Here is the thread I want. Also, hats off to the FCA/Stellantis ring.
I’ve always owned Japanese cars and a few BMWs, so I never thought I’d buy an FCA product. I used to regard them as the absolute lowest of quality and unreliability.Even after buying a 2022 Ram, I always wondered how to bring it into the shop for this and that and what parts were missing. A third degree was given about how to start dropping out.
Well, I have about 15,000 miles and 8 months of ownership, but so far it’s one of the best cars I’ve ever owned. Too early to say, but before you buy , owners, members of the forums, and even the mechanics who work at the dealership, I have never seen or heard any red flags that would keep me away.

A friend went to work at a local Fiat dealer when he was reintroduced several years ago. He said that everyone out there was bombarded with tales of rusty bodies, long waits for parts from Italy, and regular overheating problems that led to the company’s exit from the U.S. market nearly 50 years ago. , the FIAT dealer in question in the eastern state capital suddenly closed. I haven’t heard from him, but I can’t help but think that even half a century later, many potential buyers have turned away from the Fiat brand due to its poor reputation.
