Best regards and good motoring!

FIAT ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS AND FIAT RE-CONDITIONED SPARE PARTS
FIAT ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS
These spare parts ensure the reliability
and technological quality needed to travel safely. Designed on the basis of the same
project of the components fitted on the
vehicle, the original spare parts undergo
very harsh tests before being produced or
re-conditioned, with the aim of being used
to keep the vehicle performance unchanged in time.
Therefore, for an accurate and careful
maintenance, choose Fiat original spare
parts (re-conditioned and non re-conditioned), which can be identified by the features of their package and which are available only at the Fiat Dealership.
2
By choosing Fiat original spare parts (reconditioned and non re-conditioned) you
can rely on a rapid and efficient service
provided by skilled operators, on good
equipment and a wide range of parts.
The Fiat Dealership uses Fiat original spare
parts and re-conditioned spare parts.
FIAT RE-CONDITIONED
SPARE PARTS
They are Fiat original spare parts/mechanical assemblies, already used but given back to Fiat, which renews them completely to meet the same qualitative and
reliability requirements of the newly original spare parts.
Fiat re-conditioned spare parts:
give the Customers the opportunity to
buy spare mechanical assemblies (engines, transmissions, etc.) at particularly favourable prices;
contribute to safeguard the environment by reducing scrapping operations
and the disposal of removed materials.

FUEL
RECOMMENDATION
Fuels containing 5% or less methanol may
be suitable for use in your vehicle if they
contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
GASOLINE ENGINE
NOTE If you are not satisfied with the driveability or fuel economy of your vehicle
when you are using a gasoline/ alcohol
blend, you should switch back to unleaded gasoline containing no alcohol.
If your vehicle is not fitted with a restrictor
in the fuel filler pipe then you may use leaded or unleaded gasoline with an octane
number (RON) of 85 or higher.
Note, it is preferable to use unleaded gasoline.
If your vehicle is fitted with a restrictor
in the fuel filler pipe then you must use
unleaded gasoline with an octane number
(RON) of 91 or higher (or RON of 95 or
higher if it is stated on the fuel filler lid).
These vehicles are also identified by a label attached near the fuel filler pipe that
states: “UNLEADED FUEL ONLY”,
“NUR UNVERBLEITES BENZIN”, “ENDAST BLYFRI BENSIN” or “SOLO
GASOLINA SIN PLOMO”.
If the “RON 95” label is attached, you
must use unleaded gasoline with an octane
number (RON) of 95 or higher.
10
68KM086
Gasoline/Ethanol blends
Blends of unleaded gasoline and ethanol
(grain alcohol), also known as gasohol, are
commercially available in some areas.
Blends of this type may be used in your vehicle if they are no more than 10%
ethanol. Make sure this gasoline- ethanol
blend has octane ratings no lower than
those recommended for gasoline.
Gasoline/Methanol blends
Blends of unleaded gasoline and methanol
(wood alcohol) are also commercially available in some areas. DO NOT USE fuels
containing more than 5% methanol under
any circumstances. Fuel system damage or
vehicle performance problems resulting
from the use of such fuels are not the responsibility of Fiat and may not be covered
under the New Vehicle Warranty.
IMPORTANT Be careful not to spill fuel
containing alcohol while refueling. If fuel is
spilled on the vehicle body, wipe it up immediately. Fuels containing alcohol can
cause paint damage, which is not covered
under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
DIESEL ENGINE
The diesel fuel should be with Cetane Index higher than 50 and sulfur content less
than 50 ppm (parts per million). You
should use the diesel fuel conformable to
EN590 that corresponded to Euro V emission control. Do not use marine diesel fuel, heating oils and so forth. If you use improper diesel fuel, it may cause serious engine damage.
009-056 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
14:11
Pagina 11
IMPORTANT The vehicle must only be
filled with diesel fuel for motor vehicles,
in compliance with European Standard
EN590. The use of other products or mixtures may irreparably damage the engine
with invalidation of the warranty due to
the damage caused. In the event of accidentally filling with another type of fuel, do
not start the engine and empty the tank.
If the engine has been run even for only a
very short time, in addition to the tank,
it is also necessary to drain out the whole
fuel circuit.
KEYS
IMPORTANT The fuel tank has an air
space to allow for fuel expansion in hot
weather. If you continue to add fuel after
the filler nozzle has automatically shut off
or an initial blowback occurs, the air
chamber will become full. Exposure to
heat when fully fuelled in this manner will
result in leakage due to fuel expansion. To
prevent such fuel leakage, stop filling after the filler nozzle has automatically shut
off, or when using an alternative non automatic system, initial vent blowback occurs.
IMPORTANT All the keys and the metal
tag must be handed over to the new owner when selling the vehicle.
WARNING
Do not put naked flames or
lighted cigarettes near the
fuel filler hole as there is a danger of
fire. Do not bend too close to the hole
either so as not to breathe in harmful
vapours.
Your vehicle comes with a pair of identical keys. Keep the spare key in a safe place.
One key can open all of the locks on the
vehicle.
The key identification number is stamped
on a metal tag provided with the keys or
on the keys. Keep the tag (for versions/
markets, where provided) in a safe place.
If you lose your keys, you will need this
number to have new keys made.
79J020
Fiat CODE - Immobilizer System
(for versions/markets, where provided)
This system is designed to help prevent
vehicle theft by electronically disabling the
engine starting system.
The engine can be started only with your
vehicle’s original immobilizer ignition key
which has an electronic identification code
programmed into it. The key communicates the identification code to the vehicle when the key is turned to the “ON”
position. If you need to make spare keys,
see your Fiat Dealership. The vehicle must
be programmed with the correct identification code for the spare keys. A key
made by an ordinary locksmith will not
work.

CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS
Fiat highly recommends that you use a
child restraint system to restrain infants
and small children. Many different types of
child restraint systems are available; make
sure that the restraint system you select
meets applicable safety standards.
All child restraint systems are designed to
be secured in vehicle seats by either seat
belts (lap belts or the lap portion of lapshoulder belts) or by special rigid lower
anchor bars built into the seat. Whenever possible, Fiat recommends that child restraint systems be installed on the rear
seat. According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained
in rear seating positions than in front seating positions.

WARNING
This section of the owner’s
manual describes your Fiat’s
SEAT BELT PRETENSIONER SYSTEM. Please read and follow ALL
these instructions carefully to minimize your risk of severe injury or
death.
Read this section and the “Supplemental
Restraint System (air bags)” section to
learn more about the pretensioner system.
The seat belt pretensioner system works
with the SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT
SYSTEM (Air Bags). The crash sensors and
the electronic controller of the air bag system also control the seat belt pretensioners. When the air bags are triggered,
the pretensioners are also triggered. For
precautions and general information including servicing the pretensioner system,
refer to the “Supplemental Restraint System (air bags)” section in addition to this
“Seat Belt Pretensioner System” section,
and follow all those precautions.

The pretensioner is located in each front
seat belt retractor. The pretensioner tightens the seat belt so the belt fits the occupant’s body more snugly in the event of
a frontal crash. The retractors will remain
locked after the pretensioners are activated. Upon activation, some noise will occur and some smoke may be released.
These conditions are not harmful and do
not indicate a fire in the vehicle.
The driver and all passengers must be
properly restrained by wearing seat belts
at all times, whether or not a pretensioner is equipped at their seating position, to
minimize the risk of severe injury or death
in the event of a crash.
Sit fully back in the seat; sit up straight; do
not lean forward or sideways. Adjust the
belt so the lap portion of the belt is worn
low across the pelvis, not across the waist.
Please refer to the “Seat Adjustment” section and the instructions and precautions
about the seat belts in this “Seat Belts and
Child Restraint Systems” section for details on proper seat and seat belt adjustments.
46
Pagina 46
Please note that the pretensioners along
with the air bags will activate only in severe frontal collisions. They are not designed to activate in rear impacts, side impacts, rollovers, or minor frontal collisions. The pretensioners can be activated only once. If the pretensioners are activated (that is, if the air bags are activated), have the pretensioner system serviced by an authorized Fiat Dealership as
soon as possible.
If the “AIR BAG” light on the instrument
cluster does not blink or come on briefly
when the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position, stays on for more than 10
seconds, or comes on while driving, the
pretensioner system or the air bag system
may not work properly. Have both systems inspected by an authorized Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
WARNING
Service on or around the
pretensioner system components or wiring must be performed
only by an authorized Fiat Dealership
who is specially trained. Improper service could result in unintended activation of pretensioners or could render the pretensioner inoperative. Either of these two conditions may result in personal injury.
To prevent damage or unintended activation of the pretensioners, be sure the battery is disconnected and the ignition switch
has been in the “LOCK” position for at
least 90 seconds before performing any
electrical service work on your Fiat.
Do not touch pretensioner system components or wiring. The wires are wrapped
with yellow tape or yellow tubing, and the
couplers are yellow. When scrapping your
Fiat, ask your Fiat Dealership, body repair
shop, or scrap yard for assistance.

