Few issues...

Thought it might be useful to capture the issues we've had just in case anyone else has them to.

Ours is one of the early cars, version 0 according to Fiat.

So far...

Had the air con pipe re-routed in the engine bay as it was vibrating on the bulkhead (this lead to a recall I believe )

New front brakes to remove grinding noise (modified pads)

Waiting on new exhaust brackets as the exhaust is bumping on the rear subframe over rough(ish) roads, sleeping policemen etc

Fingers crossed after this all is good...!

Thanks mate, yes the brake issue is known - seems the modified pads cure it but I'll give it a few more weeks to bed in fully before I commit fully!

I've noticed a couple of "bong" type sounds from the back when I've gone over some ramps....not sure if it is worth worrying about till service time?

Sounds like the same issue, it was annoying me so I decided to get it looked at rather than wait. Mine does it quite a bit.

Up to you whether to wait but modified brackets available.

So have you got the modified pads fitted or not?

nope.. i took the garage 7 times and stayed there around 20 days .they said brakes are fine and wait fiat tech who is working in fiat uk he came and he checked in the end he heard the noise(i think it is lie because they heard after i show the video) and now waiting the part (2 weeks nothing heard) i told them in first day about the brakes but they just said everything is ok.. brakes makes noise when gets warm and now is worse than before.To be honest i lost all interest about this car.Don't take your car before brakes get warm because they r only driving 2 mile or not and in that time it won't make noise.And fiat knows this problem but they have only some vin numbers for it might be yours won't show because of that make a video or make the brakes warm before go.. Good luck

Odd, mine was diagnosed on one day, pads delivered and repaired the next. It was the exhaust bracket that took 10 days to come (it's in now having that fitted).

The new pads, so far, have cured the noise though mine did occur after about 1000 miles or so, guess I need to do the same and fully bed in before pronouncing a success. Nice not to have the grinding noise at present though!

Mine did it cold or at temp, odd yours is only one extreme?
