2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500: Arrivederci

May 07, 2012

Fiat at Carmax2.JPG After mulling it over for 11 days, we decided to sell our long term Fiat 500 to Carmax. Our prior appraisal had expired, so the car would need to be re-evaluated. Would Carmax offer us the same amount -- or less?

The second appraisal went much faster, since the car was already in the system. Carmax re-appraised the Fiat for $14,000, the same amount as last time. It wasn't too surprising: We had only driven the car 227 miles since we last brought it in. We took the offer and I was out of there in about an hour.

I'm going to miss our Fiat 500. It was a car that was fun to drive, fuel-efficient and garnered plenty of smiles and thumbs up from curious onlookers.

Final Odometer: 15,527 miles.
