    Fiat recall help



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    We bought our Rio 320 in September, a few problems on the swift side now mostly sorted, but I am a worried about the fact that it already needs two upgrades to the Fiat side. Having read elsewhere, that others taking there van in for similar work have not been given it back for safety reasons so I've postponed the upgrades till 2018, anyone on here had this happen to them and if so what was the outcome?

    Get it in now for the upgrades. One of them is for the EGR system which can cause a fire and burn out your pride and joy.

    Best Dealer ?
    Your nearest Fiat dealer is Imperial Commercial over in Govan, but I have never used them. There's a good one in Paisley, McKinnon & Forbes, but they are an Iveco dealer, Ivecos use the same engine so they may be able to do the work, give them a call.
    Thanks Looser cruiser thanked for this post

    If the v5 is in your name and current address, Fiat will contact you, they liase with DVLA in cases like this all manufacturers do

    Iveco may do a recall if their product affected , however normally recall work needs to be carried out by the respective franchised dealer i.e Fiat a Fiat dealership.

    Rio 320

    Fingers crossed

    Thanks for all the information Valentine is currently in London with the van, back late tomorrow. Will talk to Imperial Commercials. When I originally contacted them they didn't seem too worried and booked it in for a software update (90 minutes work) in January and said they would look at the EGR pipe then and if needed replacing would order the part but didn't say it was dangerous or urgent. I'll talk to them again tomorrow.
    Let you know what they say.
