Sad to hear this m8  :'(

I do know how you feel as i had similar long running battles with Alfa in the past  >:(

Which is why i didn't get another Alfa and got the 500 instead  ;)

Dont lose hope, keep phoning and writing emails/letters if you dont relent they will have to
reach a solution with you :thumb:

Good luck

    seeing peeps with so many issues with their APE's is seriously making me doubt getting one ... i would be interested in the ratio of peeps with probs to peeps with none .... i have had brand new cars with probs in the past ... renaults ... and as I will be using my car for business purposes, can't afford to have it in fiat being fixed more often than not ... even if I do have a courtesy car in the meantime ... the point, for me, of getting a new car, is to have trouble free motoring for a few years :/

    Every car is going to have niggles of some sort and that's all they are.
    There's by far more happy APE owners than unhappy ones.

    I'm a person not a peep  :-*, and my APE is now on nearly 5000 miles and seven months without any issues.

    Text speak is not acceptable as detailed in the acceptable usage policy.  Continual use of it will be removed.

    It seems a 50/50 chance that you'll get a reliable car or not. Mine has been pretty poor reliability wise, others have had no issues at all, luck of the draw sometimes  :P

    I've done 3000 in mine, problems so far are an occasional buzz/vibration from rear offside, 2 peeling decal sections, and me noticing the bodykit os a pretty bad fit - is anyone elses not great? i.e. where the bumper meets wing area of the front wheel arch, the curve of the arch doesn't line up properly.

    In the door shut the sticker near the door catch says "1.4 T-Jet", does every Abarth say that? I thought it would say "1.4 multiair"!

    It also has some hesitation when cold on light throttle, slightly better in sport mode but still annoying.

    Apart from these... I love it!!

    A simple operation on your foot, allowing you to exert more pressure, will solve this problem... ;D
