Pros

Great for commuting. Great gas mileage.

Cons

The only con I have is that is a compact car. So there is not a lot of storage. BUT the back seats do fold down to allow for some hauling of bigger things.

Sporty Cute Convertible. — The absolute only thing I did not like was the ease to get into the back seat. Front seats did move forward enough for a tall person to easily get into the back. Back seats are comfortable but are more for kids and smaller people.

Weekender Car! — I loved the handling and the look of this little car. I'm a good sized person, weight and height, and this car was very accomodating to me. Not a long distance driver but short hjaunts would be fine. If your kids are chihuahuas you got it made but not a family car.

Fun And Sexy Car — overall love the car. would buy again,might get turbo and stick next time..like the color combo, not sure of how long red top will stay red. The car drives great overall and highway mileage is good. I would consider the electric version.

Pros

So cute and so fun to drive.  I'm still smiling even after 8 months.  The gas mileage is awesome.  The seats are super comfortable and the standard options are great.

Cons

Not much room although pretty good for such a small car.  It does suffer from a bit of road noise.  Some of the interior parts are fragile, like the arm rest and seat adjusters (plastic).

My Awesome Fiat 500 — We like it so much we bought a second for our daughter. It's the next best thing to being in Italy. You won't mistake it for a sports car as it's not the fastest thing on the planet but it is fun to drive and good looking.

Great Italian Car — These are such wonderful little cars. They're so much fun to drive. They get great fuel economy and the styling is surprising given the price. Heated leather seats, fixed glass roof, premium Bose audio system with satellite radio. They feel like little luxury cars. Some people don't like tiny cars but if you do then these are perfect!

Sharp Little Car! — Fiat is a car that is good for doing errons & is great on gas. Especially with the price of gas. I read review & decided to take it for a test drive. I was very surprised that for a little car there was a lot of room. Even my husband who is tall felt very comfortable. One feature I liked is the Bluetooth. It is great for hands free talking. The neatest thing is when someone stops you & asks what kind of car is that. Then you know you have a good looking car. Not only is it ctue & snappy I love to have fun decorating it with magnet flowers, stars & hearts for holidays. Just to show you how popular it is, in our community there are 6 Fiats, 3 red, 1 blue & 1 white & 1 green. Unfortunately we now only have room for 1 car & my husbands SUV won. We travel & need room for luggage & the Fiat doesn't fit the bill. I'm very sad but had lots fun with it.

Cute! — At 30-38 mpg a great little car for getting back and forth to work or running around a big city. Seats are adjustable so you don't feel like your riding on the road. Rear seats fold down for extra cargo space. Too small for a family of 4.

Everyone Should Drive One At Least One Time!! — It really is a fun car to drive!!!! Its Zippy and has a lot of power for a little economical car! People tell me it looks Awesome! I have a red car with standard red calapers. Just the other day I was out and my brother called me to pick up 3 boxes of hardwood. I pulled up to the wherehouse and the guy didn't believe me that my little car could fit 3 boxes at 8' long. WOW!! is what he said.
