    I have the same issue, I have a standard Trekking, did a retro for the 1st time on a steep incline a week ago, and the noise scared me. Thanks for this forum for sharing. I will go back to the Studio asap.

    Well, I went to Fiat and the groan-ing is gone, we were not able to recreate it, I tried again on my home steep driveway, no way, trasmission noise is gone. So I hope this problem is gone, but in the meantime I have another one and I need your help with the Studio: passenger side heat is not working, blowing cold a/c all the time, and here on Long Island NY this is a serious problem in November. I'll send you a priv. message.

    My 2014 is currently having this same issue and the dodge dealership has had it for 5 weeks now trying to figure it out.

    That's about how long they had mine (also a 2014), but I always assumed most of that time was research and diagnostics and/or waiting for parts rather than actively performing repairs. Also, this was over three years ago when I first got the car. Hard to believe it should take five weeks to fix this issue now, as the cause of the problem is not a mystery and has been documented numerous times.

    I would get FIATCares (on this forum) involved to light a fire under the dealer.

    I took my L a couple weeks ago to fix the groaning issue and it is finally gone! What a relief, they had to replace the clutch release bearing (wore prematurely and was leaking), clutch assembly and flywheel. With all 3 replaced under warranty noise is no where to be heard and it only took my car 1 week for all the work, 5 weeks seems unnecessary.

    I have a 2014 500L 6sp, and it does this exact same thing since I bought it new. It's not under warranty anymore and people have asked me why I didn't have it repaired when it was under warranty. My reason for it is that I don't trust any US Fiat mechanics (so called mechanics that is) as I hardly ever allow anyone to work on my vehicle. Once and only once did I allow them to do so when I had a turbo go out (oily mess internally... they had to replace the turbo). When I got the call to come by to pick up my vehicle, I asked if they were sure that everything was completed and they replied "yes" so I picked up my vehicle just as anyone would do. On my way home, I heard strange rattling sounds. I arrived at home and decided to "check" everything myself. To my dismay, the dealership had not replaced most of the bolts. The core support was loose, the intercooler was loose, wire clips weren't placed back into their proper positions. It was a horrid mess. They even cracked the paint on the front bumper cover / fascia of which they had to repaint due to them bending a bracket below it, forcing pressure backwards against the cover when reinstalled. The car only had approximately 18000 miles at the time. I then took photos and videos, uploaded them to a share online then emailed these to Fiat corporate directly. Minutes later, I received a phone call from the dealership asking me to bring the car back so that they could fix it. I replied back to them that I had already done so and that they weren't qualified to ever touch my car again... and that 8 bolts were missing in various locations. The tech said that the bolts were already missing. I was angry and said that I bought the car brand new and that they were implying that the bolts were always missing is a bunch of nonsense. I've always changed the oil myself (dealer never had) and knew every square inch under my car. I regularly clean under the engine to keep it looking brand new.

    So... when I discovered the whining clutch in reverse thing, I decided that it was "safer" for me to eventually replace my own clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing when it wears out in the future. Oh and Fiat didn't really "do" anything except apologize and offered me a free car wash which I didn't use. Yes I like my car but can't trust a dealership to actually "do" proper work when needed. It was like buying a new car without any warranty based on trust issues.

    I had one weird issue a few days ago, I went to shift into a gear and the clutch pedal didn't come back up fully. Only half way. I had to lift it up with my foot. Since then it was fine, only happened once but it's still strange. Looks like I might have to repair it soon. Any suggestions on a better brand of clutch and T/O bearing? Thanks... sorry for the long rant but it was an interesting story I felt like sharing. LOL

    Interesting (and depressing) story about your service experiences. Also not surprising.

    When I initially had the transmission groaning noise, I'd barely had the car a year and didn't yet appreciate how bad some FIAT techs can be, but I had similar experience to you in the subsequent years. The workmanship and attention to detail was so shoddy, when I brought the car in for service I often got the car back with new and unrelated problems that were unrelated to the reason for the service visit. Usually these new problems had to do with them putting the car back together-- terrible, terrible work on their part. Personally, I think they put the least-knowledgeable tech(s) on FIAT and all the good ones on Jeep and RAM.

    I'll say this-- after 10 days in the shop I never heard that noise again but fast forward almost five years (I'm now on my 63rd month and almost 66K miles with my L) and I'm having a new symptom where it can be hard to get the car in and out of gear-- shifter doesn't want to move. Dunno what's going on, but I do know I will NOT be taking it to the dealer. Will probably go to a transmission shop or import car specialty shop for this. (Only in my dreams am I capable of servicing my own car.)

    In fact, I am Jonesing for a Giulia in the worst way, but I can't bring myself to buy one knowing how terrible the service will be. Bad enough on a $25K car-- intolerable on a $50K one.
