This is something I've thought about as well. My current car is a 2003 Hyundai Accent that's had all of 2 visits to the repair shop since I've owned it (brand new). However, I tossed around the idea of getting another one but it's just not an interesting car at all. I wanted something unique and fun to drive, so I rolled the dice and got the Fiat.Thanks for posting the list above. I am very close to moving forward with a purchase of a Pop model.
I'm not trying to be a Debbie-downer, but my only concern is reliability. Over the past 20 years, I have gone back and forth between VWs and Hondas, resulting in reliable/boring Hondas and troublesome/exciting VWs. I'd like to think this FIAT is reliable/exciting, for the price point. How are others feeling about reliability?
This is my feeling as well.I don't really care, though, as long as the car doesn't leave me stranded I'm OK. I can deal with small details like that.
my car was built in may.1. Misalignment of hood/bent hood hinge.
2. IPod USB cuts out when you turn lights on, bumpy road, hard acceleration.
3. Broken head light housing alignment tabs.
4. Thin spots in color coat of paint (light spots under clear coat)
5. Rattles from various loose interior items.
6. Head light alignment.
The only problem I've had with my Pop is that a bit of rubber at the top of the drivers side window got bent when I rolled the window up, so I'm trying to let it regain its normal shape, but this has happened to me on other cars before. So I don't really consider it a big deal.I am new to the forum and awaiting the arrival of the 500 I ordered 2 weeks ago. Browsing through the forum, it seems like owners are encountering a number of issues...what are the recurring problem areas to watch?
Ok....i don't know in messico but in europe in these days... http://www.autonews-123.de/j-d-power-bestatigt-fiat-500-mit-hochster-kundenzufriedenheit/
