Summary:

Great for minimalists

Faults:

Very bad quality of all parts.

Engine needed very much oil, blew at 9000 km.

Car wouldn't start at 15000 km due to ignition problems.

Started to rust after just two years.

Often had problems with the electrics.

General Comments:

Easy to park and very cheap to maintain, at least as long as nothing is broken.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a yellow Cinquecento and I love it. It's my sun shine. I paid 100 pounds for it and nothings gone wrong with it. It's a 1995, no rust and I think it's a girls car, not for boys!!!
