From a survey of 1.1 million cars recently done by CR, as reported by NBC news:
"The four lowest-scoring brands were all from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Chrysler Group, as were five of the bottom seven. Fiat scored the lowest of the 28 brands and the Fiat 500L was named the least reliable among 265 models included in the survey. The survey is seen as a key factor in influencing American car shoppers."
Other than THAT, I see no reason to be concerned :smile:

Be sure to get the extended warranty, AAA Premium membership, a flare kit and emergency rations.I might have just saved $15K on the wife's next car!
Out running errands yesterday, and the daughter spots a Fiat 500L. "Mom, you should get a 4 door Fiat". I explain that the 500L only comes with FWD.
But, it got me to thinking, and I jumped on-line this morning to confirm.
Yep, debuted this past week at the LA Auto Show - Fiat 500X. 2.4L TigerShark engine with 180HP, available AWD, lots of tech and toys.
No official release date, but expected 1H 2015 as a 2016 model.
Good. They can research how to stop their cars from breaking down. :)
