Takes my breath away!


800km: Car engine stalled after driving off after visiting shops. Dealer checked the car, but could not find anything wrong. Has not done it since!

5000km: Replaced turbo gasket, which was leaking oil!

From the start the dipped lights (projector H1 type) are very poor. Have been to the dealer and have set up the lights according to the factory settings. Compared with a new Bravo, same poor light emission. Bright lights more than adequate though!

General Comments:

Bravo describes it well. No comparable car on the market. Drives like a dream! Quick and very powerful!

Worth every cent I paid for it!

Fiat have got the right formula here!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
