Re: Sedici problems?

all I have seen regarding Sedici's is the Cat re-call. other than that I can't recall one coming in for warranty work!

Re: Sedici problems?

my wife has been running a 56plate 1.6 petrol for the last couple of months and apart from a slightly scored near side disc it's great. no reliability problems and very good value second hand.

Re: Sedici problems?

Over 12 months we have had .... rattling dashboard/squeeky front seats/screaching brake. All solved under warranty. A few niggles but overall a brilliant car for the money. I prefer driving this to my stilo just because of the height and it feels great to drive, especially in town and on country roads (but it does not do 0 to 60 in 8 seconds ). Oh, and if you do a lot of motorway driving do not get the 1.6 petrol as it does get a bit raucous over 70mph.

But it is a very noticeable car, stands out in the crowd, and I always love getting the funny looks from the sx4 owners who don't understand the fiat badge. Don't believe the car is thirsty, but don't have figures.

We have a little nipper and she loves it too.

I would very much recommend the sedici.

Angry Re: Sedici problems?

We bought our 1.9 Diesel Sedici brand new last September 2007, in November 2007 while we were driving home from work the gear linkage cable broke, the car would not go into gear, had to call the AA waited nearly an hour, very dangerous situation when your driving along and all of a sudden your car wont go into gear. Sent the car back to the garage got it fixed, last Friday 24/10/08 driving too work the exact same problem happens again, the gear linkage cable breaks and the car wont go into gear.

Just after gettin it repaired now. Dont really want this car anymore! I really like it, but I just cant trust it!

Re: Sedici problems?

Hi,

bought my Sedici 1.9 JTD in April 2008. Problems so far:

- rattling noise in the console (started on day 2 - 3 visits at the dealer could NOT solve the problem)
- rattling noise (side windows)
- almost impossible to shift into 2nd gear on cold temperatures (known problem for a specific series of sedici 1.9, solved on warranty)
- creaking noise when steering (esp. during low speed) - this is the latest problem (20.000 km) and will be fixed during the next 4 weeks (the complete steering must be replaced).

A few good things about the car:
Fuel consumption is between 6.5 and 7 liters/100 km which I think is OK and 4WD is superior in winter...

Regards,

Marcello

Re: Sedici problems?

get a suzuki one they are about £30; I ordered 4 from local suzuki dealer so that I could fit M&S tyres; they then called back to say that a customer had just bought a new SX4 and wanted alloys and did i want 4 wheels @ £20 each! Yes Please.
I did consider getting 15" wheels and higher profile tyres for a better ride but there was doubt over whether they would clear the calipers.
I get 36.6 mpg from my petrol 1.6 (08 reg bought Jan 2010 for £7500 "new" with 10 miles on clock from Fiat Direct)
Engine is a bit gutless for a 1.6 DOHC and I suspect is "detuned" but may improve when run-in; would have preferred a JTD but put off by price and reports of gearbox problems; the petrol is chain-cam so no cambelt to snap/replace.....
see my other posts re sedici

Re: Sedici problems?

Need help;
I posted on here befor about what thought was noise from the brakes but took a friend for a spin and he reckons its coming from transmission as it comes and goes depending if the switch is in auto or 2wd the cars only done 18000 miles could if be the tranmission oil also I have had to top the brake fluid up twice but can find no leaks anywhere.
