Re: Transmission problems

I did inform the dealers in writing before the end of the six months that I was rejecting the vehicle but was advised by FCC to let the local dealer have another go. The local guys appeared to have fixed it but the fault came back again after the six months.

I will make some enquiries but I clearly made a mistake in not rejecting it. I would advise anyone with a problem with there Fiat to reject it maybe then Fiat will sharpen up their act.

Re: Transmission problems

To be fair the sales guy has been helpful and tried his best, it's FCC that are being unhelpful

I eventually got 200 worth of vouchers out of them for my inconvenience. Had to make sure I spent them all

Re: Transmission problems

The saga of my 500X clunking transmission goes on ! I have heard from the garage today that the Fiat Technical Guy has visited and not been able to suggest a fix for the clunking that occurs when I put my foot on the accelerator at around 30 - 40 mph. It's a 2 litre auto 4x4 that I bought new in February this year. I think this was the 11th visit having had all the engine/gearbox mounts replaced and 2 new driveshafts they are now suggesting it might be normal !

If you have a 500x the same as mine please could you let me know if yours has a clunking from the transmission, I am concerned that Fiat are going to try and wash their hands of this problem that the simply don't know how to fix

I can't go out and test mine for another 3 weeks as I'm on crutches, but I do get a kind of knocking through the transmission tunnel at times, and I have always put it down to being normal for that box. When I bought my car it was running really rough and the noise was far more obvious than when running smoothly. The dealership had my car for nearly 3 months trying to identify and fix the rough running, they MUST have heard it but never commented on it. I'm up to nearly 25k miles now and no issues with the box at all except for the noise which I tend not to notice much now.
