1998 Fiat Seicento Sporting Abarth 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Very good little town car
Head gasket went on the car prior to purchasing due to overheating issues; was fixed and a new cooling system and temperature gauge put in. No problems since.
Headlights aren't the best as they're only held on with cheap clips, which both have snapped so my headlights point at the floor, giving poor visibility at night. Easy fix but expensive for new head lights due to it being a common fault.
All round good car, nice to drive, ideal for a teen who wants the looks with cheap insurance. No problems when starting and starts first time.
Interior of the car is okay, some cheap plastic parts, but comfortable seats. Position of the automatic windows switch is slightly awkward.
Very good on petrol, I do roughly 400 miles a month on about £15.
Slight leak when going through a car wash, but only a small drip on both doors.
Good handling on the vehicle and very nippy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
