Not the greatest article ever, the demo with strong man was particularly pathetic. As for it being dangerous, thats what the warning light is for.

I suspect the problem is no worse than with other manufacturers but fiat haven't handled it very well. I think some brands would have offered a substantial goodwill gesture.

because it mainly concerns GP's (the subject of the story in the programme) thus the thread was made in this section.

well it all started with the mk2 punto which went into production in 1999 i believe

i think it was the first to have electrical power steering

As for the strongest man to drive it - he's shuffeling like a learner

Mines failed, just drive normally, the steering isn't THAT heavy.... just abit of a shock when it does fail.....

ive found early 2003 threads, ff wasn't invented till 2002. but we didn't used to hear about a lot of stuff until the cars were 3 years old and out of warranty. people never used to sign up just to chat from new much in the old days like they do now.
