Jammysod, I went to reg vardy in stockton just after I got my Stilo for some mats. The guy couldn't have been more helpfull, showed me alround, showed me various Styling accessories and said anything I needed, they could get! They even knocked 5 off the price of my mats! Great!

Until I got my Brio catalogue, I looked up the price of my standard mats for which I paid 20 (remember that included a discount!), and found the RRP to be 13(plus change). A little annoyed I rang Reg Vardy to ask their price. I was told 13!

So I pointed out what I had payed, he did apologise and say it was a mistake, which it may have been, but I must say I wasn't impressed![:(!]

So the moral? They ripped me off for 7, and in the process lost possibly hundreds, or even thousands in future business[xx(]

Forward Autos in St Helens, they are not a charity and will not make any money out of fixing our car under the Warranty.
I got my Punto and Stilo from Forward Autos and they have always been great with me... always happy to help. I would always be happy to recommend them

Nope. Grays in Warwick have always been great. Excellent customer service both before and AFTER sale.

Reply to Fiat Expert - I took my Stilo to Horners in Burnley and they were very helpful, they ordered me some parts, that was last November and I still haven't heard from them, so I take it to Caledonia in Blackburn, they are very helpful friendly.

Surprised about your AHF experience as AHF in Winchester have always treated me fine, with respect and their repairs have always been solid.

The manager there is a nice guy, obviously a businessman but straight down the line.

They did sell me a new Marea with scratches all over it though, and didnt realise I overheard them talking about it in the carpark out the back, but I got it home and waxed it and lo and behold no scratches, so they are not always 100%. I know if I had taken it back having "noticed" the scratches they would have taken it back no questions asked.

However, asking a garage to do anything ( I asked AHF to look out for pristine X1/9s for me ) out of the ordinary, and they even agree to do it, don't expect them to ever bother.

My local dealers (County Motors Carlisle) are also always willing to look at the car and sort out any problems - then charge the earth for it. I WILL NOT be going back [:(!].

Avoid like the plague, THAMES Fiat dealership in west Slough!

Their workmanship, although bad, is thankfully not as bad as their customer relations! There's one guy in the service department, and if you want to speak to him you best read up on the language of "grunt" first![:(!]

lol! I'll tell you a story about Perrys.

Bought my Ulysse off them. On purchase the Climate control was constantly on (ie you could not turn it off). They agreed it would be fixed before delivery.

Upon delivery it was indeed fixed.

This was my first car with Air Con, and to be honest I didn't think much of it but put it down to the size of the car!!

18 months down the line I have a problem with my Air Con. My mechanic calls me and asks me if there was a reason why one of the air con motors was disconnected... when he plugs it in it's constantly on and can't be turned off!! Yep, that's right. Perrys, in stead of fixing it simply disconnected it!! In fairness they did refund the cost when I complained.

Shrewsburys Fiat delaer called inchcape retail.

they are a very large company so maybe it just this one but these guys are plonkers. I could give out name of people who work there that are so stupid they make worms look clever. 3 of them to be exact.

Also what used to be called waddem kenning (now inchcape) of shrewsbury.

These guys are robers, crooks whatever you want to call it they are total losers and if i saw one of them out of work, im sure ill give him a banana.
