1997 Fiat Palio EDX 1.3 mpi
Good balanced machine, though wouldn't buy it again
Noise form the trunk cover.
Noise from seat.
Windscreen already scratched.
Irregular performance of the engine, particularly the fuel supply.
Poor head lights.
Poor speaker output.
Noisy break system.
Low top speed. (140kms per hour without forcing the engine)
Instrument panel is very poor.
Unforgivable the lack of RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) indicator.
The fuel supply seems to work improperly, since acceleration is irregular sometimes.
The dealer's service center doesn't seems to handle mechanical problems very well.
Poor technical display, though great attitude on attention.
Seats are confortable, but noisy.
I had to install high performance lights since factory headlights are very poor, specially on the highway.
Besides the noticed problems, it's a great car, with great performance.
I've flashed out Clio's, Corsa's and even Civic's.
But, I would give anyone a good advice, since I've driven almost all type of cars: from the price rate of this car, I would definitely recommend to buy a Ford Fiesta 1.3 or 1.6 16V, either one, since its performance is really stunning. That's the best car you could buy for this price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
