    My First Mopar Part Purchase

    I drove Nemo to Lowe’s last weekend. When I arrived home I noticed I was missing part of the driver’s side mirror stem. How embarrassing! My hub and I jumped back in Nemo and retraced my Fiat-Steps all the way back to Lowe’s, to the parking lot, parking spot, searching high and low. Nothing. We came home following my Fiat-Steps and still no sign of the part. Weird. So out of frustration I consulted the picture taken by the dealership when I bought Nemo a couple of weeks ago - the part was missing even then! And then I dug through their website and found pictures of Nemo before I adopted him. And the part was missing EVEN THEN! How could I not notice that? I hope nothing else is missing - good grief.

    So I went to my local Chrysler dealer and ordered the part. Cost $20, but car is now complete! And we lived happily ever after.

    MOPAR or no car! If you need replacement parts, MOPAR is without doubt the best quality.

    Sounds like if you have photos that prove the part wasn't on the car you bought, the dealer should reimburse your cost. Wouldn't hurt to ask.

    Nemo is missing a fin.

    What's a Abarth?...... Glad you ask! Abarth is a small demon that will possess your soul and inspire you to get steezy at every opportunity.
