It's an excellent first car!
I was the second owner of this car and when I bought it the clutch was very worn out with only 60000km, still it lasted another 10000km with me then I've changed it.
Stuck thermostat and hence overheating, but was quickly replaced and no harm done to the engine.
I love this car. It's not the fastest one around, but I just love driving it. Maybe it's because it was my first car. It's very cheap to run and the Fiat Fire engine works great and has that typical Italian noise that makes you press that gas pedal. But it's very quiet on the inside.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
