Think you have been very patient with the dealers as they have had 3 attempts to repair this fault . Especially since the fault was there from the day you got car and should have been picked up before delivery .Would suggest the boot opening whilst driving would constitute a danger to other road users re. contents spilling out , apart from the distraction to you and who ever is behind you . I would press Fiat customer services for a speedy result to this problem and if getting no satisfaction , seek legal advice about returning car to dealers. Would be interested in outcome , please keep us informed .

My 59 panda can be opened with the key only. Please tell me how your can be opened as I was unaware of there being other release mechanisms on this model
