2001 Fiat Stilo Dynamic 1.9 JTD




ASR+ESP Failure has been light up twice (25K and 53K kilometers, but gone after every car restart. Seem like BC bug since other people complain about same thing. Except service filters nothing went bad so far.

General Comments:

This car rides so smooth which I didn’t expect according to rumors I’ve heard other people claimed, before I've bout this car.

After 65K kilometers with no problems I'm very happy with this car in all, performance, comfort, economy. Compare to the other cars in class, this one has no comparison when it comes to the equipment and some very helpful things Fiat thought about when they build this car, like very good 6 speakers sounding stereo (even simple radio cassette player like mine) volume up along with speed-noise, rear shield wiper turns on when you backing up (if rainy), city steering wheel option, ASR+ESP, back seat slide and elevation, etc, that I only could have in dreams to get along with same class VW.

Brakes are brilliant and stop the car in very short distance (I could swear and by my experience that tests performed by some Auto magazines are fake when it comes to this car)

I've got 5L/100km average which is great.

Board computer with lot of information on it is another good thing Fiat made.

If next generation Stilo - Bravo has performance like this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
