Riding cheap as cheap can be
An engine break down at 100,000 miles - I think that's OK for a 12 year old, 6 owners car, rebuilt after a front end crash...
If I'd had the experience in engine work that I have now, it still would "live"...
A perfect car for low budget thinking!
Normally you say do not buy a Fiat - everything will go wrong with it. But nothing goes wrong because there is nothing in it.
Have you ever tried to move things with a small passenger car? With a Panda there is no problem. You can unplug the seats all you need and with a driver's seat only you've got a full two meters for transportation.
And with small money also you can make as good performance as you like: stereo system, dark coloured windows, mobile phone, electric windows... everything is easy to install in this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
