1995 Fiat Cinquecento Sporting 1.1 from UK and Ireland
The seal around the fuel tank was leaking.
Seats where broken.
I love the car if I could live in side it I would. I have recently, but new bucket seats in side which make it look sporty and had the suspension lowered.
I have a induction kit on it as well
I think from a 1.1 sporting it is quick I have raced a corsa 1.5d and it didn't stand a chance.
It starts first time every morning even in the winter.
I have nothing bad to say about the car, and I would advise anyone to buy one if they have a chance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A race against a diesel? That's not saying too much really. The "Sporting" is hardly sporting, with a mere 54bhp, rather feeling faster than what it actually is, with the tinny build, low ride height and inaccurate speedometers.
Although saying that, I still agree that it is a far better car than many of its rivals, Fiesta's, Corsa's, 106's are boring in comparison.. it's got to be yellow though! Fun without breaking speed limits (by too much anyway!)

The car can handle any kind of road surface very well. Its "SPORT" seats and good visibility make it a perfect car. Remember the car was primarily designed for the town use.
The engine is quite lively. Do not want to discuss about the issue Cinquecento vs. Corsa diesel... never owned a Corsa diesel :-)
The fiat is a car... sporty type despite the 55 HP. Its gearbox is really a success with the 1.1 engine of "only" 55 HP.
