Fiat cuts prices of brake repairs

By extending the range to cover Fiat and Alfa Romeo cars – the latter is owned by the Fiat Group – Fiat says brake replacement parts are now cut by up to a third.

Best-selling Fiat cars such as the 500, Panda, Grande Punto and Fiat Bravo are all available with the new brake kits, while the Alfa Romeo 147 and MiTo supermini also come with new brake parts.

“I’m delighted we have been able to bring down the prices of these important parts,” says Rob Calver, parts and services director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK.

“There’s no better place for customers to keep their Fiat and Alfa checked, repaired and operating to its optimum performance, than an official dealer.”

For drivers of older cars, a ‘Classic Line’ of brake kits has also been made available for the likes of the Alfa Romeo 156, original Fiat Punto and the Fiat Ulysse MPV.

Perrys Motors boasts Fiat dealerships in Amersham, Aylesbury and Portsmouth, and stocks the entire Fiat range. It also boasts an Alfa Romeo dealership on its Amersham site.

The extended range of brake kits are available now at all official Fiat and Alfa Romeo dealerships. A separate fitting kit will, says Fiat, cut the price of a replacement brake pad by 53 per cent on average.

This, says Calver, "means that Fiat’s authorised dealer network is now competitive in price with the aftermarket, offering even greater value and peace of mind for customers.’

The new fitted kits start from £128 for the Fiat 500, rising to £193 for the Fiat Bravo. The Alfa Romeo kits start from £178 for the Alfa 156 to £211 for the Alfa 147.
