    Fiat Punto recall.

    I had a letter from Fiat today saying that on some First Series Punto's (cars and vans) there may be a problem with Corrosion Of Rigid Metal Brake Pipes. Fiat have got details from DVLA so most people affected should have (or will be getting) a letter. I have made an appointment at my local Fiat dealer to get it checked out tomorrow. (Mine is a T reg)vosa.gov.uk/vos…ank

    I've got corrosion on my rigid metal brake pipes, but then it's a 12 year old golf so I guess it's expected

    came up in the MoT actually as an advisory item :thinking:

    How would you know if yours is affected? Ive got a Grande Punto but only a year old?

    Or would i get a letter?

    Mine's a 9 year old Punto...getting it checked out at Fiat's expense...and if it needs fixing then they'll pay for that too :-D

    I have just got rid of a W reg Fait Punto. I loved it but often had corrosion problems : various places along exhaust pipe, sump tank and suspension springs.

    Exhaust pipes brand new are only guaranteed for 2 years ? :? unless it's stainless steel?

    Got mine checked this morning and all the pipes need replacing! All going to be done and paid for by Fiat next week.
