I’m looking to buy a fiat 500 as a run around as I have purchased a camper van- I have seen one 58 plate top
Of the range for £1800 so they rust and what sort of problems should I look out for? Thanks Kate

Kate, This is a North American Fiat forum. The 500 are slightly different here. The outside door handle will break, rear wheel bearing with fail prematurely. Same with the front drive half shafts. The rear hatchback wiring harness to the hatch door. Will fray and break. The Dualogic semi automatic transmissions have been known to have issues on the European cars.

I owned my NA 500 going on 9 years now, and still love the car.
No rust, or corrosion on the body, or under carriage. If you find a European 500. Go for the Twin air two cylinder engine. The fuel Economy is fantastic.
