Linea Dynamic 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission

I have a car from fiat. It is fiat punto 2011 automatic gear. It is only 60.000 kilometers and its gear doesnt work. I only used this car in city and never used it bad. It is only five years old car. When I went to original fiat car service in Turkey, it gave me 3000 dollars bill and said they sould change aoutomatic gear box robotic. Which kind of brand is this, car price is already 9000 dollars and it gave me 3000 dollars fixing price.I am really shocked. Every brand gives 100.000 kms guarantee but fiat doesnt give. I am really disaapointed and never advise andybody fiat brand from this time and on. I am really angry about this issue and I will apply court for this problem. This problem is chronical problem of fiat punto automatic gear I read it everywhere in turkish fiat forum sites. If you cant do automatic gear dont do it.

We went for a stick shift and had said to the sales woman that the gear box seemed notchy on the test drive, particularly first gear and it would have to be sorted before we bought the car. The sales lady said they would look at it, however, it was most probably because it was new.

By the second day of ownership it was very difficult and sometimes near to impossible to engage first gear. This fault continued and became much worse with the dealer saying they had made adjustments for about 6 months, until they finally replaced the gear box. The second gear box was better, but within a week we reported to the dealer that second gear was faulty and sometimes you could not engage second gear forcing the driver to change from 1st to 3rd, but the dealer has said "you won't get a second gear box, ever", so the dealer made adjustments, which has made no difference.
