In my country, we have a lot of FIAT cars and spare parts are not very expensive, but I will never buy FIAT again.

My next car will be a German car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hello, I am also writing from Slovenia.

Do NOT make a mistake, with buying a German car, if you want reliability the only car which can give it to you is a JAPANESE car.

Read what experiences I had with a VW Polo 1.4 and with a Toyota Previa after 340.000 km!!

I own a FIAT 96 and I don't have any problems, I think you must bought a used car, that's the problem with used cars, I bought my FIAT with a dealers company, the clutch and the engine are very suitable, besides, the electrical devices work just fine. Nevertheless, if you want to buy a cheapest car, you can always buy a Japanese car, you can find lots and lots of spare parts in almost every place, but you won't have the stability of an European car.
