2012 FIAT 500 Pop 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car in august of 2012.
RED, inside and out.
I fell in love with the look.
Bad idea.
As soon as I took in on the highway the first time, the ABS sensor fell off.
Then as soon as it spent one night in a snow bank), shocks were noisy.
I can't remember how many garage visits, but they were never able to fix it.
Then, the transmission failed, I was unable to press the clutch pedal.
then again this winter, the same issue with the shocks after another night in the snowbank.
Avoid this car at all costs.
Dealer as well as Fiat Canada were extremely unhelpful too.
Thank god another dealer was a lot more helpful.
Got rid of the thing last week and bought a Toyota.

Quality and Reliability of all types of components. Dealer and FIAT responsiveness to issues. Better yet, just don't sell this car anymore.
