Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre
Why use an Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre?
Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centres meet Fiat’s rigorous standards for service and quality, and they can ensure your car and warranty are fully protected to the level of quality that you purchased it at and therefore ensure that you keep your Fiat 100% Fiat
Some insurance companies may try to convince you that you should have it repaired at their Bodyshop and may not use genuine Fiat parts. This also includes Fiat’s Abarth Brand Cars.
Before your car is repaired, ask these three questions…
- Will you be using Fiat Genuine Parts on my vehicle – if not, why not?
- Can I have Fiat Genuine Parts used on my vehicle?
- Could non-genuine parts invalidate my warranty and Euro NCAP safety rating?
The Latest repair technology is used
As technology changes dramatically, Fiat invests heavily in training programmes for our approved body repairers to meet the high standards required to maintain Fiat vehicles.
For Complete peace of mind, only manufacturer’s original parts have been used on your vehicle (unless otherwise advised by your Fiat approved accident repair centre).
Your 5-year repair guarantee covers:
- Loss of gloss (for 1 year)
- Splitting or bursting of the paint film
- Lifting of the lacquer and/or other paint layers
- paint defects due to faults in the manufacturer’s products.
this guarantee is provided by your Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre and is validated and backed up by a warranty certificate which is given to you when your vehicle is returned after a repair is carried out.
This certificate MUST be stamped by your Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre, at the time of your repair to validate your Fiat Bodyshop 5 year repair guarantee.
How to get work done under the paint guarantee
If there is a defect, you must contact your Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre repairer and provide all the documentation given to you when your vehicle was repaired.
if a fault is found in the work done which is covered by the repair guarantee, a Sikkens expert will determine whether it is in fact covered by your repair guarantee:
If it is deemed that the fault is covered by the paint guarantee your Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre promises to carry out the work again to resolve the problem that has been found.
If the guarantee does not apply, your Fiat Approved Accident Repair Centre will tell you why. You will then have to decide whether or not to have the work redone at your own expense.
