    Thankfully indeed the Pope took a back seat literally on the social media.

    pope opting for modest fiat in front of those big armored cars has the world go in awe of him.

    His choice to stick to an understated classic in a country where big cars rule the road and in a city that favours idling Suburban SUVs seemed to be giving Francis’s first meaningful message to his Americans. "Save the environment and live a humble life".

    lets see how much additional sales it bring for fiat in u.s especially when VW has cheated US public.

    Diesel engines make up only a minuscule percentage of the overall car market in the US. VW will have more problems in EU as the sales figures of diesels are high.

    We have to wait and watch whether VW is alone in this as EPA is extending the probe to other US Brands.

    The Fiat 500L the Pope Francis the Argentinian used, has just been sold at a charity auction for....$80000!

    As for the 500L: it is heading for sales oblivion, being a most un-american-type vehicle, that too in the age of cheaper-than-bottled-water gasoline in the usa. The Fiat 500X is not the hit its sibling the Jeep Renegade is, either, indeed its sales are already dipping fast.

    Launching the FIAT brand in the USA and also in China with us-dodge based models (Viaggio and Ottimo) has proven a bad, albeit financially not exorbitant, mistake by Marchionne et al.

    That was probably done more to brand the unfamiliar-to-americans FIAT corporation than the cars themselves.

    The 124 Spider comes to the usa soon, as do the Alfa-s to many Fiat dealers, so things will indeed improve but it's been a drag on FCA's otherwise incredibly stellar sales, marketshare, brand-equity mindspace and, by now, terrifically improving financial performance.
