My qubo 10 month old ay13ymf with 5800 miles on it has just had front drivers tyre replaced due to down to cloth, the rest of the tyre was as new, the passengers front has got a few miles left in it but not much, it's been to 2 different kwik-fits and both say same suspension is way out and it's a fiat issue due to being 10 months old, just don't think this is good and I need answers? Motability are not happy

You have a serious misalignment issue. Being this new and with such low mileage, the car should still be under warranty. The dealer will determine the cause and correct it. The worst alignment problems that could not be corrected were on the 1980's Ford Escorts and Tempos, but even those could squeeze 15,000 miles out of a set of tires.

Thanks for your reply
More has happened today
Had a bad few days !
Friday found drivers tyre down to cloth ( after 5800 miles)
Took it to kwik-fit for a new tyre I asked for tracking to be done and they said no,
So I came home and complained and was told to take it back Saturday for tracking and I got tracking print out
Still not happy I complained again and was told to take it to another kwik-fit on Friday for them to do tracking test and I got a tracking print out, what a surprise they were different
They told me to take it to fiat as there was something wrong I told fiat and gave them copies of the print outs and he said they needed to book it into look at so they made the appointment for for 26/03/14, 10 working days away,
Today
Was going up to visit my mum
my Motability car sounded bad so we turned around and headed home, on a bend the car snatched the steering wheel out my two hands and we headed for a ditch and farmers field,
After about 100ft we came to rest,
The front passengers side the suspension had snapped,
Good for a 2013 FIAT QUBO with 6100 miles
We both ok, just a bit tender and sore

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. My bad days always last six weeks. I thought my most recent streak had ended in Feb. When I had a major house fire, but I caught a head cold two days ago, so it's just entertaining now to sit back and see what's going to happen next.

Hope Fiat takes care of the problem for you.
