Re: Going in for an early First Service, 7500 Km's

Fiat Chrysler Australia specify it or else no warranty. They say Australia's harsh conditions make 6 month servicing necessary, though it's no harsher than the U.S. So it's really about money.

Re: Blown Turbo Hose

Some owners have reported this, lots of reports from the US owners. Sometimes the software updates fix it, sometimes not. Sometimes a relearn helps.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

It was still an effort getting that cable through the tailgate. I ended up poking a piece of PVC coated clothes line through, then taping the cable to it and pulling it through.

The diesel will do 30mpg on the highway, 19-20 around town, I'm getting 18 at the moment, and that is short trips in hilly area and mashing the right pedal. And I run aggressive ATs.
