    I think it lacks advertising. Those of us who own one, love em! I think they are RIPE for some aftermarket company to come along and do 'personal designs' on them. I always thought they would do that for the Mini Copper. So many personal touches you could do that would spark a lot of interest. Just my opinion.

    Not sure about other areas but they've changed the Fiat studios to Alfa studios and tossed the Fiats over to their Chrysler Jeep dealerships (that is if they own a CJD dealership). When I stopped by the one by my house to see if they'd also service Fiats they had less than 10 new Fiats on the lot. Doesn't make pushing those sales numbers up any easier.

    It's not easy when a dealer can't get new model year stock(for a variety of reasons). The 18s are just not all that available at this time(the X and Ls are most plentiful from what I've seen...along with a mix of 124s). The incentives aren't so great on the 17s that someone looking for a new car would choose one that is a year old already(in many cases).
    Current vehicles:
    2017 FIAT 500L Lounge
    2013 Volvo C70 Caspian Blue
    Previous Fiats: 2015 500L Lounge; 1979 Strada

    Probably at this point it is a lack of everything!

    I think it would help if people had some to pick from.From my research last month there are just not many choices for people on dealers lots.At least not in a 500 mile radius of me anyway.

    2 FIAT Alfa Studios in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I had to order a new ECU for my Abarth (dont ask). Any way the 1st studio had 5- X's, 1- 500 and 3- 124's compared to 3 rows of Alfa's to include 3- 4c's. I had to tow the car to a different dealer for the flash. 1- 500, 0-L's, 2X's, 0 124's, but all kinds of Alfa's.

    Seems like FIAT became an afterthought real quick. I am still considering a 124, but just dont feel good about the purchase (or FIAT) and of course my Abarth is only worth a fraction of what I paid for it. A local Ford dealer actually offered me 300.00 more than the FIAT dealer on a trade value against a fantastic deal on a 2018 Eco Boost Mustang.

    FIAT over prices their line, the incentives barley bring the price down to where they should be from the beginning, 4 years later when your ready to trade the car is worth 1/4 what it cost new.

    Sign me up ?!.....again..?

    The CDJRF Dealer in our area looks at Fiat as "I have too, because my parents told me." The area that was made to show Fiats had 1 500 pop and 2 500x a pile of trash, stack of tires, and a broken down childs electric Jeep, no brochures and a sales rep that did not know anything and I do mean NOTHING about Fiat. It made me so excited about wanting to buy one I could hardly contain myself. It seems the dealers unspoken motto is; "If it don't say JEEP or got a Hemi in it then we won't sell it, therefore you don't want it." I may be an old redneck from the south but I don't want no stinking Jeep. I WANT A PASTA BURNER!
