Ok..so I wrote the above review after having the car in my possession for less than a week. I do still love my car...however..I've had a lot of issues with it over the 2.5 months I've owned it. Helfman Fiat of Houston has NOT really done much to help me. They say to call Fiat(USA) and they refer me back to the dealership. I've had two issues with the brakes..(once at 300 miles and again at 900 miles). My car is a manual transmission and it's jumped out of 4th gear twice. Both times it's scared the crap out of me. They couldnt find anything wrong with the car either time. The leather bagging around the shifter has come unattached and is currently dangling. It's literally falling apart. The most current issue is the paint on the hood. My car is red. My hood has a burnt orange circle about the size of a basketball on the passenger area of the hood, right over where the radiator reserve is. It's so hot it's cooking the paint front underneath. I'm taking it BACK in tomorrow. Dont know how they'll repair it without actually repainting it...which will make it look as though it's been in an accident. My car only has 1609 miles on it as of right now. Currently looking up info on Lemon Laws. With my experience..I would say DO NOT BUY THIS CAR. The dealerships are shoddy...the 800 numbers will get you no where. I'm at the point of picketing in front of the dealership and telling everyone that'll listen, my story.Report it
