As far as i Have observed major issues with Fiat were two. 1.CSC damage 2.Brake related issues. Sure both of the above issue can end up the car stuck in middle of road. Both these are related to manufacturer compromising in quality (and we know reasons). and I believe they are very well addressed as of now.(and yeah,the infamous rusting issue in few models.) Did we hear any other serious concerns with Fiat.I think "NO". (correct me if I am wrong) I agree ASS is incompetent at certain regions.well that goes true with every other brand too.You can go through other forums and reviews in internet which will reveal how safe we are at times. But here we have a good option just to tackle present odd scenario and i.e, e-mail to top officials and for the 95 percent cases they have successfully sorted it out.(TFI has the proof.) I hope you would not say TFI is biased..no chance.!!!
