Hi All,

We've just bought a 2012 Fiat 500 Lounge in Bossa Nova White with Italia Stripes. Bought it as a second car to ferry the kids around to various clubs and activities as we can't get ourselves to two places at once! Bought at a local garage, 3 month warranty and will be MOT'd & serviced. It's got 93k miles on it, with 16k of those coming in just the last year.
I've asked them to check that the cambelt has been done - what else lurks beneath the surface? I've read about rusty sumps. At that mileage, what sorts of things are likely to start breaking?

Thanks in advance,
Yeovil500

Thanks for the reply, going to pick it up this afternoon.
They're going to do the cambelt as they can't see it in the service record. Service and MOT too, and 3 months warranty so fingers crossed!
