The unknown hero of the Fiat


The gearbox broke at the first year I bought it.

Some electrical problems, like overheating of the light system.

General Comments:

This car is incredibly fast, you depress the accelerator and then say goodbye everyone.

Some guys in their new cars could not believe it!!.

But the speed is one thing, and in the curves is like drive in a straight road.

The repair costs are lower than my bycycle repair costs.

You can do a lot of modifications on this car.

And finally, I had it during 11 years and still work perfectly.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
