Fun to drive
The car had had a lot of work on it before I bought it (new clutch etc).
In recent times I have had trouble with fuel leaks from the carburettor area - mainly due to hose clamps working loose, but also due to gunk in the fuel tank working through to the carburettor. The car has only cost me $300 in maintenance in two years though, so well worth it!
One thing I would not recommend is buying any Fiat with electric windows. The switches have cheap plastic in them which tends to melt on the circuit board. Unless you want to spend a lot of time with a soldering iron, try for one without electrics.
Despite the shoe-box comments, it has been a great first car, extremely nippy and economical.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
