2001 Fiat Brava SX 1.2


Fast and Reliable


Clutch made a horrible vibrations in the car, changed at 75k km and idle actuator must be changed each 40k km.

General Comments:

The car is just great, I use it 4 days a week on very fast motor way (120 km @ 150 to 180 km/h) and it's fantastic, it had a little problem with the lateral wind, but once you get used to the car it's no big deal.

Lots of room inside, it looks and drives good.

It handles very good on tight corners, but you must take care if you have more than 3 persons in the cars, the rear axle doesn't follow the front one.

It's my second Fiat (4 years exp.) I love it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with you the Barva 1.2 is one hell of a car.

I love this car.

I agree with you guys, I had mine one month ago, it's SX80, I'm having a rough time finding the spare parts though!! but no doubt it's a great ride. does anyone in Egypt have an operating manual for her?? I would like to borrow it or even buy it. please mail me abouzeid@gawab.com.

Hi all

I'm the original writer of this review, I would like to say that my brava has reached the 130,000 Km today!! without any problem everything in the car in original like the day I bought it!!!

This is the best car I ever had, but I'm really worried because of the dealer problem!! as you know there is no official Fiat dealer in Egypt right now!!

And by the way I have a user manual and technical manual, but in french!! I will be happy if anyone contacted me for any help.

Hi. I have a Fiat Brava 1600CC 16v. I love this car, but the big problem is: there's still no dealer in Egypt for parts for the Brava.
