Angry 2017 Giulia TI Lemon

Hi Everyone,
Just a word of warning if you are considering buying a Giulia TI. After reading Consumer Reports and Car and Driver I bought a new Giulia TI, 2017, in February 2017. At 3,955 miles the car spent 14 days in the shop for a fluid lead at the transmission output shaft seal. On November 2, 2017, at 9,000 miles, the car's fuel pump broke in rush hour traffic and then the entire electrical system shut down. The car spent another 13 days in the shop. The cumulative time in the shop in the first 8 months has been 27 days.

Chrysler offered me $1,500 to compensate for the inconvenience but in order to receive the money asked me to sign a waiver of liability so that I would not be able to enact a Lemon Law complaint in the future. Of course, I am declining this offer and have every expectation that the car will break down again soon and I will satisfy the Lemon Law provisions. Unless you have another car to use I recommend staying away from the Giulia TI.
