I agree with Sandys comment I have owned both cars there is no noticeable difference in Quality
Same here. We own both and they have been excellent.

    Oh they're gonna love that!!

    Do you know how long it's going to take for them to actually fix them?  Be surprised if it's before September :-(

    Sad day today I handed the panda back but got mine back lol

    They not even looked at time as my list is too long so booked it in for a week with them to try and sort everything. They say so can order parts if needed aswell so hopefully in 3 weeks everything will be sorted :)

    Haven't they even bothered to check through the list so they can have parts ready on site when you bring it in next? ???

    They don't work that way I'm afraid :(

    They'll look at it quickly on the first day, decide what they'll replace and what they won't and then wait till the last day for parts to arrive.. If you're really lucky they won't have done everything and will have to re-book it a few weeks later!

    My AGP has so far had a new turbo and ECU, thats taken pretty much 5 months to get...

    Now they need to look at it again, I've requested Abarth to swap the all the sensors and the boost pipes next....

    as well as 'normal fixes that its booked into have

    issue of door rattles (again...)
    sky dome rattles,
    back seats rattle (again...),
    side skirts coming away from the bodywork (again!) replaced once already,
    Offside rear window rubber has started to split (again) replaced once already,
    front window air vent 'strip' in the dash has started to lift (again, been replaced 3 times already),
    Brakes squealing - Abarth UK have spoke to Abarth Italy, awaiting a fix in the next 2-3 months!
    Glovebox has to be slammed to get it to close - fixed once already...

    oh I do love my Abarth :-(... can't wait to get rid now.... Letters have been written to reject the car, I just need to post them now.

    I seriously just couldn't recommend anyone to go near a fiat/Abarth if they ever asked.