65D236A
65D237A
Front air bags are designed to inflate only in severe frontal collisions. They are not
designed to inflate in rear impacts, side impacts, rollovers or minor frontal collisions,
since they would offer no protection in
those types of accidents. Remember, since
an air bag deploys only one time during an
accident, seat belts are needed to restrain
occupants from further movements during the accident.
Therefore, an air bag is NOT a substitute
for seat belts. To maximize your protection, ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT
BELTS. Be aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that may occur in
an accident.
WARNING
An air bag supplements, or
adds to, the crash protection
offered by seat belts. The driver and
all passengers must be properly restrained by wearing seat belts at all
times, whether or not an air bag is
mounted at their seating position, to
minimize the risk of severe injury or
death in the event of a crash.
65D607
WARNING
Do not install a rear- facing
child restraint in the front
passenger’s seat. If the passenger’s
front air bag inflates, a child in a rearfacing child restraint could be killed
or severely injured. The back of a
rear- facing child restraint would be
too close to the inflating air bag.
If you must use a front- facing child restraint in the front passenger’s seat, be
sure to move the front passenger’s seat as
far back as possible. Please refer to the
“Seat Belts and Child Restraint Systems”
section in the “BEFORE DRIVING” section for details on securing your child.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
In a frontal collision, the crash sensors will
detect rapid deceleration, and if the controller judges that the deceleration represents a severe frontal crash, the controller will trigger the inflators. If your vehicle is equipped with side air bags and side
curtain air bags, crash sensors will detect
a side collision, and if the controller judges
that the side collision is severe enough, it
will trigger a side inflator. The inflators inflate the appropriate air bags with nitrogen or argon gas. The inflated air bags provide a cushion for your head (front air bags
and side curtain air bags only) and upper
body. The air bag inflates and deflates so
quickly that you may not even realize that
it has activated. The air bag will neither
hinder your view nor make it harder to
exit the vehicle.
009-056 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
Air bags must inflate quickly and forcefully in order to reduce the chance of serious or fatal injuries. However, an unavoidable consequence of the quick inflation is that the air bag may irritate bare
skin, such as the facial area against a front
air bag. Also, upon inflation, a loud noise
will occur and some powder and smoke
will be released. These conditions are not
harmful and do not indicate a fire in the
car. Be aware, however, that some air bag
components may be hot for a while after
inflation.
14:11
Pagina 53
54G582
A seat belt helps keep you in the proper
position for maximum protection when an
air bag inflates. Adjust your seat as far back
as possible while still maintaining control
of the vehicle. Sit fully back in your seat;
sit up straight; do not lean over the steering wheel or dashboard. Front occupants
should not lean on or sleep against the
door. Please refer to the “Seat Adjustment” section and the “Seat Belts and
Child Restraint Systems” section in the
“BEFORE DRIVING” section for details
on proper seat and seat belt adjustments.
WARNING
The driver should not lean
over the steering wheel. The
front passenger should not rest his or
her body against the dashboard, or
otherwise get too close to the dashboard. For vehicles with side air bags
and side curtain air bag, occupants
should not lean on or sleep against
the door. In these situations, the outof- position occupant would be too
close to an inflating air bag, and may
suffer severe injury.
Do not attach any objects to, or place
any objects over, the steering wheel
or dashboard. Do not place any objects between the air bag and the driver or front passenger. These objects
may interfere with air bag operation
or may be propelled by the air bag
in the event of a crash. Either of these
conditions may cause severe injury.
For vehicles with side air bags, do not
place seat covers on the front seats,
because seat covers could restrict the
air bag’s inflation. Also, do not place
any cup holders on the door, as the
cup holder could be propelled by the
air bag in the event of a crash. Either
of these conditions may cause severe
injury.

Note that even though your vehicle may
be moderately damaged in a collision, the
collision may not have been severe enough
to trigger the front or side air bags to inflate. If your vehicle sustains ANY frontend or side damage, have the air bag system inspected by an authorized Fiat Dealership to ensure it is in proper working
order.
Your vehicle is equipped with a diagnostic
module which records information about
the air bag system if the air bags deploy
in a crash. The module records information about overall system status, which
sensors activated the deployment.

Pagina 54
SERVICING THE AIR BAG
SYSTEM
If the air bags inflate, have the air bags and
related components replaced by an authorized Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
If your vehicle ever gets in deep water and
the driver’s floor is submerged, the air bag
controller could be damaged. If it does,
have the air bag system inspected by the
Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
Special procedures are required for servicing or replacing an air bag. For that reason, only an authorized Fiat Dealership
should be allowed to service or replace
your air bags. Please remind anyone who
services your Fiat that it has air bags.
Service on or around air bag components
or wiring must be performed only by an
authorized Fiat Dealership. Improper service could result in unintended air bag deployment or could render the air bag inoperative. Either of these two conditions
may result in severe injury.
To prevent damage or unintended inflation of the air bag system, be sure the battery is disconnected and the ignition
switch has been in the “LOCK” position
for at least 90 seconds before performing any electrical service work on your Fiat. Do not touch air bag system components or wires. The wires are wrapped
with yellow tape or yellow tubing, and the
couplers are yellow for easy identification.
Scrapping a vehicle that has an uninflated
air bag can be hazardous. Ask your Fiat
Dealership, body repair shop or scrap
yard for help with disposal.

GENERAL WARNINGS
WARNING
Never travel with objects on
your lap, in front of your
chest or with a pipe, pencil, etc. between your lips; injury may result in
the event of the air bag being triggered.
WARNING
Remember that with the key
engaged and at ON, even if
the engine is not running, the air bags
may be triggered on a stationary vehicle if it is bumped by another moving car. Therefore, never seat children
on the front seat even when the vehicle is stationary. On the other hand
remember that if the key is at LOCK,
no safety system (air bags or pretensioners) is triggered in the event of an
impact; in this case, failure to come
into action cannot be considered as a
sign that the system is not working
properly.
14:11
Pagina 55
WARNING
If the vehicle has been stolen
or an attempt to steal it has
been made, if it has been subjected to
vandals or floods, have the air bag
system checked by Fiat Dealership.
WARNING
Do not wash the seat back
rest with pressurised water
or steam (by hand or at automatic
seat washing stations).
WARNING
The front air bag is triggered
for shocks greater in magnitude that the pretensioners. For impacts between these two thresholds,
it is therefore normal that only the
pretensioners are triggered.
WARNING
Do not hook rigid objects to
the coat hooks and to the
support handles.

Cruise Control is an electronic device to
assist driving, which makes it possible to
maintain the vehicle at the desired speed
without the need to press the accelerator.
The device must only be used in particular safety conditions, at a speed above 40
km/h (25 mph), on long stretches of straight, dry road with little change in speed
(e.g. motorways). Therefore it is not recommended to use this device on extraurban roads with traffic. Do not use it in
cities.

recommended to use the device only at
high gears (4th, 5th of 6th).
❒ When travelling downhill with the device engaged, the vehicle speed may slightly exceed the stored one.
❒ Press the “SET/COAST” button (3):
vehicle speed is stored and so it is possible to release the accelerator.
NOTE If required (e.g. during overtaking),
it's possible to momentarily increase the
speed of the vehicle by pushing the accelerator. The vehicle will return to the previously set speed when the pedal is released.
RESETTING STORED SPEED
If the device is disengaged for one of the
following reasons:
❒ pressing the brake pedal;
❒ pressing the clutch (on vehicles with
manual gearbox);
❒ pressing the “CANCEL” button (4);

❒ following ESP® system intervention (for
versions/markets, where provided),
REDUCTION OF STORED
SPEED
❒ when the vehicle speed is below 36
km/h (22 mph);
to reset the stored speed, follow these
steps.
When Cruise Control is operating, there
are two ways to reduce the stored speed:
❒ in the event of ESP® system intervention (where provided);
❒ Accelerate gently, bringing the vehicle
close to the stored speed.
❒ by disengaging the device and then storing the new speed,
❒ in the event of system breakdown.
❒ Engage the gear selected at the time the
previous speed was stored.
or
❒ Press the “RES/ACC” button (2).
INCREASE IN STORED SPEED
When Cruise Control is operating, there
are two ways to increase the stored
speed:
❒ by pressing the accelerator and then
storing the new speed reached,
or
❒ by pressing the “RES/ACC” button (2).
Each time the button is pressed, this
corresponds to a constant increase in
speed, while holding the button down
increases the speed in a continuous
manner.
❒ by pressing the “SET/COAST” button
(3). Each time the button is pressed, this
corresponds to a constant decrease in
speed, while holding the button down
decreases the speed in a continuous
manner.
DISENGAGING OF THE DEVICE
The device is disengaged in one of the following cases:
❒ pressing the “CANCEL” button (4);
❒ pressing the brake pedal;
❒ pressing the clutch (on vehicles with
manual gearbox);
❒ switching off the engine (starter switch set to “OFF”);
❒ by disabling the system (“MAIN” button (1) set to “OFF”);
❒ when the vehicle speed is reduced by
approximately 20% compared with the
set speed;
70
NOTE By pressing the accelerator, the system is not actually disengaged, but the required acceleration takes precedence over
maintaining the stored speed: Cruise Control, however, remains enabled and will
return to the previous condition once the
accelerator has been released, without having to press the “RES/ACC” button (2).
IMPORTANT When travelling with the
device on, never set the gearshift lever to
neutral.
IMPORTANT In the event of malfunction
or failure, disable the device (“MAIN” button (1) set to “OFF”) and see your Fiat
Dealership.

