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 By Brian

It was a good car, I bought it used and had to do a few things to it, unfortunately I live in the salt belt and the car rust very badly and very quickly. They just know that the US does that and neve... Read More

My Baby By Mohamed

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

Nice Looking But Not Reliable. Typical Italian. By Kenny

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
