Re: Punto Evo - Check List

My Punto Evo is with the dealer today it has 2 faults Ventilation fran squeaks on 1st speed , they are going to put a new motor in. 2nd fault i have a squeak coming from the rear of the car, i drove an engineer around in the back of the car trying to find it he thinks it is coming from inside the rear headlining. My car has a complete glass roof so hopefully they will find the noise. I had the problem with the cubby hole down by your knee. Took it back watched the enginner try to fix it but by the time i had got home it had broke again. Took the panel off put two screws in the hinges now the jobs a good one.

Just to clarify xSianx, was your aircon completely missing or did it turn out to be just the button that was missing like with some peoples fog lights?

Re: Punto Evo - Check List

Well my car is coming up for the 1 year old mark now and unfortunately one of my side rubbing strips has just had to be replaced (thankfully under warranty).
I guess Fiats crappy glue strikes again!

Re: Punto Evo - Check List

I have got

Crackling noise/ miss fire on cold start

bouts of missfire when warm

fuel smell in cabin

smoke from exhaust (unburnt diesel)


Fuel MPG 42mpg (from 1.3 mjet over 8000 miles)

Rear lamps full of water

centre pocket knackered

writing rubbing off side rubbing strips

dents on tailgate(from dealer and AA pushing it)

Fiat wont help , fianance company FGA wont help even after they
sent an independent engineer who confirmed the above.

If you dont want 6 months of hell Dont buy a FIAT!!!!

Now following up ombudsman trading standards are involved and may have to go to Court to resolve this and all for £15000 6 month old car.

Re: Punto Evo - Check List

Just thought I’d let everyone else know s they can check their Evos, I have come across a slight issues with my mine.
I noticed that the rubber that runs vertically down the side of the rear quarter window (I have the 3 door) catches at the top of the door as you open and close the door, causing a tear on the drivers side and slight wear on the passenger side.
I reported this to the dealership who said that the rubbers would be replaced under warranty, I later got a phone call from the dealership saying that the rubbers are part of the windows therefore they are now replacing both rear quarter windows under warranty.
Firstly I have to give credit where credits due and say that for once my local dealership have been very good in dealing with the situation.
What I find ridicules is the design which means the whole window needs replacing simply because of the rubber seal… crazy!

Unhappy Re: Punto Evo - Check List

Got my brand new Fiat Punto evo GP 3dr 1.4 multiair at the end of March. It is now 7 weeks old.

After washing the car for the first time when it was 5 weeks old I noticed that the passenger side rubbing strip was coming off. Took back to the dealer who were very helpfull. They have ordered new side rubbing strips for both sides of the car. Even though the drivers side wasn't coming off.

I have just returned from a long weekend in France in which I travelled about 800 miles on the motorway. My drivers side rubbing strip has now started to come off and the passenger one I had to take off because it came off so far it was flapping around and I was frightened it could come off causing an accident or injury to someone.

Now I have no protection on the passenger side door which is really annoying. If I get a dink in the door now I am gonna hold Fiat completely responsible because afterall isn't that why I paid the extra £85 to have them fitted.

Re: Punto Evo - Check List

Just thought I would let people know that I have now had the new side rubbing strips fitted. hopefully they will stay on now. The only slight issue I have with them is that they are now a slightly different shade of grey to the car. Guessing that is because the body shop didn't mix the paint 100% correct. Thanks Fiat that's just brilliant.
