1998 Fiat Punto 60S 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Good value for money, easy to drive car
Cylinder head gasket blew at 38000miles, cost about £600 to get replaced, under warranty so it was painless.
Exhaust lasts till about 46000 miles.
Rear suspension starts to squeak over more severe bumps, but it was nothing serious.
Idling on engine was bit unstable.
Sprightly performance from 1.2 engine.
Goes fine on Motorway.
Can be under steer a bit in the wet.
Quiet car to drive. Steering was not power assisted, but very light.
Cheap to insure, good fuel consumption on motorway and about town.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
