I love this car... I never had problems with it!


The catalytic converter broke at 140000km.

General Comments:

The Fiat Tipo is very spacious and it handles like a go-kart.

I love the design of this car! It looks much better than for example a VW Golf.

I have changed the tires to dimension 205/50/15 and now I can drive it very sportive.

On the other side it is quite loud inside from 130km/h upwards!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
