2012 Fiat 500 - 3C3CFFBR5CT- Oviedo, FL: August 8th, 2012
The steering wheel makes a bad noise when turning the wheel. I brought the vehicle in to the dealership and they verified that it is a defective steering column. They put part on order. It has been a month and still not in. I called the corporate headquarters and they said that they would try to expedite the part. I explained that i've been waiting for a month now, and the dealership said they would cancel the order and re order it. What do i have to get in a crash first and wait another month? Maybe hurt not only myself, but god forbid others? Please help.

2012 Fiat 500 - 3C3CFFCR5CT- Perris , CA: May 14th, 2012
The airbag failure warning light has consistently activated on my new fiat since i purchased the vehicle new. Have returned the car for service to the dealer numerous times regarding this issue; many times the dealer has informed me that they show no indication of the airbag failure light being activated. Since then, i have taken numerous photos with my phone of the airbag failure warning light being triggered as the dealer's service department seemed to need more evidence of this occurrence. However, the issue has yet to be resolved and i am seeking resolution through the better business bureau. *js

2012 Fiat 500 - 3C3CFFAR2CT- Los Gatos, CA: December 31st, 2011
I'd pulled over in a parking lot to take a phone call (bluetooth reception was static-y), and was sitting with my foot resting on the brake pedal. I felt a kick under my foot, turned the engine off and removed my foot from the brake as i completed the call. When i started the car and pulled to the edge of the lot's exit, i of course stepped on the brake to stop and check for traffic, but the brake pedal was stuck and i rolled into the street. I hope i used the handbrake to stop the car, although i really don't remember. I did reverse back into the parking lot, using the slight slope of the driveway to ensure i could stop once out of the street. The car was towed to the dealer. It's probably unrelated, but the voice recognition system was working sporadically that same morning. *kb

2012 Fiat 500 - 3C3CFFBR7CT- Glendale, CA: November 4th, 2011
Car was stalling and shutting off. Had my daughter in the car. Couldn't start the car after 3 attempts. Then after waiting a good 3 minutes started the car and revved the engine at 4000 rpm and everything seemed back to normal. Dealer hasn't been able to duplicate.

2012 Fiat 500 - 3C3CFFAR2C2- Long Beach, CA: October 28th, 2011
This vehicle was recently awarded an iihs top pick safety award, but only for vehicles manufactured after july, 2011, when fiat redesigned the seats for better side-impact protection. I own a fiat 500 manufactured before july, so clearly my car is not as safe as those built afterward. Can nhtsa investigate and possibly force fiat to recall the early vehicles to install the safer seats? From my dealings with them on simple, little things i'm confident they wouldn't volunteer to do it on their own.
