Give the dealer a call. If they had your reg on the text it could be a recall for something or other.

Re: Your vehicle is subject to service action - text

Had my 4x4 updated with the new software a couple of days ago. Seems to now be slightly not as economical on the same journeys (-2 mpg on the usual average of 56 mpg) but also appears to vibrate less if you hold a gear too long at low revs (i like to drive with low revs!) and seems smoother somehow. I can't really say if it is lacking any power or anything as it still seems fairly nippy for the engine size.
What I do notice though which now happens in every gear is that the EGR valve sounds like it opens at 2750 RPM in all gears rather than just in the lower gears (I assume it is the EGR causing the sudden louder engine noise at higher revs [maybe this doesn't explain the noise very well!] ) - it is almost like a restriction feeling or something but yet it doesn't seem to reduce the overall acceleration from as it was before the update.
Hmm, maybe a video/sound might explain the difference more than i've managed here?

Other than that, seems fine after the update if not slightly smoother and very slightly less economical.
Thanks TinyTurbo thanked for this post

So much nicer then the new MX5 too, the poor MX5, they went and ruined what was a lovely little roadster. How's the update on the Panda?

No, just the campaign number & it was for the ECU update.

Had two emails today to say it's for the 500 & Panda.

Re: Your vehicle is subject to service action - text

Probably an update to remove the timer Volkswagen say Fiat have on some models which switches off the emission controls after 23 seconds . The EEC test cycle takes 20 secs apparently.

It's probably nothing of the sort, just being cynical mine goes in on Thursday.
