Common faults

Hi all,

I'm looking around for a hot hatch at the moment and the abarth evo is something rather special to me. That said however, reliability is a very big factor for me. Could you please give me an insight into what faults are common with the car? I'm looking for major faults rather than interior or entertainment type faults.

Thanks :-)

Lots of issues are crested by previous owners..

Lowering .. driveshafts
Electrics...damp in fusebox n botched interior wiring
Engine..lack or servicing/ against use-state of tune.

Most GP Common faults still apply

Re: Common faults

The one common fault I've come across is the wiper blade juddering. Seems to happen to quiet a few Evos and I've replaced my blades 3 times, still does it.
