Fiat freemont

Hi guys it seam I am the only Scottish person with a freemont 😅
Don't know if that's good or bad but I am happy so far
The only problem so far is the heating system
I get hot out of drivers side and cold out passenger side
I looked under dash and the motor is workin fine and the leaver is moving ok

Re: Fiat freemont

Hi,
You might be the only UK person with one
What trim/engine/transmission?
I assume it's a left hand drive? I had a Dodge Journey (same but VW engine) and really liked it apart from the problems with the used car dealer that ended up in small claims court. I won, but it sort of ruined that car.
Is it single or dual zone heater control?

Re: Fiat freemont

It's just a rebadged Dodge Journey isn't it? Given that 'Muricans can't drive 'stick' I'd expect the auto to be as reliable as any other Dodge auto.

No a Freemont is not a rebadged Journey. The body is the same but the engines and transmissions differ depending on the market. In the US the Journey is mostly V6 petrol with various gearboxes. In the UK most Journeys had a VAG 2.0 TDI (there are 154 petrol Jounery still registered in the UK) and a Getrag DCT auto 'box. These had a dual mass flywheel problem that had a extended warranty, now expired. If you buy one that has not had the revised part expect to spend 2000. Been there see:
https://www.fiatforum.com/garages/41...age-essex.html

In Europe most Freemonts seem to have 2.0 Multijet and a Fiat manual or Ultradrive auto 'box. Obviously depends on spec and year YMMV. In Australia the seem to be motly petrol and 6 speed auto 'box.
I really liked the space, seating options and driving position of the Journey but the garages response ot gerbox issues ruined it. Having lots of flat floor load space OR 7 seats without having to store row of seats somewhere is great. I'd certainly consider a Freemont if they ever sell the RHD version in the UK. Importing one from down under is not really practical or cost effective.

Hi guys I have a fiat freemont LHD I had the vehicle imported from Italy and modified for UK roads, until recently I have not had any issues but a couple of days ago I had a flat battery (due to lockdown not driven it for a week or so) I managed to jump start the vehicle and its running fine, but since the jump start I have a yellow warning light on the dashboard, does anyone know if its related to the initial jump start, cheers everyone

Hi
Ideally you want to get the fault codes read..

But disconnecting the battery for a few hours MIGHT reset things
