The leak is coming in on the hinges so says the service dept manager, water running in side bootlid and dwn the back screen. Parcel shelf wet this morning. and water in the channel on the boot lip.

Lets hope the weather improves over the next week or so!!

Re: My boot leaks

Well the Dealer Principal called me today and has said that i should not have been given my car back with out a fix. Have to drop it in tomorrow night on the way home. He has spoken to the bodyshop who are fully aware of the place where the water is getting in. They are sure they will fix it first time. We will see.

I will keep you all posted once the fix is complete and once we have our first rains after!! fingers crossed, but i dont think i will hold my breath on this one!!

Nothing wrong with the Panda matey. Had mine for 3 years now and not a single problem with it.

Feel your pain though, I had a Ford Puma once and the boot on that used to fill up with water when i opened it, i used to keep a couple of plastic ducks in there, they had a great time. Hope you get it sorted.

Re: My boot leaks

i am having the same problem with water in the boot lid, although my rear screen and boot floor is dry.

will be going back to the dealer with a growing list of faults:

boot lid not perfectly alligned so "catches" when opening.
start stop only stops the engine for 1 second if anything electrical is turned on.
engine randomly turned off twice so far
very tappety when hot
1st gear very hard to engage when car is moving at any speed, even at crawl i have to wrench it in.
and now boot lid fills with water.

Re: My boot leaks

1st gear has no syncro (like reverse), should only go in first when stopped.

Stop/start, indicates to me a low charge battery (loads short journeys?)

Is he personally paying for a courtesy car out of his budget then? What IF there isn't a fix? Have you spoke with the DET yet?

You still got courtesy car? If not i'd hire one & bill the dealer who can fight it out with Fiat if they want.

Honestly I know things like this happen but when you pay this amount of money for a car its f*cking shocking! If it was my car i'd be pressing...no demanding a full refund and going elsewhere.

Re: My boot leaks

Yes I still have one of their demos. I will await the call from the head of sales in the morning.they did try to white seal the seams but obviously not worked. Was told that 4ist allowed 1.5 hours to fix under warranty. But water was still running down the inside of the rear screen and put of the grommets.

Re: My boot leaks

At least they are trying which is good but IMO its the way they go about it that frustrates me, there is a procedure.
