Fiat Bravo user guide / buyers guide

Currently I'm compiling a user guide (like an FAQ only hopefully more comprehensive) for the Bravo, Brava, Marea etc. It will be linked from the other forum and hopefully this one and will be part of me website.

Apart from the usual niggles we've come to know about with Bravos, Bravas etc, is there any of the more unusual niggles / problems with their cars (along with the solution to that problem) that they'd like to submit. If so, please e-mail me at prenowden677@hotmail.com or paul@fiatbravo.org.uk

thanks,
Paul

Where do you want me to start with HGT issues? I have Injection, Throttle, ECU, Vibration, Economy, Depreciation, Air Bag, Understear, Tyre Wear, Interior Scratching, Sensitive ABS, Brake Pad Disintegration, Brake Pull, Expensive Servicing, Washer Failure and an impossible to clean front end! All in 12 months from new.

On my 1.4sx, the bonnet is difficult to open and thats it after 3 years!

It will be interesting to read and then possible contribute anything that I have had that isn't on there. Top idea though, Paul.

Cheers

Nige

The washer failiure (take it you mean the infamous rear wash-wipe-when-it-feels-like-it system) hose thingy is already noted, as is the economy and interior scratches have already been noted and included in the report. So when it's up and running (it will be something that's constantly added to) start where you like on the HGT issues! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I'm also adding a "Rate or slate" your dealer section. It applies to ANY Fiat dealer, ANY sales place (including supermarkets such as TRADE SALES), and any specialist. This will be based on reader submissions to view people's satisfaction with treatment by dealers, service, sales, aftercare and whether any of the staff give a toss.

regards,
Paul

Re: Fiat Bravo user guide / buyers guide

download the same manuals used by fiat dealers here:
http://babarmalik.com/ledmods.htm
(with thanks to babar malik)

the first 2 are for mk1 models, the second 2 are for mk2. they're all pdf's. not the easiest things to navigate around, but they're stuffed full of useful info.
