1996 Fiat Cinquecento 0.9 petrol from UK and Ireland
Small, cute and fun to drive
The handbrake cable had to be replaced straight after I bought it, after a problem was detected with the back brake components.
The handbrake, even though fixed is rather unreliable at times and I wouldn't park her on a steep hill!
She's cute and cuddly, but has a mean streak.
Good for fuel economy and low, low insurance, even for a young driver like me!
Fantastic handling, the brakes are highly effective (except a slightly suspicious handbrake!)
Very quiet even at high speed and amazingly huge windscreen, you can see for miles!
The only problem is the tiny boot, not big enough for two suitcases!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
