i am interested in a Brava that i have found.....its a 1.2 16 valve like i want

with 60,000 miles on it approximatly.

and a new clifford remote alarm.

he saying he wants £1300 for it with the bonnet and boot fixed (not sure on the problem)

does this sound reasonable
(year to follow shortly)

at a guess thats possibly a 99 S plate ?
Price is sounding fine for a 1.2 though.
Best ask what was up with the boot and bonnet, as that sounds odd.
One thing to check is if the timing belt has been done

the bonnet came off speedin apperently.

and the boot well he did a bit of do it yourself paint job on the back.

but if its a good car and i can fix those things cheaply then it may save me some money. cause he said he will shave some money off with the car damaged or fixed he wants more


fixed is 1300

That doesn't sound good, my bonnet has remained in place even when it's maxxed out downhill with a following tailwind! I think you might want to investigate a little further.

At motormech, a itlalian garage in brum. He had a coupe in where a guy was on the motorway and the bonnet flung open, wrapped over the roof. How he didnt smash it up i will never know. The coupe bonnet is huge.

I bought my bravo (2000, 1.2 , trofeo edition, @ 72.000km) in 2005 for £4000.

lol!:bang:

The prices have nothing to do with UK? Right? :) :eek:


Though i must confess that after 22.000km there's been ABSOLUTELY NO SERIOUS PROBLEM!:slayer: :worship:

Heard the odd story of the bonnet catches failing on the Marea and Brava. Happened to my mate in his Marea on the motorway. All of a sudden all he could see was a bonnet infront of the windscreen!!!

Should be fine as long as the bonnet catch is checked

Hi Mate I bought a Fiat Brava 80 cv 16 v S reg for £ 750 here in Glasgow..I would say its a good car for the price you pay and if well mantained and properly serviced by really professional Mechs and not serviced as usual here in U.k by neds or Mechs without any skills(y) in electronics or even basic knowledgde of motors! this car will serve you for years and years with no prob at all!

Ciao
