2000 Fiat Punto ELX 16v 1.25 from UK and Ireland
Good little run around..
Electric Power Steering had gone very lumpy several times. Motor got replaced under warranty. And again! Still lumpy so Fiat looked at it again an they said water/condensation must have got into the motor somehow. they removed the dash board and found a leak. in the process they caught the Air con pipe an caused the gas to leak. They just regassed it. Leaked out again an they replaced the pipe.
Had rear shockers reaplaced after 400 miles. (I owned from new...)
Handbreak mounting under the car came lose. Got welded back up by Fiat.
Slight misfire at idle. Fiat say "its OK" but think its the Lambder Probe...
Offside rear suspension arm came lose!!
The car is seriously economical. I'm averaging 68MPG from it via motorways AND town driving! Crackin handling and performance too! And the ELX gets a decent stereo and AMP in the boot!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
