After having had my Fiat 500 for two months, I feel that I know the car well, and can comment on it.
This car replaced a turbo diesel car, so needing fast acceleration was not a requirement. The first week of ownership, I put mine and my wife's road bikes on the back and took off on a thousand mile drive to participate in a week long bike ride in Northern Idaho. We had to cross the continental divide, and drive over many types of roads. This car has extremely comfortable seats, and except for the extreme climbs, has enough power. We averaged 35 mpg, for the trip. Since then, it is averaging 35-39 mpg with mostly city driving. We have had no problems, great a/c, and no rattles. Love this CAR
The comfortable seats, ease of parking, and the Blue and Me. The blue and me is extremely easy to use, and is very clear while placing calls. The USB connection for the Nano was wonderful, and was great for the long drive.
I wish that the cigarette lighter worked without having to have the engine running, and that there were partitions in the storage tray on the doors.
