Re: fiat scudo warranty

Where did you purchase the van?

Consumer rights would have something to say about the vehicle not being fit for purpose.

Give them a call. Explain the situation and they might speak to the garage concerned and put the 'lean' on them.

Re: fiat scudo warranty

My mechanic also tells me i have a leaking turbo and i also need two cv gaiters.Aswell as two other faults i have which come up on the onboard computer.I went back to the garage and what i asked was, is my turbo intercooler covered as oil was leaking out of it. the reply was no as it was considered a mechanical moving part.I replyed i would contact trading standards, they replyed it is over the three month warranty.

Re: fiat scudo warranty

leaking turbo Is there a lack of power, is it noisy? if not leave it.

CV boots are unusual on these models

Re: fiat scudo warranty

i dont think its been causing any problems, the mechanic stated that there is a blackening around the turbo indicating the turbo is leaking.On a final note the engine has run without any problems,i havnt witnessed any power loss.tThe noise i had was from the dual bias fly wheel which is on order from fiat as we speak.

Re: fiat scudo warranty

Their claim of '3 months warranty' is null and void.

Check with Consumer Rights - drop them an email explaining the situation; they will get back to you within a day with good advice.

Re: fiat scudo warranty

You are not the only person to have problems with Fiat.My 08 registered Scudo was 1 month out of its 2 year warranty when the exhaust valve went-caused 700 of damage-Fiat didn't want to know,last week the turbo went,the van only has 30,000 miles.Other faults include exhaust manifold heat shield fell to bits due to vibration,constant knocking noise from the front end.Personally I think Fiat have an issue with component quality.

to be fair is peugeot.

Alot of taxi drivers chuck the heatshields away because they just break again and again. A heat resisting washer (rubber compound) would solve the problem
