Summary:

The best and worst car I have ever owned

Faults:

Seats badly worn.

Clutch failed 2 times.

Exhaust catalyst failed 2 times.

Exhaust manifold cracked.

Timing belt failed 2 times.

Premature wear on brake disks.

Gearbox gave up after only 80.000 km.

General Comments:

Probably one of the most comfortable and practical family cars around.

However, during one year of ownership, repair costs were more than £6000,-

Will never buy a FIAT again!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
