Hi,
This is for Kez 1000 fire ! I have a 2008 fiat 500 lounge with a broken exterior drivers side door handle !!! I thought I was the only one to have had any problems !!!!! so glad to hear someone else is having the same trouble !!.....also have a broken boot sensor, my jets have stopped on the rear windscreen wipers and it failed two MOT's !!! I wander if I've had a FRIDAY AFTERNOON CAR ? Love to hear back ! ......p.s. I still love my car !!

Re: Fiat 500 Door handle broken

Hi Meezie and welcome to the forum .

Sorry to hear of your troubles - all of the things you mention are known weak spots on the 500.

Out of interest, what were the two MOT failures for?

I have just had the same experience, my driver's door handle has just broken at the front leading end.