MAINTENANCE
If you do not use the air conditioner for
a long period, such as during winter, it may
not give the best performance when you
start using it again. To help maintain optimum performance and durability of your
air conditioner, it needs to be run periodically. Operate the air conditioner at
least once a month for one minute with
the engine idling. This circulates the refrigerant and oil and helps protect the internal components.
Your air conditioner is equipped with air
filters. Clean or replace them as specified
in the “Maintenance Schedule” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section. Have this job done by your Fiat Dealership as the lower glove box must be
lowered for this job.
Pagina 104
NOTE Your vehicle uses the air conditioning refrigerant HFC-134a, commonly
called “R-134a”. R-134a replaced R-12
around 1993 for automotive applications.
Other refrigerants are available, including
recycled R-12, but only R-134a should be
used in your vehicle.

Common
What is MP3/WMA?
MP3 (MPEG1/2 Audio Layer-II/III) and
WMA (Windows MediaTM Audio) are
the compression formats of digital audio.
The former is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group), and the latter is developed by Microsoft Corporation. Using these compression formats,
you can record the contents of about 10
music CDs on a single CD media (This figures refer to data recorded on a 650 MB
CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128
kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1
kHz).
❒ High bit rate and high sampling frequency are recommended for high
quality sounds.
❒ Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not
recommended because playing time is
not displayed properly and sound may
be skipped.
❒ The playback sound quality differs depending on the encoding circumstances.
For details, refer to the user manual of
your own encoding software and writing software.
MP3
❒ It is recommended to set the bit rate
to “128 kbps or more” and “fixed”.
120
NOTE Never assign the “.mp3”, or
“.wma” file name extension to a file that
is not in the MP3/WMA format. This may
not only produce noise from the speaker
damage, but also damage your hearing.
Recording MP3/WMA files
on a CD-media
❒ You are recommended to minimize the
chances of making a disc that contains
both CD-DA files and MP3/WMA files.
❒ If CD-DA files are on the same disc as
MP3 or WMA files, the songs may not
play in the intended order, or some
songs may not play at all.
❒ When storing MP3 data and WMA data on the same disc, use different folders for each data.
❒ Do not record files other than
MP3/WMA files and unnecessary folder on a disc.
❒ The name of an MP3/WMA file should
be added by rules as shown in the following descriptions and also comply
with the rules of each file system.
071-128 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
❒ The file extension “.mp3” or “.wma”
should be assigned to each file depending on the file format.
❒ You may encounter trouble in playing
MP3/WMA files or displaying the information of MP3/WMA files recorded
with certain writing software or CD
recorders.
❒ This unit does not have a play list function.
❒ Although Multi-session recording is

3. To release
WARNING
Never drive your vehicle with
the parking brake on: rear
brake effectiveness can be reduced
from overheating, brake life may be
shortened, or permanent brake damage may result.
If the parking brake does not hold
the vehicle securely or does not fully release, have your vehicle inspected immediately by an authorized Fiat Dealership.

54G039
For automatic transaxle vehicles, always
set the parking brake before moving the
gearshift lever to the “P” (PARK) position.
If you park on an incline and shift into “P”
before setting the parking brake, the
weight of the vehicle may make it difficult
to shift out of “P” when you are ready to
drive the vehicle.
When preparing to drive the vehicle,
move the gearshift lever out of the “P” position before releasing the parking brake.
WARNING
Always set the parking brake
fully before leaving your vehicle or it may move, causing injury
or damage. When parking, make sure
the gearshift lever for manual
transaxle vehicles is in 1st gear or “R”
(Reverse) and the gearshift lever for
automatic transaxle vehicles is in “P”
(Park). Remember, even though the
transaxle is in gear or in Park, you
must set the parking brake fully.
WARNING
When parking the vehicle in
extremely cold weather, the
following procedure should be used:
1) Set the parking brake.
2) Manual transaxle - turn off the engine, then shift into reverse or first
gear.
Automatic transaxle - shift into
“P” (Park) and turn off the engine.
3) With the engine off, get out of the
vehicle and put chocks under the
wheels.
4) Release the parking brake.
When you return to your vehicle,
you must remember to first set the
parking brake, then remove the
wheel chocks.

PEDAL
WARNING
If brake squeal is excessive
and occurs each time the
brakes are applied, you should have
the brakes checked by your Fiat
Dealership.
Clutch Pedal (1)
(For manual transaxle)
The clutch pedal is used to disengage the
drive to the wheels when starting the engine, stopping, or shifting the gearshift
lever. Depressing the pedal disengages the
clutch.
IMPORTANT Do not drive with your
foot resting on the clutch pedal. It could
result in excessive clutch wear, clutch
damage, or unexpected loss of engine
braking.
(1)
Manual transaxle
(2)
(3)
79J072
Brake Pedal (2)
Your Fiat vehicle is equipped with either
front and rear disc brakes or front disc
brakes and rear drum brakes. Depressing the brake pedal applies both sets of
brakes.
You may hear occasional brake squeal
when you apply the brakes. This is a normal condition caused by environmental
factors such as cold, wet, snow, etc.
WARNING
Do not “ride” the brakes by
applying them continuously
or resting your foot on the pedal. This
will result in overheating of the brakes
which could cause unpredictable
braking action, longer stopping distances, or permanent brake damage.
Accelerator Pedal (3)
Automatic transaxle
79J154
This pedal controls the speed of the engine. Depressing the accelerator pedal increases power output and speed.

RACK ANCHORS
We recommend that you always ask a FIAT Dealership about frequency band, max
output power, antenna position at vehicle
and specific conditions for installation
and/or use before installing a radio transmitter in your vehicle. Such equipments
may cause the electronic control system
to malfunction if they are incorrectly installed or they are not suited for the vehicle.
You can use the roof rails to attach the
optional roof rack which is available at
your Fiat Dealership. If you use a roof
rack, observe the instructions and precautions in this section and provided with
the roof rack.
(for versions/markets, where provided)
Make sure the roof rack is securely installed.
To mount various types of cargo (such
as skis, bicycles, etc.) properly, use suitable attachments which are available
from your Fiat Dealership. Be sure to
install the attachments properly and securely according to the instructions
provided. Do not mount cargo directly on the roof panel. The cargo can
damage the roof panel.
The gross weight of the roof rack plus
cargo must not exceed the loading capacity (50 kg -110 lbs). Also, do not let
the gross vehicle weight (fully loaded
vehicle including driver, passengers, cargo, roof load and trailer tongue weight)
exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) listed in the “SPECIFICATIONS” section of this manual.

Roof rack anchors
Secure the front and rear ends of long
items – such as wood panels, surfboards and so forth – to both the front
and rear of the vehicle. You should protect the painted surfaces of the vehicle from scuffing caused by tie-down
ropes.

from damage.
For vehicles with roof rack anchors,
make sure the anchors are covered
with the caps when not in use.
79J089

WARNING
Abrupt maneuvers or failure
to properly secure cargo can
allow the cargo to fly off the vehicle
and hit others, causing personal injury or property damage.
Mount cargo securely and avoid
abrupt maneuvers such as “jackrabbit” starts, sharp turns, fast cornering
and sudden braking. Check periodically to make sure that cargo is securely fastened.
Large, bulky, long, or flat items can
affect vehicle aerodynamics or be
caught by the wind, and can reduce
vehicle control resulting in an accident and personal injury. Drive cautiously at reduced speed when carrying this type of cargo.

WARNING
Avoid breathing exhaust gases. Exhaust gases contain
carbon monoxide, a potentially lethal
gas that is colorless and odorless.
Since carbon monoxide is difficult to
detect by itself, be sure to take the
following precautions to help prevent
carbon monoxide from entering your
vehicle.
– Do not leave the engine running in
garages or other confined areas.
– Do not park with the engine running for a long period of time, even in
an open area. If it is necessary to sit
for a short time in a parked vehicle
with the engine running, make sure
the air intake selector is set to
“FRESH AIR” and the fan is at high
speed.
– Avoid operating the vehicle with the
tail gate or trunk open. If it is necessary to operate the vehicle with the
tail gate or trunk open, make sure the
sunroof (for versions/markets, where
provided) and all windows are closed,
and the blower is at high speed with
the air intake selector set to “FRESH
AIR”.

– To allow proper operation
of your vehicle’s ventilation
system, keep the air inlet grille in
front of the windshield clear of snow,
leaves, or other obstructions at all
times.
– Keep the exhaust tailpipe area
clear of snow and other material to
help reduce the buildup of exhaust
gases under the vehicle. This is particularly important when parked in
blizzard conditions.
– Have the exhaust system inspected periodically for damage and leaks.
Any damage or leaks should be repaired immediately.
– abnormal wear, cracks and damage
– loose wheel bolts
– existence of foreign material such as
nails, stones, etc.
Refer to “Tires” in “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE” section for details.
Look for fluid and oil leaks.
NOTE It is normal for water to drip from

WARNING
Make sure the hood is fully
closed and latched before
driving. If it is not, it can fly up unexpectedly during driving, obstructing
your view and resulting in an accident.
ENGINE OIL
CONSUMPTION
It is normal for the engine to consume
some engine oil during normal vehicle operation.
The amount of engine oil consumed depends on the viscosity of the oil, the quality of the oil and the conditions the vehicle is driven under.
More oil is consumed during high- speed
driving and when there is frequent acceleration and deceleration. Under high
loads, your engine also will consume more
oil.
A new engine also consumes more oil,
since its pistons, piston rings and cylinder
walls have not yet become conditioned.
New engines reach the normal level of oil
consumption only after approximately
5000 km (3000 miles) driving.
Once a month, or each time you fill your
fuel tank, check the tire pressure using a
tire pressure gauge. Also check the tire
pressure of the spare tire.

