Here's one from yet another disatisfied fiat 500 owner



What would you do if you were Ewan or his mate?
Theres little or no discount available on a 500 and you go to Leeds from Glasgow to buy one?, you need your bumps feeling.

Re: Another distisfied owner of the new 500:

as always with fiat, the dealers let the cars down. touch wood our panda and seicento have been very reliable so we never had to slug it out with the dealers in that way - but for servicing over the 1st three years they were always crap.

sadly it really is almost enough to put you off what are now very very good, reliable, keenly priced cars

Go on a UK VW forum and you'll see most people don't rate VW dealer service either.

What makes it even worse is they then went to the dealer in Glasgow, a friend apparently, who told them to eff off, and they were surprised by that.

The Glasgow dealer was denied any profit and they expect him to be sympathetic.

Wake up and smell the coffee!!

Cheers
