2000 Fiat Punto 60 S 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Nice car, but poorly constructed
Rubber seals on hinged area of the doors have fallen off and have had to be replaced.
Headlamp units had internal condensation and had to be replaced. One of them more than once.
Severe ingress of water on drivers floor area. Dealer has repaired this only after protest. According to the dealer, the water was coming in via the windscreen wiper mountings.
A nicely styled car with good performance and good mpg.
However the build quality leaves a lot to be desired making you wonder how it will fair several years down the road.
Dealer servicing costs are scandalous. £95 for the first service and £194 for the second one. £75 for front brake pads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
