1997 Fiat Bravo SX 1.4 from UK and Ireland
The gearbox failed at 27050.
Back window wiper does not work.
Speedo does not work.
This is the worst car I could have bought, the gear box failed 3 weeks after I purchased it. Fiat hold no responability for this, and I am taking them to court. My advice to anybody who is thinking of buying a Fiat is, don't bother.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hi, I had the same problem as you with the gear box and although FIAT put up a fight, as soon a court was mentioned they paid up, I got over a thousand pounds back.Let me know what happened to your car and if you got your money back. Jo.

I have just had a speedo fitted on my Fiat Bravo SX, there is a pin fitted on the dial which sits on 6 Miles an hour when engine is off, anyone know why. Please help.

Hi I've just read your comments on Fiat Bravo 1.6sx and I totally disagree. I have owned my car for 2 yrs now and the only work done was a new clutch & cam belt and the regular service and mot. This car is the most reliable car that I have owned as it has never broken down..

Hi. I had a fiat bravo sx, and I must say I really enjoyed driving it, it had really good steering and was pretty nippy for a 1.4. It did have poor fuel economy, and it also had overheating issues (which was due to the rubbish mechanic I used rather than the car) and never really recovered from that. I wouldn't buy another one.

To all fiat owners with complaints, unfortunately every vehicle has to be serviced may it be a fiat or mercedes, you must understand every vehicle which is used daily must be serviced and make note, with a mechanic who knows whats doing, i use my car every day and I have know problems I also service it when needed, but I have two friends who own mercedes benz which has not cost them a cent for repairs reason being they never see the day light.
