I have had the 5-speed Fiat 500 for a few weeks now and so far I am happy. My main concern in getting this car was the quality - but getting a warranty with it eased the pain. When driving alone or in a big city: this is the car to have. It has prominent strengths and weaknesses.This car is not meant for offroad, mountain, or utility driving. It dominates normal streets and freeways though with small size, agility, and economy.

Comfortable driver/passenger seat
Ease of parking
Small Engine (slow)
Rear passenger headroom
No lock on gas cap/door
A/C light is not visible in daytime
