Re: woop!

aparently.. they gave the car a proper going over.. and came to the conclusion that jamie broke it because he drives like an over-excited 17yr old boy with a fresh driving licence.. he ballsed the car so now hes gottta pay for the fixage cos they refuse to do it under warrenty.

thought id add that seeing as jamie didnt really explain much in his posts.. probably because he doesnt want you all knowing it's turned out to be his fault the car broke!
Thanks Jamie thanked for this post

Re: woop!

who refused to fix under warranty, fiat or dealer?
i drove my uno flat out from cold every day for 40k and no problems.
get in touch with fiat uk as the gearbox shouldn't have failed in such a short time

Re: woop!

see thats what i think its done about 6k miles and it broke! im sorry but im shur no matter what you do driving wise you shouldent be abel to brake it that soon i meen iv seen the gp as a lerner car nere were i live amagin how much greef that would go through!


i would personly kick up the biggest fuss asking why it broke that soon!

I think he might of just got a duff gear box, there are tones of people on this forum that have new air intakes and alloys and all sorts of stuff and they havent just blown up (tuch wood )

Look after your car and your car will look after you.

My GP treats me better when I look after her. I give her a wash twice a week and a wax or polish once a week. I treat her to new things and in return she performs well and does me proud. Since me and my g/f split my GP has been alot happier as as she gets alot more attention and alot more money spent on her. My ex called my car a slag.

I honestly cannot believe how much more money I have since splitting with my G/F. It's brilliant.

I'm so sad
