*IMPORTANT* Recall
« on: October 01, 2014, 01:56:40 pm »
I've just had notification of a safety recall for the Abarth 500.

Wires may rub on steering column.

Visit your dealer at the earliest opportunity :thumb:

    I got one too, just says a number or right hand drive cars are affected, only a 20 minute job so I hope they can do it while I wait. I read something on here about it a few weeks ago.

    Please do not visit your dealer unless you get a letter. It is chassis specific and all people effected will be notified.

    Cheers John. I haven't got one yet. You could have possibly saved me a trip.

    You could email abarth uk if you concerned about this recall, but like john501 said only effected on specific chassis. And yes I have a recall notification letter as well my is 2013 plate.

    Abarth pull the data from DVLA so as long as the car is in your name they will know.

    Regarding KK_96 question, if your car is affected and you bought it second hand, assuming you properly completed the DVLA paperwork, Abarth will pick up your details and address etc from the DVLA database.  I bought mine second hand and got my letter today.

     After my earlier post I contacted the dealer hoping they would do it while I waited but they want me to leave it with them for the day!, recall says it's a 20 min job and someone said it is a cable tie required so I may have a look and do it myself or try another dealer, this would be my fourth visit in the last couple of months and could do without the trip really.

    Don't do it yourself, it could invalidate your insurance.

    Never thought about that, thanks john, looks like a trip to the dealer.
