Summary:

A reliable hard-working lady

Faults:

The water pump failed and the body has some rust, that's why it is being repaired (by me) right now. This includes a full new paint.

General Comments:

This is not my daily car, but it's the one I use to go to my parent's country house because of the space it has.

It is stable and for a 1301 with over a ton weight it runs pretty good.

Another good Fiat product that has been unrecognized.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
