2013 Lounge with leather interior, 5 speed transmission, sunroof
It has about 97,000 km on it now.
Brakes were done on all 4 wheels at 50,000 km which is less than half the life of my previous car
Door handles replaced under warranty and are broke again
Centre armrest broken
Second set of tires
All four wheel bearings at 85,000 km
Shift linkage had the rubber grommet fail while on a trip to Florida at just under 90,000 km, only could reliably engage 3rd and 4th gear (the part was not available for 10 days, fortunately an independent garage in Sarasota was able to adapt another car's part, I can recommend D&R Automotive in Sarasota, very professional)
Rear hatch electronic release works intermittently, so often have to load/unload car through the doors
Seems to need a new headlight bulb every year or so, very easy to access so not a big deal
Exhaust is getting noisy, will have to get it checked
Today general warning ⚠ light came on, not sure what it is warning about

Interior has stood up well other than armrest
It drives without rattles and feels very solid
With winter tires it goes through some pretty deep snow
Paint still looks good except a few chips on the hood and a chunk of paint about an 1 inch 3/4 of an inch chipped off next to licence plate light

I'm curious how many miles folks have on their Fiats. I almost bought a used one awhile back but it sold from underneath me... Now I'm back in the market and I'm curious whose got the highest miles and how it's holding up! Also, be kinda cool to see how much driving these cars get.

TY

bought my Fiat 500c with 20k in September 2014.
It now has 90,000 October 2019.

I had to change the transmission once at 60k, other than that it's been fine.
