Our 2015 Fiat 500C has had a rear wheel bearing, trunk handle and passenger side mirror (due to faulty sensor) replaced before we bought it. Just a few weeks ago the passenger side handle hinge broke. We had that replaced.
The passenger handle could have been a DIY job but I stumbled upon a guy who does Fiat handles out of his house. So cheap it was easier to let him do it. In doing it he told me that the handle hinge had been changed before. I asked him how many he has done. He was not sure but he said at least 300. He has kept all the old broken hinges. He pull out a box full of them. He said he never counted them but he said if he did there could be in excess of 400 in the box. Incredible!!!
You would think after all these years Fiat would have made improvements to the replacement hinge.
