[8D]i've had my cinq sporting for about a year now, only bought it to advertise my business (window tinting) but i've had so much fun driving it,anyway i agree fiat parts dep let us down bad! i have to use arnold clark in kirkcaldy,very slow,not much knowledge! i needed a speedo cable,they asked which one i needed 1 or 2 piece,the one i removed was a 1 piece so i ordered a 1 piece! turns out previous owner had used another fiat cable (maybe punto/brava?) so i really needed a 2 piece,they wouldn't exchange my 1 piece for a two (and the cable was still sealed in the bag!) had to go to local breakers as it was a saturday afternoon and the car had to be fixed! so i still have a 1 piece lying doin nothing! so much for customer relations! ps i'm new here so hi to everyone!!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Welcome to the forum fella.

That's appalling service from Fiat - if they were unsure they should have taken your number for spares from the vin plate and found the correct one from their cd's.[:(!]

Message to Boywonder, did you ever send off any posts to the guys at FIAT then? What sort of response did you get? How about an update? How about posting their address for us all to write to them?

I agree, never take your car to Fiat to be fixed and if you want parts look them up on the parts CD yourself and just give them the numbers.

*hahhahahaha*
Sorry I'm laughing already just from the thought so I have to share this with you folks :D
I used to have Punto 55 which I had tuned into a Sporting look-a-like especially the dials where from Sporting.
Anyhow I had some problems with my Punto and took it to Delta-Auto which is the biggest/main Fiat dealership in Finland.
Since the 55 and Sporting dials differ so that in 55 you only have the orange light letting you know that the motor is getting too hot and in Sporting there is a ** (<-- dunno the word but look at the pic below) which I had made out of a match. So the repair guy is looking and looking at the dials and then he gets a heureka and says why isn't that *** (<-- still dunno the word) moving eventhough the machines are showing the the motor is overheating !?
I took and deep breath and said to him if it was I'd be very worried since it's only a match !!! You'd think they'd be the ones to know what a 55 has and doesn't have !



PS. The sad thing is that this is where the trouble started and about 3 months later the engine blew up thanks to Delta-Auto's mess-up [V] *long story*

I have another good story about how they used to test me since I was a woman..but I'll save it for later.

Are you shure ?
Well okey...
The oil signal light was on all the time eventhough there was enough oil etc and I knew it was just because the detector was broken but I hadn't bothered to change it.
So I went to Delta-Auto again about some other thing and like always they sent me to the cafeteria to wait and so I did.
When I came back about hour later the mechanic took a wise-ass attitude and asked if I knew that oils needed refilling.
I told him it was just the detector that was broken and that he need not bother about it.
He replied "Oh yeah, I noticed the detector was broken and yeah the oils are just fine".
What is that !? [:(!]

Judging from all of the bad experiences we've had from the FIAT dealerships, from salesmen to greasemonkeys do you think it's a pre-requisite in the Fiat application form for employment.

It must say "essential to this post is that you are completely brain dead, thick, unskilled rude and couldn't give a toss about our customers"


Are we in agreement? [}:)][}:)][}:)]
