Fiats are reliable so that puts that old adage to bed.they look lovely alright pity they're about as reliable as a fiat.... and post forecourt re-sale is something that'll make you laugh...........once you don't buy one........
First off, no need to jump down my throat.Since ever... Fiats have this fake notion that they are useless vehicles with a terrible record for reliability when this simply isnt true in the real world.
If you knew anything about them then you would know what im saying is true.
And what made you buy x2 if they were that bad ?fix it again tomorrow's are reliable thats news to me it must be the brand new ones because i had 2 a 99 and a 03 and both were unreliable dirtbox's
friends bravo - headgasket went
his sisters punto - headgasket went
my 1st car punto - headgasket went
fiat stilo- clutch went at 20k
and so on the list is endless
they were bought both from fiat when the first one popped we got a credit note for a full refund against a newer model which was supposedly stronger and more reliable i was young and dumb plus the other half liked the stilo and we were car sharing at the time but i learned my lesson the hard way i can honestly say that i will never ever own one again because they are unreliable they are fancy on the outside but grade A dirt underneath imo.And what made you buy x2 if they were that bad ?
Ive found that the fact is most Puntos / Bravos et al fell into hands were they were not maintained / serviced correctly (cheap and cheerful) Past into hands of first time drivers coupled with bad maintenance history thats going to cause problems.
They certainly do not deserve the generic F I A T tagline.
Any way back to the OP post. I like them and the pricing is actually pretty good, they have gotten it right!
My Flatmate had x2 PuntosYea Fiats are fine for what they are, cheap cars, not built to last in most cases, I was only against the comment "fiats are reliable" Nobody in their right mind would say that. I'm sure some are, but 4/5 fiats are probably punto's, which certainly aren't reliable.
I also note Listermint who started by saying: "Fiats have this fake notion that they are useless vehicles with a terrible record for reliability when this simply isnt true in the real world.
If you knew anything about them then you would know what im saying is true." hasnt told us about his what I assume will be a huge past catalogue of fiat ownership yet.
