1998 Fiat Siena EDX 1.3 MPI


An excellent small car for a family on a budget


The steering box was leaking fluid. It was replaced under warranty at 28000 kilometers.

Clutch replaced at 210000 kilometers.

Some electrical problems. The mechanic didn't told why.

Engine's oil consumption.

Water pump replaced at 190000 kilometers.

Underpowered. Too much pork for the little 1.3L engine.

General Comments:

Excellent car. Very good handling and braking.

Very comfortable and reliable.

Cheap to keep and repair. Easy to wrench on, it has plenty of space under the hood.

The air conditioner blows strong until the filter clogs.

Very good looking.

Dealer service needs improving.

Strong engine, my car has 225000 kilometers without a rebuild.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
