1986 Fiat Uno S 1.0 fire from UK and Ireland
The best all-round supermini of the 80's
Ignition switch was replaced at 80k miles.
Rear wheel bearings and clutch were replaced at 90k miles.
O/S CV joint at 96k.
Thermostat and handbrake at 112k.
The car has been very reliable, the engine runs on unleaded without any modification at all!
Very economical, 40mpg in the city and anything up to 58.8mpg on the motorway!
Nice to drive (only the Pug 205 can better Uno's handling) and ridiculously cheap to run. Very roomy too.
Wash the car once a month and you get no rust at all. Decent build quality and some Italian peculiarities (driving position), but still vastly superior to the Fiesta/Corsa.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
