first let me say the service dept has been as helpful as they can trying to get my car fixed and to get fiat corp to cover it, but here's the rest of my experience with fiat.
my 2014 500L fiat got a little over 40,000 miles on the first transmission. a new one was installed at the dealer. it lasted about 60,000 now it's no good either. fiat offered to help pay for it. but would still leave me paying several thousand for a car that might go 40,000-60,000 miles before it will break again. the first transmission was a faulty design, instead of fiat putting a better designed one in for a replacement, fiat put another one that has proven to be faulty. i asked the dealer if they would buy the car from me, but was told no.(no offer was even made and no one even looked at it to consider it) even a few thousand would leave them able to make money and made me a little happy considering. but if a fiat dealer doesn't think they could buy a car and fix it and still make money on it seen they have them listed for $11,6000. how much are their cars really worth?
