Bargain Mid-engine Sports Car — Sweet car, rare and hard to find. Handles sick, 4cyl is kinda slow..120mph top. The car is easy to work on the the plastic panels are always rust and dent free. Car will pull .89G on stock tires from '85. I would reccomend one to anyone looking for a fun ride and good investment.

A Two-seat, Mid-engine Car That Performs Like A Sports Car. — The 1984 Pontiac Fiero was a trend setter that threatened the Chevy Corvette's niche and was shut down by Pontiac. Loved by almost everyone that owns one, the Fiero was a mid-engine 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder car that was originally slated to be a daily commuter car. But those who bought one found it was much more.

Often breaks down.

Fieros Are Getting Old, And You Need To Know How To Work On Them, Because Things Constantly Wear Out — Fieros are fun to drive because of the handling. They are great on twisty roads. I get 22 mpg, which isn't great, but not bad either. Many owners swap the engine to something more powerful, but mine has the stock 92-hp 4-cylinder engine.

Pros

Easily costomizable all the panel's can come off with relitive ease

Cons

If you are wide, or have a tall torso it will be snug fit, i am 6' 3" and can fit comfortably but i have a friend who is 5' 7" and has trouble getting in cause his torso is longer than mine

A Sporty Car That Isn't Exactly A Sports Car.........yet — Honestly i am biased because it is my first car and i basically raised it from the dead, because it is a 26 year old car i am defiantly going to be replacing a lot of the parts but at the moment it's running very smoothly at first it was noisy and the shocks sucked I've been driving it since January 2010 and the shocks are finally loosening up and the exhaust isn't as noisy so i am enjoying it very much since it is lower to the ground and wider than a normal car it can take turns at a faster rate without the G's, it only has a 4 banger in it, i plan on replacing that when i have the play money for it ;P , paint needs replacing (again 26 year old car) but as you can see at a distance it really isn't that bad it looks like crap but hey it's still turning heads down the street

Fiero Review — thes were the pace cars for races they are great for driving in the winter as long as the snow isn't too high because they are low to the ground, wide, short, even weight distarbution because of the engine being a centre engine not a front or rear.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Little Death Trap — I bought this beauty Last year and got it running for this summer. The 4-banger is sluggish but looking into it. Tranny is smooth and it sticks to the pavement like glue!! Looking into some rims and still an awsome work in progress.

A fun to drive head-turner.

Cons

Still needs a lot of work, and I'm not much of a gearhead.

My '84 Indy Fiero - A Work In Progress — Received my Indy Fiero in Oct '07 and finally got it running last spring. It's fun to drive but still needs to be driven a bit so the tranny loosens up more. Now that it runs, it's time to fix the electrical issues -- radio, trunk release, washer fluid pump, and trunk and front compartment lights don't work. Also need to replace the red decal stripe. But overall it's probably a 5 or 6.

Fieros Rock! — My first car. Got it running, and it runs smooth. Fun to drive/ride in, and has a quite bit of kick for a 4 cyl. It's a little rough, including lack of a/c, but it definatley has a lot of sassiness. Gas is good, and it looks pretty sporty, too!

Small, Fast, Agile Car Built For Fun, Yet Less Expensive Than Foreign Sports Cars! By Richard

I don't think I've mentioned how safe the Fiero is, but with its wide stance and agile cornering it's not very apt to turn over due to its low center of gravity even at higher speeds. Even though the ... Read More
