I love it


High-beam doesn't stay on.

Door stop makes loud cracking noise.

General Comments:

This Italian compact hatch is very underrated.

It handles well and rides OK.

The engine is a bit on the loud side, but at least it sounds fantastic.

Although this is the base model, it is pretty quick.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
