Summary:

Excellent, nothing else to say!

Faults:

At 3000 kilometers the brakes began to do plenty of noise, the problem was never solved by Fiat.

General Comments:

The motor 1.2 16V makes miracles.

Has plenty of room in the front and in the back.

Very silent even in bad roads, except brakes.

This car drives and handles superbly, great stability in curve.

The electric direction is excellent.

Low fuel consumption in highway.

A lot of equipment, safety equipment is great.

Excellent price/quality relation.

Better in everything when compared with my Golf IV 1.6, mainly in the reliability and build materials, I really don't know why people criticize fiat so much.

There is not doubt that nobody makes cars as the Italians.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
