Editor's Overview

The 2016 Fiat 500X wraps its comfortable and upscale-feeling SUV interior, decent cargo space, and fun driving dynamics in a uniquely Italian design that could come from nowhere but Fiat. It's even affordable, with prices for a nicely equipped model solidly in the mid-$20,000 range. The downside is a suspension that many will find to be too stiff around town.

Classic and sporty green fiat 500x trekking.

I love how sporty yet feminine it is. It has an excellent sound system and both moon- and sunroofs. It is perfect for the city and countryside. It can fit in small spaces, but feels very roomy inside (utilizes space well). I like that it is higher off the ground, but still has all the benefits of a small car. I love the colors it comes in, the interior options it has, and the fact that it is almost three years old, but still looks brand new.

The Fiat 500X is the vehicle that can suit all your needs.

The Fiat 500x is a very good vehicle to have. It's practical, very spacious for cargo, and seats 5. The split folding back seats is very helpful when moving cargo. This vehicle is good on gas mileage and has multiple driving modes. One problem I have with this car is that the speed lacks when stepping on the gas. Comfortable ride and easy to maneuver and park. The backup camera is one of my favorite features, as is the signal warning light.

Fiat 500X is the crossover SUV of my dreams!

I really like this car. It is small, but speedy. It is high enough off the ground, that I still feel safe, but not too tall that I can't see over the hood. I've had this vehicle for over two years now, and I really love it. I would recommend a fiat to all of my friends. It has good gas mileage, cute design, and a comfy interior that makes for a smooth driving experience. Great car!

Power Train > Automatic Transmission Jul 11, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 11, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V529000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee and 2015 Chrysler 200, Jeep Renegade, RAM ProMaster, and 2016 Fiat 500X vehicles equipped with 9-speed automatic transmissions. The transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, and as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral. On August 29, 2016 Chrysler added the 2016 Fiat 500X vehicles to this recall.
Consequence:
If the vehicle unexpectedly shifts to neutral, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, dealers will reprogram the Powertrain Control Module and the Transmission Control Module and if necessary replace the transaxle range sensor wire harness, free of charge. The recall began on November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S55.
