glad they bought a fiat

having had my stilo now for 7 years i was just wondering how many people are glad they bought a fiat.
Even with all the hassle (fiat agreeing to take it back if the fault they fixed 15 times in the first year, happened again) I still like the car.

Smile Re: glad they bought a fiat

As I have owned over 20 Fiats, all different models starting with a 1959 FIAT 600............
With just one, maybe two exceptions............then, yes I'm glad I bought a FIAT!!!

It's caused me some headaches, and I'd get around faster riding a camel, but I still love my Grande.

Better late to a meeting than early to the grave

This is my 3rd Fiat (if you include the poxy, sorry, polski fiat (125P) which seemed to suddenly change - almost overnight - from a quite luxurious, albeit 'boxy' motor into a rust heap with numerous mechanical problems.
Although to be fair, the mechanical problems were more to do with my inability to remove things like starter motor, alternator, exhaust - in fact, I believe the nuts & bolts were welded on rather than screwed together!

Yes, it was either a Fiat 500, Toyota Igo thing, Vauxhall, Peugeot or a Renualt Clio.

Re: glad they bought a fiat

Why isn't there a "Today Yes" option, for those that had a very turbulent time with one which went from being a supurb car to a broken down piece of junk and back again repeatedly?
