If you've got a large dealer network like Arnold Clark in Scotland then chances are they'll do you a good deal.

When talking to one of the dealers he was telling me recently they had some Stilo wagons for 8800 which can't be bad eh!

woooo wait a sec before you go splashing out on a 1.2 Engine you might want to consider the 1.9 JTD 115bhp Engine....

I suggest you look at the prices from Jamjar....

its 9500 for one of the finest engines that the Stilo has to offer!

You test drive it and I assure you - you'll love it..
You say you do loads of miles... Well the JTD has one of the highest fuel economys in its class at 55mpg!!
That doesn't mean though it sacrifices its power oh no - when the VW drivers see me coming with the FIAT badge emblazoned on the front they quickly scarper!!

If you can afford the JTD go for it!



Metalic Jet Blue Fiat Stilo 3 door 1.9JTD with 17" Alloy wheels ; Beige Leather interior and ConnectNAV+....
hmmmm Gorgeous!

Problem with the diesel is its 2k dearer, and you've got to cover millions of miles to justify it, plus the higher servicing and the more expensive tax etc etc. I've just got a bit soured to Diesel motors.

How much is the "diesel-tax" in UK? Here in Finland it's so high that you'll have to drive 20000km+ per year to get any advantage in fuel costs.

Another question, why are you using mpg? I thought you were in metric system? ;)

Stilo'04, Loden Green, 17" alloys, 8spkr "hifi" system, debadged, tinted windows.

I was covering 25,000 miles a year with my Diesel, so even with its frequent servicing, and better economy it was working out worth my while.

But now my milage has dropped back to a more sane @15,000 miles a year, so a diesel really isn't work my while!

I tested 1.6 16V and 1.9 JTD (80 HP) and I think JTD is by far better option. 1.6 accelerated a little better (only when you measure it with watch :) ) but that was it. On the other side I now own 1.9 JTD MW (4 months, 15000 km) and it uses only 5,4 l/100 km compared to 8-9 l/100 km 1.6 used on test. But the worst disappointment was when I tried how 1.6 performed when "climbing" uphill, I had to shift to 4 gear on highway !? With only 2 passengers! So in the end the only bad thing about JTD is that awfully smell of Diesel when you gas it!

p.s.
In our country 1.6 is only 500 EUR cheaper than 80 HP JTD.

Stilo MW 1.9 80HP, Tiziano Red, Visteon MP3 player, extra tinted windows, cruise control

Well looks like i've done everything in reverse order. The bank loan is organised, and will be in my account tomorrow.

Off for a test drive hopefully on Saturday, so if all goes well i'll soon be the proud owner of my first Fiat. [8D]

Stilo 1.2 very good car and it gave an excellent perfomance accelarate from 0-100 in 13,7s the 6-gearbox utilize the engine perfect although its a little bit heavy 1.145 but the consuption is so small that you wont regret it buying one especially if its a dynamic.But the engine that shows the real Stilo is the 1.6.

Dec2002 - 5D 80 Fiat Stilo Dynamic Metal. Loden Green ASR/MSR/Brake Assist - Dual Zone Climate - Comfort Pack

Right i've had my test drive. I've been a looked a few other makes of car on offer (Fiesta Firefly. i've been a Ford man in the past).

Impressed with the car, but the test drive has sparked a few questions i need answering by the Stilo owners out there!

1. The door bins seem to be discoloured, mainly dark grey (as intended) but with light grey patches. Anyone else encountered this, did a cloth rinced in soapy water clear it! I'm assuming its just some oxydised glue residue or such which should clen off.

2. The door/ignition key! Both keys were attched to each other when i test drove the car and i noted that one key has the 3 remote buttons, (lock, unlock and boot) but the other key did not. Is this correct? Only one key with the remote functions?

do you reckon they'll bring out a small engined diesel stilo, maybe the 1.25 with a six speed box? it's more than capable in the punto, and with all those gears to choose from there should be enough power to keep moving.

Stilo 1.2 ACTIVE, that's a bit optimistic isn't it?
