FIAT 500 4 year / 50,000 mile Warranty Explained.

THE FCA GROUP WARRANTY ADVANTAGE…

FIAT 500 Warranties are another fine example of quality built to last — backed by protection that puts its money where its mouth is — like Roadside Assistance for the first four years of ownership and major wear items covered for the first 12 months of ownership.  That's the kind of hassle-free commitment people look for in a vehicle — and what they need to hear to help you seal the deal.
This Warranty Section provides a quick reference to current FIAT Warranties and shows you how we stack up against the competition. Of course, complete details of all warranties are always available via the FIAT 500 Warranty Book.

DID YOU KNOW?

FIAT 500 offers the same Basic Warranty coverage timelines as high-end nameplates such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Jaguar?

4-Year/50,000-Mile Basic Limited Warranty: Covers the complete vehicle against defects in factory-supplied materials and workmanship with exclusions such as tires1 or items added or changed after the vehicle has left the manufacturing plant. The 4/50 warranty covers the vehicle if, and only if, the FIAT was built for sale in the U.S., is registered in the U.S., is driven mainly in the U.S. and Canada and is operated and maintained in accordance with the Owner's Manual.
Roadside Assistance2: Four-year unlimited mileage Roadside Assistance provides free towing to the nearest dealership in the event a covered component should fail or for lockout, flat tire, out gas and batter jumpstart services.
Wear Items3: 12-month/12,000-miles, includes equipment and replacement or repair of wear items including brakes (rotors, pads, linings and drums), wiper blades, clutch discs or modular clutch assembly (as equipped), windshield and rear window, wheel alignment and wheel balancing. These warranty repairs or adjustments — including all parts and labor connected with them — will be made by the authorized FIAT repair facility at no charge, using new or remanufactured parts.
Federal Emission Warranty: The Federal Emission Warranty requires FIAT, by law, to warrant certain emissions parts for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
Warranty Restrictions: FIAT 500 Warranty does not cover the cost of repairing damage or conditions caused by:
  • fire or accident
  • abuse or neglect
  • misuse (e.g. driving over curbs or overloading)
  • tampering with the emissions systems or with a part that could affect the emissions systems
  • the use of used parts, even if they are originally supplied by Chrysler (however, authorized Chrysler/Mopar remanufactured parts are covered)
  • windshield or rear window damage from external objects
  • any changes made to the vehicle that are non-compliant with Chrysler
  • using any fluid that does not meet the minimum recommendations found in the Owner's Manual

1 Tires and wireless headphones (if equipped) are covered by their respective manufacturers' warranties.
2 Assistance services provided by Cross Country Motor Club, Inc. (in California, Cross Country Motor Club of California, Inc.).
3 All new U.S. built and registered FIAT vehicles are covered by Limited Corrosion Warranty.
