Nearly everything that could have gone wrong went wrong.
Brakes wearing away (which after I got changed made no difference), usual wear and tear. The brakes are very bad in this car.
When I say every thing went wrong, I meant everything in the engine. I would explain everything but it would take too long. Briefly;
Because of "Fiat Fuel Injection", which is not 'injected' at all, just an Italian con. All this refers to is the electronic regulation of how much water, oil and petrol to mix. There are several electric components here that kept failing intermittently, and then like magic work again.
The Head Gasket blew and needed skimming.
Clutch Fluid needed filling every other day - garage could not find a leak.
Tyres changed too frequently (may be due to the lack of power - too much wheel spin).
There was a problem with the exhaust system.
The indicator lever clip broke.
The windscreen wiper blades did not fit properly.
Used to scream in sound when pulling away, like a Formula 1 car going 200mph, except I would only be accelerating from 0-20mph, and very slowly too.
Overall, I feel it would have been cheaper to own a Porche 911 for a year than the amount of money that I lost on this car.
I will never buy a Fiat, and I was so disappointed that I will never buy an Italian car again.
I would suggest if you read this review and you are considering getting any Fiat, DON'T, it will be the biggest mistake of your life.
If you are considering a first car, don't buy this car, insurance is not low enough to justify just how bad this car really is.
The interior is not too bad, however, it is not too good either. But it is comfortable as it is quite big on the inside for a small car.
There is only one good thing about this car. If it is your first car, because the driving is so difficult compared to any other car I have ever driven, you learn how to drive properly and so when you come to drive another car, you will be better than most of the other drivers on the road. This applies to how fast you can drive too, the reason for this is that because it is so slow you are always racing, and you learn how to get the most amount of speed possible out of a car. It's not much, but it is something.
