Friend of mine just brought his 2012 Fiat to the dealer because the oil light came on.
According to him, they say he needs a new engine because the rear main seal failed. I have no further details on it at the moment and he is out of warranty but is going to see if they will still honor it.
I did some quick research and it looks like this a known problem in the 500 community. Wondering if anyone out there in Oppo-land has had the same misfortune?
