I have just bought a Sporting 1.9D Multijet. It has had various rattles and noises.
The dealer has had the car back twice and it still squeals from the rear brakes. When we collected the car it was very dirty inside and a cover had been superglued on under the seat. When we got home, we opened the bonnet and the bonnet stay fell off in my hand.
The heater motor squeaked on the slowest speed, and the radio doesn't fit properly, either - we were told they are all like this.
The biggest problem is the noise from the engine, a mechanical whirring noise which only happens at low speed in second gear when the engine is warm. The dealer tells me this is normal and all 1.9D engines make this noise. I don't find this noise very confidence inspiring and would recommend you do a thorough test drive before ordering one.
Considering how many miles Fiat claim to have done testing this car before launch, I would have expected the car to be faultless, especially the top-of-the-range model. Our last car was German and I regret not buying German again.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
