    2013 Abarth side skirt separation?

    Curious if anyone has encountered the side skirt separation problem on their 2013 Abarth?

    I've read it has been an issue for a number of folks with the 2012's. About to commit on a Abarth.. and hoping Fiat has perhaps resolved it for the 2013's.

    It was supposedly due to the strap down procedures on the train, FIAT said they corrected the matter, shouldn't be an issue on 2013s.

    I purchased a 2013 on friday and one of my skirts are already peeling. Looks like Fiat haven't fixed the problem yet. Going to take it to the dealership later this week to get it repaired. I'll update you guys after the visit.

    Both of my side skirts have come loose in the front. Studio in Columbus GA took photos today while replacing coolant reservoir & hose. Service Mgr. said it is moisture related & thought we'd end up replacing the skirts.

    My 12 Abarth has it on the front right skirt. It only went so far, and stopped. Studio knows about the problem, just have to go there soon and get it fixed ha.

    fiat5004fun ... the side skirt issue was a problem also on early 2012 Sports. I talked to a Corporate tech way back then and said it was a "load lift issue" wouldn't be surprised if that's the case on the Abarth's. I do not see them occur though nearly as much as they did on the 12's.

    I have it on my 2013, dealer was going to fix it for me last friday but I was way too hungover to get into them at 7 in the morning, so I called and cancelled. Its really not that big of a deal for me. I will get around to it at some point.

    bummed to hear it's still happening on the 2013's. Was hoping Fiat had addressed root cause - given the numbers of 2012's affected.
