My 500x- Fiat's outnumbering fords



Kuga is away car was wasted sitting about 6 days a week so downgraded ( halfing the monthly costs) to this which means I'm back in my beloved fiat again as my daily runner.

Bought this one so it's a keeper.
It's a 500x 1.6 multijet cross plus- top spec, £20 tax and 60mpg. That'll do me

Plans- Alfa wheels and lower it and get my plates on it. That's really it.
Time and money will be concentrated on the punto. Now I have more free cash.

Built in same factory as the punto 21 years apart, hope this lasts as long as that has

Re: My 500x- Fiat's outnumbering fords

Good to see it's arrived. I'll be interested to hear if you manage the 60 mpg cos mine only ever gets that on the motorway and I only average mid 40s for my commute. Admittedly that's mostly unlisted back roads though :lol:

Good going. I got 60 mpg when we did the trip to the Highlands a few years back including the run over Applecross. Other than that I definitely only get that with motorway driving. The 1.6 mjet appears to be most frugal with steady driving and that is not my usual style
