Summary:

So far so good =)

Faults:

One coil broke the other day, £70 for a new one, 20 minute job, did it myself =)

Slight corrosion on front wings (bottom, stone chip).

Passenger door central lock defect.

Airbag light goes on/off of course =)

General Comments:

It's an old car with low mileage; air con, timing belt and front suspension were fixed prior to my take over.

Not much corrosion and it always starts.

It was a cheap car, but it's comfortable and offers very flexible solutions with seats and luggage space

Not too fast, but decent enough power. I mainly use it for long journeys.

Feel free to ask for tips =)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I would like to buy a Fiat Stilo 1.6 16v Dynamic 3 door (year 2002) with 100,500 miles for 650 pounds. The problem is that the engine light appears on the dashboard, not flashing and not beeping. This "little problem" could be a big, big problem? What would you do? I need advice ASAP. Thanks, Maria.
