    Total cost out of my pocket was $1500. 50% of the difference in msrp between the 2011 and 2013.

    Why not? Do you know what the definition of a "lemon" is?

    They know no bounds, brand wise.

    Where do you think the money came from? :) It's not like his settlement allowed for cash back, and walk away. It most likely meant picking something new from stock and paying a diff in price.

    I figured they had to buy it back.

    If I had to sue a company or go to arbitration because they wouldn't take care of me as a customer, I probably wouldn't be back.

    Good for you.

    Every time one of these cases goes 'all the way', as provided for under Federal law, it sends a message to auto manufacturers that better quality control pays for itself in the long run.

    ...and I wonder how long before the first Fiat 500 lemon law case... Because you KNOW it's going to happen.

    The ONLY car sold in the USA that was worse than Fiat was the Yugo, IMHO.

    Isnt the 500 the same as the Mini? I was under the impression those were pretty good cars. Nothing to base that on other then I hear people say good things about the Mini.

    Yes, I was given $46,300 towards the purchase of a new Ford vehicle.

    I could have asked for cash back, but they would have deducted for mileage, and I could have lost over $9,000, which would have left me with very little cash after paying off my existing loan.

    This was the best choice, and aside for a minor issue with my sunroof, this one seems good so far.

    Different cars I believe.

    And it's not like the Mini has a sterling reliability record. It is usually at the bottom of the quality rankings for new cars.

    Fiat has a good reputation in Europe but we'll see (or the buyers will see - I'm not buying one). This is curious since I believe Fiat owns Alfa Romeo, which is known as a POS.
