    Hello - New Member and Fiat Owner!

    Hello! I am Lizzie, and I purchased a brand new 2016 Fiat 500X Lounge (downsized from a Ford Edge) in Sep 2017, and am just finally getting around to joining the Fiat 500 forum. I've stumbled upon this forum in the past while searching for reviews and also troubleshooting some recent issues with my Fiat (aka Mario). I looked at several micro SUV's in person and online, and fell in love with the Fiat 500X at first test drive. Unfortunately, my car is in the shop due to a consistent issue with my airbag warning sensor coming on and now an issue with my fuel gauge tracker. Love my car, but not loving the time I am finding myself staring into the face of the Fiat Service Mx team. Looking forward to reading others experience (good/bad) w/the 500X.

    Congrats on your 500X ! ... I wish there was one parked next to my 500 Sport instead of a Honda CR-V- much, much nicer to drive. The Honda drives like a Metro Transit bus. Sorry to hear of your issues and hopefully your studio/dealer can remedy them soon- it may be something simple as a software update. It's annoying to be sure to make unplanned trips to the service department- I had a couple of issues with my 500 Sport in the beginning as did my better half and the CR-V.... no brand is immune. Keep us posted.
