Probably not going home anytime soon. But if I am I'll definitely let you know!
sorry for the late reply.Interesting, what issues has she had with it? I haven't really had too many issues with the Abarth (fortunately)
Oh damn! Yeah, that's pretty bad. Wheel bearings are a known weak point, I think I've had to replace both rears if I'm not mistaken (I'm at 78k miles). The rounded off bolts sounds like a shitty service center, which unfortunately is also far too common. Heck, on the Abarths they have a tendency to not make sure the lift is fully seated underneath the car and instead lift them up by the side skirts. That's why almost every Abarth you see will have side skirts that are peeling off.sorry for the late reply.
The two major issues we've had (2013 100k miles) . Every wheel hub had to be replaced. And the shift cable is somehow stretched and needs to be replaced as it will only go into 2nd and 4th gear.
Other smaller things like every bolt is rounded off or stripped on the bottom of the car for the splash guard, it's being held up with zipties....honestly the car compared to my 10 year older and double the miles Acura is in such a shitty state because of quality and materials. We will never buy FCA again.
