I've just noticed that the door you open to get to the petrol cap doesn't lock.................or at least it doesn't on mine. Is this the norm?

Yes, that is normal.

Order a locking fuel cap from your dealership, although you will have to use another key.

This is the only gripe I've got with the Panda. Oh, that and the fact that you can't lock the doors once you are inside!

:yeahthat:, means they unlock when you pull the handle to get out:p, one of Fiat's good ideas:rolleyes:

I don't follow, you see this as a problem? :confused:

If they don't all unlock, it's a pain in the ass to get passengers in when you go kerbcrawling ... I mean picking up .... oh, you know what I mean :D

Does the Panda have double locking (dead lock) remote central locking? If so I wouldn't do the above because you won't get out in an emergency, or with failiure of the system:rolleyes:(y)

I've set my Panda to automatically lock the doors when I drive off!

My mk2 does that automatically aswell. Locks the doors the first time I brake after driving off, and unlocks them when I turn the ignition off:D.

Do the mk3's lock the doors after a cartain speed in reached? and when do they unlock the doors?

It's a bit of a gripe, but anyone who's on the rob for fuel should know better than to tap into a Panda's tank as it only holds about three and a half cupfulls when full!
