    Got alignment checked in Lal bros, Chennai

    Left rear tyre outer edges got weared out more than usual.
    And the report shows the same.
    Rear Toe left shows 3.7mm (0-1.2 is normal)

    I was advised to fix this FIAT asp.
    I would like to know what would be the technical problem behind this.

    Anyone faced this issue?

    Take it to FASC . They would add some shims and correct it. Do it asap or you will lose your tyre.

    Also, ask them to check the rear "dead axle" / torsion beam. FIAT even recalled some 2011 cars to replace them. The symptoms were similar - uneven tyre wear.

    If found faulty, insist on replacement of the complete "dead axle" under warranty.

    Cheers.

    This issue has been finally identified by Ramkay FIAT. This is the same problem as said by gurjinder but mine is a 2012 Model.
    As it would a full day work, asked me to leave the car by Monday. Hope this will be fixed soon !

    Hey Vignesh, any further update on this? I guess even my t-jet has this issue. I have checked with FASS they said this lot has not been included in the recall. Need to check whats wrong!
