Warranty issues

Fiat Trofero, just had first MOT and 2 advisory's

1 Front offside top mount has play - assume bushes.

2 Monza stainless steel exhaust has slight blow, on weld where one tail pipe comes out of rear box?

Still have a few days of fiat warranty to go. I am wasting my time trying to get changed under warranty or are they just gonna say its wear and tear and not covered? Car has done 9000 miles. Your views appreciated.

Re: Warranty issues

Claim. They can only say no.

Exhaust may not be covered in year 3 but it looks like a manufacturing defect so a decent repair seems in order.

Year 3 does not cover everything so you need to read the warranty conditions they are reasonably clear.

Re: Warranty issues

All sorted with warranty, both top front mounts replaced and exhaust rear box.

Price on invoice, just under 2500, been a shock if had to pay

Re: Warranty issues

Glad you got it sorted under warranty.

But 2500 for a couple of top mounts and a backbox .

Wtf
I can't believe that
Even if it took 8 hours work that would still be over 1000 in parts
If that's all that was done

Re: Warranty issues

Yes, i had to look a few times and to be honest i did exagerate, it was 2478. Now done about 20 miles and TPM light on saying all 4 tyres pressure low, which they aren't so wonder what got knocked or its a weird coincidence

Check pressure and reset the system

Re: Warranty issues

All pressures good. Tried reset and still showing all tyres low. Think a call to garage again