Oil consumption: Max. 1.0 L per
1000 km (1 Qt. per 600 miles)
STARTING THE ENGINE
When judging the amount of oil consumption, note that the oil may become
diluted and make it difficult to accurately
judge the true oil level.
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
As an example, if a vehicle is used for repeated short trips, and consumes a normal amount of oil, the dipstick may not
show any drop in the oil level at all, even
after 1000 km (600 miles) or more of driving. This is because the oil is gradually becoming diluted with fuel or moisture, making it appear that the oil level has not
changed.
You should also be aware that the diluting ingredients evaporate out when the vehicle is subsequently driven at high speeds,
such as on an expressway, making it appear that oil is excessively consumed after high- speed driving.
NOTE Gearshift levers shown in the
above illustration are examples of 5speed manual transaxle (for gasoline engine model) and automatic transaxle.
Make sure the parking brake is set fully.
Manual transaxle – Shift into “N” (Neutral) and depress the clutch pedal all the
way to the floor. Hold the clutch pedal while starting the engine.
Automatic transaxle – If the gearshift
lever is not in “P” (Park) position, shift
into “P” (Park). (If you need to re- start
the engine while the vehicle is moving,
shift into “N”.)
NOTE Automatic transaxle vehicles have
a starter interlock device which is designed to keep the starter from operating if the transaxle is in any of the drive

STARTING A COLD ENGINE
(For Gasoline Engine Model)
With your foot off the accelerator pedal,
crank the engine by turning the ignition
key to “START”. Release the key when
the engine starts.
IMPORTANT
Stop turning the starter immediately after the engine has started or the starter
system can be damaged.
Do not crank the engine for more than
15 seconds at a time. If the engine doesn’t start on the first try, wait about 15
seconds before trying again.
If the engine does not start after 15 seconds of cranking, wait about 15 seconds,
then press down the accelerator pedal to
1/3 of its travel and try cranking the engine again. Release the key and accelerator pedal when the engine starts.
If the engine still does not start, try holding the accelerator pedal all the way to the
floor while cranking. This should clear the
engine if it is flooded.
STARTING A COLD ENGINE

IMPORTANT
The starter is allowed to crank the
engine up to 30 seconds. If the engine
failed to start, wait 15 seconds, then
restart cranking. Even if the third
trial failed, consult authorized Fiat
Dealership.
If the engine is started after long time
parking at extremely cold atmosphere
such as the ambient temperature is below –20°C, release ignition key from
start position and stop cranking after
confirming the engine speed increase
around 800 to 1000 rpm.
STARTING WARM ENGINE
Crank the engine by turning the ignition
key to “START”. Release the key when
the engine starts.
CAUTION WHEN STOPPING
THE ENGINE WITH
TURBOCHARGER
When stopping the engine after climbing or
high speed driving, let the engine idle for
about one minute or more (if it is not prohibited) to cool down the turbocharger and
engine oil. This is to prevent the engine oil
from over-deteriorating. Deteriorated engine oil will damage the bearings of the turbocharger.
RESTARTING D20AA DIESEL
ENGINE AFTER FUEL-EMPTY
STOP
The engine stops if the engine feels fuel
emptiness. To restart the engine, stop the
vehicle, hold the ignition key in “ON” position for 5 – 10 seconds to feed fuel, then
perform above engine starting procedure.
DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER
The diesel particulate filter filters off the
soot particles in the exhaust gas, so the
diesel particulate filter could get clogged
depending on the driving condition. The
diesel particulate filter is cleaned by the
regenerating function that combusts the
soot particles in the diesel particulate filter by raising the exhaust gas temperature
during driving or idling.
When a certain amount of soot particles
is accumulated in the diesel particulate filter, the diesel particulate filter will regenerate automatically to avoid clogging the
filter.
When the regeneration of the diesel particulate filter that started during driving
continues in idling, the engine revolutions
will increase by about 100 rpm and the radiator fan will operate. Therefore, you
may hear a little louder engine sounds (including the fan sounds) and/or the exhaust
gas temperature could be higher due to
combustion of the soot particles.

2WD
In this position, engine power is supplied
to the front axle only. Use this position
for normal driving (on dry, hard surfaces).
4WD AUTO
In this position, engine power is supplied
to the front and rear axles at normal
speed, providing greater traction than 2wheel drive. Use this position for driving
on paved roads or on slippery roads (icy,
snow-covered, muddy, etc.).
NOTE
80J009
In the AUTO mode, the 4WD controller
judges the driving conditions using signals
from sensors.
When slipping of the front wheels is detected, the electronically controlled coupling supplies optimum driving force to the
rear wheels. This function improves driving stability and running through performance on rough roads and stabilizes driving performance even on a snow covered
up- hill road or the like.
Avoid operating your vehicle in the
“4WD LOCK” on wet pavement as
much as possible. Operating your vehicle in the “4WD LOCK” on wet pavement may cause severe damage to the
drive train.
As the vehicle speed increases, the
“4WD LOCK” mode is automatically
canceled and the “4WD AUTO” mode
is selected.
When the ignition switch is turned to
the “OFF” position, the “4WD LOCK”
mode is canceled.
Also, during normal driving on paved
roads, torque distribution to the rear
wheels is reduced to achieve the nearly
front wheel drive condition, thereby fuel
consumption is improved.

When you operate your vehicle in the
4WD mode continuously, park the vehicle at a safe place and run the engine
idle. After some time, the “4WD AUTO” indicator light turns on again and
the driving mode returns to the “4WD

IMPORTANT
Never use the “4WD LOCK” mode
when driving on dry paved roads.
Avoid using the “4WD LOCK” mode
when driving on wet paved roads as

– When any wheel is in the air for such
reason as running off the road, do
not race it needlessly.
If the “4WD AUTO” and the “4WD

may be something wrong the 4WD system. Have the system inspected by an authorized Fiat Dealership.
BRAKING
The distance needed to bring any vehicle
to a halt increases with the speed of the
vehicle. The braking distance needed, for
example, at 60 km/h (37 mph) will be approximately 4 times greater than the braking distance needed at 30 km/h (19 mph).
Start to brake the vehicle when there is
plenty of distance between your vehicle
and the stopping point, and slow down
gradually.
IMPORTANT Unevenly worn tires can
cause problems in the operation of the
2WD/4WD switch. Be sure to rotate the
tires according to the maintenance schedule. Refer to “Tires” and “Maintenance

After driving through water or washing the underside of the vehicle, test
the brakes while driving at a slow

POWER-ASSISTED BRAKES
Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes. If
power assistance is lost due to a stalled
engine or other failures, the system is still
fully operational on reserve power and
you can bring the vehicle to a complete
stop by pressing the brake pedal once and
holding it down. The reserve power is
partly used up when you depress the
brake pedal and reduces each time the
pedal is pressed. Apply smooth and even
pressure to the pedal. Do not pump the
pedal.
WARNING
Even without reserve power
in the brake system, you can
still stop the vehicle by pressing the
brake pedal harder than normally required. However, the stopping distance may be longer.
Brake Assist System
When you slam the brakes on, the brake
assist system judges as an emergency stop
and provides more powerful braking for a
driver who cannot hold down the brake
pedal firmly.
NOTE If you quickly and forcefully depress the brakes, you may hear a clicking
sound in the brake pedal. This is normal
and indicates that the brake assist system
is activated properly.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM
(ABS)
(for versions/markets, where provided)
ABS will help you avoid skidding by electronically controlling braking pressure. It
will also help you maintain steering control when braking on slippery surfaces or
when braking hard.
The ABS works automatically, so you do
not need any special braking technique.
Just push the brake pedal down without
pumping. The ABS will operate whenever it senses that the wheels are locking up.
You may feel the brake pedal moves a little while the ABS is operating.
NOTE The ABS will not work if vehicle
speed is under about 6 km/h (4 mph).
149-168 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
WARNING
– On some types of loose
surfaces (such as gravel,
snow- covered roads, etc.) the stopping distance required for an ABSequipped vehicle may be slightly
greater than for a comparable vehicle with a conventional brake system. With a conventional brake system, skidding tires are able to
“plow” the gravel or snow layer,
shortening the stopping distance,
ABS minimizes this resistance effect.
Allow for extra stopping distance
when driving on loose surfaces.
– On regular paved roads, some drivers may be able to obtain slightly
shorter stopping distances with conventional brake systems than with
ABS.
– In both of the above conditions,
ABS will still offer the advantage of
helping you maintain directional
control. However, remember that
ABS will not compensate for bad
road or weather conditions or poor
driver judgment. Use good judgment and do not drive faster than
conditions will safely allow.

