1998 Fiat Punto 60S 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Cheap and cheerful
Nothing, apart from an intermittent sticking seatbelt, which I have had to get the AA out to release on occasion. I haven't bothered getting the dealer to look at it as it only seems to happen on extremely cold mornings and the car is no longer under warranty.
Performance is adequate, but when cornering the car tends to roll a bit.
Long journeys can be uncomfortable since the seats do not provide much in the way of lumbar and thigh support.
The non-power assisted steering is fairly light, and the quality of the switchgear is excellent for a car of this price, although not quite up to VW standards.
The exterior design still looks young - much more aesthetically pleasing than most equivalently priced cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
