I also bought my Fiatt on a whim which is very unusual for me.
I had done a lot of internet research and was ready for a change.
One drive of the Fiatt 500 and I was sold.
I loved the variety of colors, the nimble handling, the pick up and the dealership was decent.
One thing that was very important was to buy fun with comfort and this car delivers.
It's small, but you are not sitting on the ground.
I am 5 ft. 6 and it's just an even turn and sit to be in the drivers' seat.
My driving is about 70/30 highway/city and I am getting about 35 to the gallon.
Then final deciding factor will be how it handles the roads in the winter, otherwise I am 100% happy.
Sun roof, nimble turn radius.
Needs better drink holder.
Two large drinks cannot fit in the front holder.
