08 1.4 Brake failure on 4 month old car - Wowee
Is there any history of this?

A member of my family acquired a Grande Punto 1.4 Auto back in June, it has since covered 4K miles of ordinary road driving.

Yesterday on the way home from work, the ABS warning light came on. On getting the car home, the driver braked, a lound thud then came from somewhere in the rear of the car, and lost all braking capability, including operation of the parking brake.

The car is currently propped against the rockery (driveway is sloped, this semi-auto box has no Park option), waiting for the dealer to collect it.

I had warned against the reliability of Fiats, it seems they are no better than they have been in the past .