WARNING
If the ABS warning light ((1)

the worst case when braking on a slippery road or when hard braking even
on a dry paved road.
Ask your Fiat Dealership to inspect
the ABS system immediately. Drive
carefully, avoiding hard braking as
much as possible.
WARNING
If the ABS warning light ((1)
or (2)) on the instrument
panel comes on and stays on while

HOW THE ABS WORKS
A computer continuously monitors wheel
speed. The computer compares the
changes in wheel speed when braking. If
the wheels slow suddenly, indicating a
skidding situation, the computer will
change braking pressure several times
each second to prevent the wheels from
locking. When you start your vehicle or
when you accelerate after a hard stop, you
may hear a momentary motor or clicking
noise as the system resets or checks itself.
WARNING
The ABS may not work
properly if tires or wheels
other than those specified in the owner’s manual are used. This is because
the ABS works by comparing changes
in wheel speed. When replacing tires
or wheels, use only the size and type
specified in this owner’s manual.

oversteering. It also assists you in maintaining traction while accelerating on loose
or slippery road surfaces. It does this by
regulating the engine’s output, and by selectively applying the brakes. In addition,
ESP® helps to avoid skidding by controlling
braking pressure.
WARNING
The ESP® cannot enhance
the vehicle’s driving stability in all situations and does not control your vehicle’s entire braking system. The ESP® cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from
excessive speed in turns, or hydroplaning. Only a safe and attentive
driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities of an ESP® - equipped vehicle must never be used as a substitute for careful driving.
The ESP® has the following three systems:
STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM
The vehicle stability control system helps
provide integrated control of systems such
as anti- lock brakes, traction control, engine control, etc. This system automatically controls the brakes and engine to
help prevent the vehicle from skidding
when cornering on a slippery road surface
or when turning the steering wheel
abruptly.
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
The traction control system automatically helps prevent the spinning of wheels
when the vehicle is started or accelerated
on slippery road surfaces. The system operates only if it senses that some of the
wheels are spinning or beginning to lose
traction. When this happens, the system
operates the front or rear brakes and reduces engine power to limit wheel spin.
NOTE You may hear a clicking sound in
the engine compartment for a few seconds
when you start the engine or just after the
vehicle begins to move. This means that
the above systems are in the self-check
mode. This sound does not indicate a malfunction.

19-06-2009
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM
(ABS)
ABS will help you avoid skidding by electronically controlling braking pressure. It
will also help you maintain steering control when braking on slippery surfaces or
when braking hard. The ABS works automatically, so you do not have to use any
special braking technique. Just push the
brake pedal down without pumping. The
ABS will operate whenever it senses that
wheels are locking up. You may feel the
brake pedal pulsate while the ABS is operating.
(For more information on ABS, see “Braking” in the “OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE” section.)
NOTE If the ABS system is activated, you
may hear a clunking noise and/ or feel pulsating in the brake pedal. This is normal
and indicates that the brake fluid pressure
is being controlled properly.

RUNNING-IN
IMPORTANT The future performance
and reliability of the engine depends on the
care and restraint exercised during its early life. It is especially important to observe
the following precautions during the initial
960 km (600 miles) of vehicle operation.
After starting, do not race the engine.
Warm it up gradually.
Avoid prolonged vehicle operation at a
constant speed. Moving parts will break
in better if you vary your speed.
Start off from a stop slowly. Avoid full
throttle starts.
Avoid hard braking, especially during
the first 320 km (200 miles) of driving.
Do not drive slowly with the transaxle
in a high gear.
Drive the vehicle at moderate engine
speeds.
Do not tow a trailer during the first
960 km (600 miles) of vehicle operation.

CATALYTIC CONVERTER
(for versions/markets, where provided)
The purpose of the catalytic converter is
to minimize the amount of harmful pollutants in your vehicle’s exhaust. Use of
leaded fuel in vehicles equipped with catalytic converters is prohibited, because
lead deactivates the pollutant- reducing
components of the catalyst system.
The converter is designed to last the life
of the vehicle under normal usage and
when unleaded fuel is used. No special
maintenance is required on the converter. However, it is very important to keep
the engine properly tuned. Engine misfiring, which can result from an improperly
tuned engine, may cause overheating of
the catalyst. This may result in permanent
heat damage to the catalyst and other vehicle components.
68KM085
IMPORTANT To minimize the possibility of catalyst or other vehicle damage:
Maintain the engine in the proper operating condition.
In the event of an engine malfunction,
particularly one involving engine misfire
or other apparent loss of performance,
have the vehicle serviced promptly.
Do not turn off the engine or interrupt
the ignition when the transaxle is in
gear and the vehicle is in motion.
Do not try to start the engine by pushing or towing the vehicle, or coasting
down a hill.
Do not idle the engine with any spark
plug wires disconnected or removed,
such as during diagnostic testing.

IMPROVING FUEL
ECONOMY
The following instructions will help you
improve fuel economy.
Avoid excessive idling
54G584S
Do not idle the vehicle for prolonged
periods if idling seems rough or there
are other malfunctions.
Do not allow the fuel tank to get near
the empty level.
WARNING
Be careful where you park
and drive; the catalytic converter and other exhaust components
can get very hot. As with any vehicle,
do not park or operate this vehicle
in areas where combustible materials
such as dry grass or leaves can come
in contact with a hot exhaust system.
If you are to wait for more than a minute
while you are parked, stop the engine and
start it again later. When warming up a
cold engine, allow the engine to idle until
the temperature gauge pointer comes up
to the “C” position (if the idling is not prohibited). In this position, the engine is sufficiently warm for starting off.
Avoid “fast” starts
Fast starts away from lights or stop signs
will consume fuel unnecessarily and shorten engine life. Start off slowly.
Avoid unnecessary stops
Avoid unnecessary deceleration and stopping. Try to maintain a slow, steady speed
whenever possible. Slowing down and
then accelerating again uses more fuel.
Keep a steady cruising speed
Keep as constant a speed as road and traffic conditions will permit.
168
60A183S
Keep the air cleaner clean
If the air cleaner is clogged with dust, there
will be greater intake resistance, resulting in decreased power output and increased fuel consumption.
Keep weight to a minimum
The heavier the load, the more fuel the
vehicle consumes. Take out any luggage or
cargo when it is not necessary.
Keep tire pressures correct
Underinflation of the tires can waste fuel
due to increased running resistance of the
tires. Keep your tires inflated to the correct pressure shown on the label on the
driver’s side door or the driver’s door
lock pillar.

HIGHWAY DRIVING
DRIVING ON HILLS
When driving at high-speed, pay attention
to the following:
❒ When climbing steep hills, the vehicle
may begin to slow down and show a
lack of power. If this happens, you
should shift to a lower gear so that the
engine will again be operating in its normal power range. Shift rapidly to prevent the vehicle from losing momentum.
❒ Stopping distance progressively increases with vehicle speed. Apply the
brakes far enough ahead of the stopping
point to allow for the extra stopping
distance.
❒ On rainy days, “Aquaplaning” can occur.
“Aquaplaning” is the loss of direct contact between the road surface and the
vehicle’s tires due to a water film forming between them. Steering or braking
the vehicle while “Aquaplaning” can be
very difficult, and loss of control can occur. Keep speed down when the road
surface is wet.
❒ At high speeds, the vehicle may be affected by side winds. Therefore, reduce
speed and be prepared for unexpected buffeting, which can occur at the exits of tunnels, when passing by a cut of
a hill, or when being overtaken by large
vehicles, etc.
❒ When driving down a hill, the engine
should be used for braking by shifting
into a lower gear. (Do this with EITHER
an automatic or manual transaxle.)
WARNING
Try not to hold the brake
pedal down too long or too
often while going down a steep or
long hill. This could cause the brakes
to overheat, resulting in reduced
braking efficiency. Failure to take this
precaution could result in loss of vehicle control.

DRIVING ON SLIPPERY
ROADS
Under wet road conditions you should
drive at a lower speed than on dry roads
due to possible slippage of tires during
braking. When driving on icy, snow-covered, or muddy roads, reduce your speed
and avoid sudden acceleration, abrupt
braking, or sharp steering movements.
79J029
IMPORTANT When descending a down
hill, NEVER turn the ignition key to the
“OFF” position. Emission control system
damage may result.
60G089S
FOR 4-WHEEL DRIVE (4WD)
MODELS
Your 4WD is designed to get better traction on slippery roads than 2-wheel drive
models. However, your 4WD will not
have as much traction in deep snow, mud
or sand as multipurpose 4WD vehicles.
You should not attempt to drive your
4WD in deep snow, mud or sand. 4WD
models are not sport/utility vehicles, and
are not designed for off-road use.
SNOW CHAINS
Snow chains should only be used if they
are needed to increase traction or are required by law. Make sure that the chains
you use are the correct size for your vehicle’s tires. Also make sure that there is
enough clearance between the fenders
and the chains as installed on the tires.
Install the chains on the front tires tightly, according to the chain manufacturer’s
instructions. Retighten the chains after driving about 1. 0 km (1/ 2 mile) if necessary.
With the chains installed, drive slowly.
IMPORTANT
❒ If you hear the chains hitting against the
vehicle body while driving, stop and
tighten them.
❒ If you vehicle is equipped with full wheel
caps, remove the wheel caps before installing the chains or the wheel caps can
be damaged by the chain bands.

