1997 Fiat Marea SX 1.6 16v


Good looking, but fast-fading


Problems with the front suspension (after 40000 km, replaced of both suspension arms).

Leakage of oil from the transmission.

Noisy working the hand brake lever (due rusted cord).

Damaged air bag.

Corroding aluminium cases of the rear mirrors.

General Comments:

Good looking Italian style, unfortunately very delicate - especially the suspension.

Powerful engine, good acceleration and maximum speed higher than the manual states.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
