Re: Help! My car is leaking!

I have learned a expensive lesson,

1, never buy a new model car wait at least 2 years.

2, visit car models forums before buying to see if any problems reported.
3, When buying car if you get any bad feeling about dealer RUN

4, If you are told many times not to touch a motor company with a barge pole then there must be some truth in it.(no smoke without fire)

I know they are boring cars but maybe a good idea to buy honda or toyota as they seem to have a good rep, you pay more when buying but might be worth it in the long run.
Never thought i would be saying that

Re: Help! My car is leaking!

Yes im still leaking T.

Along with power loss at 2 1/2 thousand revs in second gear while cold.

Strong burning smell when starting the engine from cold.

Squeaking / creaking doors while going over uneven road.

Leaking boot.

Glove box still out of alignment.

Black plastic trim to underside of car peeling off. Have just noticed that the grime that I thought was responsible for said peeling turns out to be damage where the Fiat factory workers decided to conceal with said plastic.


Apart from that im just peachy.

Re: Help! My car is leaking!

Ahhh you see they doooo!


The boot is actually a plant bootique. Plant seeds are imbedded into the lining of the boot and over time with just the right amount of water, (supplied from the automatic fiat automotive plant watering system) a full bloom of Italy's finest blooms will be flourishing in your very own in car eco-system.

MAGIC!

Best of all the water is supplied from recycled rain water filtered though dozens of built in filters located inside the inner of your boot door, code named F.I.A.T or its full name Filter In A Trunk. Should there be a dry spell, the boot door will "Retain" said water and distribute from one of the handy rubber hoses located on either end of the boot door!

I for one applaud Fiat for there pioneering Eco project!!!!!!
