I have only had this car for a year, buying it second hand from a local dealer. It wasn’t my first choice, but my wife liked the colour and the test drive was very comfy.

Economy wise this is good, I use it for work and shopping and the occasional errands, only ever have to put £10 a week in it.

Comfort wise its OK, but I agree with the seats been uncomfortable on long journeys.

Nothing wrong has gone wrong with it so far, and it handles well on the country roads I use. Sound system is great, sic speakers is plenty enough for me and the quality is very good.

Not much I can fault with this although it would have been better if it had security fitted better.

"If you travel around the south of Italy you will see that average age of the FIAT cars there is about 12 years"

I would just like to comment on this statement, stating that this is due to the law of averages. Because the majority of cars being purchased in Italy (and I lived there for a year) are Fiats. So you are bound to get your share of Fiats that actually survive longer than your average Fiat (Also bear in mind that a car won't just explode, you can keep replacing parts ever 2 minutes until it's decades old.)

It seems to me that all Italian cars are all passion, very little logic. I owned a Fiat Uno myself for that year, and had the drained battery and an erratic idling issue.

I have had a used 2000 Fiat Brava 1.2 for 3 years and I love it! I am a home carer, which means that I use my car EVERY day (rain, snow, sun) for up to 8 hours and approx 250 miles a week. I am constantly stopping, starting and getting from A to B which are mostly short distances. It's a hard life for any car, but my Brava handles it brilliantly, has NEVER let me down, ride, handling and petrol consumption are excellent. My job kills cars very quickly, but my Brava is still hanging on in there! It's a great car, and it looks good, which is an added bonus!

Hi, I just want to know if the car is economical; how many kilometers it goes per liter? That's the main point. Thanks.
