Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

The Fiat Panda, is just not a car. It is a personality. A state of mind. The salesman told me: "When you buy this car you buy yourself a lifestyle". And he was right. I'm moving to the states now, and considered selling the car.... but I couldn't. We have had our disputes, like a normal married couple, but we've always made up!

Fiat Panda 1000CL, is a fun car to drive. It's like driving a "Bumper-car".

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

No way, only Panda style will survive!!
