Fiat 500L Fustrations

I got my fiat500l in late Aug 2013 and the check engine light started going on in late Sept less than 2000km by mid Oct I had already taken to dealer 6 times.
In late Oct the transmission light came up and again I took it in. They told me it needed a part related to transmission ONLY PROBLEM IS THEY CAN'T GET THE PART. MY has been at the dealer since Oct 26. The dealer has had it longer than I have. They are telling me Dec 27 is when it will be ready?

called corporate nothing! dealer says nothing!

i'm going nuts!

Re: Fiat 500L Fustrations

Do you guys have a "Lemon" law?
I'd want my money back and like now!

I've had the transmission message come up and can make it happen just about on demand. Taking it on a rather long trip and the service manager states that they got bulletins from Fiat indicating that its a temp sensor...that the car can still be driven...

Find out if you can pick it up and drive it until they get their act together, or give you your $$$$ back.

Re: Fiat 500L Fustrations

I'm having the same problem in Saskatoon Canada...It started with the engine light coming on soon after getting the car. They tell me it is a computer chip issue..Last week it was really cold here but my car is in a garage at night and plugged in at work during the day. I let it warm up for 10 minutes before driving and then put it in reverse and backed up. The car would not shift into drive for an hour. I've had transmission lights and engine lights on constantly. Mine is in the shop now to until they figure out the problem. Starting to think this car was the wrong choice for Canadian winters.

Re: Fiat 500L Fustrations

JustinFiat, I thought you were writing my issues for me when I read your post. I picked up my 500L the Thursday before Labour day and starting having issues with the tranny/check engine light in the first 5000 Km. The dealer found nothing when I brought the car in for an oil change and asked they look into the issue. The light of course was out when it was at the dealer.
As the weather became colder, (Ottawa), the tranny issues increased and it was more difficult to put the car in gear. One time the dash reported "that gear is not available" and stalled as I was attempting to put the gear into D after backing out of my driveway.?!
Anyways, they told me it is the Transmission modular, back in November, and I am bringing it in tomorrow, Jan3, 2014. Let's hope that fixes the problem.

Have they supplied you with a loan car?
