2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Double Thumbs Up!

True story: I was driving around in our long-term 2012 Fiat 500 Sport this weekend and was stopped at a light in Santa Monica. I looked up at the inside mirror and the guy in the car behind me was giving me the double thumbs up (dramatized in the photo below by Borat.)

Granted, the guy was in a Prius, but still...

At first I thought the guy was just messing with me, but he was genuine. This car has been out for almost a year and it still elicits strong positive reactions. Additionally, I don't see too many 500s in car crazy LA, so it's still a bit of a novelty.

Even with its many faults, you can't help but like the Fiat 500. The Fiat 500 really is The Happy Car.
