Something serious wrong there looks like the pressure is building then something gives way.
If my car did that every time I drove it I would be getting it sorted and I wouldn't drive it incase of overheating and causing more damage.
That is not right and should be sorted out under warranty the engine bay is a mess and looks like it has also burnt into the fabric lining the bonnet.

Must cost a fortune in topping up.

I've not seen an AGP engine bay look like that before.

    Not right.

    But hoses aren't on 3rd year warranty.

    Got to say though it's the fact they said it was normal that was the concern they should say they can see the problem but it's not covered under 3rd year warranty etc as it is a hose and then ask do you want us to repair it? then give a price.

    I'm sure any of the blokes on here who work for dealerships would do just that it just worries me that a main Abarth dealership can say that is normal then say they would charge to take a look at it.

    Sorry to say this does sounds similar to my dealings with their service department  :'(

    Ive also tried the Stafford branch for minor warranty stuff and they were fine.

    Not sure where your based but also consider Research Nuneaton they sorted some of my niggles without any fuss  ;)

    I'm based in stoke on Trent and work in Trentham,

    When the guy told me the 1st time it went for service, I took it down and showed him, I us to go every week and he said that was normal, so I said if that is p*ssing my coolant out when I run out my engine will over heat and the pistons and bores will be f**ked, then how does it go,

    The answer i got was "well wait till then!"

    I was so close to putting him on he's ass  :wave:
