1989 Fiat Tipo DGT 1.6 from Australia and New Zealand
Good cheap runner
Door latches and locks fail regularly. They only need to be lubed though.
Alternator failed, was rebuilt.
Clutch had judder, replaced.
Carburettor fell off! needed a new rubber mount.
CV boots leaked, were replaced. CV noisy, was replaced.
Rear wiper does not work.
This car is very reliable, cheap to run. Can be left outside and does not rust. Simple to work on, mechanics don't get grumpy with it.
Handles very good, could have more power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
