Fiat has launched a recall for the Fiat 500 1.0 GSE.
Approximately 13,309 mild-hybrids from the production period between 9 September 2020 to 30 June 2021 must be inspected at authorised workshops worldwide for possible material defects and the risk of axle shafts breakage.
Replacing the left or right shaft always takes 1.4 hours. In the case of replacing both shafts, the repair time is set at 2.05 hours. The recall with the internal code ‘6343‘ is carried out in cooperation with the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). 2 579 recalled cars are registered in Germany.
It’s not the first time
Fiat has already recalled the “500” once because of axle shafts breakage. We wrote here about the July 2019 recall with internal code ‘6228’, which affected cars built in November and December 2018.
