1986 Fiat Panda 1000 CL 999cc petrol from UK and Ireland
A good alternative to taking the bus
A blown fuse - and it was very serious I can tell you... We actually had to replace it with another one.
Although it is very cheap, I will not beat around the bush by saying that it's lovely, nippy and full of life. Because it's horrific.
It is slow (although quite good in town because of the low gear ratios), it is uncomfortable and it's as ugly as a turtle after a night on the town, who hasn't slept in days, and who's face is rotting away. It IS, however, very cheap to run indeed and good if you're on a budget.
My advice is to save a bit more and look for a Peugeot 205.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