IF YOUR VEHICLE GETS STUCK
If your vehicle gets stuck in snow, mud, or
sand, follow the directions below:
❒ Shift the transaxle back and forth between first gear and reverse. This will
create a rocking motion which may give
you enough momentum to free the vehicle. Press gently on the accelerator to
keep wheel spin to a minimum.
Remove your foot from the accelerator while shifting.
Do not race the engine. Excessive
wheel spin will cause the tires to dig
deeper, making it more difficult to free
the vehicle.
❒ If your vehicle remains stuck after a few
minutes of rocking, get another vehicle
to pull you out.
WARNING
Do not allow anyone to
stand near the vehicle when
you are rocking it, and do not spin the
wheels faster than an indicated
40 km/h (25 mph) on the speedometer. Personal injury and/ or vehicle
damage may result from spinning the
wheels too fast.
172
54G638S
IMPORTANT Do not continue rocking
the vehicle for more than a few minutes.
Prolonged rocking can cause engine overheating or transaxle damage.
WARNING
In addition to following the
driving tips in this section, it
is important to observe the following
precautions.
– Make sure your tires are in good
condition and always maintain the
specified tire pressure. Refer to
“Tires” in the “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE” section for details.
WARNING
– Do not use tires other than
those specified by Fiat.
Never use different sizes or types of
tires on the front and rear wheels. For
information regarding the specified
tires, refer to the Tire Information Label located on the driver’s door lock
pillar.
– Never use oversized tires or special
shock absorbers and springs to raise
(jack up) your vehicle. This will
change the handling characteristics.
Oversized tires may also rub against
the fender over bumps, causing vehicle damage or tire failure.
– After driving through water, test the
brakes while driving at a slow speed
to see if they have maintained their
normal effectiveness. If the brakes are
less effective than normal, dry them
by repeatedly applying the brakes
while driving slowly until the brakes
have regained their normal effectiveness.

VEHICLE LOADING
Your vehicle was designed for specific
weight capacities. The weight capacities of
your vehicle are indicated by the Gross
Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and the
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR, front
and rear). The GVWR and GAWR (front
and rear) are listed in the “SPECIFICATIONS” section.
GVWR – Maximum permissible overall
weight of the fully loaded vehicle (including all the occupants, accessories and cargo plus the trailer nose weight if towing
a trailer).
GAWR – (Front and Rear) Maximum permissible weight on an individual axle.
Actual weight of the loaded vehicle and actual loads at the front and rear axles can
only be determined by weighing the vehicle. Compare these weights to the GVWR
and GAWR (front and rear). If the gross
vehicle weight or the load on either axle
exceeds these ratings, you must remove
enough weight to bring the load down to
the rated capacity.
174
Pagina 174
WARNING
Never overload your vehicle.
The gross vehicle weight
(sum of the weights of the vehicle, all
the occupants, accessories, cargo plus
trailer nose weight if towing a trailer)
must never exceed the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR). In addition,
never distribute a load so that the
weight on either the front or rear axle
exceeds the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
WARNING
Always distribute cargo
evenly. To avoid personal injury or damage to your vehicle, always secure cargo to prevent it from
shifting if the vehicle moves suddenly. Place heavier objects on the floor
and as far forward in the cargo area
as possible. Never pile cargo higher
than the top of the seat backs.
TRAILER TOWING
Your Fiat was originally designed to carry people and a normal amount of cargo,
not to tow a trailer. Fiat does not recommend you use your vehicle to tow a
trailer if there is not any local regulation
about towing capacity permitted (for example, registered or statutory towing capacity). Towing a trailer can adversely affect handling, durability, and fuel economy.
Some countries have regulations which
specifically allow trailer towing up to a
specified maximum trailer weight (registered or statutory towing capacity,
whichever is smaller); vehicles sold in
these countries can be used to tow a light
trailer, provided the trailer does not exceed the maximum trailer weight specified
in the country’s regulations.
If you use your Fiat to tow a trailer, you
should always observe the requirements
and recommendations in this section. If
you intend to tow a trailer, it is essential
to select a trailer and trailer towing equipment which are compatible. A reputable
towing specialist can help you.
173-182 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
IMPORTANT Trailer towing puts additional stress on the engine, drive train, and
brakes of your vehicle. Never tow a trailer during the first 960 km (600 miles) of
vehicle operation.
IMPORTANT For Automatic Transaxle
vehicles, do not use “D” range when towing on a steep hill. Towing in “D” range
when driving on a steep hill can cause automatic transaxle fluid overheating without warning, which can result in transaxle
damage.

Pagina 175
SAFETY CHAINS
TRAILER LIGHTS
Always attach safety chains between your
vehicle and trailer. Cross safety chains under the nose of the trailer so that the nose
will not drop to the road if the trailer becomes separated from the tow bar. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation
for attaching safety chains. Always leave
just enough slack to permit full turning.
Never allow safety chains to drag on the
road.
Make sure your trailer is equipped with
lights which meet local requirements. Always check for the proper operation of all
trailer lights before you start to tow.
TOW BARS
Only use a tow bar that is designed to attach to the chassis of your vehicle, and
a hitch that is designed to bolt to this
bracket.
WARNING
Never use a tow bar which
attaches to the axle or the
bumper of your vehicle.
WARNING
Never attach safety chains
to the bumper of your vehicle. Secure connections so that they
can’t come loose.
WARNING
Never connect trailer lights
directly into your vehicle’s
electrical system, or electrical system
damage may occur.
BRAKES
WARNING
If trailer brakes are used, you
should follow all instructions
provided by the manufacturer. Never connect to the brake system of
your vehicle and never take an electrical supply directly from the wiring
harness.

TIRES
WARNING
When towing a trailer, it is
very important for your vehicle and trailer to have properly inflated tires. Your vehicle’s tires should
be inflated to the pressures listed on
your vehicles Tire Information label.
If laden pressures are listed on the label, the tires should be inflated to the
laden pressures. Inflate trailer tires
according to the specifications provided by the trailer manufacturer.
Pagina 176
MIRRORS
Check to see if your vehicle’s mirrors
meet local requirements for mirrors used
on towing vehicles. If they do not, you
must install the required mirrors before
you tow.
VEHICLE/TRAILER LOADING
To load your vehicle and trailer properly, you must know how to measure gross
trailer weight and trailer nose weight.
Gross Trailer Weight is the weight of the
trailer plus all the cargo in it. You can measure gross trailer weight by putting the fully loaded trailer on a vehicle scale.
Nose Weight is the downward force exerted on the tow bar by the trailer coupler, with the trailer fully loaded and the
coupler at its normal towing height. This
weight can be measured using a bathroom
scales.
The weight of your loaded trailer (Gross
Trailer Weight) should never exceed the
“Towing capacity”.
176
Distribute cargo in your trailer so that
nose weight is about 10% of gross trailer
weight, but does not exceed “Maximum
vertical load on trailer hitch point”. You
should measure gross trailer weight and
nose weight before towing to make sure
that your load is properly distributed.
WARNING
Improper weight distribution
of your trailer may result in
poor vehicle handling and swaying of
the trailer. Always make sure that
trailer nose weight is about 10% of
gross trailer weight, but does not exceed “Maximum vertical load on
trailer hitch point”. Also make sure
that the cargo is properly secured.
Failure to observe this requirement
may result in an accident.
173-182 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
WARNING
Never overload your trailer
or your vehicle. Gross trailer weight must never exceed the
“Towing capacity”. Gross vehicle
weight (sum of the weights of the vehicle, all the occupants, accessories
including tow bars and a trailer hitch,
cargo and trailer nose weight) must
never exceed the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR) listed in the
“SPECIFICATIONS” section.
ADDITIONAL TRAILER
TOWING WARNINGS
WARNING
Connect trailer lights and
hook up safety chains every
time you tow.
IMPORTANT Because towing a trailer
puts additional stress on your vehicle,
more frequent maintenance will be required than under normal driving conditions. Follow the schedule for “Maintenance Recommended under Severe Driving Conditions”.
10:49
Pagina 177
WARNING
Your vehicle will handle differently when towing a trailer. For your safety and the safety of
others, you should observe the following precautions:
– Practice turning, stopping, and reversing before you begin towing in
traffic. Do not tow in traffic until you
are confident that you can handle the
vehicle and trailer safely.
– Never exceed towing speed limits or
80 km/h (50 mph), whichever is lower.
– Never drive at a speed that causes
shaking or swaying of the trailer. If
you notice even the slightest sign of
shaking or swaying, slow down.
– When roads are wet, slippery or
rough, drive at a slower speed than
you would on dry, smooth roads.
Failure to slow down when road conditions are bad can result in loss of
control.
– Always have someone guide you
when reversing.
– Allow adequate stopping distance.
Stopping distance is increased when
you tow a trailer. For each 16 km/h
(10 mph) of speed, allow at least one
vehicle and trailer length between
you and the vehicle ahead. Follow at
a greater distance if roads are wet or
slippery.
WARNING
– If the trailer has over-run
brakes, apply the brakes
gradually to avoid snatching caused
by the trailer wheels locking.
– Slow down before corners and
maintain a steady speed while cornering. Deceleration or acceleration
while cornering can result in loss of
control. Remember that a larger than
normal turning radius is needed because the trailer wheels will be closer than vehicle wheels to the inside of
the turn.
– Avoid sudden acceleration and
stopping of the vehicle. Do not make
quick maneuvers unless they are necessary.
– Slow down in cross winds and be
prepared for gusts of wind from large
passing vehicles.
– Be careful when overtaking other
vehicles. Be sure to allow enough
room for your trailer before you
change lanes, and signal well in advance.
– Slow down and shift into a lower
gear before you reach long or steep
downhill grades. It is hazardous to attempt downshifting while you are descending a hill.

