    He sure does do a lot of clickbait. He does work on many different cars for a living though. He's quite wrong about FIAT's reliability though, but as far as Jeep's, Chrysler, and Ram's reliability (the full american ones, not the FIAT based ones) he's pretty spot on (I know from a lot of research).

    I also forgot to mention that the front left headlight has a gap on the bottom big enough for me to stick my fingers in there. It doesn't look like there is a bolt that holds the bottom part of the light in. Does that affect visibility? You can see it in photo, is there a bolt down there? It is been holding on with no movement when you push on it, so it might be a bent bracket?Screenshot 2020-06-29 at 10.41.56.jpg

    Broken plastic headlamp casings. Remove the front bumper, to inspect it. Really easy.

They were selling small junk cars, 20 years. Now there one top of the game.
    Honda, Toyota, Datsun/Nissan, Mazda, Suzuki, Hyundai/Kia and other Asian auto manufacturers introduced their vehicles to the US market at loss leader pricing with high quality models. While US manufactures were selling large vehicles with horrible gas mileage in the 70s, the Asian manufacturers were cleaning up winning market share. It worked, check market shares today. FIAT knew they were reentering a competitive market with the 500 and they blew it with a haphazard intro, BAG marketing management, and killed any early momentum with poorly supported dealers.

    It didnt have to go this way; but we have ours and with any luck our 500s will be running for many years.
    Newbe to FIAT,
