Sad to have raved about it
By carreview5 on
2012 FIAT 500 Pop 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)
When I bought this car I was really excited and raved about it to all my friends. I expected nothing but great things from this little car and really started saving a lot of money in Gasoline purchases. (Was getting 42+ MPG by driving reasonably and not being aggressive with it, its not a racer) 27,000 miles into it, the clutch failed (in rush hour traffic no less) and Fiat claims that it was just worn out. All calls for Customer Service ended in no help what-so-ever. Fiat is not ready to return to the American car market. Do not purchase this car.
The clutch replacement at the studio costs 10 percent of the price of the car.
It was Blue
Check out the NHTSA website. 6 of 41 (at the time of this writing) safety complaints are the clutch failing in traffic.
