1996 Fiat Cinquecento Sporting from UK and Ireland
Excellent fun for the younger driver
Clutch cable broke after 2 weeks of owning the car.
Replaced distributor coil costing £100.
Oil and water leaks.
Overheats in traffic jams (really annoying)
And finally... it keeps getting scratched and dented, every week I look at it and I see a new dent or scratch on the bodywork which is very very annoying.
Exceedingly nippy in town and will do 100mph on the motorway all day long. No major problems with this stunning yellow pocket rocket (yet). It beats a lot of those boy racer's cars off the mark at traffic lights and leaves a lot of cars standing on the motorway. This is my first car and will probably be the coolest car I will ever own!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have also had problems with mine.
Hand brake hasn't worked properly since I got it (had it a year and half).
Needed a new exhaust system after 3 months.
Had many problems when I took it for its MOT.
Over heats in traffic.
I think it must drink oil!
But despite all the above I can do 80 on the motorway without it blowing up, I drove 4 hours to wales in it, it has never broken down (yet), it has taken me on numerous 2 hour trips to Derbyshire and it is very cheap to run.
Overall I think that it is a great first car and would recommend it to anyone.
