Summary:

Beautifully brutal and effective

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Great car, really fast, very comfortable, great interiors.

The interior is very well designed, and it comes with great seats (racing style).

The sound system is superb. My came with a Blaupunkt CD radio with 4 speakers, 2 tweeters, and 1 subwoofer beautifully inserted in a dead space in the trunk.

The performance is superb, it really pushes you to your seat, and incredibly the 6th gear really has power. You insert it at 40kmh/h and it takes you to 200kmh/h. A REAL MACHINE.

I totally agree with your review. I owned a Punto Sporting for the last four years and I can honestly say that I didn't have a thing wrong with it in that entire time!

It's a great little car and lots of fun to drive. I would recommend it to anyone.

I've now switched to a Seat Leon, but I'm missing my Punto like mad.

Summary:

A good looking car, it was a bargain!

Faults:

There was a scratch across the bonnet, which the dealer said they would rectify.

Condensation in headlights.

General Comments:

Absolutely amazing to drive!

Unbelievably comfortable, I love this car!

The stanadard CD player is excellent and the speaker setup is the best standard system I have seen!

The only thing this car needs is a set of alloys!

My car has now done 1000 miles, and has had to go in for a bonnet re-spray. a rear bumper re-spray, and some minor mechanical adjustments, all under warranty. The dealer however seemed very unhappy and was not very pleasant to talk to.

I have 18,000 on 2000 ELX and have found car to be really good. Especially bolt on wheel embellishers, CD, electrics faultless, and trip computer showing 53 mpg regularly! One crib, the direction indicator warning click is far too quiet and ditto light is too small and dim. Result- indicator left on regularly. Fiat head office said I was the only one to complain about this. BOB K. Rep of Ireland.
