Re: IMHO the best 500x deal you will probably ever see

Just a bit more info regarding my car for anyone interested. I think the rest of the delivery mile examples might be the same.

I looked around and thought the car may have been implicated in the dieselgate affair and perhaps needed a recall, i can't find one. However then I looked on the DVSA website and it does for the concern "loss of drive" where it can apparently just change into neutral.

This was for models built between 12/2014 and 01/2016 and my VIN is towards the end of this range (85%). My feeling is the car I picked up was probably made Q4 2015. So essentially I bought a car nearly 2 years old, registered as a 66, and with 11 miles on the clock. To me it doesn't matter.

Still loving it btw
Thanks Alanw47 thanked for this post

I managed to clear this up by speaking to my local fiat dealer, he checked the VIN.

The car was subject to 3 recalls which have all been complete and there are none outstanding. Makes sense I suppose, as it had been at a main dealer till recently.

IMHO this engine WAS implicated in the 'dieselgate' affair and was subject to Recall 6025 because of it.

Details can be found on this thread here

Re: IMHO the best 500x deal you will probably ever see

I've been keeping an eye on the cars left for curiosity just to see how quick they go....slower than i expected. There was 19 in the beginning, then they added another at 600 more (toscana green). From those 20 there are 12 left.

What I found funny is the late addition at 13,599 didnt have the 1k+ of extras on that some have (at 12,999), yet sold. Silly people.
