2012 Fiat 500 Sport 1.4 Multi-air from North America
1) Armrest snapped off.
2) Windshield wipers go off and on as they please.
3) Bad ball joint on passenger side.
4) Tires wear down quickly.
5) CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON (FLASHING), making the car almost impossible to drive, causing it to guzzle gas and lose all power.
6) Transmission is a joke, constantly shifting gears.
AWFUL PEOPLE AT THE FIAT DEALERSHIP.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
Review Date: 7th June, 2014
Well, now you know why FIAT = Fear, Insecurity, Anxiety & Terror.
Sounds like a review from the bad old days of FIAT in North America.
Aren't fear and terror the same thing?
Think up something else (and NOT Fix It Again, Tony, either).
To June 9, 21:17...
In the shop, always
At a permanent stop
I hope that makes you happy.
FIAT tell me that because I didn't have the spark plugs changed at 32,000 miles, it caused the coil pack to fail and now it needs a new coil pack and tune up at 34,000 MILES!!!
I didn't write the comment, but you could easily change the word "Terror" to "Trouble" & it might just sum up the Fiat experience. At least in the bad old days when they used to practically rust out in the showroom.
Sometimes when sales are slow, the dealership has to make money from parts and service. Sounds like you have a dealership that is pushing service on you.
Most modern spark plugs should last at least 50,000 miles.
Also if you can, avoid dealership service and parts. eBay and other parts sites have such great deals on car parts, and the internet is filled with information on how to do most things on cars... from tune-ups to replacing major items.
Also, running a dealership is very, very expensive... so anytime you go there to do anything; buying a car, getting a part, getting a service; doing anything; it is going to cost you.
The car is still not repaired. Now they are saying it's the cylinder head. I'm so disgusted; I've never had a new car act like this before... well except a dreadful 1998 Dodge Neon I bought new back in 97... but that's another nightmare.
