    Were those cars automatics or manuals? Manuals had the clutch pedal recall. Automatics have a reverse light recall. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software on these vehicles may have backup lamp illumination timing that does not meet customer expectations, according to FCA. It basically makes the reverse light come on quicker.

    The two I looked at in detail were auto trans....seems like the CarGuru site made mention of the recall but gave no details. I couldn't find the listings yesterday when I checked again. Seems like they were offered by the Hurst, TX dealer which recently underwent an ownership change...maybe everything was out of date? I may take another look tonight; but selling the Volvo C70 would be like losing a member of the family! Sure got my brain in gear for a bit, though.

    On a manual transmission, you usually put it in neutral to avoid having your foot on the clutch pedal for too long, because otherwise the clutch spring would wear out. I would be surprised if on a DDCT equipped car, the electronics would not fully release the clutch as long as the car is at full stop and the accelerator is not pushed. I never drove a DDCT, but I drove a VW dual clutch DSG, and it definitely does not creep until you hit the accelerator. So if it is really the case that the DDCT suffers any wear when put in Drive at a stop, I would say that the design is not ideal. Especially not for the US, where anything needs to be absolutely fool proof.

    "The roomy Fiat 500L is manufactured in one of the most modern car factories in Europe located in Kragujevac, Serbia. The former Zastava works factory was acquired by Fiat in 2008 and has been completely revamped with the help of $1.3 billion investment to make the factory a cutting edge facility."

    Yes, you are correct. Only in Serbia.
    Oops and thanks for the clarification.

    Our 2014 L dual clutch went out last year at 41K miles. Dealer thought it was control module, but when they dropped the engine, found that the rod that goes into the transmission for the "second" clutch broke. We had an extended warranty, but it was hell getting them to pay five grand for a new transmission since the rod is part of it, and not a piece you can order (so says fiat). Extended warranty plan company did not want to pay because the word "clutch" was used and they considered it not an automatic. After two weeks they gave in and approved the repair. What an ordeal.
