1997 Fiat Cinquecento 1.1 fire tuned
Great little car - fun, fun, fun
I had the Fiat a week, then the clutch cable snapped.
The heater blower is not working, but apart from that, the Fiat seems fine. No odd noises, no smoking, nor oil leaks.
Fun, fun, fun - that's what this tiny Fiat is about. Of course it's not the last word in luxury or comfort, but it doesn't pretend to be. Some of the comments and moans about the Fiat Cinquecento are really pathetic, as most of it is usual wear and tear.
It's a nippy little car, and once you get it into 5th gear, she is more than capable of keeping up with the flow of traffic, and seems smooth and very agile.
Every time I drive it, it puts a smile on my face, and as I only paid £450 for her, she's worth every penny.
OK, so it's early days, but I do about 70 miles per day commuting, and everything feels tight and well screwed together. About 60 MPG is what I'm getting.
Great little car. Parts are dirt cheap, not expensive as some seem to say, and it will definitely make you enjoy driving again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