WARNING
You should take extreme
care when working on your
vehicle to prevent accidental injury.
Here are a few precautions that you
should be especially careful to observe:
– To prevent damage or unintended
activation of the air bag system or
seat belt pretensioner system, be sure
the battery is disconnected and the
ignition switch has been in the
“LOCK” position for at least 90 seconds before performing any electrical
service work on your Fiat. Do not
touch air bag system components,
seat belt pretensioner system components or wires.
The wires are wrapped with yellow
tape or yellow tubing, and the couplers are yellow for easy identification.
– Do not leave the engine running in
garages or other confined areas.
184
Pagina 184
WARNING
– When the engine is running, keep hands, clothing,
tools, and other objects away from
the fan and drive belt. Even though
the fan may not be moving, it can automatically turn on without warning.
– When it is necessary to do service
work with the engine running, make
sure that the parking brake is set fully and the transaxle is in Neutral (for
manual transaxle vehicles) or Park
(for automatic transaxle vehicles).
– Do not touch ignition wires or other ignition system parts when starting
the engine or when the engine is running, or you could receive an electric
shock.
– Be careful not to touch a hot engine, exhaust manifold and pipes,
muffler, radiator and water hoses.
– Do not allow smoking, sparks, or
flames around gasoline or the battery. Flammable fumes are present.
– Do not get under your vehicle if it is
supported only with the portable jack
provided in your vehicle.
WARNING
– Be careful not to cause accidental short circuits between the positive and negative battery terminals.
– Keep used oil, coolant, and other
fluids away from children and pets.
Dispose of used fluids properly; never pour them on the ground, into sewers, etc.

OIL LEVEL CHECK
1. MIN
REFILLING
It is important to keep the engine oil at the
correct level for proper lubrication of
your vehicle’s engine. Check the oil level
with the vehicle on a level surface. The oil
level indication may be inaccurate if the
vehicle is on a slope. The oil level should
be checked either before starting the engine or at least 5 minutes after stopping
the engine.
2. MAX
Remove the oil filler cap and pour oil
slowly through the filler hole to bring the
oil level to the upper limit on the dipstick.
Be careful not to overfill. Too much oil is
almost as bad as too little oil. After refilling, start the engine and allow it to idle for
about a minute. Stop the engine, wait
about 5 minutes and check the oil level
again.
The handle of the engine oil dipstick is colored yellow for easy identification. Pull out
the oil dipstick, wipe oil off with a clean
cloth, insert the dipstick all the way into
the engine, then remove it again. The oil
on the stick should be between the upper
and lower limits shown on the stick. If the
oil level indication is near the lower limit,
add enough oil to raise the level to the upper limit.

❒ Remove the oil filler cap.
❒ Place a drain pan under the drain plug.
❒ Using a wrench, remove the drain plug
and drain out the engine oil.
WARNING
The engine oil temperature
may be high enough to burn
your fingers when the drain plug is
loosened. Wait until the drain plug is
cool enough to touch with your bare
hands.

WARNING
New and used oil can be
hazardous.
Children and pets may be harmed by
swallowing new or used oil. Keep new
and used oil and used oil filters away
from children and pets.
Repeated, prolonged contact with
used engine oil may cause skin cancer.
Brief contact with used oil may irritate skin.
WARNING
To minimize your exposure
to used oil, wear a longsleeve shirt and moisture- proof
gloves (such as dishwashing gloves)
when changing oil. If oil contacts your
skin, wash thoroughly with soap and
water.
Launder any clothing or rags if wet
with oil.
Recycle or properly dispose of used
oil and filters.
❒ Reinstall the drain plug and gasket.
Tighten the plug with a wrench to the
specified torque.
NOTE (For Diesel Engine Model)
Whenever the engine oil is changed, the
monitoring system to find the next oil
change stage must be reset whether the
oil pressure light blinks or not. For details
on how to reset the system, ask your Fiat Dealership.

mixture concentration.
Failure to use the proper coolant can damage your cooling system. Your authorized
Fiat Dealership can help you select the
proper coolant.
❒ Make sure that the proper mix is 50/50
coolant to distilled water and in no case
higher than 70/30. Concentrations
greater than 70/30 coolant to distilled
water will cause overheating conditions.
❒ Do not use straight coolant nor plain
water.
❒ Do not add extra inhibitors or additives. They may not be compatible with
your cooling system.
❒ Do not mix different types of base
coolants. Doing so may result in accelerated seal wear and/ or the possibility of severe overheating and extensive
engine/automatic transaxle damage.

The fuses are also located under the driver’s side of the dashboard. Remove the
fuse box cover by pulling it off. The amperage of each fuse is shown on the top
of the fuse box cover.
WARNING
Always be sure to replace a
blown fuse with a fuse of the
correct amperage. Never use a substitute such as aluminum foil or wire
to replace a blown fuse. If you replace a fuse and the new one blows
in a short period of time, you may
have a major electrical problem.
Have your vehicle inspected immediately by your Fiat Dealership.
WARNING
– Light bulbs can be hot
enough to burn your finger
right after being turned off. This is
true especially for halogen headlight
bulbs. Replace the bulbs after they
become cool enough.
– The headlight bulbs are filled with
pressurized halogen gas. They can
burst and injure you if they are hit or
dropped. Handle them carefully.
IMPORTANT The oils from your skin may
cause a halogen bulb to overheat and burst
when the lights are on. Grasp a new bulb
with a clean cloth.

TOWING
2-WHEEL DRIVE (2WD)
MANUAL TRANSAXLE
If you need to have your vehicle towed,
contact a professional service. Your dealer can provide you with detailed towing
instructions.
Manual transaxle vehicles may be towed
using either of the following methods.
❒ From the front, with the front wheels
lifted and the rear wheels on the
ground. Before towing, make sure that
the parking brake is released.
❒ From the rear, with the rear wheels lifted and the front wheels on the ground,
provided the steering and drivetrain are
in operational condition. Before towing, make sure that transaxle is in neutral, the steering wheel is unlocked (the
ignition key should be in the “ACC” position), and the steering wheel is secured with a clamping device designed
for towing service.
IMPORTANT The steering column is not
strong enough to withstand shocks transmitted from the front wheels during towing. Always unlock the steering wheel before towing.
IMPORTANT To help avoid damage to
your vehicle during towing, proper equipment and towing procedures must be
used.
2- WHEEL DRIVE (2WD)
AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE
Automatic transaxle vehicles may be
towed using either of the following methods.
❒ From the front, with the front wheels
lifted and the rear wheels on the
ground. Before towing, make sure that
the parking brake is released.
❒ From the rear, with the rear wheels lifted and a dolly under the front wheels.
4-WHEEL DRIVE (4WD)
Your vehicle should be towed under one
of the following conditions:
❒ With all four wheels on a flat-bed truck.
❒ With the front or rear wheels lifted and
a dolly under the other wheels.
❒ If you can shift the 2WD/4WD switch
to the “2WD” mode, and if the steering and drive train are in good condition and the engine can be started, the
vehicle may also be towed according to
the instructions in the “Towing Your
Vehicle (recreational towing)” section.
IMPORTANT Towing your vehicle with
front and/or rear wheels on the ground
can result in damage to the automatic
transaxle and/or the 4WD drive system.
IMPORTANT Towing your vehicle with
the front wheels on the ground can result
in damage to the automatic transaxle.

IF THE STARTER DOES
NOT OPERATE
IF THE ENGINE IS
FLOODED
IF THE ENGINE
OVERHEATS
❒ Try turning the ignition switch to the
“START” position with the headlights
turned on to determine the battery
condition. If the headlights go excessively dim or go off, it usually means
that either the battery is flat or the battery terminal contact is poor. Recharge
the battery or correct battery terminal
contact as necessary.
If the engine is flooded with gasoline, it
may be hard to start. If this happens, press
the accelerator pedal all the way to the
floor and hold it there while cranking the
engine. (Do not operate the starter motor for more than 15 seconds).
The engine could overheat temporarily
under severe driving conditions. If the engine coolant temperature gauge indicates
overheating during driving:
❒ If the headlights remain bright, check
the fuses. If the reason for failure of the
starter is not obvious, there may be a
major electrical problem. Have the vehicle inspected by your authorized
Fiat Dealership.
❒ Turn off the air conditioner, if equipped.
❒ Take the vehicle to a safe place and
park.
❒ Let the engine run at the normal idle
speed for a few minutes until the indicator is within the normal, acceptable
temperature range between “H” and
“C”.
WARNING
If you see or hear escaping
steam, stop the vehicle in a
safe place and immediately turn off
the engine to let it cool. Do not open
the hood when steam is present.
When the steam can no longer be
seen or heard, open the hood to see
if the coolant is still boiling. If it is, you
must wait until it stops boiling before
you proceed.

Pagina 237
If the temperature indication does not
come down to within the normal, acceptable range:
❒ Turn off the engine and check that the
water pump belt and pulleys are not
damaged or slipping. If any abnormality is found, correct it.
❒ Check the coolant level in the reservoir. If it is found to be lower than the
“LOW” line, look for leaks at the radiator, water pump, and radiator and
heater hoses. If you locate any leaks
that may have caused the overheating,
do not run the engine until these problems have been corrected.
79J007
❒ If you do not find a leak, carefully add
coolant to the reservoir and then the
radiator, if necessary. (Refer to “Engine
Coolant” in the “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE” section.)
WARNING
– It is hazardous to remove
the radiator cap when the
water temperature is high, because
scalding fluid and steam may be
blown out under pressure. The cap
should only be taken off when the
coolant temperature has lowered.
– To help prevent personal injury,
keep hands, tools and clothing away
from the engine cooling fan and airconditioner fan (if equipped). These
electric fans can automatically turn
on without warning.

