I suspect that FIATCare are busy suggesting the owners contact a dealer to resolve any issues as they usually do. I have yet to see anything really helpful come from an postings here by FIATCare. Also, providing that sort of information would require that they admit there is an issue, no?It would be nice at this point for "FiatCare" to step in and tell us all when in 2018 and what chassis numbers are effected so that those of us with 18 plates can buy in our spares now..........How about it FIAT ?
I’d bet you a brew of your choice the thermostat wasn’t defective.
I’d bet you a craft brew of your choice that there was nothing wrong with the thermostat. I went around that bush with the local monkeys who think they’re a service department . I still have the original part.I have an '18 and they replaced mine when they did the thermostat.
Now's the time to ask to see the guts! Only problem is I keep disturbing my original placements but as long as its me moving stuff its ok.Pikeman + Calehedron, thank you so much for posting that! I'm coming up on my 4 years, and with the warranty running out in July, I've been contemplating whether to bring my car in because of the sporadic whiff of antifreeze. It's never been to the dealer, I've done my own oil changes, and since I haven't needed to add antifreeze yet, I may just take my chances that I don't actually have a defective water pump (and it's a 2017; not a 2018).
