1999 Fiat Seicento Sporting 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Very reliable, great runaround
The paint on the bonnet is of poor quality compared to the rest of the car. Fiat did not honour their paint warranty when a very acidic bird poop ate through the top layer & left the white undercoat showing through. Thought this was a bit bad customer service from the Fiat dealer.
The engine has started to get a bit sluggish.
The handling is great in the dry, somewhat slippery in the wet!
I find the types very expensive to replace as they are a rare size, not always stocked in all tyre shops.
I'm tall, and find there is plenty of room for the driver & passengers.
Insurance is cheap, shame the Fiat services are still so expensive! I don't take mine to Fiat any longer due to the high costs involved.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
