    some people believe that's because they were manufactured in different plants in different countries.
    Is that true ? I thought all 500Ls come from the same plant in Serbia, from the beginning ...

    The 500L is only manufactured in the FCA plant located in Serbia.



    "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.

    These are the reasons that Fiat has phased out the DDCT in the 500L:

    "...But unlike European consumers, most American motorists haven't driven a stick shift, so they aren't accustomed to a dual clutch's more abrupt gear shifts."and

    "Dual-clutch transmissions 'have taken a beating among consumers,' said IHS researcher David Petrovski. 'If people aren't used to it, they think something is wrong.'"

    I've talked to the person at Fiat that gets all the reports on problems and they said that in nearly every case there is nothing wrong with the transmission.

    Makes me want to just try a DC trans just to see what all the hoopla is about. I've driven plenty of sticks in the last 45 years, including driving a school bus when I was in high school.

    Update. I've got 31000 miles and 3 new transmissions on my 2014 500L and the car won't pass inspection period I was told I need to drive it on the highway for like 60 miles. With my luck it'll break down while I'm in the fast lane of the highway with a semi behind me. When I asked why it wouldn't pass inspection I was told by the dealership that they don't know but usually it just has to be driven on the highway. This didn't happen last year.

    Guess I just learned something. What's the explanation for all the transmissions needed.

    In related news, I've spotted a couple of well-priced low-mileage '15 500c models that had a "recall" on the trans...different trans from the OP I believe. Would anyone have any insight into THAT tranny snafu? Would it be related even though they have different slush boxes?

    You might have to put miles on the car due to erasing the check engine codes. State inspection typically wont pass if something shows not ready. There are a few things that go to not ready after codes get erased.

    When an inspection station tells you that it means the car hasn't passed all its readiness checks. Could it be the car was driven much since the last time it was at the dealer or since the battery was disconnected? Did the car's battery gone flat lately or need to be jump started?
