Wow - what a great car! I love it!
I am an Italian car fanatic - always driven Alfas, but due to a new house, I down sized to my wonderful Punto "Fabrizzio the wonder Fiat". Don't get me wrong, Alfa is king, but I'm very happy with the Punto's performance - great around the city and on country driving (here in Australia). The 1.4 engine handles 130km/h with no problems!! 1.4 is considered small here in Oz.
The stereo is fantastic
The air conditioning copes well in the harsh West Australian heat.
The heater is like an oven, and the rear wiper is activated by reverse gear when the front wipers are on for perfect visuals - so clever!
As for that sexy Giugiaro Italian designed body? Need I say more :-)
Interior is fresh and funky, and all controls/dials easy to use and read.
I cannot fault this car; I have covered just over 10 000 kms and have had no trouble or issues! The build quality is great; no squeaks/rattles or ill fitting parts.
This is a top selling model, and I can see why - well done Fiat!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
