just a bit of advice, if you'd prefer someone with a relatively rare car, make sure it's reliable, or if it breaks the parts don't mean it's off the road for a month or so while the parts are tracked down

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

I own a Punto mk2 ‘01 (Y) and I bought a corsa to do up and sell to pay for some mods. My corsa is a ‘00 (W) I think compared, they look ugly, dated and they rust like hell, what they paint them with, emulsion???? No wonder they're going bust! My fiat has ABS, PAS, more power, more stereo... its a year younger but you'd think it was 10years younger! Italians know how to build a beautiful car. Also, for what they are corsas seem to be £hi£ loads to insure.

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

Your mate sonds like a bit of an idiot for always slagging you off for the car you own. Tell him to grow up and get a life. Your car is a great little motor

Your car has far more character and style then his corsa will ever have, regardless of what ever he does to his car. Speaking from experience, i have driven that age of corsa in the past and they are not a very nice car to drive.

At the end of the day the car in which he drives, the company, GM, are in serious trouble and asking for government handouts just to keep them going, do you see Fiat in trouble - NO. Car sales may be low but, this can be said for all car manufacturers at the moment and, Fiat are not asking for government handouts.

Your mate knows bugger all and is just jumping on the band wagon of people who dislike Fiat's and cannot wait to have a pop at them. I get in work too by someone who owns a slow, old, boring golf so your not alone, i just laugh at him, tell me what you drive again.

Hope we have managed to help you

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

People always tell me how they're relatives or friends have had Fiats and they don't last etcetera. I think that's a load of rubbish, and I always say:
"Of course they won't last if your relatives or friends tore the living guts out of them" and that is probably the real reason, normally they can't find an answer to that!

Everyone's entitled to their own opinions of different cars. I for example am not keen on Vauxhall, but do I go round making an idiot of myself telling someone who owns a Vauxhall how rubbish I think their piece of metal is?! No.
