Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Staggering value secondhand.
Only slightly more expensive to ensure than my Punto but a bit thirsty on my urban crawl.
On the road
Never feels less than secure but not for looning about in.
Perfectly adequate given it is a small 16v engine in a heavy body.
Living with it
Contrary to popular myth, FIATS do start in the morning and can go more than mile before a wheel falls off.
I think it looks smart and sober but admittedly it's no real stunner. At least it is a bit different.
Lovely seats and loads of room, much better than rivals I tried.
Security and Service
Deadlock and anti-car jacking. No alarm though.
Mixed. Helpful enough staff but I question their knowledge of their products.
Problems and Ownership
Front wheel geometry destroyed tyres. Well known about on internet forums, eventually took it to a specialist to get it sorted.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
