When you start up the car for the first time and began to drive it won't shift out of first gear for several blocks. The transmission strains to shift into 2nd. The transmission overall takes a while to get up to speed on the the expressways, it's hard to enter at the prevailing speed. Also, the check engine light won't go off. Even after 4 times ($2,000) to a service garage. There are no fiat services facilities in my area. Not even the dealer where i purchased it will work on it.

There is an active recall for the power train control module for this car but it is not showing up in the nhtsa list. Https://static. Nhtsa. Gov/odi/rcl/2018/rcrit-18v524-1313. Pdf identifies the specific recall for the powertrain control module for the fiat 500x https://www. Nhtsa. Gov/vehicle/2018/fiat/500x/suv/2wd#recalls lists the recalls done for the vehicle and it does not list the powertrain control module recall issue. We just bought this car from carmax and looks like this campaign recall fix was not listed on the site so they didn't address it and now the car wont work or run. If the recall was listed by the vin they would have been required to fix before selling.

I purchased my vehicle in 2020. I was not aware there was an open recall on this vehicle for an oil consumption issue. The dealer did not tell me and i received no notice from fiat/chrysler over the next two years. I began having a problem with the engine cutting out as i was driving down the road without any warning. There were no low oil or engine lights coming on to let me know there was a problem. My car was literally stopping on the road as i was driving! The potential for disaster was high! Fortunately we were able to get the car to the dealer without incident. We actually found out about the recall through our own investigation. The car was 3. 5 quarts low and has since had two oil consumption tests that were supposed to "fix" the problem. It is now july 2023 and am still dealing with the car burning oil at a rate of about 1. 5 quarts every 1500 miles. I have a 2018 fiat 500x with less than 40,000 miles on the engine. Currently my dealership and i are trying to get fiat/chrysler to replace my engine. They have agreed that under the extended warranty afforded to me through the class action lawsuit filed against them over this that i am eligible for this to repair damage done. Unfortunately we are having issues getting authorization for an engine to be ordered.. A lot of bureaucracy! The whole process has been infuriating.. And i do think that my safety as a driver has been compromised. Thank you.

The fiat 2014 automatic transmission on my 500l randomly does not continue to move the car when the transmission is in gear. This is a potential collision hazard to me or other vehicles. The car randomly does not move/accelerate when the gas pedal is depressed. The car coasts to a stop while still in gear and i am pressing the accelerator. I need to restart the car when this happens. From fiat 500usa: "cause of this issue is the gsm, manufactured ficosa international, s. A. Of spain. Wide build tolerances within the supervisor microcontroller (smc) inside the gsm can allow temperature to affect the data transfer rates. When the data transfer rate of the smc becomes desynchronized with the main microcontroller (mmc), the gsm resets and the signals to the transmission may be delayed. This can result in an inability to get the vehicle out of park and/or the transmission not receiving, or there is a delay to receive, the intended gear selection.
