A mini-Corvette in the best sense
The cooling fan thermal switch failed.
The exhaust manifold gaskets leaked.
The headlight motor bushings needed replacement.
The ignition switch had a short and needed replacement.
Other than routine maintenance items (wear & tear), no additional major problems.
The Fiero is not a car I would consider taking on a long road trip (minimal trunk space, tight cabin, etc..). However, I absolutely love it for short blasts just for the sheer fun of driving.
I own a Cadillac Seville and a Mercedes-Benz for everything else, but drive the Fiero whenever I can justify it. I currently own 3 and would jump at the chance to purchase a new one were Pontiac to bring the car back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
