The Ugly Side: Common Fiat Car Problems Encountered
The retro styling plus the short chassis is a great combo that made Fiat vehicles popular among city drivers. Just like any other car, Fiat is not immune to car troubles. Here are the most common faults discovered by Fiat car owners:
There have been reported problems about presence of oil in the car’s engine. It could also mean that other parts already failed, to begin with. Aside from contaminating the engine, there are also complaints about oil leaking into the coolant system.
A widely-reported issue about some Fiat models is about the diesel head gasket failure. In fact, dealers were required to have the diesel head gasket replaced in 2008.
A detailed inspection is essential if the purchase was made before this date.
There was also a recall for the Fiat 500 with regards to a faulty wiring under the steering column.
It was found out that the wiring was prone to premature wear and can be potentially a reason for an electrical failure while driving.
Also a known issue among Fiat cars is a sticky or tight steering motion which could be a problem with the power steering motor.
