    Did the Fiat dealers forget about us??

    It seem like every time we go online to get some simple replacement part for our cars the Fiat dealerships DISCONTINUED THE PART. Personally I think this is ILLEGAL. The car was sold up to 2 years ago in America and some things are already discontinued!! SHOCKS.....DISCONTINUED! AXLES....YOU CAN ONLY BUY REBUILT NOT NEW! The list goes on and on. They do not even offer CV boots....you must buy a complete axle. THIS IS COMPLETE BS!

    DICorse has kept its ear to the ground for the past 5 years. We have been following what Fiat has been doing not only in America but in Italy. We visit suppliers every year in Italy and learn about the market.

    This is why we keep bringing in many different hard to find parts.......wheel bearing kits.....cv boots, straps, cv joints, tripod bearings.....clutch assemblies, brakes, rotors....trunk lid harnesses for both coupe and cabrio....the list goes on and on.

    What ever you need please contact us. Call me....I am here for you......239-676-5934 In a jam? Call my cell.....973-873-3702 NO DEALER WOULD EVERY GIVE YOU THEIR PERSONAL NUMBER!!

    BOTTOM LINE.....I WANT YOUR BUSINESS! I LIVE FOR THESE CARS.....IT IS MAY PASSION. IF YOU NEED SOMETHING PLEASE GIVE US A TRY. WWW.DICORSE.COM

    WE WILL BE AROUND WHEN THE DEALERS FAIL!

    We will be here all day today, Friday and Saturday to serve you. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Sincerely,

    unfortunately, there is no law against what they are doing. It stinks, but hopefully the aftermarket (you) will step and keep our cars on the road.

    I believe they have to make parts available for 7 years. I may be wrong but this use to be the law. I will do my best to serve you always!

    Ive heard certain auto manufacturers, carry replacement parts. Up to 10 years. Stellantis dealerships would have to honors that. Since their very few Fiat studios left to obtain them from.

    When GM dropped Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Saturn, Hummer. Parts and Remainder warranty issues. Were Handled from Chevrolet Buick, and Cadillac dealerships.

    FCA has to be able to warranty their cars by law. I think the time limit on parts was either a wive's tale or a very obsolete law, but outside warranties there's no guarantee and dealers can substitute rebuilt for new under warranty. Yeah, so far as I know FCA never offered partial assemblies, PCV valves, axle parts, etc... preferring to sell assemblies (a $85 assembly instead of a $12 PCV, a $400 axle instead of a $30 boot set). As for GM products, many of those parts are interchangeable (and common) that GM's suppliers continue to provide them, others not so much. I think it was 4 years before Hummer H3 body parts weren't available to the public. Availability of used Fiat parts will depend on who supplied the part and the contract time span the company has with those vendors. At 18 months of age, some parts were not available for my car. I was fortunate that one dealer in the mid-West returned a part from inventory.

    Thank you to all the vendors who continue to supply stock parts.

    This *was* a law in Germany, to my knowledge it was never a law here in the US. One of the reasons that parts used to be easier to come by was that the OEMs were not very sophisticated in how they stocked parts. They used to keep lots of spares on hand - now they know which parts are common failure items and will keep limited stocks available and savvy dealers will stockpile them but with systems like Product Lifecycle Management and Just-In-Time, there's a massive disincentive to spend money on stocking repair parts. Something like a shock absorber will (hopefully) be supplied by the aftermarket and so the OEM would likely discontinue the OE part pretty quickly after the car stops being sold and most are now out of warranty.

    When Fiat stopped selling cars here in 1983, there were still some Fiat parts and service places around and I bought parts from them years after they stopped selling new cars. Eventually, that dried up. We used salvage cars and aftermarket suppliers for the parts at the shop I worked at. Most of the time, we just needed mechanical parts and never really had an issue. I'm still buying mechanical parts for my '73 Fiat 124 coupe and if I had a Spider even the trim and body parts are around. Same with my GTV6. Alfa stopped selling cars in '95 but I kept buying Alfa dealer parts, usually from Paul Spruell Alfa Romeo years after. In the past 40+ years, other than a used GTI, I've only bought Italian cars for myself and I never had a problem getting parts for my cars. Of course, I tried not to break things

    That was the old days before the internet, so I'm hoping for the best now. Mechanical items are one thing, but the electronics like the BCM and stuff that needs to be programmed I'm not so sure of. I'd hate to pay $100++ to a dealer to get keys or a BCM programmed for an old car. I just saw a press release saying that Stellantis wants to be a customer focused car company so let's see if that's true.

    500'S and 500 Abarths are still current sales items in Europe, are they not? As long as that continues, parts should be available at least from overseas?
    2017 500 Abarth, manual trans, NAV, Beats, Sunroof, 17" wheels, everything. But no mods. None, nada.

    Yes and no. The 500 was reengineered for the North American market- there are differences in body structure, fuel fill location etc. etc. That said, if there's a need, someone will probably fill it. Many years ago I worked for a Bultaco dealer. Bultaco was a small Spanish family run motorcycle manufacturer and they've been out of business for decades but there's no problem getting parts if you know where to look. There's a few hundred thousand 500's running around North America and over the long term I have little doubt that someone will step up to the plate.

    Average car life in Europe is about 18 years and Jeeps shares some parts, so there's hope parts will be available. With over 1/2 million 500's sold in Europe, there is hope that'll keep sources available. Yeah, electronics and lack of readily available local parts (or high costs) could put many Fiats in the scrap yards early.

    If they can pass the "right to repair" laws it could extend service life. Right now, if your dealer doesn't want to work on your car (of any make), you are on borrowed time.

    Sorry, wrong figure... nearly 2.3 million sold in Europe, nearly 870,000 in America.
