THE FIAT HAS CONTINUOUS DIFFICULTY SHIFTING GEARS. MANY TIMES IT WON'T SHIFT OUT OF 2ND OR 3RD GEAR AT ALL EVEN WHEN GOING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. THE RPM STAYS AT 3-4 WHEN THIS HAPPENS. IT IS ALSO DIFFICULT TO ACCELERATE WITHOUT FEELING LIKE THE CAR IS GOING TO EXPLODE. IN MID-NOVEMBER I WAS LOOKING ONLINE AS TO A POSSIBLE PROBLEM AND FOUND A RECALL "S34" THAT BEGAN ON 11/10/16 WHERE IT IS DESCRIBED AS "THE CLUTCH DIAPHRAGM SPRING CAN FRACTURE & FAIL, CAUSING AN INABILITY TO SWITCH GEARS". THE REMEDY WAS TO INSTALL A CLUTCH PEDAL LIMITER & CLUTCH PEDAL SWITCH. THE DEALER SAID THAT THERE WAS NO REMEDY AT THIS TIME. I WENT ON THIS WEBSITE AGAIN AND NOW THERE IS NO RECALLS LISTED? CALLED SEVERAL PEOPLE INCLUDING THE FCA RECALL LINE AND THERE ISN'T A RECALL FOR THIS CAR. WHEN I CHECKED ONLINE BEFORE I SAW MANY COMMENTS AND COMPLAINTS ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO GET THE RECALL S34 PART, SO A SOLUTION WAS NEVER REACHED.
