1999 Fiat Punto Mk1 ELX 16v 1.2 16v from UK and Ireland
Brilliant car; fast, economical and roomy
I had to replace my gearbox at 85000. Also a new clutch.
Cam belt at 58k and 99k.
Oil and filter every 5k.
Always well maintained, despite cost.
For a 1.2, this car has more than enough power for its size. Can't beat a good sprint in the morning to wake you up LOL.
Very well equipped, and the seats are fairly comfortable for long journeys.
The only thing is that they dent easy. Other than that, they are brilliant.
The power it has to offer is brilliant. I've often got 120mph out of it on a flat road, free revving the engine all the way to 7k. Can't beat that little kick at 5k LOL.
Very economical car. Combined driving 430 miles to tank of petrol, with the cat removed of course; unleashes a few horses LOL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
