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