CORROSION
PREVENTION
It is important to take good care of your
vehicle to protect it from corrosion. Listed below are instructions for how to
maintain your vehicle to prevent corrosion. Please read and follow these instructions carefully.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT CORROSION
Common causes of corrosion
❒ Accumulation of road salt, dirt, moisture, or chemicals in hard to reach areas of the vehicle underbody or frame.
❒ Chipping, scratches and any damage to
treated or painted metal surfaces resulting from minor accidents or abrasion by stones and gravel.
240
Pagina 240
Environmental conditions which
accelerate corrosion
HOW TO HELP PREVENT
CORROSION
❒ Road salt, dust control chemicals, sea
air or industrial pollution will all accelerate the corrosion of metal.
Wash your vehicle frequently
❒ High humidity will increase the rate
of corrosion particularly when the
temperature range is just above the
freezing point.
❒ Moisture in certain areas of a vehicle for an extended period of time
may promote corrosion even though
other body sections may be completely dry.
❒ High temperatures will cause an accelerated rate of corrosion to parts
of the vehicle which are not well ventilated to permit quick drying.
This information illustrates the necessity of keeping your vehicle (particularly the underbody) as clean and dry as
possible. It is equally important to repair
any damage to the paint or protective
coatings as soon as possible.
The best way to preserve the finish on
your vehicle and to help avoid corrosion
is to keep it clean with frequent washing.
Wash your vehicle at least once during the
winter and once immediately after the
winter. Keep your vehicle, particularly the
underside, as clean and dry as possible.
If you frequently drive on salted roads,
your vehicle should be washed at least
once a month during the winter. If you live
near the ocean, your vehicle should be
washed at least once a month throughout
the year.
For washing instructions, refer to the “Vehicle Cleaning” section.
239-244 SEDICI LUM FL GB 1E
19-06-2009
Remove foreign material deposits
Foreign material such as salts, chemicals,
road oil or tar, tree sap, bird droppings
and industrial fall-out may damage the finish of your vehicle if it is left on painted
surfaces. Remove these types of deposits
as quickly as possible. If these deposits are
difficult to wash off, an additional cleaner
may be required. Be sure that any cleaner you use is not harmful to painted surfaces and is specifically intended for your
purposes. Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using these special cleaners.
Repair finish damage
Carefully examine your vehicle for damage to the painted surfaces. Should you
find any chips or scratches in the paint,
touch them up immediately to prevent
corrosion from starting. If the chips or
scratches have gone through to the bare
metal, have a qualified body shop make the
repair.
11:07
Pagina 241
Keep passenger and luggage
compartments clean
Store your vehicle in a dry,
well- ventilated area
Moisture, dirt or mud can accumulate under the floor mats and may cause corrosion.
Do not park your vehicle in a damp, poorly ventilated area. If you often wash your
vehicle in the garage or if you frequently
drive it in when wet, your garage may be
damp. The high humidity in the garage may
cause or accelerate corrosion. A wet vehicle may corrode even in a heated garage
if the ventilation is poor.
Occasionally, check under these mats to
ensure that this area is clean and dry. More
frequent checks are necessary if the vehicle is used off road or in wet weather.
Certain cargos such as chemicals, fertilizers, cleaners, salts, etc. are extremely corrosive by nature. These products should
be transported in sealed containers. If a
spill or leak does occur, clean and dry the
area immediately.
WARNING
Do not apply additional undercoating or rust preventive
coating on or around exhaust system
components such as the catalytic
converter, exhaust pipes, etc. A fire
could be started if the undercoating
substance becomes overheated.

VEHICLE CLEANING
Vinyl floor mats
Ordinary dirt can be removed from vinyl
with water or mild soap. Use a brush to
help loosen dirt. After the dirt is loosened,
rinse the mat thoroughly with water and
dry it in the shade.
WARNING
When cleaning the interior
or exterior of the vehicle,
NEVER USE flammable solvents such
as lacquer thinners, gasoline, benzene
or cleaning materials such as bleaches or strong household detergents.
The materials could cause personal
injury or damage to the vehicle.
Carpets
76G044A
Fabric upholstery
CLEANING THE INTERIOR
Vinyl upholstery
Prepare a solution of soap or mild detergent mixed with warm water. Apply the
solution to the vinyl with a sponge or soft
cloth and let it soak for a few minutes to
loosen dirt.
Rub the surface with a clean, damp cloth
to remove dirt and the soap solution. If
some dirt still remains on the surface, repeat this procedure.
242
Remove loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner. Using a mild soap solution, rub stained
areas with a clean damp cloth. To remove
soap, rub the areas again with a cloth
dampened with water. Repeat this until
the stain is removed, or use a commercial
fabric cleaner for tougher stains. If you use
a fabric cleaner, carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions and precautions.
Seat belts
Clean seat belts with a mild soap and water. Do not use bleach or dye on the belts.
They may weaken the fabric in the belts.
Remove dirt and soil as much as possible
with a vacuum cleaner. Using a mild soap
solution, rub stained areas with a clean
damp cloth. To remove soap, rub the areas again with a cloth dampened with water. Repeat this until the stain is removed,
or use a commercial carpet cleaner for
tougher stains. If you use a carpet cleaner, carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions and precautions.
CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
IMPORTANT It is important that your vehicle be kept clean and free from dirt. Failure to keep your vehicle clean may result
in fading of the paint or corrosion to various parts of the vehicle body.

When washing the vehicle, park it where
direct sunlight does not fall on it and follow the instructions below:
❒ Flush the underside of body and wheel
housings with pressurized water to remove mud and debris. Use plenty of water.

WASHING
WARNING
– Never attempt to wash
and wax your vehicle with
the engine running.
– When cleaning the underside of the
body and fender, where there may
be sharp-edged parts, you should
wear gloves and a long sleeved shirt
to protect your hands and arms from
being cut.
– After washing your vehicle, carefully test the brakes before driving to
make sure they have maintained
their normal effectiveness.
IMPORTANT
When washing the vehicle:
❒ Avoid directing steam or hot water of
more than 80°C (176°F) on plastic
parts.
❒ To avoid damaging engine components,
do not use pressurized water in the engine compartment.
❒ Do not pour the water on the battery.
And wipe off the water which remains
on the battery. The water entering inside the battery possibly causes fluid
leakage.
❒ Rinse the body to loosen the dirt. Remove dirt and mud from the body exterior with running water. You may use
a soft sponge or brush. Do not use hard
materials which can scratch the paint
or plastic. Remember that the headlight
covers or lenses are made of plastic in
many cases.
IMPORTANT To avoid damage to the
paint or plastic surface, do not wipe the
dirt off without ample water. Be sure to
follow above procedure.
❒ Wash the entire exterior with a mild
detergent or vehicle wash soap using
a sponge or soft cloth. The sponge or
cloth should be frequently soaked in the
soap solution.
IMPORTANT When using a commercial
vehicle wash product, observe the cautions specified by the manufacturer. Never use strong household detergents or
soaps.

❒ Once the dirt has been completely removed, rinse off the detergent with
running water.
❒ After rinsing, wipe off the vehicle body
with a wet chamois or cloth and allow
it to dry in the shade.
❒ Check carefully for damage to painted
surfaces. If there is any damage, “touchup” the damage following the procedure below:
WAXING
– Stir the paint and “touch- up” the
damaged spots lightly using a small
brush.
After washing the vehicle, waxing and polishing are recommended to further protect and beautify the paint.
– Allow the paint to dry completely.
Only use waxes and polishes of good quality.
IMPORTANT If you use an automatic vehicle wash, make sure that your vehicle’s
body parts, such as spoilers, can not be
damaged. If you are in doubt, consult the
vehicle wash operator for advice.
244

PROVISIONS FOR THE PROCESSING OF A VEHICLE
AT THE END OF ITS LIFE-CYCLE
For years now Fiat has been developing its global commitment towards the safeguarding and protection of the Environment through
the continuous improvement of its production processes and the making of increasingly more “eco friendly” products. With a view
to guaranteeing the best possible service to clients in full observance of environmental standards and in response to the obligations
imposed by European Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles, Fiat offers its clients the possibility to hand in their vehicle* at
the end of its life span without additional costs.
The European Directive, in fact, provides for the take-back of the vehicle without the last holder or owner of the same incurring
expenses due to the fact that the market value of the vehicle is zero or negative. In particular, in almost all of the countries of the
European Union, up until 1st January 2007, take-back of the vehicle free of charge only applies to vehicles registered from 1 July 2002
on, while, from 2007 on, take-back will be carried out free of charge, independently of the year of registration, provided that the
vehicle still contains all its essential component parts (especially engine and body) and is free from additional waste materials.
Our contracted network of authorised treatment facilities has been carefully selected in order to provide a quality service to our
customers by de-polluting and recycling “End of Life Vehicles” to approved environmental standards. To find out the location of your
nearest authorised treatment facility, offering free of charge take-back, simply contact one of our dealers or refer to the Fiat web
site or call the toll free number 00800 3428 0000.
* Passenger transportation vehicles to seat a max. of nine persons, having a total admissible weight of 3.5 t
