1978 FIAT 128 Review
Great engine, great ride, great seats and tremendous fun
Build quality and looks
Fiat 128, The Best Fun I Ever Had On 4 Wheels — This was my first car, it was 16 years old and had just 32k on the clock and 1 elderly owner, dont think it had ever done over 30mph. This car was an absolute hoot, very revvy lively engine sweet handling and a great ride with the comfiest seats of any car i have ever owned, and i have owned a few. This was from an era when fiat made the best small cars in the world that were more fun than anything made today. Ok, they were'nt exactly german build quality and it was no ferrari to look at. i had to replace all 4 wheel bearings, strip and rebuild the brakes (more than once) and have a new head gasket and admit i sold it when i got an mot advisory list as long as your arm. But who cares about that, perhaps I am being a little romantic, after all this was my first car, it carried me to more concerts and great nights out than i can remember, and even met my wife to be when i owned it(she loved it as much as me) but in the nearly 40k i covered in it i always loved it and if 1 came up for sale that hadn't crumbled to orange dust and i thought i could afford to run it i wouldn't hesitate to have it. Oh, it was good on fuel as well.

Like Most Usual Cars, You Really Need To Like The Car To Put Up With The Querks

the acceleration is quite high compared to other fiat 128, because it's a 2 door-racing model. the brakes are a bit bad I guess. the exterior is pretty messed up (my first car, so I bumped it a lot!) ... Read More

Cute And Simple
acceleration for the car years 1979 is not bad and still scary for others but handling need some adjustment, the parts are not easy to find but for who wants a cute and simple car, this is the right ... Read More
Nice Looking But Not Reliable. Typical Italian.
The car was in great condition (as good as a Fiat can get). I also had a hard top for this car. I have to say though it's the only car that I've sold for more than what I paid. Read More
