Great Little Luigi!

2012 FIAT 500 Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)


We bought a 500 Sport in January.
1100 miles on it.
No issues other than the fact that the door panels are made of cheap plastic and will scratch easily.

Combined mpg so far is 34.
Not great but better the the Miata we sold.
Our 500 with manual trans. can get 40 on the Highway.
Hilly here in Western Washington State which may be dropping the combined mpg down.

Feel we got a fair deal from Fiat of Tacoma...Would work with them again.

The added cold air intake and reverse exhaust add to the fun factor.

Highly recommend this car.
First service due at 8500.
Will post more later.

Best Features

Rosso color, sunroof, zippy fun factor. Climate control. 7 Airbags. Manual transmission is a must.

Worst Features

Better interior plastic. A small middle placed console would be a good addition....Inconvenient to reach over to the glove box in front of passengers. Home-link would be nice but i guess its supposed to be a simple car.
