How many Fiats have you had?

This is my list:

1988 - approx one year old Fiat X19, black. Looked great, lots of niggles and breakdowns, got rid.

2000 - brand new Punto Mia in an oyster silver colour, traded in approx three years later for a family sized car.

2011- five year old Punto in burgundy red, bought to help teach my son to drive. He wrote it off.

2016 - brand new Fiat 500 1.2 lounge, glam coral. So far so good.

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

2006 - new Grande Punto, drove really well but I ditched it in 2010 for some reason (forget what now).

2010 - a 2007 plate Panda. Fantastic car, that, until my family got too big.

2016 - I've had a 1989 Tipo 1.4 DGT for about 6 weeks. It's been fine until a couple of days ago and is currently on the drive in need of attention. Damn I love this car when it drives properly.

No plans to move away from Fiat. I've lived them since the 80s, but not had anywhere near enough!

Coupe next, I think!

I have had a million (slight exaggeration) cars.

Since DH and I got together we have had the four fiats mentioned, two corsas, the escorts, three volvos, a primera, almera and a quashqai, an MG and two Peugeots, and that's just the ones I remember. And I am still just in my forties lol.

Only 2; A brand new 2007 Black Panda Climbing. 4 miles on the clock when I started; 125,850 when I finished umpteen countries visited with her and a knackered prop shaft so now I've got a "64 Plate" ex demo Red Panda Cross. 2 great little 4x4s. They seem most at home in the mud on Salisbury Plain. Would love a Panda Bisley if time, space and money allowed.

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

I've had a few now, though when I get rid of my Bravo, not sure I'll be staying with Fiat. Nothing wrong with the Bravo, just nothing in the current Fiat line-up I'd buy.

1998 Fiat Seicento
2001 Fiat Brava
2003 Fiat Punto
2000 Fiat Brava
2004 Fiat Stilo
2009 Fiat Bravo (current car)

On the same team as Fiat, but their sister brand, I've owned some Alfa's too...

1996 Alfa 146
1991 Alfa 164
2003 Alfa 147
2000 Alfa 156
2000 Alfa 166
1998 Alfa GTV (current car)

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

27/05/2010-22/04/2014: 2004 '04' Punto 1.2 8v Active 5dr, metallic grey. Replacement for my 1st car, a Daewoo Matiz. Loved and cherished until the PAS failed, resulting in me trading it in for...

22/04/2014-present day: 2008 '08' Grande Punto 1.4 8v Eleganza 5dr, metallic black. My absolute pride and joy, which I hope to keep for as many years as I possibly can, then I intend to buy a 3rd Fiat to replace it.

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

2015 - Fiat Panda 2005 1.2 Dynamic

Second car I've ever owned, favourite I've ever driven (other than test driving some of the new ones at the dealer ;-) )

I'd love my next / future car to be a Panda top spec or even a 500 if the Panda doesn't get cruise control by then. we're talking 5 years so who knows!

Alternatively, if I end up with a family I'd get a 500L as I don't mind them.

If I come to a lot of money or a decent living I'd have a combo of a Panda Pop (basic) and a 124 Spider or 500X but complex cars aren't really my interest.

Think I'll stay loyal to Fiat given the sheer satisfaction I get from the Panda so far until the day (if) it ever comes that my Fiat lets me down.

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

Only 3 ??????.
Extensive rust proofing from new is the key to getting a car to last forever. When I bought my 2003 doblo it was brand new I drove it home and straight in to my garage where I stripped it down painted the whole underside with black hammerite paint and blasted Finnegan's waxoil into every possible hole and cavity .It was 6 weeks later when I brought it out on to the road !

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

I've owned many fiats, starting from my earliest one, a1957 500, followed by a fiat X19, another 500, a 126, a 124, onto a real supercar that I couldn't afford to sort out, a Fiat Dino Snyder, and a ultra rare Fiat Samantha, back to another fiat 500 that had been stored in a Liverpool fiat agents for years, last one was a Fiat UNO, all these were over 20 years ago, and looking at what most of these cars are now worth, I'd be minted!
