I have a 2007 fiat panda diesel. There is a major design fault with the air filter box that could result in rain water getting into the cylinders and ruining the engine which would write the car off.
This is a well known problem as the link shows. It's clearly a fault of the manufacturer Fiat and damage directly is a result of this manufacturer design fault not the ware and tear or fault of the owner.
My car is second hand and well beyond warranty, but this is a well documented design fault by fiat.
Should my engine be damaged by this defect would I have any rights to claim against Fiat?
I mean recently Vauxhall Zafira owners have been refunded after a manufacturer defect caused fires to start in the heating system. Refunds have been granted on cars as old as 2005.
Car design fault causing severe and expensive engine damage. What my rights? Watch
