As part of our ongoing quality assessment and despite full endurance testing, we have discovered a potential risk with the weld on the front TV bracket fitted to a number of 2015 Auto Trail vehicles.
It has been identified that certain conditions can affect the structural integrity of the weld that holds the two pieces of the TV bracket together. In some situations this can lead to the weld failing allowing the TV to drop with no prior warning. Because of this small risk, we have decided to add a secondary latch to the front of the TV installations on all 2015 affected models detailed below within the build numbers; 151002 - 151536 inclusive, 155001 - 155534 inclusive and 158009 - 158055 inclusive (after these build numbers the bracket was modified with additional welds).
Please note that this rework is not required on all models within the above build numbers.

We are in the process of writing to all customers who are potentially affected by this issue asking them to contact their nearest dealer for this work to be carried out.

Possible problem with ignition switches
The fault affects vehicles built between October 2014 and June 2015 and there is apparently a possibility that the ignition may switch itself off while the vehicle is in motion. A new switch will be fitted and it takes about an hour to do. You could wait for the recall notice to drop through your door but due to the risk involved, give your local Fiat agent a call NOW!
The affected vehicles have chassis numbers in the range 2729501 to 2904391.
