Re: Best Automatic Fiat‽

The problems experienced above with the 9 speed auto and lack of customer service are inexcusible. However bear in mind that the Alfa TCT (or Fiat DCT/DDCT as it's called in Fiat's) is made by Fiat Group, not ZF like the 9 speed auto.

It has proven very free of issues given how many of them they've sold, especially in Alfa Romeo's - it's been on sale over 5 years in the MiTo & Giulietta whereas it's a relatively new addition to Fiat, arriving with the introduction of the 500x in 2015.

In a slight correction to something mentioned previously, it's available in the 500x (1.4 MultiAir Petrol & 1.6 Multijet diesel) & Tipo (1.6 Multijet diesel), but not in the 500L. The 500L still uses the older Dualogic box in the 1.3 Multijet diesel, as does the 500, Panda, Qubo & Doblo.

Very good information there, wasn’t expecting much a reply on this thread considering most petrolheads dont like autos
