WARNING - Dangerous vehicle
By wikolia on


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


while driving in left hand hand lane of I-95 in FL, (blood alley) the engine shut down and I had to drift over 2 lanes to the hard shoulder.
got towed to dealership where the valve actuator, camshaft and generator had to be replaced.
this vehicle had only 6000 miles on it.
after NO help from dealership or FIAT corporate office I have no faith in this brand at all.
I'm lucky to be alive.
please note this is an automatic vehicle. there was no option for automatic in the dropdown menu.
