Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

My tipo is 2016 1.6jtd2 with 120hp.First i must say,i drove my tipo normally mostly on highway,and now i noticed that the clutch is slipping in fifth and sixth gear.Anybody had similar problems? The authorized dealer in my country said that the warranty does not cover this problem...need advice

You got at least 2 year warranty, that's including the clutch, no question.
Send an email to the importer in your country, and explain the problem.

Re: Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

It depends why it's slipping.

If the plates are worn then the warranty doesn't cover it... but the plates shouldn't be worn if you drive it mostly on highways and don't hold the clutch in whilst you are waiting at traffic lights etc.

If there's a contamination problem (oil on the plates) then it has to be coming from the crankshaft oil seal or the clutch hydraulic system (I don't know if the 1.6D has a concentric clutch cylinder). If these are leaking then the warranty should cover them.

I drive mostly on highways and i do not have a habit of holding the clutch on traffic lights,so well will see.Because of the Christmas holidays I'll be waiting two weeks to get the clutch parts delivered from the factory.

Problem solved at the official FIAT service,the complete clutch kit change, including the flywheel which was causing the problems as i was told. Everything was done under warranty.
