Fiat 500 Owners are at risk for serious and expensive transmission problems in their vehicles.
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of Fiat 500 owners and lessees with vehicles containing the six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The problem with the Fiat 500 transmission
Fiat 500 uses a transmission that is essentially two three-speed manual transmissions merged and shifted electrically with two clutches. Using electrical controls rather than traditional hydraulics is supposed to help the transmission boost the fuel economy of the vehicle.
Since its launch, a sizable number of consumers have reported problems with the dual-clutch transmission, both online and to U.S. auto safety regulators, ranging from hard shifts at speed to not engaging any gear. Some owners have even reported the need for multiple transmission replacements. If you have experienced any problems with your Fiat dual-clutch transmission, please contact McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP to discuss to speak with an attorney at no charge.
