Fiat Warranty

Fiat factory warranties are typically short lived, leaving owners unprotected against future vehicle repair and replacement costs. The vehicle protection specialists at CARCHEX can help you learn more about the most common Fiat issues, what is included in a basic Fiat warranty, and why extending your vehicle coverage with a third-party provider is a smart choice.

What’s Included in a Fiat Warranty?

Here is what’s covered under a 2016 Fiat 500X basic service warranty:

  • 4-year / 50,000-mile basic limited warranty—This warranty covers the repairs needed to correct defects in materials, workmanship, or factory preparation of parts supplied by Fiat.

Essentially, any repairs needed due to mishaps in the Fiat manufacturing process will be covered. These repairs must be made at your authorized Fiat repair facility.

However, the following items are not covered after 12 months or 12,000 miles on the odometer:

What's Included in a Fiat Warranty

  • Brakes (rotors, pads, linings, and drums)
  • Wiper blades
  • Clutch discs or modular clutch assembly
  • Windshield and rear window
  • Wheel alignment and wheel balancing

If your Fiat experiences issues with any of these parts after just a year of driving, you won’t be covered by the basic service warranty provided by your dealer and will be left paying the repair costs.

An extended warranty will give your vehicle the coverage it needs to run smoothly and give you the comfort of knowing that you’re covered in case of an emergency.

What Are Some Common Issues Fiats Experience?

Here are some of the most common issues experienced by Fiat drivers:

  • Brake Pad Replacement—Fiat owners have had a lot of issues with their brake pads. As one of the most crucial safety components of your car, it’s important to keep your brake pads in great shape. Brake pad replacement will cost anywhere between $141 and $199.
  • Alternator Repair—Over time, Fiats can experience faulty alternators. An alternator repair will cost $434 to $514.
  • Wheel Bearings Replacement—Your basic Fiat warranty doesn’t cover the cost of wheel replacement or repairs. The average cost of a wheel bearing replacement is $168 to $309.
  • Brake Rotors and Disc Replacement—After your dealer warranty expires, you’ll be left to pay for this replacement out of pocket—anywhere between $232 and $285.

In addition to these repair and replacement costs, there are a number of other repair costs that drivers will experience as vehicles age. When these arise, you will be on the hook for the repairs.
