the driving, handling, comfort and certain other characteristics of these two cars although one might argue that a petrol sedan and a diesel hatch are two different beasts altogether!
