Your Opinion.......

well hi im new to this site and need your help on a decision. After playing football for so long i picked up an injury and with a bit of exageration the hospital are willing to pay for a new car at the age of 16 and get to drive legally . I've decided to go for a punto 1.4 active sport but they said i can have anyone i like except for the sporting model or somthing like that so what one would you pick out of all the models ?

Thanks :]

Re: Your Opinion.......

The best thing you can do is go to a dealership and have a test drive. I work in a fiat dealership and most of the time when i drive gp's i cant tell if it is the 1.4 8v/16v or the 1.2 until i look under the bonnet!!! The main difference is the fuel consumtion!! The 1.4 is one thirsty mo fo!!
Thanks Bradderz17 thanked for this post

Re: Your Opinion.......

Is this some kind of joke, you are going to get a free brand new car from a state hospital for a knee injury?

Re: Your Opinion.......

Its when your blood doesn't clot, a lad I knew had it, and had a licence at 16 so he could drive himself to hospital



If you are bleeding to death, the last thing you want to do is DRIVE YOURSELF to the hospital

not a joke but sorta alot more to it, the pain can get pretty bad, and walking n stuff for a long time isnt the best idea etc

And its not the hospital that exactly pays for its some sorta stuff i dont really know the ins and outs of it...

no1 else got any opinions?

Re: Your Opinion.......

Surely you should be looking at an automatic model then.

So is it your left or right knee?
