Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Seemed a good buy at time compared to Astra & Focus but has lost a fortune when I recently enquired about part-ex.
Servicing expensive at Fiat dealers, tyres std size so cheap, economical on petrol
On the road
Very nice drive, handles superbly around corners.
Very nippy, average 37mpg (town/ motorway every day), can't praise cornering enough
Living with it
Not a single problem with engine, but passenger door keeps failing (unable to open - not good on 3 door with pregnant wife).
Mine is black with alloys and personally I think it looks fantastic. When I first bought it people were always looking at it on road
Very comfortable, even on long journeys, lack of Aircon lets it down, having to look for a bigger car now I have 2 kids, was fine for 1
Security and Service
No alarm but deadlocking, immobiliser and red flashing led.
Had a lot of teething problems, but Sunwin Fiat Bradford worked on it time & time again, eventually giving me a free service for my troubles
Problems and Ownership
Very very happy, will be a shame to change it (5 door not an option as it looks awful!). Biggest criticism would be that you are unable to replace faulty headlight bulbs without removing bumper!
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
