Re: Software update...excess radiation

I'm also sure they are duty bound to fix it under the sale of goods act 1984, if some thing is not of merchantable quality or not fit for the purpose for which you bought it,ie it's faulty,they can either give you a full refund or fix it to your satisfaction. your contract is with the garage you bought it from.
Thanks vagosofron thanked for this post

Is there a software update for the 1.3 Diesel and how much could I expect the dealer to charge me for it?

See post #14. We've already said this may be the case (some ECU's can't be updated and need replacing with one that already has the update).

If Fiat are covering the costs, it shouldn't be a problem.
