    Question Faulty thermostat, low mileage

    Has anyone experienced a faulty thermostat early in the mileage? It came on at 26,000mi just after the basic warranty ended, of course. I am a city driver & have taken it out for longer drivers both in winter & now Spring & looks like I will have to replace but am wondering if this is unusual or perhaps a common issue/concern that needs attn by Fiat? Thx Northern VA

    Mine failed at 7K miles. Not unusual. They had a bad batch. Dealer will do it under warranty.

    I think we were below 10k... and it was slightly open all the time.

    Well Safford Springfield is making me go thru a $165 diagnosis that doesn't even go toward the repair. I thought the 'diagnosis' was a computer read and not a real thermostat check. I am ready to sell this vehicle if the service is this bad. Has that been your experience. Anyone interested in a 2016 500x Trekking Plus 26k mi, let me know+ Sad to leave it but am fed up with the lack of service in the area.

    Sorry Italiagirl. Modern cars repairs, out of warranty. Repairs can be very expensive. That price there changing is pretty much normal. That any dealership would charge. That not anyway bad service. Since your car out of warranty. You might look into buying a extended warranty. Piece of mind. I’d also look into a other automotive shops, in your area. Instead of a Fiat one.

    Good Luck.

    $165 is about what the thermostat replacement would cost at your local (trusted) service station or NAPA.
