Faults to date

1.3 Multijet Dynamic, 5 door.

1 Fuel pump, excessive noise - now fixed.
2 Both rear doors difficult to open from outside - now fixed.
3 Small paint chip on tailgate - paint ordered - ongoing.
4 Excessive noise from suspension/steering - under investigation - ongoing.
5 Drivers seat height adjustment fails to hold - dealer notified - ongoing.

Apart from that it's going ok!,.....1900 miles up, and the engine is loosening up.

Number 5 is probably not a fault> Read here

With me it also don't hold but it's because of the problem described in that topic.

not bad for a new car. nothing major.
i once bought a brand new daewoo lanos, lets just say daewoo offer 5 years warranty because they wouldnt sell their cars without it. everything broke twice, although to be fair i abused the car daily.

Re: Faults to date

faults on my active sport 1.4 8v

1- wouldnt go into reverse- so they adjusted stuff and fixed it
2- a loud rattle and banging - fixed (me exhaust was hanging off)
3- another rattle - turned out to be the passenger side front suspension (fixed by me hitting a speed bump at 35 cos i wasnt watching where i was going and nearly killing my self)

part from that its all good

Dealer said that the technician shortened the cables linking the rear outside handles to the latching mechanism, works correctly now.

Re: Faults to date

1.Door Mirror loose- Fixed by tightening the bolts
2.Clunking noise from front wheels-Informing them 2moro
3.1st and 2nd gear hard to engage-as above
4.Passenger door wont open from inside-looked at couldnt find a problem
5.Funny squealing noise when air cons on-Informing them 2moro
6.No light in boot, lens but no bulb-as above
7.Seat belt warning stays on even when belts are on-as above

Thats it so far, only 900 miles in though, damn sure there will be more after the experience i had before with them.

Me too, it's looking like 6 months of Grande Punto ownership is not the kind of motoring experience i want.

Re: Faults to date

5 door 1.3 multijet 90 in crossover black

only one prob and that was the "software glitch" the first day I had the car

Done about 2,000 miles now and no other problems brings back 50 plus MPG most of the time, though using the aircon does seem to effect that quite a bit especially as it hot at the moment last tank full only got 48 mpg

One general question If you use the key to open the door on the pasesnger side should it open all the doors? if it should then I do have a fault
