Howdy!
Been rallying around in a 1.9 sporting last few days and its been great. Although completely different spec to yours so shouldn't compare really.

Re: New Member, New Car

Hi, I'm a new member too...... I'm currently sitting in limbo having written off my old Astra and put down a deposit on a nearly new Croma. Now all I'm getting is negative comments regarding the decision to buy a Fiat.....

Please can anyone reassure me that the Croma Eleganza 1.9 Multijet 120 bhp is a good idea before I flip my lid. The price certainly seems right and the test drive was a dream (apart from the handbrake problem but I can live with that). Are there any reliability issues????

I'd be grateful of any feedback from existing owners....

Howdy Bucko!
I don't own a Croma but I do know that it shares alot of its mechanicals with the Vauxhall Signum, Also the Fiat Multijet engines are extremely good engines. I think you'll be very happy with your new car not only with the reliability but the exclusivity.

I suspect that the majority of those doubters haven't actually owned a Fiat and are basing their assumptions on what their dad told them in the 70's

Fiat are no worse and definately better than a lot of the mainstream manufacturers. Every brand has their problem vehicles, the difference is it's easier to slag off Italian than say VW because no one would believe you.

Be prepared to join the enlightened.
