Re: Anybody had any problems with 4gear on a grande punto??

i took it into a fiat garage and i asked them if its a common fault and they said no but the steering rack is. Considering the low milage i approached fiat for good will or atleast to pay a percentage and got refused, because my warrenty only covers 500 well thats not even going to cover half lol. So pissed off after spending 6grand on the car + the hugeee bill i am going to get!
