Interesting article about warranty accruals and claims made. Fiat had unrealistically low claims rates but newer numbers look more typical. The accrual rates of Fiat, BMW and Daimler were almost the same in both 2005 and 2008.

the new Fiat-sler Giardinetta "wagon". Car~nuts this may indeed be my next car purchased if Fiat-sler brings it to the NA market. Whoo-hoo! 4-doors and a nice shade of red with that trademark 500 bodystyle, too? Yes!
Here's what will keep my dream going, too. A 5 or 6-speed tranny, or a competent automatic CVT tranny. Boy howdy!
What could actually happen production wise is a more blunted C-pillar, one that has the roof going back a tad further and then the slant coming in towards the rear wheels. But who knows right now, car fiends. That might break the 500 tradition and I'm sure Fiat doesn't want anything ta do with doing that. I am really excited about this and I sure hope Fiat...I...I mean Fiat-Sler will build this puppy in the Midwestern U.S. and sell it here. I'll have ta check and see where my nearest Chrysler dealer is. Elko might just have one. Wow. This changes everything baby! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, baby!
I will be following this one like Gary Payton all over Michael Jordan in the NBA playoffs. And that is close for those of you not possessing your thinking caps.
