Rust at Fiat Petra

Hi All,

I'm looking for Fiat Perta at this forum to add my thread. But I didn't find it at car list. So I choose Fiat Palio. As I think that Fiat Palio is hatchback car of Fiat Petra (Sedan).

I have question.

Is Fiat Perta suffer from rust or entire galvanized ?
Over the internet I saw a lot of stories that Fiat Petra suffer from bad rust.

another question. which is more better. Fiat Petra or Fiat (Brava/Marea) ?


Thanks in advance

Re: Rust at Fiat Petra

Hi
I have a 12 year old Petra and I stay very near to the sea. My car also has suffered from rust. One was in between on the hood
I got most of the rust treated a few years ago but still it's coming up again in few places but it's not a major cause of worry as of now
My car was submerged in 2005 Bombay floods, not sure if it's due to that it's prone to rust

Count yourself lucky that it wasn't a Lancia that was submerged as that would have dissolved before your eyes

Re: Rust at Fiat Petra

Was it lancia where the engine fell out after a few years due to rust on the mounting points ?
