fiat recalls

In 2017, Fiat announced 10 recalls across 11 of its models according to Rapex. Ducato was recalled most frequently, followed by Panda and Tipo. The oldest car recalled was the Fiat Tipo produced in 2015.

  •  


In 2017, three recalls affected Fiat Ducatos: First, due to the risk of leaf springs cracking, the second due to incorrect production tires and the third because of a possible bursting of the gas recirculation tube.

Another problem Fiat struggled with in 2017 was improper steering wheel wiring which could cause a short-circuit and spontaneous driver’s airbag activation. This defect was found in Fiat Tipo and Freemont models.

Another major recall took place in May due to the risk of airbags not deploying in the event of an accident. The recall affected Panda, Tipo, Doblo, Qubo and Fiorino models manufactured in the autumn of 2016. The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
