This thread is for listing any model Fiat SAFETY RECALLS only. The mods will add to the master list when a notice is received. If you receive a RECALL notice, send the mods a PM with some of the details for it to be added to this thread, then feel free to start a new thread for discussion in this subforum. This may help a future used Fiat buyer with a resource on previous issues related to the different models and manufactured year and for those that are not aware of the TSB's for whatever reason.
