I own a 1994 fiat uno Pacer SX 5dr 1.4 petrol with 5spd manual gearbox. this is my first vehicle, and most of the problems that I experienced were as a direct result of the previous owner's gross neglect of the car. it performs quite well for a 1400, and is relatively low-cost to maintain. its acceleration is phenomenal! handling is superb for a car of its class and weight... top speeds are not all that good (probably due to the condition of the clutch) and a few strange noises are coming from the front left wheel. overall it's a stunning car and I'm enjoying it! it's a good choice for a beginner car as it is very comfortable and phenomenally easy to drive... I think it deserves an 8/10!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have had exactly the same ocurrences as you. The noise that you hear on the left could possibly be the wheel like you say, but you might like to check the rear engine mounting, as this is a common problem with Uno's. The rubber gets worn out and the metal on metal noise starts.
I hope this will help.
