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


For sheer joy of driving, the 500 can't be beat.
Pleasantly surprised by how quick it is.
Lot of the reviewers must not know downshifting a manual, which a car like this demands.
Ride is quite comfortable.
Roomier than would have thought.

Lots of the big truck/small package guys dumping on the Fiat but I'll take fun & 38 mpg anyday.
16 inch wheels look sharp and lots of ladies like to come to me to talk about my car.

Reliability of the 500 tested in England for last 5-6 years (What Car, some other sites).
It gets very good reviews and one site had it mid-pack in terms of long term reliabilty--ahead of BMW and Mercedes. Enjoying this car, and when is last time you said that?

Best Features

Driving manual 5 speed is great

Worst Features

Back seat pulls could be firmer
