General Comments:

Fuel consumption is low.

The engine is relatively powerful.

The type of plastics used are very inferior quality.

I want to add that the dealer in Jordan has very inferior quality in dealing with customers. he does not pay any attention to customer satisfaction. I needed spare parts from the dealer, and he told me that there is no parts available for the Brava, and he would not bring those parts!!!

I wish to have the email address of the FIAT Company to convey my complaints.
