    My 1996 BMW ZM Coupe did this....it was fixed by a recall that installed a valve behind the hatch panel...I thought it was funny, I knew when the wife was thrashing the car as she made it dribble!!!

    My shift up light is not working. Also, not sure if this is an issue or not, but the turbo maxes out at 12 psi no mater how much I hammer the throttle. Oh, and the ground effefects kit on the left and right side of the car is separating.

    I always mounted my boost gauges and shift lights on the dash so I didn't have to take my eyes off the road, when I test drove the car I couldn't figure out why the picked the location they did.

    Really, body panels are pealing from the car?

    Looks like they haven't addressed this issue since it was happening on the Sport model. I'm surprised actually.

    Separating body panels.....shift lights not working.....intermittent tach problems.....rear washer issues.....deja vu FIAT all over again? Not very encouraging with so few cars out there with many of the same issues!

    As excited as I am about this car, hearing that Fiat isn't addressing issues shared with other models is discouraging.

    Indeed this is discouraging and I do expect better. However I'm still stoked about this car. It was my intention to share common issues but not discourage those interested in buying (or who bought) this car. So Fiat USA... please take note.

    I was thinking the same thing. Come on Fiat, don't be like Mini. This is why I left Mini.
